Only put right on remasters. Doh!


Interesting

It was Qobuz for me - all in tact

I entirely agree - that surprised me too!

'Polarised' - that's the word I was looking for earlier

[and bad bloody taste :D ]

mmmm - U2 strike me as antithetic to this experience.

I mean it seems a bit odd: 'The Joshua Tree - a very neglected album in my view' 'That's Bob Dylan on keyboards there - wonder what he's dong these days?' ' You never hear any of these songs on the radio now, do you?'

I suspect U2 will do all right without us. When I next meet Bono in Poundland I will have to pretend to be engrossed in the sun screen display...

I had BB as a comfortable middle order bet (no disrespect intended) but I think Grossman lost points.

John on his own or with Bert Jansch might have faired better

Please be very careful when standing in the proximity of Edge. Do nothing, nothing at all that could cause whatever is covering the top of his cranium to become dislodged. Nothing. Do not sneeze in his vicinity. Do not even think about toying with a fishing rod and line. Stand well clear. Ask someone else to survey and choose a shampoo for you.

Pere Ubu and Joy Division were the only real head scratchers, with Ubu's sometimes challenging sonics making them a little bit more likely to be your choice than Chris', but then he's more of the punk/new wave generation than you.

Oh God!

I have met Dave Thomas any number of times.

He wouldn't like that comment at all!

That's odd, because last week I happened to bump into him in Waitrose. "Ay oop Dave," I said, "tis grand to be in here with the sound of people's feet clicking on the tiles, providing a most nonrhythmic percussive backdrop to the hiss of the coffee, the murmur and sigh of the passing traffic and the randomly placed high pitched squeals of anguish when potential customer after customer discovered that there were no jars of Heston Bloomingdahl's Organic Pass the Dutchy hand gels in stock. Very relaxin', almost soporific."

"Damn right," he answered, "I prefer sounds to be much more challenging, to make listener's question what are songs, what are legitimate instruments." I bade him farewell and as I headed towards the exit saw that he had indeed fallen, headfirst into the teabags in a deep coma like sleep.
