Solid enough if not a killer, heavy on a bunch of famous folks as much as folks I like get famous. Anybody know if the "Here Comes the Flood" from Robert Fripp's Exposure is available digitally? I've got it on cassette only, of all things.

Speaking of Steve Earle -- which you have done at least twice lately, I've noticed, it's right there in your lists -- I met him in Rome last month. The old lady and I were out strolling around the Trastavere neighborhood and there's Steve Earle sitting all by himself under a restaurant awning. Pretty cool. We spoke with him briefly and he invited us to his show that night. We didn't go, though. I don't know why, I guess we should have. Steve's a really nice guy, just a regular old friendly American sort. But amazingly bearded and talented. And now we're on a first name basis.

Could things finally be picking back up for me? Somehow I doubt it.

Go, Ahab! I would hope Earle would be nice or it would ruin his image for me.

I've got PG 3 and 4 German versions, but on vinyl. Some of the first things I'll digitize if I ever: 1)figure out the software, 2)stop being so damn lazy and get that turntable back out.
