Or fours or fives or sixes, depending on what they are, but for the purpose of this column I limit it to threes.  After all, there are three strikes in baseball, three downs in Canadian football (which is a much better and more exciting game than American football as far as I am concerned), and three goals to a hat trick.  Tony Orlando and Dawn knocked three times, the third time’s the charm, and there were three blind mice.

The impetus, for what has now become a series, was my discovery of an old vinyl record by Maggie Bell. I came across it going through one of my many purge cycles. Suicide Sal, released in 1975, was my introduction to the blues….I just didn’t know it then. I wasn’t in the habit of labeling types of music in my younger years, I just knew what I liked. Greg Simpson, who happened to be managing the now defunct Records on Wheels in London, Ontario, recommended the album, thinking I might like it. I loved it and still do. Thank you Greg!
