Yard list

CD’s:

COHEN, LEONARD – SONGS OF LOVE AND HATE, COLUMBIA US CD re

Re-mastered version of his mighty 3rd album

GLASS, PHILIP – PHOTOGRAPHER, CBS US CD ‘84

There was a music video for “Photographer – Part 3” that I remember

NYMAN, MICHAEL – DROWNING BY NUMBERS (O.S.T.), CAROLINE US CD ’88

NYMAN, MICHAEL – GATTACA (O.S.T.), VIRGIN US CD

A pair of Nyman soundtracks

PAPA WEMBA – EMOTION, REALWORLD UK CD

African artist who has worked with Marc Hollander, Hector Zazou etc.; I like this label

REICH, STEVE – TEHILLIM, ECM DE CD ’82

The only one of Reich’s ECM titles I was missing


Vinyl:

AKKERMAN, JAN – IT COULD HAPPEN TO YOU, CHARLY UK LP ’82

Focus guitarist – recorded in ’82, but not released until ’85

BLANCMANGE – SECOND HELPINGS – BEST OF, LONDON UK LP

11 track version of their “Best Of” – the CD has 12 tracks

FRAZIER CHORUS – SLOPPY HEART, VIRGIN UK 12” (VSTX)

B-Side is “Sloppy Heart” (Alternate Mix)

GABRIEL, PETER – PETER GABRIEL (1st album), CHARISMA UK LP

Lovely UK copy with inner-sleeve

HARVEY BAND, Sensational ALEX – ROCK DRILL, MOUNTAIN UK LP ‘78

This copy has a sticker on the back cover, indicating that a song was changed…

RILEY, TERRY – KEYBOARD STUDY 2, BYG FR LP

’69 or ’70 – Germ ( = Groupe d’Etude et Realisation Musicales ) play Terry Riley in France!

STREETWALKERS – VICIOUS BUT FAIR, VERTIGO UK LP die-cut cover

1977 Chapman / Whitney album with a die-cut cover (for the eyes) that the U.S. version didn’t get

WAKEMAN, RICK – 1984, CHARISMA UK LP ’81

I have found myself somewhat fond of some of Wakeman’s 80’s output; I love LP’s on Charisma

WONDER STUFF – NEVER LOVED ELVIS, POLYDOR UK LP ’91 “Size Of A Cow”

Certainly never saw an LP for this, their 3rd album before!

Re: Frazier Chorus

Wow! You got the remix of "Sloppy Heart?" One ding on that record is that it was mis-pressed with some copies saying remix but playing full length version. MAking any purchase a crap shoot. I've never seen on in any case. What's it like?

re: Hobbies.

Well. It's obvious. With your sock collection, it could only mean "Tango Dancing".
