A mate of mine (who's not really a huge folk-rock fan to be honest) has just bagged the complete Swarb! Free Reed box set from his local library sale for, er, 25p.  Ridiculous!


Holy cow!  Can't help but wish a fan had found it.

There is some great stuff in the library sales if you can be bothered to sort through it. Just bought, Chris Wood's Albion, Three Daft Monkeys' of stones and bones, John Rutter, the choral collection, Kate Rusby 10, and Richard Digance This is Great Britain. All for 50p each. That is less than it costs to hire the double CDs from the library.

Having worked in a local authority library (and seeing what things are got rid of for) it is absolutely criminal how little they value their council tax payer's assets.  Nice when you get a bargain of course, but outrageous nonetheless...

On the way home from the Wildflower Duathlon held this morning at the Botanical Gardens of Wales - which I didn't realise, until I spotted a roadsign - are not far from the Land of Beer (Llandybie, home of TAW's very own Andy & Wendy Leslie), we stopped at a craft centre near Lydney, and I picked up Steven Sproat's "Fruit for the Soul" CD for just £1 - brand new and still sealed!

Aimee Mann – ‘The Forgotten Arm’ and The Waterboys – ‘This is the Sea’ @ £1 each, from a charity stall at my local hospital.  A nice little consolation after having some stitches removed.

Music Magpie are closing all their That's Entertainment stores by the end of May,


Not surprised, they're rubbish!



Agreed however there's 75% off all stock now, managed to wade through the tat to find titles by Peter Hammill, Micheal Chapman, Rory Gallagher, Miles Davis, Eliza Carthy, Catfish and the Bottlemen and loads of old blues - 32 CD's for £22.56!



Latest haul, 16 CD's for £8.99, including Steve Tilston Trio, Astral Weeks, John Wesley Harding (the singer), Hawkwind In Search Of Space, Gretchen Wilson, Bonnie Raitt's Nick Of Time and loads of 10000 Maniacs ... but there's a lot of rubbish to wade through.

Am I ready for "highbrow" culture?!

Browsing the Cancer Research shop in Gloucester yesterday, I picked up the 1997 re-releases of the Sir Georg Solti/Vienna Philharmonic recordings of Wagner's "Das Rheingold" (2CDs) and "Gotterdammerung" (4CDs), each is in its own box with comprehensive booklet, for £1.50 and £2.00 respectively.  According to reviews I've seen, the original recordings (1959-1966) are rated as being the best versions of these works, and Decca engineers used CEDAR technology to get the best possible transfer to digital.

If (and its a BIG if) I enjoy listening to them, then a) it'll be the first time I've ever really "got into" opera, and b) I'll have to search for "Siegfried" and "Die Walkure" from the same set of releases to complete the Ring cycle.

Monsieur Wagner has good moments, but awful quarters of an hour! Gioachino Rossini.

I lent a friend the complete Ring Cycle. He listened to all of it twice, to be certain that he did not like it.

I occasionally listen, but am not a fan.

Love Opera, Mozart is a genius ... he must have composed the 14 hour The Ring Cycle on the 17th Century equivalent of acid.
