From the inner sleeve of the Blood Sweat & Tears self titled 1969 debut.

If only this were as true today as it was in 1969. Although the bullet point telling folks to 'Just stack them up on your automatic changer and relax' makes me cringe. I can only assume it was someones automatic changer that was responsible for the skip in my new Tom Jones album...

By the way, this latest soiree with my vinyl mistress was made possible by the fine folks at TKO Records.

Just as Night Ranger reminds us You Can Still Rock in America, TKO reminds us you can still purchase vinyl in the OC. Specifically at 18948 Brookhurst St. Fountain Valley, CA. 92708 or Online at http://www.tkorecords.com/

Please pay them a visit so they stay in business and continue to feed my addiction.

While I don't want to be one of 'those' people, who apologizes for their absence after every post, I do feel a slight explanation is in order. Work is taking up an exorbitant amount of time right now, and I'm currently taking a week off to recoup. Henceforth, the postingness...

That, and I totally wanted to plug TKO so you'll go spend all your money there... And by 'You', I mean the 2 people who might occasionally still check this blog for updates...
