Ten days into the year but writing this 20 days in - I really am hopeless at keeping this up to date...

Anyway, some scenes first thing...

I wasn't up too early...

Over the next fortnight I'll be whittling 1982 LPs down to my top 5...

These, by me, from that very year, will not feature...

...but here are my Top 100 ready to be a-whittled...

Some crackers in there...

Comment upon which, re Michael Nyman, led me to seek out this single from my 5 big boxes of 7"ers and give it a spin...

Bought in a market in Amsterdam in late 1982...

The B Side is not on the LP...

...and they forgot to add the paint to the label...

Later on, listening to some jazz...

...and wondering if my headphones are too big...

I do like a cheeky wee jazz compilation, especially Blue Note...

Moved on to this 4CD set, bought in Hamburg a few years ago now...

...which soundtracked me into the night...

A night on which we scored a miserable 60 at "University Challenge" - questions getting harder...

Lights out...

Highlight of the Day : 1982...
