Abbey Road board game


Could this activity on my site's traffic log be related to October 5 being the closing date for offers for EMI? The occupants of the deckchairs on the Titanic were reading this article. They should have been reading this one.

First, I must just say that the two posts following this that I'm commenting on are wonderfully stimulating of thought. Time for me to re-read Foucault's Pendulum.

But on the EMI business, I just wanted to say that I got a real shock the morning I clicked on my link to the Naxos Music Library and found myself reading a notice that Naxos would henceforth be distributing the EMI catalogue: All of it, from Beatrice Harrison to Leif Ove Andnes. They estimate it will take them three months to add the whole lot to the Library. The Boult recordings added thus far have been enough to keep me occupied for a while, and some I never thought to hear, as also recordings of others. And, I must add, they are now also the distibutor for Virgin. There's significance in here somewhere, though I've not yet fathomed it Perhaps I'm too busy avidly listening.
