    Very cool! I also love a lot of 70s prog rock with a great lady on vocals. Feel free to ask (or offer) recommendations :)

    Here's one I can't enough of right now


    Thanks everyone!

    So true.. But I only went to Chicago to see concerts.... I live in a city, and I can't stand noise pollution. But the rent is so cheap - just wished the houses weren't so close to each other.

    I live in a 'flat' (an apartment you would call it), so I have neighbours above, below and either side of me.

    I'm listening to Chicago right now :)
    "Treasure" might be Bogart's best. Nice father-son director-actor team with the Hustons, too. Every human theme is covered in that simple movie. I've seen it a handful times. I love the scene when Curt has "the thought" but goes back and doesn't let the greed kill his soul.
    Thanks for the welcome...
