Subj: Re: [kl] Martin Powell's CD

Thank you to those of who you responded and clarified my original statement. You were correct in asserting that I was only insisting that the list was not an adequate reflection of universal acclaim. NOTHING more.

As I have already explained to some members off of the list, I have heard the CD. But as someone else said, this has nothing to do with what I said, because I am IN NO WAY criticizing it. I have no desire to get into a debate over Martin's playing or the quality of his CD.

My main beef is with people who get excited and make statements for others. If anyone feels I was being too picky in choosing to make my initial post, that is their prerogative. But don't tell me that I was up to more than just poiting that out.

I feel slightly vindicated in my previous anonymity by Ken's response about the Opera list and the "names" that are on this list. Somehow, I knew somebody would make more of what I said than what was actually there. I have no desire to put myself at risk politically just because a few people can't read and interpret what I actually said.

Finally, I would like to apologize to Martin. However it got blown out of proportion, it seemed for a while as if I was questioning your ability or your CD. Believe me, that was not at all what I wanted!

Thanks for reading,
