a little disappointment.

I had listened several times to Dandy Livingstone's "A Message to you, Rudy" on YouTube and thought, "I'd like a CD of his stuff."

Apparently, such a thing does not exist. (I suppose there are old copies of the record out there, but I don't own a turntable and don't like paying hipster-inflated prices for such a thing).

But Amazon told me it did. So in excitement, I ordered it. It came today. It's not. It's from a band called "Livingston" and is an "unsigned" Christian rock band from Georgia. (I can't even find samples of their music online). There's a British Livingston band, that's sort of saddish electro-folkish music (hard for me to describe it from what little I can find on YouTube). This is different.

I'm....not that into Christian rock. I got in touch with Amazon, wanting to return it for a refund. They just refunded me and told me not to return it. So - if you're into both Christian rock and pigs in pokes (I have no idea of the style of music, I have not opened the CD) - e-mail me you address and I'll drop it in the mail to you.

but yeah, a little disappointment.

This is what I wanted:

("Rudy" is Jamaican slang of the era for "Rude Boy" - sort of, but not quite, the Islands version of a Teddy Boy - a teenager who dressed sharply but was involved in petty crime. So the "message to Rudy" is "clean up your life, grow up a little, stop being a jerk." I may have reasons for identifying with this song right now.)

I'm always open to a pig in the poke.
