Certainly we have always understood that to create this site, was a major achievement, a feat. What we are more slowly learning in the recent weeks, as we have been brought to think more thoroughly through it than earlier, is that to have managed this site and especially its forum over the years, is a major achievement as well. I want to join all others in thanking you, bv, for that. Then I wo

Probably some sense there, GasLightStreet. If they are able to do it, it should be a privilege for them once again to tour an album as much as possible, given the apparently positive reception over all to HACKNEY DIAMONDS.

What would then have happened to Brian Jones early on? Could there have been a different Little Boy Blue and the Blue Boys, possibly also under another name? Might Brian have been able to recruit other band members therefrom? Could this have resulted in a blues band that never obtained a record contract? Instead played blues oriented concerts round London and disbanded after a couple of years?

Thank you, Doxa, for somehow confirming my wonder about "pop album". Yes, I read at least one poster missing an ingredient of dirt in the soundscape. And someone used, I think, it was a term "blanket", I believe as an objection. That about "blanket" I found rather interesting, because sometimes, during some moments, I had myself thought tentatively about a certa
