    Let's get this resolved right away. I need to get my sleep, and if it isn't resolved soon, I may toss and turn all night wondering what are the consequences of such a serious topic.:-?

    Wow, BigDub, if you are loosing sleep over this we've either gotta:

    1) Increase your social life
    OR
    2) Give you more editing details to perform

    Spelled= "losing"
    Didn't you get the sarcasm??? It was dripping with it. Sorry to be too subtle.

    No, it's Ralph Lauren who does Chaps.

    Wow, you mean they made a special long window where you could buy the tickets, and it was still packed?? I guess I'd go just to see that window!

    Didn't you get the purposeful misspelling of loosing. I was giving you something to do. I was feeling sorry for you man... sarcasm or not... that's the kind of humanitarian that I am.

    My "like" was for the fabulous sarcasm. Well done, veery, well done. I also like it when people say, "the line was so long, and it wasn't moving at all". If it was moving, it would be a parade, or single file processional, wouldn't it? That's what lines do, sit still and don't move. :roll:

    Finally bought a copy of this CD, and (I know I'm gonna get bashed for this) it's not going to be one of my favorites. I like Botti's earlier work, I love what he is doing for the promotion of the instrument, and I have nothing but respect for who he is. This disc just has way too much over-the-top reverb and lushness for my taste. I don't dislike anything on it, but I really wish they would have put something with a bit of energy in there somewhere. It seems like almost every cut starts out with some sort of new-age piano or guitar meandering. From all the descriptions posted here I thought there would be something that really swung or had an edge to it. "Night Sessions", for example, has a good mix of selections. This whole disc just never catches fire (which I know is intentional).
