  1. Albert Dailey.

    It’s excellent. I recommended it in August in this thread.
  2. Standards by non-standard people

    Not just you! It’s a very common mistake.
  3. Standards by non-standard people

    Raksin, not Raskin.
  4. Phil Schaap R.I.P.

    RIP. Heard a lot of great music from him in my formative years.
  5. Wondering if anyone can help locate this (see below). A friend from South Africa used to stream it, but it's disappeared from the services he used. I can find previews on Apple Music, but the full tracks don't seem to be available. Anyone have any ideas, leads, or suggestions?

    Here's another good one with Albert Dailey:
  7. Don Everly RIP

    You’re right. Sounds the same but without the other connotation!
  8. Don Everly RIP

    No. Bollock was their last name.
  9. Don Everly RIP

    It's funny how so many brother duos had issues over time. The Bollocks (Blue Sky Boys) and the Louvin Brothers were other examples.
  10. Don Everly RIP

    Don Everly, the older of the two Everly brothers, has passed away at age 84. I was fortunate enough to have seen the brothers perform together as an opening act for Simon & Garfunkel in 2003.https://www.nytimes.com/2021/08/22/obituaries/don-everly-older-brother-in-groundbreaking-rock-duo-dies-at-84.html?action=click&module=Well&pgtype=Homepage&section=Obituaries
  11. Found: William S. Fischer

    This reminds me of the folks who walk into a record store and say something like "I'm looking for this record. I don't remember who it is or the title, but I think it has a blue cover and the tune goes something like this -- dum to dum dee dum... You know the one." It can be frustrating trying to remember things like this!
  12. Laid off today - now what?

    Sorry to hear the news. It's an increasingly familiar story these days. My advice is to: 1. File for unemployment. 2. Register for social security. You may or may not want to begin collecting it, but it's important to at least register with social security if you haven't done so already. 3. File for medicare if you haven't done so already. It's most likely a better deal than switching to COBRA for health insurance. Losing your job is a "qualifying event" and you can sign up for Medicare if you haven't done so already without incurring a penalty for filing too late after you reach the qualifying age. 4. Enjoy the time off. Listen to music. Read things you want to read instead of things you need to read for work. Pursue your hobbies. Consider volunteering for worthwhile activities. 5. If you like what you were doing, consider consulting. If you do this, you might want to form an LLC to protect yourself. There may be some tax benefits for doing this as well. It may not seem like it at the moment, but it may really be a blessing in disguise.
  13. Putting CDs on I Phone via Mac & USB Superdrive

    Out of curiosity, how long does it take your iMac and Superdrive to "recognize" a CD after insertion? Mine used to be really fast. Now it often takes on the order of minute for the CD to be read and another 30 second to a minute to get the query about importing. I've tried contacting Apple to gain some insight into what might be happening, so far without any success.
  14. Khan Jamal: Infinity

    I got a download a couple of weeks ago. Well worth it.
