    I think “Mama Mia” should have been included on this ground-breaking album. Carlo Aonzo would have done a great job!

    At first glance it looks like some kind of gag that you would expect to see on Saturday Night Live . . . now, I will have to swing by and check it out.

    I broke into my local 7-11 last night and got my advance copy. I just wish that they would have had Sam Bush doing "S.O.S." instead of "Eagle". His solo on"Eagle" just didn't take off.

    Yessss! If only there was a 7-Eleven nearby, I’ll have to wait for a copy to show up in the Cafe classifieds...

    Sweet! There's a hidden track at the end with David Grisman Quintet playing Take A Chance On Me/Waterloo

    Alas, no 7-11 or Circle K in my area. I will wait till it is sold on late night TV.

    Rumor has it that Mel Bay is issuing the transcriptions of all the songs here along with TAB. I am looking forward for that, for sure.

    Yup, got my copy in Blue Earth Minnesota today. Blue Earth is home to the famous 60' tall Jolly Green Giant. Eat those peas kids, don't pick at them.

    Great concept, but don't you think they should have used an up-to-date photo for the cover?

    I was out and about today, stopped by two 7-Elevens and two Circle Ks. Looks like the CD hasn't made it to the OKC metro, which, of course, makes me want it all the more.

    Call me crazy, but that look works on Rhonda Vincent . . . .

    Great Photoshop efforts. That’s really funny.

    There is an actual ABBA museum in Stockholm. My Swedish friends asked if I would like to visit. I said, "Did I do something wrong?"

    Great outfits. All they need is the Mandolin Café logo on them somewhere.

    I could find no stores in Miami Fl. that carry this CD. So the distribution must be regional.
