GIFT   WISH   LIST
(want to give me something?... here's all sorts of odds and ends to choose from)

I love giving and if I could, I'd be giving all the time (that's what I do, whenever I can)... maybe you've got the same love of giving... or maybe you've just got so much stuff or money that you don't know what to do with it... well, here's a solution to your problems (a willing and appreciative recipiant?)... oh whatever, seriously or sillily, what follows is an assortment of stuff I heard about or lost somewhere along the way (besides virtually any musical recording ever made) that would have me smiling a thank you in your direction... maybe one of these days I'll get one of those fancy amazon pages, but for now... feel free to be the generous wonderful person you know in your heart and share some of your wealth... someday I'll do my best to return the gift J

and actually, this page has just begun... it may offer some (or a lot of) insight into me if you look close... and yet, so many pieces are left out... so if you really want to know me (or really want to give me something), remind me to come back and update it J

(a used copy would be just fine)



  MUSIC I HOPE TO FIND  

(most of these are out of print, so you'd be a music angel, the best kind)
(NOTE: if you see an asterisk, check below the section {music, books, etc} for it means I received something by that artist, but I still would very much love receiving anything else by that artist... thank you so much for caring to read this... thank you even more if you bless me with a gift)

The Telling, Gavin Friday*, Robin Hitchcock, Patti Dahlstrom, Cindy Bullens, Virgin Prunes*, Lori Leiberman,

UPDATE:
I found Gavin's Each Man Kills The Thing He Loves... yay! (amazing I'd yay a find like this, considering the content, but you just have to know me to understand)... If I Die, I Die (actually a Virgin Prunes recording, but sometimes listed under Gavin) is still just out of reach (found it on eBay, but stopped bidding at $25... maybe next time)... I found The Telling's Blue Solitaire mentioned on a website, but it was listed as out of print... alas, the search continues...
