yep i understand...i think as artists there is a level of trust in which we have to instinctively  depend upon within each other in order to grow.... and to listen to 'successful artists' like NC in these days, that feeling has become increasingly more difficult and rare...thats why i thought this was a something quite important in terms of an existance of some/any artistic zeitgeist...which should always exist no matter how underground....here on this forum there are levels within artists here i can genuinely respond to and feel supported by and that is so important. i am so glad of your responses Ahavati for me its valuable

I thoroughly enjoyed it, nomoth. I am happy you posted the reminder. It's something I had on my to-do list; but, had so much on my friggin plate.  It was so nice to just be able to kick back and listen.  It was definitely a blessing. I feel like I'm coming down from a great 60's high that the likes of this generation ( and probably the last two ) will never know except maybe through music such as this.

The most noteworthy thing about listening to something live with 15,000 others is the combined energy - it's amazing.

Any thoughts on what the word 'ghosteen' means?

poet Anonymous

from what i read about the album.... '-teen' on the end of the word means little. so it would be 'lttle ghost' which would refer to his son who passed and of whom a lot of the songs are about.

also thanks for thanks AB.

Nick is the best Artist that has come out of Australia...and me LOL. He was influenced by Leonard Cohen as a young poet/songwriter...sadly he wasn't fully appreciated down here until moved overseas.
Cheers...Harry
