And so it goes...


My good friends it is with a heavy heart and tired mind that I write this. The deletions due to trolls are continuing and now I have received several threatening legal notices (for unreleased material) that are forcing me to close up shop. How do the other guys get away with sharing for longer than this? All of your kind words and support are greatly appreciated on this end. It's a tough one-man operation to keep up for long so I am glad that I made it this far. But I have a family and cannot fight the system on this if they decide to hound me and so I lay down my sword , before I am hoist upon it. In the future (when all is well...) I will be looking toward a more community-oriented organization (much like one's I have mentioned previously) and should something new turn up I hope you all will keep your blogger accounts open so I can notify you. Again, many thanks for the good words and sharing. So, please get them all while you can and enjoy. For me, it's time to devote more time to study and scholarship. Like I once said , "The greatest sevice we can do for the deity is help our fellow man."

Sorry to hear this has come to end. Take care of your family, that is more important. Hopefully we'll see you in the future.

Somehow you must have upset "The Man". A great shame. And we never did get the second part of that live Bowie CD at the Royal Festival Hall. B011Ocks!!
All the best to you.

you didn't just provide great music, you provided awesome versions of great music. I found some of the best unreleased albums from your site. I hope you resurface sometime soon. If not, hope to see around sites like atease. Thanks again for everything.

explodingboy said...

Cheers to you and yours. Alas, it is not good-bye but more like I'll see you down the road..your efforts are appreciated and welcomed. Until we meet again Daddy.........

Whattup, Yo.

HBD, again. Old fart.

Just wanted to drop a line and say thanks for your generosity and sharing your knowledge and love of music. Fortunately for me, I have 'ala carte' comp service but for these other people, your blog will be sadly missed.

Don't worry, someday soon, some 12 year old Kazakhstanian will figure out a way to circumvent this again.

Damn the Man.

See you soon Homie.

Damn, only the good die young.

What the hell is wrong with spreading unreleased stuff. Rec. companies should wake up to the demand of the people. As if they are ever going to release all this obscure stuff..

I loved your site and comments and esp. great varied taste in music.

You always gave so much and I almost always just took, but know it was greatly appreciated!!

Live fast, die young, leave a beautiful corps.

See you around Daddy...

I will truly miss your blog - not only for the great music but for the witty commentary. I hope you will grace us all with your efforts again someday, but for now, thanks a million and don't let the bastards wear you down.

The Ape Will Live In Our Hearts And Minds. You are a very talented individual, so no doubt you future lies in other endeavors - hope to see your children's book on a Barnes & Noble shelf someday.

Music is a common treasury for all the world share. When asked how he felt about all the online sharing of his songs, Bob Dylan replied, "Why not? They ain't worth nothin' anyway."

Thanks for the memories,
Adam

P.S. - livejournal is a nice one for private music sharing. Keep us posted.

Respect, Big Daddy. Bad guys suck, or in the words of Tom Scharpling "Bad Guys Die". I suppose that soon we will not be able to use "patented" words or ideas as well. Live free.

How sad... I just discovered this now that all the music is gone. Perhaps you could do it again, but set it up so only registered people can see the downloads? And the way they register would be to upload a good album and send you the link to share with everyone! Well, it's just an idea... :)

I think the ones in quotes are Leo talking, not song titles. If that's so, this set list looks just like yours (except for track 1--Eggtooth) I found another site that says Leo played on 9/27/96, but so far haven't found anything about a show on 9/26/96. But, of course, there could have been. If it's the same show, but the date is off, it looks like the next to last track on disc 1 is called Room Service. Anyway, I hope this helps.

Thanks a lot for posting this Leo show. He's great!
