There were many good songs, I would say 20 our of 32 were fine but while it is good enough for a good evening, it isn’t enough for a great evening., and I just think, right person, wrong song.

Good Morning Good Morning – Mickey Dolenz – Off the Remember album if you think a flute has no place on the Lennon classic, think again ; Dolenz is in superb voice and it captures some of the timed weirdness of Lennon’s take on the straight life – B+
