In the envelope we had to put a $50 money order and a self-addressed/stamped envelope. They would draw 1,000 envelopes from the mail, insert 2 tickets in the self-addressed envelope and send them out. The losing envelopes were opened and the money orders sent back to us.

As "luck" would have it I received my income tax refund of just over $500 at that time. I went to the PO and bought ten $50 money orders. Months go by and one day an envelope arrives in the mail and my first thought was, "That looks like my hand writing." I open it and yahoo I had my 2 tickets. As time rolled on 2 more winning envelope showed I had 6 tickets I gave 5 of the tickets to some friends and we had a great time which began with a full Thanksgiving dinner which was served buffet style. Three tables of food was traditional fare and 1 table for vegetarians. Picture below of dinner.

<--- My avatar photo was taken around that time.
Sounds like a bit of luck there, but also a keen strategy. Also, sounds like a really great time.

Your comment on strategy just knocked loose another thing about this... I did not mail them all at the same time because I didn't want them all in one mailbag, not knowing how it was going to work on their end. I'll never know, and in any case, I was indeed fortunate in the end.

Also sitting here in the atmosphere of COVID-19 I began to wonder, since there were fewer than 5,000 people at the concert, just how many of us are still alive

I don't know if I said that exactly. My personal favorites from New Bermuda are Brought to the Water, Come Back, and Gifts for the Earth.

Great spin! Big fan of this album in particular but all of the material from Jesu (aka Justin Broadrick) is pretty solid.

When you stop watching what they want you to watch you stop thinking what they want you to think.. Then you see a world that is nothing like they tell you it is.

Pink Floyd - The Dark Side of the Moon, 44.1/16 FLAC. De-emphasized Black Triangle, still the best two channel version of this album I've heard. I do believe Alan Parson's Quad Mix is the best presentation of this music, but this one is quite three-dimensional, dynamic and laid back, and revealing.
