Tim- you mean from the Buckley 1868 I assume?

Some great titles there...!  I totally envision a stroke/claw medley of Soap Fat Man/Hog Eyed Man.   =8-o

Looking forward to my new CD set coming in the mail....

Yes...Buckley 1868. These all seem really playable. Let me know your experience with this material.

Hoorah! Mine is on the way. I'm a bit late to the conversation, but rather excited for the music.

Wheee!  The postman just brought mine to the kitchen porch,   :)

What's a bulgine ??

Bulgine was a common slang word for Engine, as in locomotive bulgine.

The Soap Fat Man is a sort of washed up version of Converse's more meaty The Charcoal Man.  lol

...and also the same as Mrs. grundy in green Converse.   =8-o

I bought that CD. It's wonderful to listen to.
