A certain mail-order music service sent me an offer: "12 CDs for the price of 1; nothing more to buy ever!" The literature I received in the mail insisted that "THIS OFFER IS ONLY FOR YOU and is not transferable." I accessed their web site to see a bigger selection. You will not believe the offer that greeted me: "12 CDs for the price of 1; nothing more to buy ever!" Obviously they knew it was ONLY ME accessing the site!

Their intro for the album "Gato Barbieri's Finest Hour" said, "One hour of Gato's best soaring, inimitable sax from the 1970s . . ."     Then the review on the same page said, "A ten-track sampling of the career of Latin jazz trumpeter Gato Barbieri . . ."     I have one of his CDs, and I have to admit, that is pretty good sax playing . . . for a jazz trumpeter.
