Subject: RE: Entertaining dementia patients
PS - Getting back to specific recordings; if in my nostalgic dotage I want to bask in The Revealing Science of God or Jawbone and the Air Rifle or Dead Souls or Prince Rupert Awakes or For Richard or Wurdah Itah I'd rather have the original recording than some well-meaning volunteer with a guitar giving it their best shot. Same goes for Ivor Cutler and Jim Eldon songs, or Folk Songs as a whole - just upload my field recorded archives onto an iPod and press repeat play & I'll be as happy as Larry. Actually, I might as well start doing this now so I may politely decline the offer of having what remains of my precious brain cells 30 years hence beaten into submission by American fecking Pie. There are, it seems, some things a good deal worse than death, or the firely torments of Hell - at least there you be guaranteed to get some good music...
