Nothing to report today really...

I have expanded the content of my phone to include every purchase of 2015 thus far - I've been able to do this by restricting any item with more than one disc, to just one disc...

So the current soundtrack comprises some 66 titles...

As you can see, almost half of them were sampled today - six highlights being Free's "Sweet Tooth", Booker T's "Soul Clap '69", Nietzches's "Das Fragment an sich", Ter Veldhuis's "Where the Heart is", Schulhoff's "Divertimento fur Streichquartett" and the Jacque Loussier Trio's interpretation of the adagio from Bach's Italian Concerto...

In addition, albums by Isaac Hayes and Rheostatics were played in full, the latter due to an announcement that they will reform to play their album "Music Inspired by the Group of 7" in Toronto in early September...

I wish I could go...

Good skies again, including good clouds and trees - the pictures below offer double takes...

"Agents of Shield" and new arrivals "Newzoids" and "Delivery Man" also entertained...

Lights out on the territories...

Highlight of the Day : Enjoying new music - and old music...
