    Some of his posts are great, both in terms of the writing and what he covers.

    My life in the audio retail and recording business from 1974 until I left the London rat race In 1981 might be a good read.

    picked up "Bass, Mids, Tops,: an oral history of soundsystem culture" the other day. There was a launch at Sounds of the Universe in Soho.
    Just dipped into it so far but looks good. Like Brian David Steven's portraits.

    Thanks for the heads up mentalp, that looks interesting. There is more weirdness to investigate in the strangeattractor "shoppe".

    Mullardman Moderately extreme...

    I saw John Anderson at the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester.. because a friend and Yes fan had a spare ticket. I was polite... but unimpressed. I went to the gents where two blokes were in hysterics and said. 'Sod this.... Pub...' I wished I could join them..

    Mrs Mull presented me with .The Complete Beatles Recording Sessions', by Mark Lewison. ISBN 9780600635611 as part of my Christmas stuff. Basically a diary of the Beatles Recording Sessions.

    I've only dipped in so far.. but it's a fascinating read. Not only about the Beatles.. but also about the ferment which surrounded the 'Merseybeat' explosion.. with the Beatles, The Fourmost, Gerry and the Pacemakers, Biily J Kramer etc. all queuing up to record at Abbey Rd. OK. Much of it is now seen as 'pop pap'. but at the time it represented a huge shift away from basically American Pretty Boys called Bobby. It was a major shift iPop music... and led to something much more profound by the Beatles.

    If you can read German, the German first edition of that book is worth seeking out. It has a fair bit of material expunged from later editions (and the English translation) following legal action.
