Up just before 6...

...and noted I'd left a site open overnight about which I'd forgotten but which, this morning, led me to collect some German music for the collection...

A solo LP from ex-Tangerine Dream stalwart, Peter Baumann...

Two late 70's/early 80's synthi LPs by Adelbert von Deyen...

Two "singles2 by Deutsch-Amerikanische Feundschaft - with the welcome news that remaining member, Robert Gorl, is working on recordings made with the late Gabi Delgado Lopez to produce some new DAF stuff...

Six (count 'em) albums, including two career spanning compilations by Peter Hein (of Fehlfarben)'s other band, Family 5...

And, to cap it all, a Record Store Day release for 2020, said Fehlfarben, playing their classic debut "Monarchie und Alltag" in its entirety, live in Dusseldorf in 2017, a thing the Exec Producer and I witnessed in Berlin in 2018...

Quite a haul...

Some listening ensued...

Followed by today's classical piece, the final Tchaikovsky and possibly the best, his 6th symphony, from this box...

Yesterday's random album of the day was the soundtrack from "Christiane F : Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo"...

I don't have a record of exactly when I bought this but that means it was post 1983...

With tracks from “Station to Station”, “Low”, “Heroes”, “Stage” and “Lodger” and including the German version of “Heroes/Helden”, it is, of course, a top Bowie compilation...

Meanwhile, outside...

...the squirrels and birds have found a rival feeding station...

Breakfast, bacon rolls - to which an egg was added re mine...

Most of the day was spent watching TV and listening to the new acquisitions, although Anne also made an unrecorded rhubarb and custard dish with rhubarb from chum Lynn, which actually originated from Anne's mum's old garden...

Following on from Bowie above, today's random LP was Yello’s debut, “Solid Pleasure”, acquired on release as a 21st Birthday present from my chum Jorg Sonnenschein...

...followed by some posting up on Twitter of CDs acquired back in January - and given them a wee listen too...

In the evening, an Indian takeaway was followed by however many episodes of "Berlin Station" it took to get us to the end of series 2 - either 5 or six...


...time for bed...

Highlight of the Day : Binge-watching Berlin Station...
