Hey Ax, what if I decided that I wanted to do my DI list as a Vinyl Double album, do you have any idea what the time limits on each side would be?

Is there one that carries a huge scary sword? He's at all of our parades, and he used to terrify me as a small child

Not being somebody terribly familiar with vinyl, I'm not sure how much you can cram onto one side, I'm afraid.

Trains are so much more enjoyable than a bus. I love just the whole experience of it, rocking along in your own little world, marvelling at the world outside. The sounds at night when we've stopped for some unknown reason.

Someday, I'd like to go right across Canada on a train. That's one of my dreams.

All I know is that everyone here only knows that one song of his... Well, there are probably some hardcore country fans that follow him more closely, but in terms of general awareness... that was it.

Ah, I just know someone did it with their list last time round, and I thought perhaps you might've recalled no worries, I'll keep looking, or just keep it to two discs

Apparently in country circles the rest of his music back in the 80s was pretty well known. They don't understand why he's referred to as a one-hit wonder.

Yeah, I honestly can't stand riding on buses. They're always so uncomfortable. And you can't walk around or anything. Forget having a dining car on lengthy trips!

Heh, I'd love to do the trip across Canada too. The section through the Rockies looks particularly astonishing.

I don't think you can fit much onto vinyl... I thought it was about 20 mins a side?

The Shriners were on little motorbikes and cars as well.

It was actually a pretty good parade this year, and the BBQ chicken supper was delicious. Had a great day. Perfect weather, the humidity went away.. lovely.

While I recognise his name, I can't even think of what "that one song of his" is ...

Probably a good thing though.

I guess that's what happens when someone who's successful in one genre has one break-out song that gets mass appeal or something like that...

Judging by albums that I know were released as just single vinyl albums, you must be able to include closer to 25 minutes.
