And the name R Daneel popped into my head as soon as I read your words! 

I've not read that in more than twenty years too!

 

Music, I phoned the local radio station when I got home to inform them of

an accident on the A15 for their traffic report. I was asked if I wanted a record

played so I asked for (and they played it) The Moody Blues, Driftwood. Lovely.

You bunch of old farts.

Music is alive and well - it's just hiding.

I was playing that on Friday during my 7 hour drive up through France. Made the time go quicker.

As to the vinyl topic; I have over 400 of them going back to my first purchases which were Johnny and the Hurricanes, and In Style with the Crickets. My daughter has told me in no uncertain terms, that I am not to get rid of them as she wants them left to her in my will. Naturally, I will obey.

 

John.

 

While I have around 55 Tangerines Dream CD's, I only have 4 or 5 Edgar Froese solo albums, including that one. 

 

On the subject of vinyl v CD, the reasons I have around 250 vinyl albums and 2,500 CD''s is dead simple.

 

One, space, and two, cost, and three my hearing has deteriorated to the extent that if there is a difference in sound quality between the two I wouldn't hear it.

Exit, Hyperborea & my personal favorite The Poland live album are never far from my play list. Perfect train journey music, even better for long distance European journeys!

Oh and the recent and last album that Edgar Froese worked on is a must for any fans of their late 70s early 80s albums.

That reminded me of the early 90s chart show on channel 4 that showed only videos. It was my era so I'm biased, but I rarely watch videos of "new" chart music. Maybe new stuff that would never get a look into our current charts.

Listening to 6Music is testament to that! Glad they are still going.

I was never really into 'The Stone Roses', but Ian Brown's solo stuff I love. Currently listening to his 'The Greatest' album. It's one of my all-time favourites, in fact there are so many excellent tracks, I had difficulty whittling them down to just two:
