within a stately building dating to the 1850’s. There are no dining facilities in the hotel but there’s a place that serves great tapas on the way to the club we’re playing at that works just fine. Paraguay is warm and wet so far, and very green.  I hope to visit the botanic gardens nearby to see even more plants of the region. Eddie says the next gig in Brazil has added an extra night to the contract which makes his day. He also said this week’s recording of note is “The Dreaming” by Kate Bush released in 1982 on EMI in America. This collection of tunes is an amazing showcase of vocal prowess amidst lyric and musical power and grace. There is a clarity and “punch” to this album that he believes excels above any of her other recorded works to date, not to slight any of them but this is a true gem. Eddie’s right,every track on this disc is a winner, give it a listen I think you’ll like what you hear.  There’s no show this evening so I think I’ll see if Hank and Harold are up to doing  dinner before I get on with doing my laundry…ahhh show biz!  Seasons Greetings to all of you back home and loyal reader/listeners everywhere. More soon…meanwhile thanks again to twistedpapers.com for the scenic travel images used for this “tour”.
