Up at seven and started the day with Glass after ending it with him at 1 this morning...

Reviews of Bowie Prom were better than expected...

What did I miss?

Picked up four tracks from the BBC for a cheeky wee EP - Almond's "Starman" is actually nowhere near as bad as it seemed last night...

Anyway, compiled and listened to the originals of the 20 track setlist...

Reminded me of just how good Bowie was - there'd been a kind of block since his death...

The final few tracks soundtracked breakfast with Anne...


Then some more sorting out in the back room...


Classical Composers A-Z now fully on the shelving units, Classical by performer and classical compilations now on the back wall.  All box sets sorted out too...

The postie brought these recent orders...

A rockin' 2CD live set of mid 70's US prog from Kansas...


...and a 9CD box of Ligeti, containing over 10 hours of his work - for under £13...

  
Listening to those before taking Anne to the bus for a day out for her - for me, it was off to the Post Office to fulfil and order...


Back home, monitoring today's League Cup games - Queens scraped a 1-0 win against Stenhousemuir to secure an unseeded place in the last 16...

Ligeti and Kansas continued to be enjoyed...

Sang through a few songs, realising my voice is probably shot...

We'll see...

A couple of episodes of "Supernatural" then picked Anne up and we enjoyed the penultimate "Musketeers"...

To bed with more Kansas on the cans...

Highlight of the Day: Re-awakening Bowie...
