Today, I was mostly listening to the music of 1969...

Yesterday's Twitter thing about Al Stewart started to grow arms and legs with all sorts joining in - in a particularly mocking way re Mr Stweart not being Prog - but he, himself is, of course, entirely innocent - it was all aimed at the Italian man who claims to be sole arbiter of what constitutes British Prog Rock...

Oh well..

To Fopp at lunchtime and found this for £3...

 It's a disc of demos recorded at the end of 1973 by David Bowie for his then girlfriend Ava Cherry...

It contains a few unreleased Bowie songs although, sonically, it's a wee bit disappointing...

The opening track "I Am A Laser" became "Scream Like a Baby" on Scary Monsters, seven years later...

This too for £4...

Previously (prior to 2002 that is) unreleased gems from the vaults of Motown...

And, taking us to £10, this 5CD set of party faves...

Around 40 of the 100 tracks are deemed to be not too bad (and in some cases excellent but in most of those, I already have the tracks in question)...

Tasty chicken pasta for tea, followed by some ripping and listening and "Fake or Fortune" on the Tivo...

A very late invite from Capital Model Keith to the Beaton Docket for another night of musicking came too late for anything to have been feasible and so I stayed in this evening - maybe next time...

Lights out...

Highlight of the Day : Erm, Fake or Fortune...
