Ballroom blitz

My Linn record player (see here) was one of the few casualties of our aliyah. It never worked after coming out of the container. I never got around to fixing it, and kept putting it off. But Susan made the appropriate arrangements as a birthday present, and last night was the first outing. The neighbors know my hi-fi is working…


It’s a 1983 (!) purchase from the then mighty Virgin Record Store in Union Street, Glasgow, still in its plastic packaging. I played the B side (!) with two tracks apiece from Gary Glitter, T Rex, and Slade. The sound was superb. The memories even richer. Thank you, Susan.
