[i] We are unclear as to when we will begin promoting the music of the legendary British rock band, YES, but when we do, you will be the first to know. This offering will go as long as- if not longer- than the Beatles and their individual members. Please stay tuned.
[ii] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018. Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands. All are fabulous.
[iii] We began promoting the music of the greatest British blues rock band, the Climax Blues Band, beginning on Monday, 16-September-2019 through Sunday, 27-October-2019. This included the solo efforts of Pete Haycock and Colin Cooper. We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.
[iv] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018. Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.
[v] Not sure when we will present the music of this famed Canadian American rock band but when we do, you will be the first to know. The Band ranks among the all-time greatest rock bands of the 1960s and 1970s. You won’t want to miss them.
[vi] NO economic plan put forth by President Barack Obama over his eight years in office ever generated the promised results. It was not until Donald Trump became president that the economy began going like gangbusters. The proof of how inept the Obama administration was is in the way in 2020 Obama tries to take credit for the Trump economy, claiming that it was ‘his.’ No, Mr. Obama, you did NOTHING to create the economy we are now enjoying.
