I was just dropping about town. Some clown told me my gas cap was off-that is a WHOLE other story. I go by Positively Records. They have 4 cds for $20. I peruse the 'off" bin. This bin has THE STRANGE-Soundtracks,humor, JAZZ, Blues, Crooners....... I've decided to go commercial. Why should I carry the torch? Slash and Axl are cashing in. I have REAL talent. PAY ME. I've been "pounding" the HITS. Carole King+Carpenters+Carly Simon+-----female singers know how to move the needle. I need some gentle male infuence. I look . Mingus....No I have 20 Mingus albums-----------------Coltrane------NO! I must resist. They don't sell enough seats. Vocals------here we go. Babs Streisand......Rita Coolidge....Bette....NO! I need some male influence........ YES! Neil Diamond The Greatest Hits-1966-1992- $8.99-----Cds in the Off bin cost more....they are GOLD! Burt Bacharach's Greatest Hits- $4.99 and THE MOTHERLODE Barry Manilow-Ultimate Manilow-$4.99 I remember listening to Mandy through my sister's door in the 70's. Barry knows melody. The owner, Mitch, cuts me a break. I'm a GREAT customer/guy. "Give me $14." "Thanks Mitch. Can you order the first Dicks and AngelWitch cds for me?" "Sure." He looks them up. These cost $$$$$. "They will be in on Thursday. $25 for both." I hand him a $10 bill for deposit. "Thanks Mitch. See you soon." I get into the Dodge mini. Put in Barry.... OH MANDY........... Time to hit the music. Mommy needs some gold.
