    My copy is crystal clear and dynamic. A few clicks here and there though, not removed by cleaning. Wonderful album. Great rhythmic sounds, greek lute and drumming. Highly recommended.

    Music Matters pressings are always excellent. If you want some of the best but can be pricey.

    My annual ANZAC day listen. But this year a 1963 mono version I found yesterday at the local op shop for $1 in surprisingly good condition, although the box is a bit worn.

    If only I could get it for only $125!

    Out of interest how much was the Buckley? It seemed to be listed for about USD45 or GBP45 So in AU dollars, $120?

    I really wanted the Sigur Ros and Jeff Buckley but nowhere to be seen by the time I got to the largest record store in Auckland.

    YOUNG FATHERS - Cocoa Sugar As one who enjoyed the debut Dead, and WMABMT really looked forward to this latest release. And I'm not at all disappointed! SUEDE - Suede Classic 90's britpop.

    PHIL FRANCE - The Swimmer Ex Cinematic Orchestra member, France's solo effort is indeed very cinematic. Sweeping and angelic in places, its supposed to be about his experience learning to swim. Don't really see that myself but very enjoyable never-the-less.

    Damn. As a cello fan I really want this but with postage its about $165 for 3x 10" lps (at about 60 mins)...

    Bluesound Vault 2

    Luc's problems sound just like what I had with my Squeezebox, always dropping off the network, having to be rebooted, router/modem restarted, restarted again, reconfigured and then still nothing. Then next day OK, only to drop off next time I tried to use it etc I've been much more lucky with the Vault2. Only had one major drop out after about 6 months of flawless performance, which was solved by doing reboots of the modem and Vault. Once every few months the lappy (using Win 10) might not find the Vault2 on the network but all I need to do is turn the laptop off and on again. Never had to delve into the registry or fiddle much with the network settings, touch wood. Even when updating the BluOS the Vault2 automatically reboots itself, so for me at least it really has been a case of plug and play. But as Luc alludes, I'm only driving my 4x4 around the city.

    Bluesound Vault 2

    The files on my Vault2 are accessible from anywhere on my network. Backup files ditto. Had a NAS but ditched it as too complicated and slow start up.

    If you liked Between Two Shores then you'll love his other albums, and Once is how I got to know him through this brilliant movie. Also check out The Swell Season albums.

    Continuing on my Temporary Residence 5lp mystery box for US$25 ULTRAISTA - electro pop. Probably won't listen to this again. Not really my thing although its well produced and crafted well. Young Widows - Easy Pain. Post hard core? Again not my thing. The Books ‎– Music For A French Elevator And Other Short Format Oddities By The Books 2LP Now we're talking. Fantastic! Electronic, propulsive sounds. Brilliant.
