Along with High Tide, It's A Beautiful Day and East of Eden, Curved Air were one of the first bands after The Velvet Underground and It's A Beautiful Day to feature a violin. Considered (according to AllMusic) "one of the most dramatically accomplished of all the bands lumped into Britain's late-'60s prog explosion", Curved Air released eight studio albums (the first three became the UK Top 20 hits) and had a hit single with "Back Street Luv" (1971) which reached #4 in the UK Singles Chart.

"Oh, that's the name of the song, is it?" Alice said, trying to feel interested.
"No, you don't understand," the Knight said, looking a little vexed. "That's what the name is called. The name really is, 'The Aged Aged Man.'"

"Well, what is the song then?" said Alice, who was by this time completely bewildered.
"I was coming to that," the Knight said. "The song really is "A-sitting on a Gate": and the tune's my own invention."

This journal is my way of collecting a list of various authors who have novels, stories, or other writings available to listen to and download at librivox.org.
A few I've found so far include:
H.G. Wells (aka HG Wells)
Edgar Rice Burroughs (aka E. R. Burroughs)
H.P. Lovecraft / HP Lovecraft / H. P. Lovecraft
Edgar Allan Poe
H. Rider Haggard (best known for King Solomon's Mines)
... and all kinds of fun and exciting things. I'll probably add more later.
You can also volunteer to read any public domain works that haven't been recorded yet.
