410: Best wishes for 2014 and let's have it for miss Rigby [:-)


Hi.
Finally a new, proper post....
I know, I can add excuse upon excuse, but in the end
it's just me NOT posting new thematical terror.
Be reassured, I got stacks and stacks stashed away, 
me not posting new stuff ISN'T the same as me not
keeping my ears & mind open for this little blog.

This year's last post is a 2 hour, 25 song version fiesta
of the immortal fab four tune about that crazy lady
who couldn't afford to buy Uncle Ben's in the cornershop...

One of my fab 4 favourites, along with Here Comes The Sun,
Something and of course Come Togehther....

I hope you enjoy all these 25 versions and 
interpretations, two of my mos favs here are the very 
soulful rendition by Messengers Inc. and the one by Trudy Pitts.

I wish you all a good 2013-2014 celebration,
and I promise I'll be back soon here with more stuff,
also more often and always within the high
E-mile Says standard you guys & dolls grew
accustomed to [:-)

408: doing the devil, vol.10


Hi.
They say the devil's in the details....
I only know the lack of time I can spare to compose
new posts for my kinda moribund little baby-blog HAS
to be a result of the devil's doings too......
Or maybe it's just life as you and me know it
has some matter in the saying as well [:-)

Long story short, here's a new divine, disturbing and
also delightful devilish delivery.

A 50 track, nearly 4 hour crazy trip through the "Stygian Darkness".
I hope you like this 10th volume of an immortal E-mail Says series,
I am sure I won't get rid of it anytime soon this lifetime [:-)
