Subject: The Gift of Music - tape available

A few weeks ago I made a tape of "The Gift of Music" for a listmember who's
dropped out of sight and doesn't respond to e-mail either. ("Gift" is the
mid-'80s JBC singles collection including classics like "Drink", the
superior non-album version of "Partytime" and versions of "Roadrunner" and
"Sweet Jane".)
Well, I've still got that tape, and I'd like it to go to someone who'll
enjoy it!

The B-side has all of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds' "Henry's Dream", plus
the songs "The Mercy Seat" and "Lucy". It was intended as an introduction
to Nick Cave for someone who'd never heard him. This is a high-quality TDK
MA 110 tape, made with care!

What _I_ would like is any JBC I don't have. This includes "The Gift of
Music Part 2" (also called "Big Questions"), and/or whatever records the
songs "Olof Palme" and "Rebecca Wants Her Bike Back" came off of. I'm also
missing "Live in Hamburg." I think I've got all the rest (thanks largely to
the generosity of listmembers I've already traded with).

Naturally, if you think you have any other JBC music I might not have
heard, let me know. If nobody has anything I'm missing, I'll think of some
other way to decide who gets the tape.

P.S. I don't have the CD of "The Gift of Music" from which this tape was
made - I only have my own taped copy in addition to this one, and no
tape-to-tape capability. So this tape is the only one I have to give away.
