    You should, several great songs on there, and just hearing Clapton and Duane Allman play off each other is great. Like on this one:

    I would guess that in one airport or set break or another you have heard the whole album by now-- just in pieces and not knowing what they were pieces of. I'm particularly fond of the version of "Key To the Highway."

    Do you have a working source for that whole quote? I've seen parts of it ("throw the wogs out", "keep Britain white") before, but never before seen all of that.

    Thank you. I had been in love with this Bobby Whitlock song once upon a time, but haven't heard it in a long time and had forgotten about it. Very simple and very pretty.

    Former Fed Chair Paul Volcker passes at 92

    https://www.npr.org/2019/12/09/659908267/former-fed-chairman-paul-volcker-dies-at-92


    Former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker, the closest thing to a rock star economist this country has seen, died Monday at 92, NPR has confirmed. He reportedly had prostate cancer.

    It has been more than three decades since Volcker stepped down from the Fed. And it's a safe bet that many younger Americans do not even know his name.

    Here's how Robert Kavesh, a professor at New York University, remembers his lifelong friend: "The economic hero of post-World War II America I would have to say was Paul Volcker. And that's saying something."

    Indeed. Volcker's leadership moment came shortly after President Jimmy Carter appointed him chairman of the Fed in 1979. The U.S. economy was in crisis. Stagflation — a highly unusual combination of both high inflation and rising unemployment — gripped the country.

    To address spiraling inflation, Volcker dramatically constricted the nation's money supply and let interest rates rise. The interest rates on a conventional mortgage soared to more than 18%.

    Within two years, his plan worked. But it's hard to overstate how much the public reviled Volcker at the time. Unemployment increased, and Volcker was blamed for plunging the country into recession — deliberately. Many say he ruined Carter's reelection chances. Ads pointed out Volcker's middle name was Adolph, insinuating similarities to Adolf Hitler.
