Yep, here she is again to enliven an otherwise drab affair. Don't know what she's stirring up in her bowl but it's bound to be something strident, if not positively toxic...



...I just hope there's still some room in the recycling bin for all that cardboard.

Yeah,I do serve up the goods don't I?!

Aye, that ye do, and bless ye for it! I love dubious LP/CD covers (as reprobate ejectees from UC may remember) and it seems that there are still rich pickings to be had.

Hmmm, perhaps a trifle careless...



...nevermind, it's better than the mother-in-law popping round for favourite hymns on the harmonium...

she had been standing on her head at the bottom of a lake for years on end!

Hmmm. Why does that sound strangely familiar?

Bloody Nora! "I'll try and squeeze another one out", "Madam, your dumplings are boiling over" and "Can I audition for Magnum P.I."...

...the CD covers that taste forgot.

Iolanthe is 139 years old today, still not bad for a fairy...

any thoughts on the various versions of The Merchant of Venice... Sir Vivian Dunn versus the Marco Polo version with Andrew Perry??    I've been having a difficult time locating the Dunn version..

Although the Penny recording is complete, I still prefer the Dunn in terms of performance and recording - the Marco Polo acoustic is simply too dry. The Dunn has been reissued several times on CD by EMI, initially as a filler to Malcolm Sargent's Ruddigore. See:
