All the best quotes can be found on the D-side…

I found this etched on side four of the recently purchased Allen Toussaint Collection double-LP:

Although I probably would’ve preferred five or six additional songs on that side, it was a lot of fun holding the record out on the back deck trying to get the reflection of the clouds and the tree just right.  I had to take about forty shots.  I suspect the guy painting the house next door thought I was a crazy person.

And here’s a picture of that record sitting on my mantel next to the Clientele’s Music For the Age of Miracles.  The Clientele make the best music for autumn–even if your autumn is 84° and humid–and their new one is probably my favorite album of the year.

The Toussaint’s not bad either.
