he was as f*cked-up as you are."

To quote Procol Harum:

I know if I'd been wiser this would never have occurred
But I wallowed in my blindness so it's plain that I deserve
For the sin of self-indulgence when the truth was writ quite clear
I must spend my life amongst the dead who spend their lives in fear
Of a death that they're not sure of, of a life they can't control
It's all so simple really if you just look to your soul

(from Look to your soul)

Yes, those guys knew CDCDCD.

Or rather: In held 'twas in I - from Shine on brightly. Fantastic album.

Thanks. I'll approach with caution, then! ;)

Well, from the look to your soul section of the larger suite. Fantastic album indeed.

Oh, don't get me wrong, I love a lot of dissonant music! I shouldn't dismiss Yun's music so soon, as I haven't heard any of it. I think I'll check out some of his music on YouTube to see how it appeals to me. :)

Hah! I missed the rebound . . . .

Earlier: Dvorak's "Dumky" Trio.



Well, damned if that isn't a trio of Weilersteins:)

R. Strauss: Lieder (Jessye Norman/Geoffrey Parsons) - One of my favorite vocal recordings. Norman sounds great in these, but Parsons is equally fine.

That's a great recording. Was my introduction to both pieces, too.

Sounds great so far, Bruce, but I think CPO should hire a better translator, as I am reading from the liner notes of The Steal Step now...

Ha! I don't recall the notes (maybe that's the reason).  8)
