(FAR AWAY FEELING) THE SPELL OF THE YUKON...
ROBERT WILLIAM SERVICE was born in England, educated
in Scotland (at the school my mother attended, but before her time),
lived in Canada and died in France. In between, he wrote some impres-
sive poetry, including the one you're about to listen to, performed by
the hypnotic Mr. VELVET - otherwise known as JIM REEVES.
Unless your computer is linked to a spectacular sound-system,
I'd suggest plugging in your headphones to enjoy this performance
at its finest. There's a chance this reading may relax you to the point
of unconsciousness, so it might be a good idea to sit or lie down while
listening to it - you wouldn't want to fall and injure yourself. Trust
me, I'm only half-joking.
Take it away, Jim.
