Guten Abend, bon soir, Wie geht's? Comment ca va? Do you feel good? CD2 is a dream I had or have and am guaranteed to have again now I have it on CD to play anytime night or day awake or asleep. So many nice times are incorporated into this CD2 and it induces laugh out loud moments by just being fun in its manipulation of the sounds rather than the samples themselves being of a comic nature. There are songs without words and instruments. Sally Bowles calls around, we have tea, she is so rude, or at least her friends are, she is funny and seductive, I like when she calls, it is always pleasant and inspiring too. She makes me remember I forget most of my dreams, I am usually left with just a feeling, the same for this CD2 and I cannot wait to go back again into it, but should I become too familiar and jaded, what then, how often is it OK to visit without it over staying its welcome. Time will indeed tell, but by then it will be too late. CD1 is still waiting on a shelf with plants and books and "qXn94..." and some string and a safety pin and the compulsory dust and an upturned still fly, unfly if you will. There is also a fresh cutting off a money plant that I do not believe will make it through the summer, what is it, little water and out of direct sun light or more stop playing noise to it too loud or digress it occasionally but not rarely. CD2 is a perfect companion for the last three NWW&GB albums, like a Sally Bowels, everyone is wearing trumpets but only she has a levity chicken and levitating eggs full of audiences all shakin shakin rat a tat all looking a tat for a parade to join and mambo through the centre perpendicular curling arched back in on oneself spiral at tat. This CD2 has stand out tracks that I remember while watching Top of the Pops as a kid in the 70’s and 80’s and wishing they were played back then and ever since dreaming and now I am listening to those dreams while awake years later and released years later all this now coming together in stuff. Neat. Recommended listening indeed. Good-buy everybody, bye now.
