hi there

for no declared or apparent reason i thought it might amuse some, well my sister, to a degree to see what has become of a gift from, ooh, 17 or 18 years ago.

Gillian, for one Christmas i believe, got me an absolute king of portable CD players. a JVC one, too, that looked and sounded mega.

whatever became of it? as it happens, it's running just fine thanks, and can be heard daily in our kitchen at verk! here's Euphodia and Jeanette showing off how they look after it probably better than i ever did!

i am sure they shall continue to look after it for the rest of its days, too. i'm using a similar but different one at home, sadly a Sony not a JVC but it does get the job done.

the first thing i ever played on that magnificent stag of a stereo? if i remember correctly, it will have been this album.

Black Grape's It's Great When You're Straight.....Yeah, the title a reference more to the amusing idea of Shaun Ryder being drug free than any sexual connotation, was a magnificent bastard of an album when it was released and i would imagine it still sounds exceptionally good today. to check, however, i think i will dig out my copy and have it on in the car at the correct volume for the rest of the week.

hope you are impressed to see it still going, Gill!

be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
