Last day of the year - out into the gloom...


...but home in the light...


...kind of...


...having purchased my last three discs of 2015 - £4 all told from the British Heart Foundation shop...




Hogmanay drinks ensued...


...with predictable consequences...


Out in the dark to the local curry house...


...where the Exec Producer was looking lovely...


Yum pt 1...


Yum pt 2...


Home pre midnight, seeing things in with old DVDs of the Old Grey Whistle Test, switching to live TV for the Edinburgh fireworks, which looked impressive...

So off you go 2015...

Here are 325 of the 348 physical albums I acquired...


In addition to those (and the missing 23), over 300 albums were also acquired "digitally"...
