Re:My review of Trouble No More 1 Month, 3 Weeks ago  
That's terrific Peter! Great to see some in-depth commentary and your views are as insightful as ever.

I'm still working my way through and I must say am a little confused at some of the song choices. If it really is all about performance then I have a few songs on boots which I'd place above the picks here. But that's just a minor issue. There really is a bunch of eye-opening stuff here, unknown slower versions, superb band playing, great arrangements...

Oddly, it doesn't seem like anyone on the board here is very interested, which I find a little strange, unless everyone has taken even longer than me to forgive Bob for converting to a fundamentalist Christian philosophy.

Like you, Derek, I'm still working my way through the read. PSB's account of the arrival of Slow Train Coming echoes my own experience when the album appeared in record stores, and as for the following two LPs of the "religious trilogy," I had my favorites. "Every Grain of Sand" and "In The Summertime," from Shot of Love, come to mind. Unless one got overly hung up on the lyrics, Slow Train Coming was a great listen, IMO.

I'm not so sure that forgiving Bob has all that much to do with commentary. Just look at this link from Pagel's site of the 2017 year and note how many shows went w/o a review, or where there was only a single review:

https://tinyurl.com/ya2r8zzk

Times have changed. Whereas a couple of dozen "Bobcats" would gather at a nearby bar or tavern a dozen years ago, only a half-dozen showed up at one show I'm aware of. Why? Any number of reasons, I suppose, but one younger generation had to get home to pay a baby sitter and get kids ready for school the next day. An older generation is losing souls to the Grim Reaper, age-related health issues and so on.

I think the fact that social media exists in formats it didn't a dozen years ago, say, has further fragmented communities of all kinds. And some - Watchtower, for example - no longer exist. Incidentally, if you or Peter can comment on the reasons for its demise, I'd be grateful for any comments.

Thanks, Peter. Always insightful writing.

Thanks Derek and Warren. I don't think there was any great reason for Watchtower's demise except that only a few people were using the forum, and there were problems with the site going on and off line for a year, and Jonathan the owner probably simply gave up and didn't renew it when it came up.
