What Did You Buy?
Can't remember whether this was the first piece of music I ever bought or not - might have been Floyd's 'Meddle' album. But when I heard this on the radio I just had to have it in my hands. And it has not aged at all. Superb piece of work - Just listen to the individual orchestral element in this  - bloody marvellous. And then of course the choir comes in and blows the whole thing away. An eargasm in every sense of the word.

I didn't buy anything but my gorgeous step-daughters came over the other day when I was out (and without Dani knowing what they were doing) and they went into my music room and noticed my list of "to purchase" albums on a whiteboard,
well, because between us (Dani and I) have had a pretty crappy year they decided to cheer us up a bit, they paid for a car service on Dani's car and bought me several cds from my "to purchase" list,
heres what they turned up with today before I went to work...I know they meant well but I did "tell them off" for purchasing them, they have more important things to do with their money IMO,(one is purchasing a house, the other has a 14 month old daughter), but I thanked them anyway....
and yes, it did bring a smile to my face

Gift Card purchases today:

cd store had a "3 for $20" deal happening on selected cds so I picked these ones up:

the four Jackson albums will sit nicely next to the other two I own plus a compilation.
the Cohen, pretty sure our resident Cohen-phile MH wasn't a big fan of these two albums but I could be wrong?

also, picked up this one below, 2cd set of the gig plus dvd of the show(which is what I bought it for)

Jeff Lynne's ELO "wembley or bust" 2017 live gig
