> New topic for discussion: "The Jazz Butcher: Crap or What?"

I think the answer to that is: What? As in - definitely not
Crap. :) I just (finally!) picked up Waiting For The Love Bus
(it was a US import, so I don't think it's a domestic release in
Canada still). Great album! I particularly like the album
versions of Sweetwater, Ghosts, and Penguins. (I'm comparing
S and G with the versions from the Mean Fiddler gig a year ago.)

Other things to consider about JB lack of popularity (depressing
subject, I know) - rather off-the-wall humour that may not appeal
to everyone, intelligent lyrics which do not cater to the lowest
common denominator. What do you think?
