This box set of the entire Ring Cycle by Wagner. 14 CDs, no waiting: £71 on Amazon.
To me: £6 at that music store opposite Notting Hill Arts Club.
In answer to my confused look, the storekeeper assured me that the recording and standard of playing was of the highest quality and that I just happened to be lucky to nab it when I did. I trusted him because he sounded Russian.
I also got a Dysrhythmia record for £7 and a bunch of Shostakovich's disks, including his 8th symphony played by the LSO and conducted by Andre fuckin' Previn for a FIVER.
And just in case some of you feel I'm getting all Niles Crane on you right now, I will be watching Highlander 4 tonight and pretending to sword fight with imaginary adversaries as I do so.
Tomorrow will be, as always, Jack Bauer day.
