    This is just absolutely stunning. It should win awards.

    again, I wonder why it takes 25 months to release?

    I realize now how utterly predictable I've become. So, not wanting to disappoint:

    This is a shame. This is a stunningly well sung performance, but on a lousy excuse of a CD pressing. Skips, gaps, you name it. One or two of the gaps goes on long enough - minutes - that I wondered if my iTunes had gone down or the sound system had powered off. I guess I should try gently wiping down the discs and re-loading, see if that works.

    There was an updated version of ITunes last week. It was suppose to fix the skipping issue that I mentioned in another thread. I didn't update yet since I got the skipping fixed with another version I got from their site. I have been so busy with work I didn't want to deal with not having music . Maybe this weekend I will run the update and hope nothing breaks.

    We have the "swinging ball" in cricket, which came from the curve ball in baseball, which came from cricket from dock workers who couldn't be ar$ed (or who just couldn't afford the time) to play a ball game which lasted all day (or three whole days)...



    sorry...

    I babble sometimes

    I am spending the morning again with Tolomeo.

    I love Handel. Absolutely without a shadow of doubt my all time favourite composer in the entire galaxy. Well for today, that is.
    And this is one of his best.

    Verdi : La Traviata.
    PIlar Lorengar / D .F-D . G.Aragal

    I never know if I like this version (except from Lorengar) or to load it.
    Aragall sounds fresh but not the young hot lover , the least said about D.F.D (on this role the better)
    Decca on L.P
