I’m a sucker for John Foxx vinyl, and this is my latest acquisition. It’s numbered as you can see, and very nicely made!
I’ve been listening to this show on and off since it was broadcast on Christmas day last year and it really is worth listening to. Not only are there some very interesting pieces that she’s included, but it gives you a rare insight into what sorts of music Laurie Anderson finds moving.
It’s easy enough to find on iPlayer Radio if you’re interested.
I’ve got the vinyl for this and now it’s on SoundCloud too. It’s a brilliant version. I love it!
I’m sure I’ve posted this before, but here it is again.
All of my field recordings on SoundCloud.
I hope to significantly add to them next year if I can.
I sort of do this every year, or at least try to anyway. It has become a little ritual with me. I leaf through the Wire’s top 50 to see how many (if any) of these albums I’ve heard and then try and find them all on Spotify so I can listen to them. Of course not all of them are ever on Spotify so it isn’t really a comprehensive system, but it does most of the job, and that’s ok.
This year is no different. I’ve actively listened to just a handful of these albums in the Wire’s top 50, and only own 1 of them I think. So I’ve added the lot, or at least the lot I can find, into a playlist and I’ll attempt to listen to the lot. Probably next year I’m thinking.
That’s the plan. That’s been the plan for a few years now, and it seems to work.
I should mention that I also got this windjammer too. I think that this is a bit of an essential too for real field recording. I feel properly set up now!
I also got the accessory kit for the h2n. It really is a bag of goodies, with a hard case, remote, tripod, handle, AC adapter and more. I think it is actually a little bit of a necessity really. Especially the hard case.
I’ve wanted a dedicated field recorder for ages, and this year I got one for Christmas. A lovely Zoom h2n. It is excellent and just the right size. I’ve just started to use it, but I can see a lot more field recording happening soon!
