  • What I've been up to since mid-July...

    Well, after a short trip to London in july, I spent the rest of the summer on a small island without running water, electricity or records.
    This left me with a pile of records that I didn't really have time to listen to, but it didn't stop me from buying more.
    Not living in my own apartment for almost a month didn't help either, but I finally got a few minutes at home to take some pics.
    (Please excuse the bad cropping, but I noticed I'd accidentally taken pictures of records I already posted...)

    Lalo Schifrin - The Liquidator - not listened yet
    Mary Lou Williams - Black Christ of the Anders - Listened through this yesterday, and lord is it a good one! Popsike tells me it should be a rather nice find at almost charity price, even though it's not the Saba-pressing.
    James Last - Hair - not listened yet
    Andre Previn - Rollerball OST - enjoying the funky Executive Party and Executive Dance Party
    Vangelis - Earth - not listened yet, but skipped through at least one track that caught my ear...

    If I bought an instant kick-ass collection like that I'd probably have to live without water and electricity for a while too
