It’s always fun to round up the loot that found it’s way to me via the generosity of my loving family and friends. Here’s a look at the music/media-related stuff:
Blu-Ray / 2CD Set, and 2 magazines: The Rolling Stones – Voodoo Lounge Uncut (including 10 never-seen performances and 5 bonus tracks from New Jersey)!! Right on. I was super-excited about this one ‘cos I saw this tour in Taranna! Also, my sister said she was told that this was the last copy in London, so it must’ve been popular! And the magazines are an awesome tie-in too: The Rolling Stone Collectors’ 50th Anniversary Mick Jagger issue, and Music Spotlight’s Collectors’ Complete Story Of The Bad Boys Of Rock. Yessss!
A Couple Of Brilliant Books: The Beastie Boys Book (‘cos it’s what-cha want), and David McPherson’s The Legendary Horseshow Tavern, a sweet looking history of the historic landmark venue. Both are gonna be awesome!
From my KMA Brother James THANK YOU JAAAAAMES! came two glorious LPs: the Rheostatics Brave New Waves Sessions on limited blue vinyl! And Hawksley Workman’s gorgeous (Last Night We Were) The Delicious Wolves! So. Awesome.
And finally, some Blu-Rays (now that we have a TV!): Spaceballs (because hilarious), Festival Express (because how cool was that?!?!), Blade Runner: The Final Cut (because classic), and Blade Runner 2049 (because further to the story!).
Merry Christmas, indeed!
