To all the Ladies and Gentlemen who made this all so probable...

Without my friends,

I've got chaos.
I'd be off in a beam of light.
Without my friends,
I'd be swept off high by the wind.

- Alex Chilton, "Thank You Friends," 1974.

Happy Thanksgiving from all your friends at the Boogie Woogie Flu.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

Thank you so much for the writing, the photographs, and the music. Your blog is one of my favorite stops online.

And I have to do this anonymously because I forgot my Google password all of a sudden LOL.

Either I'd completely forgotten it, or that Remains song isn't on the Remains LP I bought 30 years ago which I probably played 100 times back in the days when I had fewer than 100 records. Nice.
