Thanks to the original taper, Fast Freddie - he reigns!

Cool Sonics Series CSS-013 ::: Thanks to Ptomaine for turning me on Ellen, both solo and with Fear Itself! I think I made the unusual choice when I duped this to edit some stuff out, talking & maybe a couple of songs where Ellen worked on her yodelling (Sorry Ellen!), but I no longer remember. Whatever happened, this recording rolls along like a missing live album & it's a very enjoyable listen indeed. Recordings by this fine rock, folk & blues lady seem few & far between. I think her first few albums are incredible, Especially the very first one she recorded with Fear Itself. More recordings on the way. Until Sept. 2011, I suffered from SERIOUSLY slow internet access & am fixing my ratio as fast as I can, now that I am able. Enjoy, share, give, spread peace.

Kudos to Zongo for life support & Lochner for microphones & much more. A bow to Fast Freddie for running Video Dick's Record Emporium with the bathroom office full of tape decks. Thanks to Hanwaker (few among us can keep his pace) for over 30 years of trading & friendship. Mountains of gratitude to Davmar, D.White, Sanchez, Elliot, The Florida Kid, Kloiber, Zingg, JTW, Bershaw, Boston Gold, Weeks, Dixon, Moore, Gough & SO many more for all that collecting & sharing... Royal thanks to The Man In The Palace, Doc Tinker, Brinkhoffs, Barely Eatin', Reel Master Gaule, Dean Parrish & all those traders who housed & fed me through my music acquisition & travel years. Hats off to Brother Kent, Uncle Jake, Ena Whisnant (& her neighbor Frank) & his honor Ptomaine Thomas. Glasses raised to Byron for musical horizon expansion & much obliged to J & Thurston for keepin' my concert fires burnin' since my continental shift. Thanks to the Mods for keepin' DIME alive. Yers truly, Kneesfudd
