Am I late to the party?

Wishing you a happy birthday, Jimmy, while listening to some new Pink Floyd bootlegs. :D

I knew there was something I forgot to do. :(
Happy birthday Quaco, the one poster who tries to understand why I'm wrong rather than just laughing at me.

Letter #3: Two jolly ups ago, recalled Matt Wilson, Jimmy told me that I would never truly understand this Yes song (whose title escapes me--it's on Relayer, "The Gates of something-or-other...?") until I'd had my heart broken. He told me this at a bar at the end of the evening when it was just me, him, and Toomanyhatz. A classic moment, and one worth repeating.


A memory I will always treasure. That and being called "sweet" by Jimmy in a recent thread. Well, right backatcha, Jimmy. You are not only a total sweetheart, you are an endless source of wisdom, amusement, and a caring soul. I wish you the best of everything not only today but every day. Many hugz.

The song's Gates of Delerium, btw. In fact I bought Relayer used on Quaco's recommendation recently. Apparently I haven't suffered enough either. I didn't get it. I'll stick with The Yes Album and the first one. I'm with you on Abba, though.

I'm another one who clean forgot to make a contribution to the opening thread.

I always take the time to read and digest Quaco's posts as his tastes are very close to my own, but he has a wonderful knack of giving new insights into music I thought I knew so well. He makes me listen to old favourites with fresh ears.

I don't bother with birthday threads but I'll make an exception here. Happy Birthday Jimmy.

Quaco showed a side hitherto unexplored when he sent me some of his own ambient recordings and the Conet Recordings boxset. I shall endeavour to repay the favour soon.

Happy Birthday Jimmy.
