:roll: :lol:

I'm sure someone over there can bake you something up for your next JU. I only have two Pretty Things CDs anyway.

Album SF Sorrow

Song Baron Saturday

I think I have Parachute as part of a double LP reissue with SF Sorrow, but I can't remember last time I played it. Will dust it off pronto. I also have Emotions, but I only played it once; wasn't too impressed. I'll try to re-investigate.

Yeah...what he said.

Also Parachute is a great album.

I still like the Kinks

...and now I love it so much it's hard to imagine that there was a time not so long ago that I hadn't heard it. Definitely #1 for album. Song could be something from this ("She Was Tall, She Was High" maybe) or "Baron Saturday." Or maybe "Come and See Me." What an amazing band, at least for about 5 years.
