Recent Acquisitions (Wednesday 2 May 2018)
Getting out and about seems an unattainable aspiration at the moment. The rain subsided by lunchtime but then there were parcels due. I did spend some time in the garden pulling up bindweed roots and other weeds.
A couple of young plants were delivered and a box set of the first Roxy Music album which additionally includes out-takes, BBC sessions, a DVD including a 5.1 mix of the album and a bulky hardback book. I've added a couple of other recent purchases to create this quick snap in the porch of a still life (and no, I won't be entering it in any challenges!).

Lozarhythm Of The Day:
Roxy Music - Re-make/Re-model (Peel Session) (recorded 4 January 1972, Maida Vale, for John Peel)
Roxy Music: Bryan Ferry (vocals, keyboards), Brian Eno (VCS3 synthesizer, tape effects, backing vocals), Andy Mackay (oboe, saxophone, backing vocals), David O'List (electric guitar), Graham Simpson (bass guitar), Paul Thompson (drums)
As usual John Peel was on the money, booking the band for a session over three months before they went into the studio to record their first album, which was in turn before they signed a recording contract.
Re-Make/Re-Model features solos by each member of the band and echoes various musical tropes, including The Beatles' Day Tripper, Duane Eddy's Peter Gunn and a saxophonic approximation of the Ride of the Valkyries.
The chorus of "CPL 593H" references the registration number of a car bearing a beautiful woman that Bryan Ferry had spotted.
