A big hello from as far north as you can fly and stay within Los Angeles city limits -- where Elliot's "E.T." house is nestled up against 5,074-foot (1,547 m) Mt. Lukens, the highest point in Los Angeles.
A friend loaned me TGAOW 'round about '85 or so and I got hooked and immediately bought TGAOW and TFE. As years passed, I lost touch and forgot about Mr. Robertson. My musical tastes drifted lazily about since I'll listen to practically any genre (I am a huge Cardiacs freak, however).
I was recently surfing Youtube and the video for "Oceanea" smacked me right in the jaw and my knees went wobbly for a moment. I purchased AMOTFC and I'm loving every minute of it. Now, I'm back aboard!
