I never miscue a record. I am punctual, well-prepared, and dislike clutter. Outgoing and helpful, I'm always appropriately dressed. I do not behave erratically and have excellent penmanship. My CD's never skip, and I am in good health. I like all the notes, in any order.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 5/19/17 12:35pm Cliff (temporarily not) in Prague:

While I only know of him from Cabaret Voltaire...

"Christopher Richard Watson (born 10 December 1952 in Sheffield[1]) is an English musician and sound recordist specialising in natural history. He was a founding member of the musical group Cabaret Voltaire, and Watson's work as a wildlife sound recordist has covered television documentaries and experimental musical collaborations."

@sphere - how do you like the new JLin? I love FWD music but have a hard time enjoying footwork
  Fri. 5/19/17 2:40pm Mark Williams:

@Bryce - I thought the Smithsonian ended up with a good chunk of it. That Dutch label SRP (?) put out a bunch of stuff. I think that's what Ugandan court music you played was from. The odd one to contemplate is the recordings he made from the Congo in the early '50s, at which the Hutus and Tutsis gathered to have a council of sorts around the king.
Avatar Fri. 5/19/17 2:47pm Bryce:

yeah, that's just crazy. SWP was nice enough to send FMU a few of those CDs back in the late 90s. wish we had more!

oh, the smithsonian got some of his stuff? for some reason, i thought it was tucked in south africa.
