Thanks. I have it bookmarked.

Hi Mike,

Please be aware that there is software that can record an audio stream. I guess I will be listening to this for years to come.



Hi Mike,
don't know if it is just me, but I can't play the mix - the site just endlessly says "analysing" - I'm using a Mac and Firefox. Thought you might want to know.

OT Comment, Mike, but just in case you are not aware, Prefab Sprout (a longtime favourite of mine), a band whose heyday were the 80s -although I'm convinced you know them- just released, some months ago, an album which was whelved due to disagreements with their label, CBS at the time. And one of the songs in that album is Let there be music. The whole album -which is only a draft, such has it has been released- is a pure delight around the topic of love for music, and in particular the song "Music is a princess" is a real wonder.

In case you knew this album, then sorry and disregard this comment.

I don't know them well--I remember an elegaic, romantic tune called "Cars and Girls" from way back. I'll be on the lookout for "Let There Be Music."


Yeah, Cars and girls was probably his biggest hit. But they have much better, more delicate songs than that.

If you want to pay some attention to Prefab Sprout, just try to listen the remastered 2 CD album "Steve McQueen" (although its title in the USA was changed due to issues with the inheritors of the real Steve McQueen). It was recently released (recently in like 2 or 3 years ago, that is ;-) ), including the original recording in never-as-pristine quality, and besides new, acousting versions recorded by Paddy McAloon (mainly on guitar). That album is one of the very best of the 80s, and Paddy's quality as songwriter will never be praised enough.

Absolutely OT, but you may enjoy this...

Guess what's being hyped these days on commercial TV in Spain? A collection of the very best jazz albums... On "thick" VINYL LPs!

American jazz albums, or Spanish?
