There is a video response on CMT, where Toby talks about JB and POW. Toby said, he didn't know what to think about the song and that it wasn't on his (Toby) label. He added he didn't know what they would do with it. Jimmy may have liked it better as a solo, it really doesn't matter to me. I keep tr...

Okay, here's my two cents about what happened on Regis and Kelly. (I'd tried to post a couple of times but the site was down at the time.) What turned me off was the banter of Regis and Kelly; I thought it was very negative and strained. Sarcasm can be great humor some of the time but they were cons...

Some good, some not so good. It is funny to see David Bowie in the Top 10 after he was nailed for lip-synching. I guess that's quality entertainment??!!

This is the NY Post, not the Times; the NY Times gave him a great review. This just strikes me as someone with very little imagination and understanding of adventure and fun. Oh well.

I think Ellen's laid back style and sense of humor will match up very well with Jimmy. I haven't caught her show that many times but what I've seen really seems to be about having fun, so I'm glad to see he'll be on. This will be a nice change of pace. If all TV appearances were like the Regis and K...

Found this thread the other day while searching for the ASPL lyrics. Jimmy's moustache...I always figured he shaved it as part of his getting away from the drugs thing. The timing would fit re. what he says in APLA50 and a couple of other interviews I've read (Rolling Stone from Sept.??). It also m...

It was actually the hurricanes that messed up the TATS video timing; they had a whole bunch of filming delays. As I said in a post on the POW single thread, I think it will be very interesting to see if country music (including RCA) has really embraced Jimmy as one of their own or whether they've ju...

While we're on the Carnival topic, I've got a question that bothers me so: In the credits it says that Alton Sanders is done by Ralph McDonald. I pick up Ralph's voice starting a song later in the CD, but the lyric sheet says Alton Sanders also opens the first song (after Herman Wouk's narration int...

Isn't Willie the only one that turned him down? Allison Krauss also turned him down for LTC Thanks for the add'l info re. Allison Krauss.

Because they play music *from* the tropics, not music *influenced* by the tropics. I understand what you're saying, but isn't something like OPH from the tropics?? Tahitian choirs, written in French Polynesia -- how much more tropical can you get?? (One could go on and on and on...Island?? Lone Pal...

Interesting game they play with radio; amazing timing for HGL given their rules. (Re. POW and Toby, if Mockingbird is the best they can do, I'll go back to CDs for a while.) Anyway, since that wall wouldn't come down, good for Jimmy for finding some way to get around it and get POW out there as a si...

Tropical channel is 94... no Jimmy.
How can you have a tropical channel with no Jimmy??! Wouldn't that kind of be like having a Caribbean bar with no rhum, a baseball game with no beer or peanuts, or a harbour with no boats? Just doesn't register to me.

Having pondered a bit more, it probably was all about getting the lens (which enables the lighthouse to run) -- kind of like finding the key that unlocks the door. An interesting piece of symbolism is that the lens was found in Florida -- you can search the world over for things that make a differen...

I think the book was all about getting the lighthouse running again. A key piece to that, of course, was getting the lens. With the lighthouse running, Cleopatra had her resting place and could die, Tully could move on, etc.
