I love Karen’s voice as much on the ‘Ticket to Ride’, CAL State Uni, 60s solo contract and Lounge Room /Bathroom days as much as on the later recordings. I think she already did have that sound that was magical and magnetic way back then - that rich, warm, deep register and also that glorious higher register. Just as an aside, I think she was recorded slightly differently in the early days. She sounds great though at 17, 18, 19 and onwards.

Thanks for the interviews, Mike. Doing well.

@Mike Cidoni Lennox, there’s a sweetness and a genuine sense of awe in your approach. It’s very winsome. (And I agree with the others. You look great.)
Incredibly kind words greatly appreciated.

Mark: You and this extraordinary Forum family have supported @ChrisMay and myself from the start. Surely, you all will be remembered at Thanksgiving table this afternoon. Sincerest gratitude.
