to Jonas from Carol

Jonas-

Why 70’s?  The music I included in the 1st group of singles posted is
from the late 40’s through the 80’s.  Nothing more recent than that was
included because of possible copyright issues and those wouldn’t nec.
be legal, but more about being rude to friends in the music ‘scene’
here.

Nothing earlier because subsequent posts are scheduled to include those
eras.

Thanks for the Cautionary Tale via Hollywood.  But the safety of
nostalgia is found only in its epicenter.  I enjoy roving the borders
of history’s fictitious havens where the potential force is stronger
than a barricaded mob.

Nostalgia is, after all the whore of a failing empire.  Ask Louis
Farrakhan.

To Iris and Carol

Love the music, especially Herbie Hancock and the calypso singer called Lil Lois Farrakhan.
But nothing younger than the 70′s why is that?

Are these post from both of you or mostly from Iris, if it was Iris I would like to ask, why
only old?

I am a big fan of your work and could also see a link to the art you make, also seems
to hoover around the 70′s…Black Panthers, afro’s and so on…

and I just watched Woody Allens “Midnight in Paris”, which I guess had the message
“watch out for nostalgia, there might be hot chicks (or guys in your case) right in front of you selling you cole porter records that you forget about, when you go after memories of times, women and artists long gone”.

There is of course a certain amount of safety in nostalgia.
