today's amazon music accompaniment took me back to 12 March 1971

although that soprano sax solo on "In Memory of Elizabeth Reed" is a little disconcerting, it does have me wondering what the band had in mind for adapting Coltrane's version of "My Favorite Things"

So, hmmm. Just got home from work, noticed a suspicious package in the mailbox. It sure looks like music to me. But......I haven't ordered anything that should be arriving this soon. So, WTF is it? Sweden?? Now, I have no clue.

Rip it open, and it's Rick Wakeman!! I canceled that order a LONG time ago, and even received confirmation that it was being canceled. So....did I pay for this?

Just found the email I received confirming cancellation from Music Glue on March 24th. I sent support an email asking if I was charged.

Eh.....so I'm even more confused. I had ordered the CD/DVD package for US $40'ish. I don't even know what they sent me. Looks like a standard CD to me. ???

My ears and your figures tell me that's acceptable for this material.

BTW, might someone kindly post the DR for the Kansas 5.1 Blu Ray in the appropriate thread?
The waveforms appear to be less crushed than the RBCD, just curious.

Giving them away then, it would seem, if not signed and numbered?
Yes, I wondered the same thing. When I canceled my original order, I told them the reason was because they said there would be multi-channel, then changed. So....

Hmmm - I thought I did. Let me check...
