I'm glad you like Mark Olson, George. I thought you would. He's so talented himself, and he's such a great complement to Victoria Williams. It really pleases me that they're a couple. God I love that whole PCR CD. The title track is sooo sooo sooooo beautiful. Lots of the songs are. They're so timeless, so easy, so American. I'd like to see Victoria back with him on the next release. She makes him better, much better. His last album, made with out her and the other Creekdippers, kind of stinks.

Wow, Marty's list just popped up as I proofed. I'm the man of the hour! I see mostly your stuff there, Marty, and mostly pretty great stuff, at that.

Hey Marty, I caught Hayden again a couple of weeks ago, this time in Philly. It was nothing like the DC show -- nowhere near as good. He was sandwiched between a couple of other acts and I think most people were there for the mediocre headliner, so I think Hayden found them annoying. We kind of did. We hate it when we're not among the oldest people in the room. Old people make us feel all fuddy duddy.

Hayden even busted the Philly crowd a little about its flatness. He also made fun in DC in June of the Philly audience he'd played for the previous night.

IMHO Hayden's right -- in general Philly audiences lack the enthusiasm of those in DC. I've seen many much better shows in DC (or Baltimore) than I have in Philly. Which is too bad, since Philly's much closer to home.

Thanks for the Hayden report, Ahab. Cities do have idiosyncratic affections, and I've often heard stories of great bands not being received well in certain cities and vice versa. Tim Rutili told me they rarely have good luck south of DC. The crowd loved them in DC, but the Atlanta show I saw in 04 (I think) was lightly attended.
