Quality time with the family at home...

Tangerine Dream - Pergamon
Lee Scratch Perry - The Black Ark Years
Dusty Springfield - Hits Collection
Stockhausen - Helikopter Streichquartett

Met with Bobby in Fopp, not pre-arranged...

He advised he would try my solution re my MP3s and his iTunes tonight and let me know (later he texted re a successful outcome)...

Back home, after two episodes of Corrie and the last "Miranda" of the series, what was happening in Crispycat Towers?

I was watching a documentary on Karl-Heinz Stockhausen's "Helikopter Streichquartett"...

Meg the Black Cat was snoozing...

...and the Exec Producer was, for the first time ever, making some cakes - it's her birthday tomorrow...

That's enough probably...

No, wait - Impossible Songs featured the "influential albums" site - but you can only access it if you're a Facebook Drone - which I'm not..

Pretty shitty list though...

Much better is the half a wee cake Anne has just brought to me to scoff as I type - mmm, mmm...

Much better too is this list from the Guardian seven years ago - at least it explains why the 50 listed albums are influential...

I have over 20 of them...

Lights out...
