    Hey Hey!

    This is music to my ears. Too bad I won't be able to
    make it to the gig in Chicago next Friday, but I'm
    very glad to hear that Louis has re-joined the fold
    and will be tearing it up again. I know Louis got a
    lot of hype for being Mr. Thunder Thumbs, but he laid
    down some serious straight basslines on all his
    sessions. He was/is a monster, and I hope I get the
    chance to see them live one day. BTW, I know that
    Strawberry Letter 23 got the most hype, but the album
    it came from(Right On Time) is one of my top 10
    favorite CDs of all time. Just an incredible vibe and
    groove they had there. Long live the funk.

    Take Care-----Paul Berger---
