Ha Ha. Thanks for your opinion. Me, I prefer to agree with Louis Armstrong's
opinion that it was a Wonderful song.

Thanks also for apologizing for the lack of taste of British public. No
doubt they reciprocate the gesture.

Hope you have a good day also in spite of the sour grapes. ;-) VBG


PS. At the same time let me say that I enjoyed your review of Chris Barber
immensely. Gratifying to hear that one of the greats is playing where the
kids are. As well as modifying his song list to make it more relevant to
them with the inclusion of "All Blues" which Miles Davis made famous. I was
surprised than no OKOM police jumped on the inclusion of a Miles tune.
