  2. Your Blog is amazing...terrific craftsmanship. You have truly done a splendid job in your research and execution. I can only imagine all the time it has taken to create this. You obviously love music and, in my opinion, have given back a large measure of what music has given you.

    I certainly speak for myself, and I bet I speak for most of the unvocal folks that visit your blog. Thank you so much for your efforts.
