Some very good choices there Mr.Peacock. Well done.

Back in 1970 when I was a sophomore in high school, I literally wore out my album playing White Bird over and over--that's when you had to eyeball and drop the needle to get back to your favorite song...now I can just keep clicking! Thanks for yet another stroll down memory lane, Mr. Peacock! Truly love every word and visual you share!

Thanks everyone!

Hi Intrepid:
I think I might have overheard my older sister's playing "White Bird" on their record player...
and it has since become one of my favorite songs too.
