Egad: I guess I shouldn't try to write a post at 2:23 a.m. Even for the
terrible typist I am, this was really typo hash. Deadlines make rush
artists of us all - but at least I edit copy before sending which was
not the case in this post. But Bill's post reminded me of several of
those no-name checkout counter LP's I had tucked away with West Coasties
making up a no-brand name or made up band name. Now I have to find out
if my old Sherwood player can be rescued or start a hunt for a new one.
Damn, there goes the budget . . . and THANKS A LOT, BILL!! You Ozian
