Funny, I was just listening to Moon this morning (well, early afternoon
for most people) ... yeah, definitely good stuff tho I don't know that
I'd really need more than one album's worth; crucial piece of the
proto-rock puzzle. Swingin' stuff with a sense of humor ... "Grampa
Stole My Baby" and "Pipeliner's Blues" are just yr perfect
dorking-around-in-PJs waiting-for-coffee-machine soundtrack; and "Seven
Nights to Rock" beats the crap outta Haley (IMHO) even if it doesn't
make it to Sun/Chess levels. Hey, us balding fat guys need R'n'R role
Spade? OK, he was a thug IRL but either I've gotten the wrong stuff or
he didn't feel like wasting the nasty outside the home, cause what I've
heard is like the Lawrence Welk of western swing. Oh so oh-so-polite.

When you can't give anything, you can also receive nothing.
Through giving, you also receive. You can never stop giving.
When you have nothing more to give, you're dead.
