Stream of Consciousness Review: The Record Company

The Record Company – Give It Back To You  Stream of Consciousness Review by Frank Critelli. Yes.This is exactly what I need to hear: self-help for badasses. Riffy acoustic country blues.

This Year’s Model 1955 – Rock ‘n’ Roll Call

http://cygnusradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/This-Years-Model-1955.mp3 So much much for 1955.

http://cygnusradio.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/This-Years-Model-1952-20150121.mp3 1952 is a coiling snake, stretching out to infinity. It’s not just a year. It’s endless. ***** See, what happened was that I tried a different method for pulling tracks, and ended up with several hours too much music. Unlike my normal method, I was then in a position of trying to cut perfectly
