A Thought for Today
Praying never hurt anybody, but wouldn’t it be nice to spend more time doing it for someone other than ourselves?
I know you don't want the question again about when The E, S, and S will be available again, so I won't ask. I was able to get Sea and Sky some time ago on CD but never found The Earth. Why? Was it not as popular? I can't imagine why, Rod's interpretation of his own work is so moving and sensual.
BUT, I just have to say that The Earth has been my favorite Rod album forever, I truly wore out my first vinyl copy and was able to replace it from your site. I've memorized several pieces from that album just by listening over and over. My very favorite is "Sunday," could you share it with the rest of the readers?
Bless you all.
Leonore, lovely choice.

McKuen/Kerr work which found it's way onto CD was "The Sea".

record as saying he and Anita are looking at ways of issuing more of
their past work on CD so I wouldn't be surprised to read more of this in
the near future.
for your contribution, Leonore.
you'll all be delighted to hear that Rod will be back with you tomorrow.
Before I sign off, my friend and
yours, Sherilyn Bottoms from Atlanta, undergoes spinal surgery today and
will be away from the web site for some time while she recovers. Sheri,
our thoughts and prayers are with you.
