Forgive me for being away so long, but I am getting older and lazy. I barely start my computer. Doing music, sometimes touring with the band to Argentina and working like always

Anyway, before answer this I would like to wish Happy 2008 for everyone (better late than never)
Now, this is a oustanding tale..and true one.

I am fan of ARS (Atlanta Rhythm Section), remember "spooky"?, even one of my favourites guitar players is Barry Bailey. Melodic, from rock to jazzy lines solos. His Les Paul Deluxe really sings

I have all ARS discography, even ARS 1972, first album, japanese version and out of print since years. Never left home until the past 12/24 that I decided to listen in my car.

I parked just two hours, but was enough for being robbed. Someone stolen my radio and with the radio goes my ARS cd..and this was the real bitter success: I missed THE cd. I did not care for the radio, anything but that cd

Next days I turned on my computer and started a search for a new copy...from ebay, to Amazon..I wrote stores from USA, UK, Japan, Spain...you name it. Nothing, always got same reply: sorry, out of print.

I even wrote in some forum of musicians telling my disgrace and asking for help.

One day I got mail, and the mail was from Barry Bailey himself
!
Just fragments of his kindness and goodwill letter

Dear Alejandro,
 
It has been brought to my attention that you have suffered the ordeal of a not so good old fashioned rip off and that you are and have been an ARS fan for some time. I'm  sorry to hear about the first part of that statement, but quite pleased to learn of the second. Having personal belongings stolen is bad enough, but when items are irreplaceable, it really hurts, i.e. sucks. I have tried to track down the Decca album, but not unlike you, I have also struck out. My only copy, of which I only own one, is also the Japanese issue and as far as I know that is the only one available....

...Anyway, good luck with a replacement CD and with all other things in life. Your loyalty and support is greatly appreciated.
 
Sincerely,
 
Barry Bailey
...

Well, folks this letter meant a lot for me, because I was pretty depressed feeling guilty for bring the cd in my car

Still goose bumps. Coming from one of my heroes and showing an extraordinary kindness

And in the end... 4 days ago I got one rare copy again from a Japanese store

I am going defend this copy with my life!  :D

Off-Topic Discussion / Kolchak - The Night Stalker. Do you remember?
« on: October 15, 2006, 03:15:05 PM »
 ;D ;D I just bought this TV show. I had forgotten how good was this show with Darren McGavin (he passed away in March 2006) as Carl Kolchak, a reporter for Chicago's Independent News Service whose news stories would focus on the supernatural and science fiction situations.

From 1974 and just three-disc set, which compiles all 20 episodes of the show you notice where the inspiration from X-Files comes, and even Chris Carter has often acknowledged the influence of Kolchak on The X-Files, and paid homage to that legacy by casting Darren McGavin in a two-time guest role as retired FBI Special Agent Arthur Dales — the first agent assigned to what later became the bureau's X-Files office.

It's also worth noting that Kolchak: The Night Stalker was one of the first series that Sopranos series creator and executive producer David Chase worked on as a staff writer

Lady in the Water

(M.Night Shyamalan)


Indeed, a bedtime story. A mythology story.
I noticed Disney rejected the project, I also know critic consensus hated this film, but to be honest.... to me the film was a little scary, enough funny, and deeply moving

Paul Giamatti is superb, I became a Giamatti's fan since the film Duet, a fantastic actor who can do anything. HE is the main reason I enjoy the film

[email protected]:   Clint wants to do another movie based on a legendary musician's life (like "Bird"), whom should he choose?  And what actor should play the lead role?

As Parker Clint could choose Cuba Gooding Jr., and I like Denzel Washington

[email protected]: What was the first Eastwood film you saw and did you become an instant fan?



Late but I am here:

First film was The GBU. "El bueno, El Malo y el Feo" in spanish. I saw 2  times the same day with my best friend
And a couple of days after, saw again.
Today I can't  remember how many time I saw this classic
The three characters (blondie, angels eyes and tuco) impact myself from the first minutes of the film.
The cowboys profile I knew until then, were Wayne, Lone Ranger..wich I love too, but this three new show a new profile: no so neat, violents, rude and the fact justice had nothing to do with pull a trigger.

Hey everybody! You are so kind as always, I mean..your are the best.
Sorry I am a little lost, but the thing is I am busy with the music.

We are almost ready to record again and at the same time doing more rehersals and research for the Beatle's week next november in Argentina. We are special guests

So I turn the computer just for mails or search partitures.

But today, is my day, so I stop all activities because I want to have a warm birthday surrounded with family and all my beloved friends like you

I miss you, and I promise I will take time to visit the forum more often and share our friendship

Salud amigos! (cheers)

I like that ... I tend to think along the same lines. But Claudia would have told him that the Lord is all-merciful, so maybe he'll manage to find some small measure of peace before he dies.

I'm not seeing the image you posted, however. The site doesn't allow direct links.


Maybe.. but I do not see Munny as a prosper and gentle business man in San Francisco, not the profile
I fixed image, beautiful one
