Re: LC: The Great Lyricist - free book in The Guardian 28th June

Thanks towerofsongbt for generosity in sending me a free copy of guardian booklet on LC. Just wanted to confirm I received it this week and express my gratitude as my email response did not go through yesterday. Only a LC fan would not charge! I am really going to enjoy this treasure (montrealer) :D
