  1. What Harold said. And all this all in one place – and on top of a stellar Loud Friday. Gives, for me, a whole new meaning to “Rest in Peace grant unto them, O Lord, and may Light Perpetual shine upon them”. It’s Light Perpetual that shines upon us through their music.

    Thank you, MP. And tomorrow, Johnny Otis – truly, they were and still are great, and we are not worthy.

  2. This is sad news. Etta James is a big favourite of mine. Her seven Year Itch album is one of my all time favourites discs.
