I say goodbye before...
I have no recourse apparently even if I no idea what I have done to breach the copyright law or my alleged violation of said laws. I have supported live music all my life in many shapes and form. I have a vast record collection still in use, I see 20 to 25 live acts a year and attend at least 3 or 4 major music festivals. I have contributed quite healthily to several kickstart and bandcamp start up albums too. If I could pay Tumblr dough for music mistakenly posted that needs it's copyright royalty paid I would do so...but it seems there is no recourse I am to be given the boot now. I want to thank you all for so very much for words, thoughts prayers and blessings....now if the boot doesn't come...

Looks like this is it…….this came first and I still have no idea which tune it is in reference too.  I have been careful and followed copyright guides as I can find them with my tune postings.  but…..they have bots to comb the files and I don’t I guess….

A song by Monsiuur Walker is always a bit of a throwback for me…..remember when curled up as spoons together against an unusually harsh Paris winter wind….smoking Gitanes and sipping Calvados while this shard of our eternity played on the box…..

Mr. Bojangles ~ Jerry Jeff Walker 

We talked about a million things…seemingly all at ones. those late night calls from Toronto to the west coast of Australia….how we loved sad songs on good days that were filled with sunny blue and the counterpoint of that sadness to remind…then the calls got fewer and fewer…read your last letter saying you were through with the marriage…then a postcard from Nepal and strange Christmas card two months after Christmas from Jaipur…..now I clutch in my hand a note from your 89 year old mother that you won’t be meeting me for that threatened glass of wine on the 40 anniversary of our break up.  So lovers stay in your heart and blood forever….even after that love you burned is gone!  For this and all of that I play what you called your favourite saddest song!

I have trolled through both dross and pearls of the written page this weekend doing marathon editing on an erotica anthology…..sigh…not quite what Brother Leo’s waxing lyric about…but t’is all the biz in the tower of scribe!
