Calne (Wednesday 11th September 2019)
There's nothing like not having a car to make one want to drive off somewhere. I had to content myself with a mooch around Castlefields Park, where of course I got barked at at close range by a dog sprawled across the footpath, and of course was told not to worry as he wouldn't bite. I couldn't care less, I just hate being barked at, especially in a nature reserve where you go for peace and quiet.
This is a short watered section of the Wilts and Berks, probably blipped many times before. To avoid having to walk back past the supine canine I managed to cross the canal on this makeshift crossing, noticing this watermint as I did so.

Lozarhythm Of The Day:
Caravan - Honest I Did!/Disassociation /100% Proof (New Mix)(recorded September 1970, Decca Studios, West Hampstead; overdubs at AIR London, 9 January 1971)
This is to be found as a bonus track on the CD re-issue of Caravan's most finely thought of album, In The Land Of Grey And Pink, and forms the concluding section of Nine Feet Underground, Dave Sinclair's magnum opus that filled the second side of the vinyl album. The details in the notes are incorrect, not mentioning the first part of the medley and claiming it was all recorded at AIR, when in fact only Jimmy Hastings' lovely flute work was added to the earlier take. The overdub wasn't used on the album version. The vocal on Disassociation is by Richard Sinclair, who presumably wrote the lyric. I'm working through a box set of their Decca and Deram albums at present.
