Reverberi - Stairway To Heaven

So i've quietly slipped past 100,000 hits last night, i know to some that is really nothing but when i started this blog i really didn't think anyone would give a rats ass about my silly records so many thanks to those who have visited on a regular, its cool to know that a few folks are paying attention to this vinyl madness that helps keep me sane... Oh yeah, and if you care i moved my "friends & allies" blog links down to the bottom of the page because it was getting rather large and out of control on the side bar, removed all dead and old links that didn't work and added a brief but accurate? description to each! If ur linked and you don't dig the way i described your blog let me know and if i like you enough i may change it for you! :)

This is a record i've been threatening to post for a while now. I just pulled it out of moth balls and here it is in honor of the devil's music going over 100,000 hits.

Today we get Reverberi and his rendition of the Led Zeppelin classic Stairway to Heaven.

This is a cool piece of jazz, fusion, rock, experimental, and classical all mashed together to make one funky ass instrumental cover version.

I'm very sorry that the anomaly in community traffic of cars and motorcycles and drag racing,and reckless honking by cars and motorcycles is exceeding an unprecedented level!

Man, I wish I had time to put the information out there like our friend Chen. And he sure picked the right spot, a blog that is popular with fans of obscure 45 RPM recordings. We are movers and shakers, one and all.

Really, I'm flattered that you posted a link to my modest blog, but it's not just about ukuleles and buses. Poetry is for Assholes is about ukuleles, buses, lefty anarcho-anarchist white guilt politics, recovery, elderly punk rock reminiscing and poetry. I should probably pare it down to ukuleles and buses.

I'm really glad you turned me on to Skulls and Bacon. Now that's a cool blog.

Congrats on 100,000 hits.

Congrats on 100K hits! Well earned...

Chen obviously recognizes a growing media juggernaut when he/she sees one.

Here's the to the next 900K hits!
