Didn't buy... I was given dozens of prerecorded cassette tapes (mostly 1980's pop music) by a friend! ...just at the time I was about to dump all my semi-vintage cassette gear and tapes (to make space) and concentrate on vinyl LP's. Anyway, I've now kept a few of the better cassettes, refurbished a decent Marantz player to use, and sold the rest of the cassettes "for a song" :-)

Last I bought was a LP released this past March or April I believe of a young rising star from a nearby town. Probably going to make it in the music world, I believe. Album name is "Texas Honey" by Ally Venable Band, featuring of course, the young lady Ally Marie Venable. Texas native from Kilgore, about 12 miles from my home. She just turned 20 and I attended a birthday bash at a little venue called the Back Porch. Genre is Blues Rock I suppose. Merchandise was available at the show, and she autographed it for me. Some are comparing her to SRV. She covers a few of his songs, and writes her own as well. Very nice young lady. Seems talented to me.


I'm right 97% of the time. Who cares about the other 4%!

Got some titles that are special?

Dude111, I learned recently, It's Gonna take a lotta Love, is written by Neil Young. I think he passed it off to the right singer. 8)
And they both have gotten a ton of royalties, I'm sure, good tune.

Watch the doughnut, not the hole.
Burl Ives, RIP, oldtimer.
