Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:24pm Clïff in Prägůe:

Fair enough..... but I can't say I've never heard a Curtis Mayrfield song I didn't love

Sinatra, Otis Redding, & Billie Holliday are definitely in the top 10, agree with you on that

  2:57pm Brendan:

@Cliff With any luck , citizenship, a passport, some hush money for customs, the new administration will let ya back in. Things have changed. We'll talk. They may throw you in the pokey overnight, but I'll spring for bail and pick you up in a late 70's sedan. We'll switch cars get some beer and a good hair jelly and some do a road trip. We may have to go underground and lay low.
