Re: Latest vinyl 'finds'.

First LP I've ever bought with the Elektra 'Atom' label design.

Re: Nothing In Particular

We've just been getting some PROPER rain over here. Only started about 3 hours ago, but when I came out of work the roads were awash, car's headlights on, got soaked just getting to the car. Definitely needed, though.

Re: Noise cancelling headphones

Thanks for the input. In my case I need to cancel voices, as that's the main source of distraction in the office. I'm told there are different types , or not all models can cope with nulling voice noise ?

Noise cancelling headphones

I'm currently looking around at options on noise-cancelling headphones for work. I would prefer it if they could cure the noise problem at source, and give everyone a break, but there you go.

Re: What Are You Listening To Right This Minute?

Spent too much time on Youtube this evening. See to have a fixation with the Beatles c.1963-1965 currently.
Listen, do you want to know a secret, If I fell, If I needed someone, Paperback writer, etc.
