2 songs, no picture

Just a short list this week. There's Mississippi John Hurt's Coffee Blues, which seems to be some sort of version on Lovin Spoonful, and is beautiful and touching despite it's maxwell-house-pushing qualities. And then we have Fela ITT. ITT stands for International Telephone & Telegraph, but Fela uses it instead to mean International Thief Thief, and uses it as an example of all foreign companies that came in and stole from Africa. Sorry, should be able to explain this better, but I'm VERY TIRED.
Coffee Blues

So Steen, could you please explain to me how you get the tracks from Boxstr on to the Yahoo player?

TFD, sorry not to get back to you sooner. THere's one line of HTML that you copy and paste into your post to get the player. But I think (Is this true, Blimpy) that as long as one person has done so on the visible segment of the spill, no one else has to. If you see a little grey box in the lower left hand corner it means it's already there.

Have you seen this? It's about Richard & Linda Thompson's son.
