    The 'Lockdown,' has eased a bit here. Which means that one can now visit the local record shop without booking an appointment first (no more than 4 visitors at a time, though). I wasn't going to go in. It's always too much of a temptation. There's always something that catches the eye. Eventually, I was in just long enough to come away with some John Lee Hooker & Linton Kwesi Johnson.

    Two excellent albums. I was lucky enough to hear Johnson live, the year before last. This album is from 1979. A dub poet at his best, with a truly excellent backing band. Rico on trombone!

      Friday afternoon, after work. Just popped in to local record shop, for a minute.

      Now, listening to this, whilst drinking Marston's English Pale Ale.

      Probably about as close as I'll get to England, for the foreseeable.

        Splurged a bit, this week.

        There's still a place in my heart for the London sound.

          That's an excellent bit of cover art!

            First time I heard the title track, I thought, 'Wow! That's for me!' Quite took me back to my misspent youth.

              The only album I bought this week, was, Anita Ward's Songs of Love. It's sweet album from the very apex of Disco. Only cost me, €5. I only really had to have it for the single track, Ring My Bell. There are very few pieces of music that I can say truly act as quantum time tunnels back to my youth, specifically in this case, when I was18-19. This track hearkens back to a time & place, very specific indeed.

                The cover to that is so good. When I bought the CD I could not understand why they had changed it to a colour photo. I showed my daughter the two covers - I still have my old vinyl copy - and she agreed that the original design was so good. Do people just think colour is more exciting?

                  I've a recent reprint of some old 2000AD Nemesis stories that have been coloured. Really garishly and strongly coloured. Utterly wrecked the old b&w artwork

                    Well look at this. CD versus vinyl
