  1. Dear bbop, I've been reading your reviews with appreciation and admiration for years, but this one so perfectly captures the zeitgeist of the night, the energy in the room...you've outdone yourself! It's a truly great review.
  2. This is off-topic a bit but in organizing my old ssf souvenirs, I've discovered I have an extra little Solid Sound #6 schedule booklet from 2019. I don't need this extra so if somebody out there needs a ssf souvenir from 2019, just ask!

  4. I saw clips from that show...she & the band were on fire, and having so much fun!
  5. How can anyone not get swept up in this gorgeous album? It has surely proven to have staying power. The songs at 25 still feel so fresh! Congratulations, Wilco!
  6. I have been educated; thank you. Patron saint of the soccer. Now I get it. GO St. David GO!!!
  7. I will be there with you to celebrate such a good life. I still can't quite fathom that he's gone.
  8. How can you NOT hate that "EYE Ee Eye EE Eye" part in Eye Will Always Love You OOO OO OOOOO? Good call, Jeff.

  11. Many have wondered at the suddenness of Joe's passing. The sequence of events was that Joe had developed a massive infection in his leg, possibly related to a bowel breakage. (Autopsy will be done). There was consideration of amputation of the leg but by then the infection was overwhelming his system, and he died. It all happened with stunning rapidity. The only blessings in this are that when Joe first got to the hospital it had become obvious that surgery of some kind would be needed, and so Joe was sedated and comfortable; in no pain. When his situation was cascading downward, he was i
  12. With the deepest sadness, I have to announce that our beloved longtime member, Joe Campbell (JCamp) has died. He left us on Christmas Eve.

You deserve that. Bye until we meet again. Love, Donna

Anyway this is 4 days past but I'm still starry-eyed and dazzled from last Friday, seeing the brilliant Evie Sands and band at The Mint, a tiny club in L.A.

What an amazing and connected band Evie has, and what a force of nature she is!!! When they come around, you go see them. Don't miss them. Wow. I still can't keep the smile off my face. Th
  16. Thanks always for the insightful and detailed reviews that let those of us not able to be there, still "be there". You have a gift for capturing the mood.
