knocking at the door, oh, it's the DMCA (again)...


somewhere the fun of blogging is going to be...
let's say, somewhat "less" when I receive messages like this...
..without any notice of whom's kneecaps... or whatsoever
blogger takes out another post...
...this time it was a strictly 1 song ode to
the Ode To Billie Joe-thing...

sad & unbelievable,
but OK,

here's a copy of what's was in my inbox:

(alas without the pics, both beautiful)

These are all instrumental versions.
The King Curtis track I especially mention,
'caue here you can actually hear how close a saxophone
can sound like the human voice!
If you feel you're missing out any of these tunes,
I'll advice you happy hunting for this somewhat
"bitter twisted" sounding set of wonderful instrumentals!

So sorry emile - seems to be the route these days - someone thinks they can make a buck - i hope you get beyond this - your site is very cathartic/cleansing/calgon.

Thank you
