"Wyrk?" Is that the Middle English spelling?
> How many folks are able to listen at work?
I can't listen to music at work. I'm in an office. I mean, I *could*
listen to music at work if I wanted to. But I find it too difficult.
First, I'd have to keep it *real* low. Second, anytime I left my desk
area I wouldn't be able to hear it. It's really not worth it because
I can't *enjoy* the music & give it my full attention.
I hardly ever put on music just for some background noise. And, while in
school, I could never do homework with music on either. I couldn't con-
I seem to pick my own personal time for listening to music. Mainly in
my car, as of late. Oftentimes, I get home from work & just enjoy the
silence rather than throwing on a CD right away. Many nights (and days)
I don't any play music at all. (These ears hear a whole lot of music,
& sometimes they hear a bit too much.)

And you can crank it, too, I'll bet! At least somewhat. And it probably
makes the time go a lot faster, as well. Consider yourself lucky.

Isn't it great having an audience to listen to your favorite music! I
love it when I have people in my car. They can't go anywhere & they
*must* listen to what I play! Mwoo ha ha ha ha!

Ha! How does "Doctor Says" from our first CD go over?! ;-o

Tell me about it. I get cracked on by my friends every time I play
"Hiding Out" from WHITE CITY.

Excellent point. Many bands keep the same basic sound throughout their
careers (think AC/DC). The Who are so much deeper than most. More
complex. More layered. More varied.
> How can this album (SELL OUT) exist and others not even know about it?
The obvious genius that we see so clearly is missed on a lot of people.
Once, I gave a girl - a Beatles fan - a copy of SELL OUT & she hated it.
She was an idiot anyways. What can I say? I tried.

What more can we ask for from The Who besides an honest attempt at making
passionate, personal music? Do it, & let the pieces fall where they may.
