TVD Gives Thanks to RMS

....aaaannnd we're back from the long Thanksgiving holiday . . . but unfortunately someone isn't among us today.

Back when was TVD was a mere pup (ahem, last July) there was one guy out there who was more than generous with advice, pointers and sincere encouragement -- the Retro Music Snob. In fact, trading notes with him was my first realization that the online experience of blogging (and blathering) was actually a community of very like-minded folks who weren't merely indulging whims but trading in the very tangible appreciation for all forms of music, art, expression. Soon followed Mick, then Davy, and plenty more voices to underscore this, but Gary was the first, the most tireless, and the most inspiring from Day One.

So, hats off to you RMS . . . you'll be missed.

Some faves from RMS:

The Bluebells - I'm Falling (Mp3)
The Jags - Back of My Hand (Mp3)
The Plimsouls - Oldest Story in the World (Mp3)
The Records - Hearts in Her Eyes (Mp3)
Tommy Keene - Places that are Gone (Mp3)
