New York State of Mind


# It was so easy living day by day
Out of touch with the rhythm and blues
And now I need a little give and take
The New York Times
The Daily News #

Appropriate lyrics for this past week of American newspaper reviews…


# But I’m taking a Greyhound
On the Hudson River Line
I’m in a New York state of mind #

Followed by If And When, and Just The Way You Are


Thanks to my wonderful friend Pieter, glad you’re back online after your computer crash.

It’s happened to almost all of us! So far, Windows Vista seems more reliable.


If And When is from this exquisite 1982 album:


1. All By Myself
2. Solitaire
3. This Masquerade
4. He’s Out Of My Life
5. Don’t Cry Out Loud
6. If And When
7. New York New York (So Good They Named It Twice)
8. Goldfinger
