I saw Chris play at the Byron Bay Bluesfest yesterday.
This kid has got talent.

Tales from the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles ?

A friend of mine in Oklahoma wrote an album review of Suzanne Vega's 
"Tales from the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles"

After reading Andrew's review I said -
 "O.K Andrew I'll take your word on it and buy a copy tomorrow at the Byron Bluesfest and see if Suzanne will sign it for me and I'll tell her you gave it a glowing review in the RDR."

My signed copy of " Tales from the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles".

 I noticed the first song on the disc ran for 4:24 minutes.
As regular reader's of this blog know 424 was my dad's old cab number and I've had some very strange synchronicities involving the number 424.
And guess who else is visiting my hometown of Brisbane today ?
