  1. Lou Reed Took the A Train

    I kind of agree. Lou to me was one of the true giants, up there with Dylan. Good appreciation from the Guardian. http://www.theguardian.com/music/2013/oct/27/lou-reed-velvet-underground-rock-music Very sad day.
  2. Andre Previn - Jazz Releases

    Will always be difficult for me to not think of Eric and Ernie when Andre Previn is mentioned (I was born in Luton).
  3. Where are you buying your music today?

    Same here Brownie, the various Disk Union stores around Tokyo have excellent selections of used CD's often at lower prices than the cheapest Amazon sellers. When I do buy online it is almost always from one of the Amazon sites.

  5. What music did you buy today?

    Picked this up for around $19 in a Disk Union store sale.
  6. What music did you buy today?

    Knew I would need this eventually, just waiting for the right price ($40).
  7. What Are You Watching

    I'm enjoying it more as it goes along. Me too. Five episodes now, really excellent television.
  8. I don't know who Hans is, but I agree with this sentiment whole-heartedly. He's the guy who turned a thread about Chris being in a documentary into a thread about him and Aloc....all the while proclaiming he's innocent of what most everyone thinks he meant, but are now twisting what he meant (wink, wink) to what he didn't mean (wink wink). Ironically, he also proclaimed he was leaving the board....if you're going to do that.....might as well do it in a thread that was meant to be about Chris....but still posts....and apparently doesn't have me on ignore. The melodrama! There will be a pop quiz on this. And you are simply a troll. I would miss Hans if he stopped posting here. Not you. Agreed, hope Hans sticks around, he is a very valuable contributor to this board.

  10. Ann Burton for certain

    Only album I have by her is this but I like it a lot. I think she is particularly good on ballads.

  12. Yes, right. Notice how much stuff this article is trying to sell you? From this side ot the Atlantic, Americans are viewed as being a bit too fetishistic about cleanliness. Mind you, I've got to say that it's a pleasure to have a piss or a crap in public loos in America, but nowhere else I've been in the world. MG You should come to Tokyo MG. Best toilets anywhere with all the bells and whistles!

  14. What Are You Watching

    Person of Interest - Season 2. Incredibly entertaining and even better than season one so far (half a dozen episodes). Pretty topical too!
  15. Good price (around $23) on the latest Hip-O-Select Clifford Brown box "The Singers Sesions" at Amazon Japan. http://www.amazon.co.jp/Singers-Sessions-Dinah-Washington-Sarah/dp/B0094GW93W/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1370249055&sr=8-2&keywords=clifford+brown+the+singers
  16. Tribute to Big John Patton

    Just made my modest pledge. Really hope you make it Jim.
