    According the last.fm stats, the station plays around 4000 different tracks per month and they are from over 3000 different artists.
    Some of the high scorers are jingles by the bands so should not really count ... but The Fall never did a jingle for us.

    390 Degrees Of Simulated Stereo by Pere Ubu. Collection of live recordings originally released back in 1981, when for one reason or another I never bought it. Now re-released for Record Store Day on yellow vinyl. I'm away from home, so I'm listening to the download.

    Greenfields, Barry Gibb and various artists

    Now this is an oddity, but a really nice one!

    Barry Gibb (of the BeeGees, for those whose brain was too numb to take in the incessant play some decades ago) has come up with a bunch of his own and the group's songs, and has performed them them as duets with a clutch of mainly roots/country/folk types. These include Gillian Welch, Keith Urban, Jason Isbell, Alison Kraus, Dolly Parton and more.

    It works very well. Not really Saturday Night Feverish.

    Just started playing the second of my Record Shop Days purchases - the Ocean Songs set by Dirty Three (2 x LP of the original LP, 2 x LP of a live performance). Shame on the label for supplying a lousy download of 160k mp3 in this day and age. More than a little disappointed as the pressing's not that great either.
    In contrast, the Pere Ubu record (see a few posts earlier) included a choice of formats including lossless flac.

    In contrast to the above, my copy of Nick Cave and Warren Ellis' new LP Carnage arrived yesterday after some release delays - I think I pre-ordered this in February - it's a lovely pressing, but no download code (!). Of course it has been out there on streaming services for a while now, so the lack of a download code is no real issue. One of my top albums of 2021 so far.

    The Black Keys - Delta Kream

    Very nice blues-rock album. I hardly can stop this from playing since two weeks or so.
