If only I'd picked 'What Good Am I'... Apart from that, full marks. I feel the pool is getting easier...

Thanks babf - just listening now whilst having a glass of red wine at the train station.. :) Enjoying she belongs to me. Voice seems smoother and softer than the end of last tour, enjoyed the harmonic and the little stop during it. Just on beyond here lies nothing.. this sounds really good to me, I like the piano playing. What good am I .. .... this is great, like this singing. From what I remember this sounds better than end of last tour. Yes, this what good am I Is brilliant. This singing is better than on the album, hang on I might be getting carried away but bobs voice seems to be going back in time. Blind Willie, his voice again, harmonica, everything, sounds great, some of them died in battle, but some of them survived as well.. train to catch,but so far.. Bob's got me smiling again.

I like the new scoring, if only because I did terribly last 2 times and I scored 160 this first night! W00t! I'm on the team Anthemis Nobilis. 8) The pool is fun!

I actually picked 'tears of rage' for 7 points over 'Waiting For You' for 10 - I actually thought he would move on. :shock:
Actually i like some of the lines, i think i was biased, actually.

Actually, picks just went up yesterday so you're not late. You have a couple of weeks to join someone's team.

Go over to the Pool and sign up and ask in the discussions area if you can join a team. I'm sure there are people looking to fill in vacancies.

Good luck.

Better... I've got 10 point each for Huck's & Summer Days. Roll on John is my 20 point wild card.

I greatly needed the Huck's Tune point injection, but it wasn't enough to bring me up very much in the pool :lol:
I'm pulling for St. Augustine to make an appearance :D

I picked Desolation Row as my 20 point Joker pick so that's exciting but I'm tied for 231st place overall. It was fun tying for first place in the last pool but if I'm not mistaken there were 88 of us who shared the honor. My previous high score for an entire tour was 13th place back in the summer of 2011.

I got 34 points and reached a rank at number 29.
I was sure I'd be among the top 10 since I had both Desolation Row and Huck's Tune,
but since Bob left off so many Tempest songs I didn't quite get that high.


Funny thing though, the day before Thessaloniki I made a shout to the team reading; "I feel a change comin' on!" :P

I changed my joker pick to Man In the Long Black Coat at the last minute due to a soundcheck tip from JP. If I hadn't, I'd have 20 more points. Just wait 'til I see her...I'll ask - nay, demand - my 20 points immediately. Or there'll be troUble. With a capital U.
