|The Side B Continuum||email SteveS|
Sonia here. My friend Steve Schalchlin is given to rather loud responses at times towards side B, and one could get the impression, as I initially did, that his strong feelings of, uh, disapproval applied indiscriminantly to all side B ideations. :) However, this is not the case, as Steve spent an entire afternoon pondering some distinctives between various strains of us side B'ers. :o Much love to you, Steve. And no, I don't think we will have to do the Anthony Hopkins binding-up thing... I think it's okay to let you out in public even for occasions other than singing. Your mad- scientist friend, Sonia Balcer
