The operating in less than ideal circumstances scenario continues...

...while HQ awaits further work on its upgrade...

Creeker Craig became the first person other than me and a not really that impressed Exec Producer to hear the proposed new CBQ opus, "Schneewitchen"...

He opined it "an acquired taste" that "gets pretty mental around 28 minutes" - both fair comments...

But he likes it - "The use of wildlife is cracking - it'd impress me even more if you actually recorded that out your window" - which is weird, because that's exactly what I did...

"It's filled with the perfect amount of melancholy that I would expect from a CBQ release"...

Top man!

I also listened to work in progress re his latest solo work over the weekend - and it popped up again this morning in a packed daily soundtrack (with 35 of my last 50 acquisitions on shuffleplay) and very much impressed...

Looking forward to the final release, though I suspect it'll be a wee while coming as he really is putting a lot of work into it...

From the sublime to the ridiculous as I looked at clothes dryers at lunchtime...

...with some work re Reptile Records online shop also undertaken - more orders to post tomorrow...

The possible new Cloudland Blue Mobile project was also progressed...

Meanwhile, at Crispycat Towers, the electrician had been putting in some sterling work so that CBQ HQ could move to the opposite side of the room once it's renovation is completed...

There now follow some pictures of electrical sockets...

In the evening, more listening to April music - which rather expanded today's playlist with another 29 LPs sampled..,

"Person of Interest" continued to be very much enjoyed - as was home made soup...

To bed with the classic Gentle Giant LP "In A Glass House", the first of theirs that I ever owned, on the cans - superb...

Highlight of the Day : Craig's critique of my new work...
