At the British Heart Foundation shop this lunchtime, I partook of these discs for £.99 each...

Turns out this, purporting to be "the best of" Captain Beefheart is actually just "Safe As Milk" in a slightly differnt sleeve from the copy I have already and without the bonus tracks...

Oh well..


...while this really is not very good at all - from 1973 when Zep were at their zenith - no, not very good at all...

In fact, it must now be deemed as one of the worst albums I own from that otherwise excellent year for music...


Back home, this had arrived...

While I am not really a fan of classical singing, it's actually pretty good...


All three made it to the tracklist for this week's podcast - I had to do a few swap arounds re pieces from other artists, going for shorter tracks to accommodate the newcomers...

On telly, two episodes of "Two Broke Girls" entertained...

That was it...

Highlight of the Day : Barber songs...
