Welcome back! It’s time (actually overdue) to announce results for the July 1st BOTB post.
Sorry I’m late! (See below)
BATTLE OF THE BANDS (BOTB), hosted by StMcC Presents Battle of the Bands. is where you listen to different recordings of the same song and vote for the one you like best. Two “Battles” per month, on the 1st and 15th. Votes will be tallied and posted the following week.
♫ This contest featured bands from opposite sides of the Atlantic ♫
Not the greatest turnout for this one, but that’s no surprise on a summer holiday weekend. Thanks to everyone who made the time. I’m sorry I got bogged down in the morass of web redesign (see below) and didn’t get a chance to make the rounds. For awhile, it looked like the Animals would devour the White Stripes, but fortunately, that didn’t happen. Still, it was a decisive victory. We had one “write-in” vote for Louis Armstrong by author Karen Lynn. A rebel; I like that! 🙂 Here’s the voting breakdown. (Looks naked without the pie chart. I’ll try and think of some other way to jazz it up for the future.)
ERIC BURDON & THE ANIMALS:
Birgit, Cathy, Diedre, Jeffrey, John, Mary, Michele, Mike, Myke, Pat, Shady
THE WHITE STRIPES:
Arlee, C.W. Martin, Cherdo, Dixie, Guilie, Stephen
Once again, my vote is moot, but I’m choosing Eric. What a voice! I’ve been a fan of his even longer than my other fave, John Kay. Eric feels the blues right down to his toes and can still belt them out at age 73!
and the winner is:
ERIC BURDON & THE ANIMALS

Here’s some concert footage I took of Eric Burdon in November 2014.
Didn’t I tell you he could still belt out the blues? 🙂

I’m not sure whether or not I’ll be there. It’s been a rough few days and I’m suffering a severe case of internet fatigue. My website had a meltdown and in a fit of pique, I decided to redesign it from scratch. It was going along fairly well, especially considering I have no formal training in web design and backend coding, (thank you, Google!) until I hit the proverbial wall. Certain things wouldn’t function the way I needed them to, despite trying various methods. Exhausted and bleary-eyed, I shelved the whole thing and fixed the old design. It’s obsolete and needs to be modernized, but I’ll try again later in the year. Apologies to those whose comments and posts I have missed! Hubby and I are leaving on a three-day road trip in the morning and the blog will be on vacation for awhile, too. Thanks for your understanding.
COMING UP LATER THIS MONTH:

Was this the outcome you expected or were you surprised?
Looking forward to your comments!
Until next time.
