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
Album Review: "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?

Tales from the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles


  1. Watching the TV news I thought I'd see you in the crowd with Kate in Brisbane!

  2. No,I've never been to anything like that Mike.If they come down my street like the Pope did in the 80's I might take a look,but I'm too tied from Friday's Bluesfest and resting up to go down again to Byron for Sunday's Bluesfest lineup.

  3. I'd buy the album based on nothing more than its title. The queen of pentacles is one of the most mysterious tarot cards.

    And what, what a reception for Kate!

  4. I'd also rather go to Byron than see William and Kate. I'm not a great Royalist but they seem to be good for tourism.

  5. After listening to the CD a few times Trish,I have to agree with Andrew on this album being worthy of purchase.
