I visited my local bald eagle nest today, and got to see the young'uns. Look close and you can see two juveniles on a branch to the right above the nest. I don't know where the other parent was at the time, but I assume she was off getting some take-out or something. I don't know if these guys are flying yet, but I sort of doubt it. Shouldn't be long, though.

A Demilio I Don't Have

Sometimes you have to look closely to see what's right there in front of you. I spotted this LP recently and didn't think much of it until I took a closer look. And sure enough, right there in plain sight was another Demilio cover, one that I didn't have! Unfortunately, I still don't have it, but at least I have a small picture of it. The record you're looking at above is Stanley Black And His Orchestra-Red Velvet (London LL 1592), but the Demilio cover I've blown up for you below is on Stanley Black And His Orchestra-Festival In Costa Rica (I can't read the catalog number, sorry). If you can't wait for me to find this fifty year old album, you can visit this website that has a picture of the UK version of the LP on Decca. He's also got two or three others that I've never seen, so I have my work cut out for me.

(I've got still more minor Demilio treats for you this week, so come back soon!)

One More Demilio

It's been quite a while since I've brought you a new Demilio cover, one, because they're pretty hard to find, and two, because I've been too lazy to scan it in and piece it together in Photoshop. But I've got all my ducks in a row and I'm proud to present you with this new Demilio cover, my eighth, I believe. This is from Robert Farnon And His Orchestra-Flirtation Walk (London LL 1053). Last time I shared one of these covers with you, I posted all of the ones I have to date, so I'm going to point you to that other post rather than list them all again. And just for the record, I've got some more Demilio-related stuff I intend to share this week, so stay tuned.

More March

I know it's still winter for most of you folks, so here's a little picture to remind you that summer is coming. I don't remember what beach I shot this at, or when, but it's a nice picture, don't ya think?
