Rather than dig out the mp3 player & put it on charge, I just put the entire mp3 collection on random play on the computer. Decided to give it 10, rather than 5, since it's from the full collection, which would fill my 60GB iPod more times than I want to think about.

1. The Beatles - Polythene Pam
2. The Searchers - Goodbye My Love
3. Bruce Murdoch - Busted & Banned
4. The Yardbirds - Heartful Of Soul (Sitar Version)
5. Lee "Pork Chop" Green - (Good Mornin' Susie) I'm Gonna Beat Your Bread
6. Davy Graham - Panic Room
7. Miles Davis - Willie Nelson (Insert 1)
8. The Paragons - The Tide Is High
9. Pig's Ear - Northfields
10.  My Phuong Nguyen - Huong Vietnam

I can't help thinking that there is one in that list that sticks out like a very sore thumb with a two tone mullet Andy!  Grin

Meanwhile, mine is giving me:-

Roadsinger - Yusuf
Walking Zero - Sneaker Pimps
Buffalo Girls -Malcolm McLaren
Numb - U2
Yeah Yeah - Cyndi Lauper
I Was Wrong - Danny Wilson
London (I'm Coming To See You) - Glen Campbell
Blowin' Away - Joan Baez
Setting Sun - Nils Lofgren
Destiny 1999 - Go Home Productions

I hung on for 10 as the first 5 were a bit of a peculiar selection. My Ipod got stuck in the 80s for a bit there!

Oh I'm not judging. You only have to look at my list to see that I have no grounds. It is just so generically removed from the rest of the selection (with the possible exception of the PSBs, whose latest very fine album I was listening to just this morning).

1. Evergreen - Mostly Autumn
2. Forty - Four - Howlin' Wolf
3. Le Mystere Du Box Vulgare - Little Johnny England
4. Down in Yon Green Garden - Ydgrassil
5. I Guess it Doesn't Matter Anymore - Blackmore's Night

&

1. Acceptable Losses - John B Spencer
2. Clueless - Bodega
3. Londoner Symphony #104 in D - Haydn - London Festival Orchestra

That particular CD, 'Easy Sunrise', is indeed lovely. On the back of that, I spent slightly over the odds on eBay for one of their earlier CDs, 'Pieces', which was nice, but not nearly as good. Not a bad thing for a band to get better as they go on though.

I know we shouldn't correct people's spelling on here, but just in case someone wants to google the band, it's Ygdrassil, not Ydgrassil.
