It's the catalog number of the record. Wink

Kate Bush The Sensual World.

I was lucky enough to see SRV live (warmed up Robert Plant) right after detox (his) and In Step was released. Didn't want to let him leave the stage or our lives. Blistering!

On topic: my vote for most sublime SRV moment: "Riviera Paradise." It is my all time fav SRV tune. Genius. Amazing atmosphere. Trip out, sacred music.

Off Topic: Boomer, you are just trying to hard to CONTROL the stress. It cannot be controlled. Only managed. Start by recognizing it, acknowledging it, but not snapping back at it. See it as an old thing that you know well. You know how to let it roll off of you. Just try to take yourself out of the loop. A bit of perspective makes a big difference. As Tug McGraw used to say, the reason he could be so calm is that he knew that in a thousand years, no one would even remember anything about today.

Oh, and keep one of your favorite tunes in your head at all times. You'll be fine.

The easy part is keeping music in my head. Still trying to figure out that drum solo! The hard part is getting away, blowing off steam.....I recognize what the problem is - but I can't DO anything about it. Thats the hard part, especially working two jobs, trying to manage children, my wife's health, the IRS (long story!), and a host of other issues we all have, but I just can't seem to get things under control. So tonight I have promised myself to come up with something of an itinerary for a trip on the bike. This is all assuming that my wife can get some of those surgery things taken care of.

My sister suggested I go see a doc about my stress, but all he keeps telling me is take a vacation. All that edication to overstate the painfully obvious!

I feel for you Boom!
I picked up "The Best of 3 Dog Night" recently. What a great band from my very early childhood! Highly recommended.

In honor of seeing Darryl Hannah on the news last night - got me to thinking of Jackson Browne.

Who can show me what laughter means
And we'll fill in the missing colors
In each other's paint-by-number dreams..."
