      You can't spell L.A., or Los Angeles for that matter, without ALO.
      Looking forward to the return of the Orchestra and their Animals
      to the sweet confines of The Temple Bar next THU 2/10, spread
      the word to make the show if at all possible. That Wasserman
      set after ALO will be an added bonus, with Rob apparently
      playing with the Particle rhythym section, Eric Gould & Darren
      Pujalet. A gang of local freaks will be Particulated this weekend
      at Particle's pre-Super Bowl show at HOB-Sunset. Again, make it
      if you can, SoCal.

      Congrats on all of the great news from ALO-land. New Year's
      and CD Release were great moments in my personal 2004. The
      Tour De Amore, a return to High Sierra and a debut at Wakarusa
      are hopefully just the start of ALO's doing in 2005. Put in your two
      cents via email to any of your fave fests (10,000 Lakes in late July
      - Joshua Tree in early May - Baja Bash Summer TBD -Austin City
      Limits in Texas in SEP. - wherever works for you), help get ALO
      on the bill and into the best time slots and stages. They deserve
      the support, and the exposure....and Bonnaroo won't suffice.

      Not long ago someone spoke about ALO cover tunes, and cited
      a sweet Macy Gray song as a possibility. After hearing all of the
      fantastic covers ALO has done and considering Macy Gray's
      music, I realize this band can cover so much ground through
      their original interpretations of other artists' material. From
      "Welcome to the Jungle" to "Immigrant Song" to "Into the Mystic"
      to "Sleepwalk" to "Dancing Queen", just a few I've actiually heard.
      Listening to the recent Jerry Garcia release from Keane College
      - featuring a scaled back 4 piece JGB equal to ALO's quartet, I
      am often reminded of ALO and how far they can take the music
      they choose to cover. Both bands have done alot of the same
      covers, and ALO could pull off many of the tracks from this Keane
      College show. The entire 2nd disc "How Sweet It Is To Be Loved
      By You," "After Midnight > Eleanor Rigby > After Midnight" is
      sublime, and it's so parallel to what ALO can do. It's worth
      listening for comparison's sake, and for its own reasons.

      And that's not saying anything of ALO's catalog of original gold,
      released on Time Expander and Fly Between Falls so far and
      with so much more in stock for future CDs. Can't wait for it all.

      Sorry to ramble, thanks for listening, see you down the golden
      road....

      Jason
