Shot out of a Canon

In 1979, the Musical Heritage Society (remember them?), then at 1991 Broadway in New York, issued an LP (MHS 1060, licensed from the French label Erato) with not one, but three, pieces by Johann Pachelbel (1653-1706).

I bring this up because while I have to agree with Rob Pavonian’s premise here, I’m not quite sure the “one-hit wonder” tag is appropriate, since there are plenty of recordings of Pachelbel’s Musicalische Ergötzung out there.

Then again, I preferred Zager and Evans’ “Mr. Turnkey” to “In the Year 2525,” so have your grains of salt handy.

    You might want to save some of those grains of salt for the sidewalk.

    Meanwhile down here in the land of kudzu and fire ants, the good stuff is passing us by and the temperature drop today was supposed to give us has yet to materialize.
