Jim and DJML--
     Yes, i'm interested, but for a purely lazy, selfish (as always) reason.
     I have been trying to make a list of and collect recordings by 
the greater and lesser luminaries of this list--the greater being 
Messrs. Beebe, Hooks, etc.-- but it's hard to find out ALL the 
recordings these worthies have made or have played on.
     Then it struck me (not nearly hard enough, but enough to get my 
attention): why should i myself try to make such a list?  Wouldn't a 
reasonable person assume, Glaucon, that it would be likely that Mr. 
Beebe and Mr. Hooks might have a list of the recordings they have 
appeared on (separately, not necessarily together)?  I ain't talkin' 
'discography', just a list.
     If this is so, perhaps they would share such a list with their 
poorer brethren so that we might search out and gobble up the items 
we lack.  If this is NOT so (if they ain't no lists), well why the 
hell not?  Let's make some lists.
     Of course, i'm also interested in Mr. Beebe's new email-address 
because i like the way he writes and want to encourage him to write 
more good stuff to us.
     What say?
