Addiction 2021.1

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

As sbxx would say, that's a nice Scattarini. I would think you got about $1600.00

I've got that album (Back in the high life?) and 3 other of his solo albums plus about all of the Traffic albums and the one Blind Faith album. I like his music, apparently.

$1300, but it was to a friend. He offered $1500, but I talked him down.

A buddy of mine dragged me to see Johnny Lee Hooker back in the 80's.

I'm glad I had friends like that.

I've got Low Spark on CD and Vinyl and Barley Corn on CD. I think that's about all of Traffic's stuff maybe I'm missing one or two.

Im surprised [MENTION=25227]Velo Vol[/MENTION] isn't digging this quality music.

I'm a bit of a freak about keeping bikes clean, and in Phoenix it's really easy to maintain. A little shower after the ride, and it's clean.

Oh my ... memories. Saw Blind Faith (their one/only concert tour) on 9 August '69 in Vancouver (B.C.), in the old barn (Pacific Coliseum). They were brilliant live; how could they not be w/Clapton, Baker, and Winwood?

Sigh; seems a long time ago (I was 18).

Low Spark, and Whiter Shade of Pale. Possibly the 2 greatest songs ever written.
