I've been looking for this song in good quality. This is great! I personally think that music in 1970s is all groovy.

It is a fan of Rita Coolidge.
I bought several pieces of records. However, it was the times of the CD and was made to buy a CD again.

I became a fan of Boz Scaggs concerning cover music.

Many memories of mine are linked to music. When I listen to this music, I remember that my friend called me to come to his home because he wanted to let me listen to a single record disc which he just bought. It was this song, Massachusetts in 1967.

Before he set the disc on the turn table of the Hi-Fi Stereo player in his room, he said, "You know I really like this song, which is very popular in the US. Now listen!". What happened was that the turn table didn't move at all. His Hi-Fi stereo player was out of order. After he knew that it was broken, he handed the disc to me, saying, "You listen to this music first. You can bring it to your home. I will have this player fixed. Then you will return it to me."  I went home with the disc and listened to the song. I knew what he was saying to me. It was really a nice song. 

I wonder where he lives and how he is doing now.

I think I was in Singapore when I came across this music. I was so much moved by the way Suzi sang the song.

Good morning, Sir.
English that I write is almost a thing by the machine translation.
It is not translated definitely when I write a Japanese sentence in the spoken language.
Therefore the sentence structure that is more Japanese than English improves.
I smile wryly for this phenomenon.(^_^;
I do not know whether I can read your English lecture.
However, I will tell you about the e-mail address by a different method.

Introduction

William ("Bill") provides cross-cultural business advice, coaching, consulting and training to native and nonnative English speaking business people. Training includes "Effective Presentation to Japanese Business People", "Cross-cultural Communication with Japanese Business People" and "Win-win Negotiation with Japanese Business People". On the other hand, he provides cross-cultural training to Japanese business people who are engaged in cross-border business.

Many attendees to Bill's seminars and training sessions enjoy his entertainer-like performance. He learned this method from an American professional trainer in Boston Massachusetts in 1990 when he received sales management train-the-trainer training from a fortune 500 company. The trainer said to Bill, "Sales is a show where a salesman is an entertainer", which in fact was said by Ed McMahon, the greatest talk show entertainer in the US. Thanks to this exciting experience, he has become an entertainer cum trainer. 

All programs that Bill produces are based on his empirical, down-to-earth, practical international business experiences for more than 30 years. He has analyzed such experiences and elicited important elements existing in actual cross-cultural business transactions.

They are utilized in the programs that Bill has made by himself. One of the strongest features is that his programs are not created from armchair theories but practical and actual business experiences of his own through mingling and struggling with a variety of business people in the world. Therefore, the benefits that the attendees can get from Bill's training are "effective, practical and useful solutions", which can be immediately applied to the business in relation to Japanese business people.

Two years ago I visited Cafe Marron often before or after I went to the office of fun-works Co., Ltd. which was located near this cafe. At the office of fun-works, I taught business English to Japanese business people. Yesterday, I visited the cafe for the first time in two years, remembering the days when I used to come to the cafe.
