Feb 28 2003. Unjustly Forgotten Album Month - Elephant's Memory: Take It to the Streets (1971).

Feb 28 2003 - Eh, I may have to slow the reviewing pace down even more because I am now a member of the 9-5 crowd and consequently spend my day in front of a computer.  This dramatically reduces my desire to spend my free time in front of a computer working on music reviews (it takes a while to write each one, you know).  We'll see what happens.

Feb 03 2003 - I hereby declare February to be: Unjustly Forgotten Album Month.  What does this mean?  It means that in addition to my usual pace of sloppily written, hastily cranked out reviews you'll get an additional, er ...you'll get at least one review per week (hopefully) of a artist that I believe is really good, but never mentioned.  Hopefully we can make these albums sort of second-class "Forgotten Classics" as opposed to the first-class ones (W&A's unofficial holy trinity of the Zombies' Odyssey and Oracle, Love's Forever Changes, and Spirit's Twelve Dreams of Dr. Sardonicus).  How much will this cost you?  Nothing!  That's right, nothing - I'll throw it in for free along with my usual reviews.  All you have to do is show up here to read about some band you've never heard of, and probably wouldn't want to hear.
