Battle of the Bands Winner on a Slow Pre-Christmas Blog Day
Since blog traffic is probably going to be slow today and I'm not exactly here, I'm going to keep the action here at a minimum.
Last week's Battle of the Bands match-up pitted Jethro Tull's version of "We Five Kings" against the Brubeck jazz styled "We Three Kings" as played by Peter Shu. Not too surprisingly our votes for the Tull version were over twice as many as the ones for Peter Shu. I say "our" because that's how I voted. Tull is a favorite band of mine. Like Gary who related his concert experience with Jethro Tull, I too saw the band and would rank that concert as among the best I've ever seen.
Peter Shu's version got a lot of nice comments and I do think his version is very good, but pitted against Tull he is edged out with the final tally being Jethro Tull 13 to Peter Shu at 6.
Don't forget The Fifty States of Pray coming tomorrow, Christmas Eve.
And may you all have a Merry Christmas, or if you don't celebrate that holiday, have a wonderful day.
What are you doing for Christmas? What is the best concert you've ever seen?
