    How appropriate to post this single Paul right before your own Holiday Vacation!! I’m so excited because you always get the perfect record to fit in with the times and this is a re-rip of one of your “lost” classics on BTG!! Just heard this song a few weekends ago on an 80’s satellite radio station at a Memorial Day BBQ and remembered how much I liked this song. Love the barking dog too!! So super to get this in expert quality DjPaulT. It’s going to be a nice way to end out the week.

    Hey, hope you enjoy your vacation and have a blast!! We will all be waiting for you when you get back!!!!!

    Hugs!

    !2” vinyl? Kidding right? With 2m11s they could at least put the rest of the soundtrack as a bonus on that one.
