Now if @Elk could work his magic to change the name to Mark 10 then all would be well in the best of all possible worlds!

New on Qobuz. HR. This has been posted several times recently. It is outside my normal remit but I am a true Briton and so I saluted the flag and started listening. All pieces I was once familiar with; the Vaughan Williams in particular, since ‘Thomas Tallis’ was the only classical album my parents possessed and I listened to it often as a boy, was pure nostalgia. It was also a ground breaking piece when it was first played. The sound was OK but not exceptional. Obviously I found the album very enjoyable.

@Dirk and there was i, thinking Chris was quoting The Shamen :slight_smile:

(The Shamen were of course quite popular in the 1700s - this was before their House music run of hits, so they were free to explore steam driven samplers without fear of being labelled a “sell-out”).
