Josh said...

Nice blog. I dig.

CrimsonCrow said...

Oh my! My first comment from someone I don't know (yet)!

Keep those cards and letters coming.

So, josh, care to tell me what you like about it? It might give me ideas for more...

Lee Hartsfeld said...

You leave me no choice but to post The Marcels' "Blue Moon." It's kind of a Halloween side, thanks to "American Werewolf."

Nice photo. Maybe I need to post my 1910 recording of "Narcissus," too.

Decisions, decisions....


CrimsonCrow said...

Didja notice my nod to you? Hint: look in the "I'm listening to..."

I look forward to the tunes...

jennabeeb said...

Only scanned the blues list...didn't happen to see 'BlueBird' by Buffalo Springfield..

I really like your unique perspective on life


CrimsonCrow said...

Hi jennabeeb!

Thanks for dropping by! I have Buffalo Springfield on vinyl but not mp3 format. I don't have the tools for ripping from vinyl. So sad.

Is Bluebird one of your favorites?

Anyway, thanks for your comment. Please drop by again.
