36 - shoeless, thud thoughts, pinkless, choice songs, jazz, I spy again!

Thanks for a brilliant concert at The Apollo in Manchester, but can you please tell me why you were not wearing any shoes. Well the photo I have from the paper shows you without any shoes. I was too far back to notice. Only concert I have been to where we were standing from the beginning. I had the best Valentines night I have had for ages.
It feels good to be without shoes, and they give me a carpet to run around
1. If memory serves me right, I saw an album by Pauline Gillan back in the 80s, with a sticker saying it was your sister. Do you know if there is any chance to get my hands on a copy? If not - what did it sound like?
2. Great idea to add female singers and a brass section as can be heard on the soundboard series! BTW: We're all getting older and while it is a lot of fun to dance to the rock'n'roll at a DP-show I think a lot of us could use something to play at home to the missus as well, you know the candle and red wine moments. Everybody I played stuff like ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE or THE AVIATOR to loved it. DREAMCATCHER was another step in that direction. I just want to encourage you to record something different with DP. The good sale figures of the 99 concerto cd seem to say the same.
3. Talking of DREAMCATCHER I think the cover-artwork was not fully up to standard. My wife happens to be a graphic-designer, she worked as an art director for Sony and did cover artworks for Santana, Bobby McFerrin and many others and would be honoured to offer some ideas for your next album. No this is NOT us trying to make money, just contact us if you are interested.
4. You once wanted to know about German toilets and why they have that "platform". I feel I have to try my very best to clear this up in the name of love and understanding between our people and in deep respect for your scientific curiosity. In fact you don't find that very often anymore, you seem to attend places that have not been renovated for quite a while...But what was it for? My guess is: If you lose some weight there the "platform" prevents the splash that otherwise would reach your privates. Get the point? My pleasure!
5. And please keep the good work coming.
All the best
1) I wouldn't know where to get a copy of Pauline's album, I guess it is very rare. It sounds good and is what you would expect from a developing artist, full of promise.
2) As I have mentioned before, there's not a lot of thought goes into the style of what we write, it's all governed by circumstances. Also everybody has a different idea of how they see DP, or any artist really, so we'll just try and make things better on the day.
3) I take your point, it's been mentioned before, but, again, it's hard to please everybody and I don't try. The American cover of Dreamcatcher was more conventional, but the English version was more compatible with the content; and there's another story, the content got up a lot of noses, for many reasons; Rock 'n' Roll preconceptions, live musicians etc. Never mind it was special to me.
4) I do know, Max, that the old style shelf is not found much in a modern Germany. This story ('Thud'..in the archive anecdotage, #14) originated in 1965 and I am assured that it was for the purpose of examination prior to flushing. Much stock being put into that sort of thing in those days. I wonder how many other theories exist regarding this important topic.
Thank you so much for reading the anecdotage and also for your thoughtful

Just read your succint reply to the fellow who doesn't think too much of you from the Far East. And it brought a question to my mind- what are the reasons that you sing only "your" songs? I suspect that part of the answer is that songs are written for a particular voice?

Once again I come to point a mistake in the transcription of a
Wordography lyric. Funky Claude was running in and out "pulling", not
"dragging" kids out of the ground...
