    Strolling through my radio playlists, I know very well what‘s not on the list, but here we are, and though some changes are possible, this comes quite close to the final appearance that will include 30 records. The albums that are by now listed between 20 and 23 are so absolutely stunning that the records above do have to stand the test of time – til Nikolaus Day😉 (Not included are E.P.s and „albums“ that did not yet appear in a physical format.)

    Kein Eno in diesem Jahr!? Was ist denn hier los?!

    Die neue CD habe ich gerade heute bekommen, aber mein CD-Spieler hat den Geist aufgegeben, und ich muss erst einen neuen erwerben…

    Nr. 20 lief gestern den ganzen Abend in meiner Lieblingspizzeria auf meinen Wunsch hin. Ich hatte Geburtstag. Carla Bley und Lucinda sind die einzigen CDs in meinem Gepäck hier.
