Jeff Cohen First and most important: Happy birthday to my absurdly wonderful wife Jessica Oppenheim! Take the day off, do only what you want to do and I'm hoping you'll include me in your celebrations! (Actually we've discussed this already... Continue reading
I have them all on vinyl, Nora. Who knew there'd be CDs in 1967? But for me, this was a great album that I didn't like as much as other great albums.
