Well, those are indeed Vanguard's big guns. But, where oh where have we seen these before? Recycled on a bunch of other LPs described on this web site! And Old Blue? (Attributed to Cisco, no less?) Well, not a terrible song, but certainly not one to reveal Cisco's wit, charm, or energy? Oh well.....

We welcome any suggestions, contributions, or questions. You send it, we'll consider using it. Help us spread the word. And the music. And thanks for visiting.
