What a cool read :) Thanks. I have to say, though, that I completely disagree about his assessment of Patty's two live discs. I don't think A Kiss in Time does a good job at all of capturing Patty's magic live, while the Artists' Den CD for me is pure magic.

Whoops, I hadn't read the very end. I can see why he'd want to balance his article a little, but jeesh, quoting someone who suggested drug use maybe wasn't the nicest way to do that.

Yes, that was a wierd ending to the piece. It was as if he was embarassed that he had been too partisan and had to end it on a really negative note.
