I see nothing wrong with naming favorites, especially if I agree-LOL!

I long for the days when most performances would give me at least a few thrills and chills. And it is not the familiarity after close to 60 years, it is the mediocrity and the absence of magnetism and charisma. Fortunately there are exceptions.

I will not name them, there is far too much naming of favorites on this list. About10 years ago we even has a favorite note thread....mine was “bank”.
