 	Dear Mary,
 		   glad to gather you're still out there, and in fact that 
anyone is, hurray! I have missed the list a bit, though I'd hardly have 
had the time this last year or so, things have been really busy.

 	The Magic Muscle album came to me from the US, in fact, Mary, so 
maybe it was yours, how many can there have been? It was signed by Huw 
Gower, in case that narrows it down. I have been toying with sending it to 
Rod Goodway to get him to sign it too, but I see he's closed up his old 
shop at the Aching Cellar and his and Adrian Shaw's second album still 
isn't out... so I'm not sure I'd get an answer. I should at least ask 
after him, though. Their first album was on my turntable for weeks and is 
still one of my favourite purchases of the last few years. What else can 
one think of a record on which the phrase `perpendicular aerodrome' is 
used? Yours all,

ObCD: Spirits Burning and Bridget Wishart - _Bloodlines_
