Today I finished off my list of LPs I would have owned by the end of 1970 if I had only been allowed to buy those which got into the charts...

It comprised these 71...


And here they are by chart entry date order...


A good way to spend a Sunday, or, at least, part of it...


Views this morning...



Today's classical selection was, funnily enough, an album which is on that very list - although I did not buy it until 2017 when Anne, Jorg and I drove to Hann Munden for the day and I came across it, through the back, indeed at the very back, of the Rotes Kreuz shop, for just one of your European Euros...


Also spent some time today organising/integrating re my various composer/various artist classical CDs...


Then some reading on jazz, which led me to listen to Ornette Coleman...


We had wanted to go for a walk - the St Andrews rose is starting to flower...


..but the rain was on...


...which called for more Ornette, while Teddy kept an eye on the weather...


A run through some Capital Models covers with the boys in the background.  When I mentioned on Whatsapp to them that I'd done "O Superman", there was a great deal of no love for the piece and so it has been dropped.  "Summer of '69" however, appears to be in...

Arty-fartiness defeated once again by democracy...

No arty-fartiness though re the Eurovision Song Contest...

This year's show was cancelled but we did watch the 2 hour thing last night which gave 30 second excerpts and messages from each of the artists whose dreams were smashed by Covid 19...

This afternoon, some considerable time spent listening to the full tracks and downloading those that took my fancy...

A bit of a juxtaposition with the far out jazz of Mr Coleman...

My winner was Roxen's "Alcohol You" from Romania...

Indeed, I liked it so much, I then down loaded what amounts to a 2CD set of her work, including a plethora of remixes...

Expect some Eurovision in this week's podcast (an annual event of course!)...

In other news, Anne finished her latest painting...


From my photographic records, I believe it took its place at the painting station on 26 March...

Excellent work the EP...

In the afternoon, celebratory scones...


...and squirrel...


Today's random record choice...


...was Kraftwerk's "Autobahn"....




...which was a lot better than I remembered...


I also dug this book out to give it a wee read - always good to have the vast history of classical music put into context...


And, of course, being Sunday, there was "Killing Eve"...

Which was good...

Lights out...

Highlight of the Day : Anne's painting prowess...
