    Is that Sound Machine in Reading? I've got some great stuff in there over the years.

    Yep, that one - Harris Arcade. Loads of dross though. I could have picked up the first four Led Zeppelin albums and a BBC Sessions CD, and half of Tangerine Dreams' back catelogue at a pound each too, except I'm not a hippy. Shed loads of U2 as well (crap), Pulp & Blur (got the good ones).

    It's always reassuring though when there aren't too many CDs you've already got.....

    I remember finding the Oxfam shop by the river very reliable too. I think I got the first Rjd2 album in there for £2.

    Squarepusher - Selection Sixteen

    I think it was his first after Japan great production and atmosphere . Red Guitar is very catchy on that . Everything and Nothing is a collection some songs remixed some alternative takes etc . It’s got Ride on it which Ive always played a lot and come back to.

    I've been nailing the Jansen / Barbieri album from '85 quite a bit recently too - peculiar musical direction of travel for all of them tbf...

    John Ghost - Time/Traveler.

    It's single reminds me a little of glass museum by Tortoise.

    Joanna Newsom - Divers.

    I don't often manage to pick exactly the right music for the mood I'm in (not at the moment anyway), or the best time to listen to this album, but this time it's both :cool:

    Shame - Songs of Praise

    How did this pass me by when it was released last year? I only investigated them after they were cited in a Fontaines D.C. review, and this is excellent.

    Those are great time capsules of the period. I like them more as historical documents than to listen to though.

    Have you checked their Paris in the Spring comp? The cover photo is amazing:

    Bob Stanley has also put together a series of not-bad compilations for Sainsbury's, which you can buy on heavy double vinyl as you pick up your weekly shop. Much more commercial than the comps above, but they've all got some gems
