J ust when I think I spend too much time on these things, I stumble across a page like www.jefflynnesongs.com/evilwoman. This is what my web site looks like when I dream. For example, I usually fudge the release dates by a week or more and Iím lucky to know the German release has a different B side. What Robert Porter has assembled here is a monument of metamusical data around a single luminous star, Jeff Lynne. Amazing stuff. Since I couldnít possibly add anything to the discussion elowise, Iíll instead point out that the witch motif is one familiar in music: evil woman, devil woman, witchy woman, woman of the night, etc. So is the lady of the road, the lady unloved, the lady lost. And so Kronomyth 5.1 is a dark moon inhabited by an evil lamia whose rattlesnake tail left the scales in ELOís favor for the rest of the decade.
