And, mobilehaathi, a warm and public thank you for recommending 'Rome' to me. Wonderful music, and a terrific CD. Really love it, love it, and love it…...

I wish I had more in the same vein to recommend, but I'll certainly keep an ear out for such things. Hopefully you'll do the same!

With pleasure.

My only other two recent discoveries are the lovely Danish singer/composer/songwriter Agnes Obel, (a sort of cross between Erik Satie and Yann Tiersen, with a slight touch of Edith Piaf), and a very talented and somewhat alcoholic Irish/Eastern European group called 'Mutefish' who made an excellent album (which I bought having watched them perform as street artists) called 'On Draught'.

Some wonderful music; I also recall a 'B' side of one of their singles……. Remember all of those discussions on whether 'B' sides allowed groups to write and perform dross, or, whether they allowed for experimental and slightly more adventurous or original music than might have been expected to appear on the 'A' side, which would invariably feature the sort of music that the group in question would be expected to produce?

Anyway, this particular 'B' side featured an electronic interpretation of Erik Satie's haunting 'Gymnopedie No 1', which has long been a favourite of mine. I was blown away by a modern group which even know of this piece, let alone decided to offer an electronic homage to it….

The latest album (CD) which I have bought made by one of my favourite groups, namely the wonderful 'Pink Martini' from Portland, Oregon.

You are, well, one is, well, more precisely still, this one - me - is constantly surprised by the fact that time moves on in the lives of others, as well as mine. I have long loved the music of 'Pink Martini' - and have even had the privilege of seeing them perform live, a few years ago, when they gave a polished, gracious, lively and utterly accomplished performance in Dublin as part of their European tour.

However, I had forgotten that they might still be in the process of recording and producing fresh or new, albums. Browsing stuff online a little over a month ago, I took a look at their website, and spotted an album, a new one, that I had never heard of, whereupon I promptly ordered it and it was there, among a large pile of packages from Amazon when I returned home a few weeks ago.

The album is called 'Get Happy' and, as with everything ever recorded by the wonderful 'Pink Martini', it is, of course, excellent.

An old one, yes, quite an old one, but still a very, very good one.

This is the 'Guitar Quintet in D Major, G. 448 (grave assai)', sometimes known as 'The Fandango' by Luigi Boccherini. This version is played by the Spanish group Los Romeros.

And a few oldies, but not quite as old as Luigi Boccherini's 'Guitar Quintet Fandango in D Major.'

Today's oldies date from a more recent vintage, namely that era of what must have seemed at the time to be bottomless optimism. I am writing, of course, of the sixties.

Anyway, I am listening to a selection of a few relatively minor hits from the sixties. These include, Dupree, Simon and The Big Sound, ''Kites", and "Castle In the Sky"; "The Gods" with their hit: "Hey, Bulldog", 'Herman's Hermits' with theirs, "No Milk Today", 'The Locomotive' with "Mr Armageddon"; it also includes 'Parking Lot' with "World Spinning Sadly", and, finally, 'The Yardbirds' with "For Your Love."

A group called 'The Divine Comedy' (yes, named after Dante's book), with their album 'Casanova', (yes, that Casanova) and the track "Songs Of Love". This song was the theme music to the superb satirical (and occasionally scurrilous) British (and Irish) TV comedy series "Father Ted".

And tonight, I have been listening to "Something For The Week-End", "Becoming More Like Alfie", and "The Frog Princess" from the same album.

Had Tom Petty's new album on repeat for days now. Absolutely loving it. Currently listening to 'Shadow People' - real gem.
