[biggest]PYGMALION[/biggest]

only my favourite album ever apart from my REAL favourite album ever. Now I have it in PHYSICAL FORMAT - 2 CDs (ALBUM PLUS DEMOS!!!!!!!!!!!) that I had shipped over from the UK for the measly sum of 20$. Cherry Red is reissuing a lot of its back catalog including entire discographies and prior to this Pygmalion was entirely out of print with the single CD only available through unofficial sources for unreasonable prices (fifty $? I think not). Now... now it's finally here, it's with me, and it's mine and I love it and we are going to run away together and be wed, Oh Pygmalion, I love you I love you I love you :) :) :)

Heyyyyy take that back, my favourite albums are consistent. Also I am totally not a hipster, I am too narrow minded and not experimental to be one.

ANYWAY, we went record shopping on Sunday. I emitted a series of squeaks and yelps and emerged with:

1. The Front - S/T - a band/album a shoegazer friend on Facebook brought to my attention. I'd only heard Sunshine Girl - a song that predates Smells Like Teen Spirit and uses the same riff. I loved it when I heard it and this album was buried right at the back of the last row of the (predominantly rubbish) 5$ section.

2. Mansun - Six - I have this album already but you have to have a physical copy for the album art. Also - MANSUN!!!!!!!!

3. Primitve Radio Gods - Rocket - SQUEAK WHAT?!?! excuse me while I sew this album on to my person.

4. Sharks Patrol These Waters - Various (The best of Volume Part II) - shoved into my hands by one infinitely more knowledgeable (and correct) boyfriend who told me I would like it. I had most of the songs already, so yes I WOULD like it. The booklet is great and I've been going through it while commuting. Just the sort of thing that screams my name and makes me painfully aware of the fact that I was born a few years to late and a few countries too far away.

strangely if I'd ever want to associate chillout with a season it would have been summer, not Christmas... :stars:

what's on that compilation, if I may ask?

I have about 10 Christmas "chillout" compilations. I associate summer with vibrant beats, so the chillout theme for Christmas sounds apt to me.

Here's one of them:

41BB4E7JJWL._SL500_AA300_.jpg

1. O Little Town of Bethlehem - Brooks, Phillip

2. The First Noel - Sandys, William

3. In the Bleak Mid-Winter - Traditional

4. Silent Night - Gruber, Franz

5. Once in Royal David's City - Traditional

6. White Christmas - Berlin, Irving

7. When a Child Is Born - Zacar, Fred Jay

8. Walking in the Air - Blake

9. The Conventry Carol - Traditional

10. Angels We Have Heard on High - Traditional

11. Ave Maria - Schubert, Franz

12. Away in a Manger - Traditional

13. How Far Is It to Bethlehem - Traditional

14. Joy to the World - Mason, Lowell

15. Blue Christmas - Hayes, Bill

16. It Came Upon a Midnight Clear - Sears, Edmund Hamil

17. O' Christmas Tree - Traditional

18. The Christmas Song - Torme, Mel

19. Carol of the Bells - Traditional

20. The First Noel - Sandys, William

I don't know what band actually interprets these, but it's gonna be in a Lounge/Easy Listening style, I imagine.

The Ultra-Lounge 3-cd compilation is better. I already have all 3 cds, but this one comes with a different cover. I might gift this one - just tell the person to open it up before Christmas:
