Dusting off old Vinyl
If you know what I'm talking about, you're too old...
Recently while on a flea market trawl I was ecstatic to find an original 1970 gatefold vinyl copy of The Greatest Show On Earth's album The Going's Easy. 6 tracks; 3 per side of a 7-man band from the UK whose biog. calls it a "mixture of R&B soul, jazz and prog-rock".
We've put it through a pre-amp from turntable into the computer and recorded it via ProTools as CD output and I've been listening to it on headphones - mindblowing. To think it's 37 years old is quite a weird thought, since quite a bit of current music sounds more old fashioned than this
But I'm rambling. It's been that sort of week. Now it's the end of February and coming Thursday I'm moving my mum into a frail care facility - a 100km roundtrip drive away from home. It's the only decent place that currently has a room available and today we drove there to take a mattress and measure up the (tiny) room in order to make the hard decisions of what items to take along and what to put on auction or chuck out.
The good thing is that my favourite cat / dog shelter is quite nearby, so while I'm visiting my Mum I can also pop in there and maybe help them out with their cattery
Thank you all for making

And so for another week ahead. The weeks seem to be spinning by in a mad rush.
