Jon, that's 1 of the nice things about this list, is the caring, given you
felt for the person who parted with the disc, Good for you.  Maybe whoever
owned it didn't like it, that would be a situation where everyone is happy.
Nice to read your posting, since I'll go days without checking my email,
sometimes, I tend to miss a lot, so if I ever don't respond to anything
anyone here sends, it's I'm a spaceshot with way too much email. I hope you
are well.  I remember Magic Muscle, Chris and I owned a few of their albums,
sadly I don't remember which ones, anymore. Well, I'm still here, I think.

Peace, prosperity friendship and hope,

Lots of love,

 	Dear all,
 		  I return... Hopefully there's still some people out there
and you're all OK!

 	I return because I recently had something of a collector's score,
after finding myself led to Discogs.com by Googling for Magic Muscle's _The
Pipe, The Roar and the Grid_, the only one of their albums I didn't have.
And lo it was there. I'd signed up for an account with them when trying to
get hold of an entirely different album (_Subkraut: U-Boats Wilkommen Hier_
by Vespero, which is excellent), but it turned out to be easier to get by
other routes so I never went any further. This time I did, and I kind of
cleaned out on several things I've been after for a long long time,
including a 7" of ICU's `Paradise Beach' and, holy of holies, DarXtar's

 	Well, at that point I had two thoughts. The first of them, and
meaner, was that when I saw DarXtar play in London and I afterwards talked
to the Commander about the unavailability of that album, I encouraged him to
re-release it as a CD-R so he could actually see some money out of it, and
he said no, he thought it was good that there should be some rarities. 
Well, now I have a copy and he got nothing from it, so I still think he
would have done better to do it my way. But then, a quickly following second
thought, this CD is rare than hen's teeth; if it's available, that probably
means someone's collection is being sold off. Which left me suddenly feeling
guilty and wondering: is everyone on BOC-L OK? Have I missed someone's final
departure into space in my absence? And, well, I thought I'd sign back on
and check... Yours all as of yore,
