  1.  
    Spent the early morning listening to Indian's exceptionally uncompromising From All Purity. There's probably something wrong with me, but I rather enjoyed it.
  2.  
    Sparks - 'A Woofer in Tweeter's Clothing' and 'Balls'
  3.  
    Re-connecting with Bob Marley's Island albums. Like finding a familiar face in a crowd.
    Catch a Fire, both original mix and the Blackwell mix still sound incredible . I can only imagine what it could have sounded like in 1972 (I was only 13 and a T.Rex fan, I still am!) to a white rock audience. An older friend once said to me that he always thought reggae was inside-out music because the beat wasn't four on the floor but on the off beat. What he makes of African music god knows.
    By end of the weekend had made it Exodus - a classic!
  4.  
    Rediscovering Stereolab. Love those harmonies.
  5.  
    Kaya to Confrontation played again.
    Have not played these since I bought the remasters in 2001 so it was a great suprise to reconnect with them.

    I love dipping into my collection this way and almost hearing afresh something I knew but had forgotten the subtelties of.

    Such a rainy Saturday! Only one thing for it. All the furniture pushed to one side in the main hall of Eden Mansions and dancing round to Mustspha Tettey Addy's classic Master Drummer from Ghana album.
