Yesterday I felt like listening to some Christmas music, and had a hazy memory of having a CD of the All Souls Orchestra somewhere. I had a flick through my CD folder but couldn't find it, and then remembered that I'd looked for it last year and found it to be broken - CDs, it appears, are not 100% bullet-proof after all, and this one had decided that the silvery backing wanted to peel off, rendering it well and truly dead. So, that CD had ended up in the bin about this time last year. So long All Souls Orchestra.At least, that was until I noticed I had a backup CD in my folder that I had created way back in 2002, on which I had crammed 9 music albums, some of them 2-disc albums, in MP3 format. Lo and behold, there was the All Souls Orchestra album! So I got to listen to the Christmas music after all.Well, eventually. (more…)
Classical, jazz, pop, rock… pick a genre, I’ll talk about it.
