Comment:

I was hoping I wouldn't have to make another one of these for a while, but Steve has been back in the hospital twice in the past two weeks, once for a double-infection and now for a bad reaction to his medicine. His diastolic pressure dropped to 40 yesterday at 3 am, so I am going to see him at Barnes after work today.
And I know this is full of mostly usual suspects, but that is the Wad's bag. My favorite track is the last one, since it reminds me that Steve always introduces me as the "guy I used to live with in Mexico," and I add "but now we're just friends."
Please keep him in your prayers, no matter your creed or lack thereof.

Ain't nothing wrong with these usual suspects, that's for sure. This whole thing looks rocks-solid but 14-19 is probably my favorite stretch. Will be keeping Steve in my thoughts.

Looks great as always, and Ratchet's not wrong about the 14-19 stretch. And I know all about double infections and bad reactions to medicines (as well as multiple hospital trips) so I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Steve.

I love the title track (the Stones covering Robert Johnson, if I remember correctly), and your picks from Mott, Bowie, and Ian Hunter. And I really must say that Liar is just one of my all-time favorite classic Queen tracks ever!!

By the way, what session is Bob Dylan's Mutineer from?
