Virgin places don't mean a thing to people who never bring their hearts along.

They did in Glasgow last night to rather spectacular effect!!   Terrific band, and very sad that they are splitting up.

Anyone else think that 'Moving' sounded like the track Dogs, from the album Animals by Pink Floyd?

I don't know if (m)any of you are aware, but that songs was primarily written by someone often described as 'the creative genius of Pink Floyd, Roger Waters'.  I'm not sure if I've mentioned that next May... ;)

I used to that sort of stuff In Virgin Records in Union St, Swansea.  A Virgin shop would probably take up all of Union St these days if it could evict the mobile and sports shops.  We had all the 'heads' working there and they knew their music. 

One Saturday in about '75 after going through the albums from AArdvark to ZZ top, I returned to 'S'. I bought Can't buy a Thrill on the basis of remembering hearing Reelin on a Saturday radio show with Johnny Walker, and a fine set of cover notes (which these days without my glasses on...) Urban sturm and drang if I remember, was one phrase.

Magnificent times, bying music purely on (quality) Music mag reviews and getting it right. 
I recall in the run up to one Christmas an old biddy (prob the same age then as I am now!) giving the guy in front of the till a list of albums she needed and clearly not having a clue what she was after, and him jumping over the counter and getting all the stuff for her.  None of this 'It's over there in our Rock 'n' Ska (Dan Reference alert.) section.

Oh well, tomorrow it's back to the suit and tie and being a 'manager' in the Civil Service.

Lost innocence or what?

But got my annual leave booked in for next May.  Did I mention...
