I have been driving a long way and, in the absence of anything to say, I shall merely share with you a txt exchange between me 'n' Nige to give you a flavour of my last couple of days.
Me: Byrds' Chimes of Freedom made me v happy. Stoke is vile.
Nige: God yes. On both counts I'm sure (tho I remember q liking Burton). Mind you, Dylan's Chimes at Newport....
Me: It is the most wonderful song and I don't think I rated it at the time. Probably the slight Ginsberg feel. I like that now. Came into S.... after 600 miles with top down and Mr Tambourine Man by Byrds at full ear bleed. I must grow up. Also there were rainbows.
Nige: Me neither. That sounds a perfect jrney. Why grow up? And rainbows!
Me: I know - the rainbows were a bit de trop.
