i'm going to be honest, i've never spent that much time hating on any other team. i spend too much quality time hating on (or being disappointed in) my own. i think to actively hate another team is a learned experience. my kids have forever known i watch (and bleed) the cubs. but they've asked me, can i like the white sox too? of course you can. you can like any team you want to. and so they did. until my youngest was unfortunate enough to wear a cubs hat to school one day. on the bus were a couple of sox fans who ridiculed him for his hat. by the time he got off the bus...he hated the white sox and their fans for what happened. and that still lasts til this day.

listen bravefan, i can extend an olive branch. maybe mr h is right. i didn't have any derogatory word to say about your team. and god knows i am used to people ripping the cubs. hell, i don't think anyone rips them as often (or as badly) as i do. they are as dysfunctional as can be. but they are my dysfunctional team. so...lets be bigger people.

shake a hand? put it there? we can work it out, right? let's get on the right thing...because it's all about...letting go :oops:

I played off a comment made by MrH and I get attacked for it. I also get attacked for a comment that wasn't creative enough for you? And then I was called a child? I was having a little fun. I've actually lived through more bad Braves' years than good ones. The personal attacks I can do without. If i have offended, please forgive me. I'll tread lightly around you for now on. As for you MrH. beware...lol.

well....someone is not having a good valentines day season !!

me, i think the horns on this song, and on the album, really bring about a certain ambiance that, well...brings to mind wings: the early years...

so, lets hope their ebulant use will trigger a line-up addition for the next tour !

i agree wholeheartedly. i wouldn't mind him re-doing a lot of his back catalog.


I would love to see him re-do some of his (& his with John) oldies into a new cd. For example:
On the Wings of a Nightingale
And I Love Her
World Without Love
etc.

This Baby's Request is indeed equal to the original - I say equal because you can't replace Linda's contribution. But this new one is fantastic- and shows Baby's to be a much higher quality song than he was given credit for at the time (I believe the very negative Rolling Stone review said "Baby's Request sounds so much like someone else's song it probably is" or something like that.

y'know...i've never, ever let any 'reviewer' get in the way of making up my own mind...

i read reviews sometimes...dismiss them more often than not...

and tend, if i can help it, to only read any after i've viewed, read or listened to whatever the item may be...

i've loved BR since i 1st heard it, way back in the day...and love the new version, on it's own merits, as a new take on a classic gem...

people who worry about what a reviewer has to say...good or bad...is someone who can't make up their own mind to begin with

now...laughing at the stupidity of 'reviewers'...heck...real macca fans have been doing that for over 40 years, right ?
