  1. Another good one, Glenn. Thank you!

  2. Thanks for another great collection Glenn. I really like the Palmyra Delran song, so I went to the underground Garage to take a look at the list and place my vote. After some thought (tough choice!) I went with "Soul Salvation of Love" by The Cocktail Slippers. Seems like the girl groups always get my vote, but it was close to a tie with "Homesick Blues" by The Hangmen, from the awesome "East of Western" CD, which may be my favorite CD this year.


  3. thanks, some excellent gems on here, happy holidays
