#1300 Tortoise – Millions Now Living Will Never Die

This is the CD nestling next door but one from the previous randometer pick, Ms Torrini, but is about as far as you can get in contrast sound wise. Like many of my CDs it has been stored in boxes and hidden on shelves for a long time and playing it for this review was … Continue reading #1300 Tortoise – Millions Now Living Will Never Die

#967 Pink Floyd – Wish You Were Here

#99 The Beatles – Abbey Road
