This morning I decided to root out my old LP of "A Festival of Carols in Brass," an old, old recording by the Philadelphia Orchestra's Brass Ensemble; it isn't Christmas for me without that album.

I ended up looking through my old LPs. I don't have many of them, but they do more or less make a time capsule of the mid Seventies to the early Eighties.  :laugh:

I pulled out an LP I've probably not listened to in, I don't know, 35 years? It's Dan Fogelberg's "Greatest Hits" album. Now, there was a singer who really had a way with a ballad.

(Anybody else remember him?)

I can't listen to this one without tearing up and almost bawling: "The Leader of the Band."

Oh yes, I remember Dan Fogelberg.

"Longer", "Same Auld Lang Syne", "Language of Love" were all faves of mine.


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

This was my favorite of his, a duet with Tim Weisberg--"Since You've Asked".  ''

I read yesterday that he actually did run into his high school sweetheart in a convenience store.

I suppose you wouldn't exactly call him Brokie-ish, but he did have a working ranch near Pagosa Springs.

I don't believe I've ever heard that one. It's very pretty. I like the melody.  :)
