I just wrote this on the Birdhouse comments to my good friend Mike Luster, and then couldn't live with myself, or go to bed, before putting something up for this sweet singer.


"Mike,

Just heard Jimmy Scott passed away at 88. The stunning singer, interpreter, vocal genius. We're just too busy right now on the road with errands and long travel bouts to get anything correct in place on the Birdhouse for Jimmy Scott the master. I'll make up for this, and him.

all's well, B."

Mike,

Effortless work when someone has already given us so much. There's a proper way to say 'goodbye', I believe.

1000 miles over three days and New England ain't exactly straight roads. Home to get back to other work.

all's well, Bob
