Groucho: Are you married? Got any kids? Contestant: Why yes, I have nine children. G (after slight double-take): Nine children!? Why so many? C: Well, I like children, and I really love my wife! G: Huh? I love my cigar, but I take it out of my mouth once in a while - Groucho Marx to a contestant on his quiz show in the 1950s

Folks like R.R. McLeod, or Stephan Wirtz are gifts from the gods... or need to get a life! Taking on such thankless tasks is, by its very nature, thankless (he said, stating the bleeding obvious), much like discography or bibliography. As with dancing bears, one doesn't criticize the choreography, but marvels that it's being done at all! McLeod at least has made a start on something, making OUR jobs just that bit more easy... and with, I presume a Scots accent as his norm?! How hard is that, to understand Black talk/song - don't forget the classic Japanese translation of the Elmore James tune "I Believe to my Soul" as "I Bleed Through my Soul". Maybe more poetic and romantic, but... .

May the farce be with you all.

Hey Pete,

Being a newcomer here, I should let you know that dingwall is Bob McLeod, and when his time and energy allow he is a regular poster here with great appreciation from all. He has contributed heavily to our Lemon Jefferson lyrics thread, which is slowly nearing completion. I'm sure Bob can speak for himself, but I just wanted you to know that you are speaking to THE MAN.

All for now.
