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.

Happy Birthday.

You write some of the most well thought out and written stuff on this board

I can just about handle you driving like a pissed up crackhead and treating women like beanbags but I'm gonna say this once and once only Gene, stay out of Camberwick Green!

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.
