That’s enough, bringing me back to about February.

“Long Long Time” by Linda Ronstadt sounds much better with just a guitar backing in this performance from “Playboy After Hours”:

Of the songs I didn’t know beforehand, my favorite is probably “Crying, Waiting, Hoping”, which I first heard on a Beatles cover from their BBC sessions.

“Resurrection Shuffle” caught my ear on the radio when I was just a kid. It’s one of those songs that’s been hard to find a copy of, since it was only a modest American hit.

iTunes added “This Party Sucks” and the original version of “I Can’t Stand The Rain”, which I have removed from the Wish List. “This Party Sucks” is fantastic…”that girl looks like Grace Jones!”
