The Blues

A short note: I have temporarily shortened the number of videos in my shows. I would like them to be more inclusive, but recently certain browsers seem to be having problems with playing these videos. With Firefox I’ve found a need to keep moving the mouse in order for the videos to load and play properly. I’m hoping this shorter list will improve the performance until this issue can be resolved. Internet Explorer is working better for viewing and the Avant browser has been reported to have no problems.

If you are having similar problems please comment which browser and operating system you are using. Also if they are playing properly I would like to know so I can try to figure out this problem.

Update - this seems to be an issue with Firefox. This is very disappointing as it is my preferred browser. In the meantime I must suggest using Internet Explorer or other browsers to view the videos on this page. I will update this message if and when Firefox resolves this problem.

Tonight I’ll take you on a trip into an American standard, so sit back, grab the tissues and get down with the Blues.
