I suppose I should say something about the release. Well, I will once I purchase it and have a chance to listen in a day or so. I must sheepishly admit that I may be getting some Archive series fatigue. These suckers drop overnight Friday night into Saturday morning Adelaide time... I usually get up the first Saturday morning of the month, quickly check out our forum here to see what's been released, then fire up the laptop to download the latest offering. Some months now, I find myself waiting a few days before doing so. There's no question I won't get it eventually, but I've now worked out that with family commitments etc I'm not going to listen to the whole thing straight away.. in fact, most shows take me a week or so to get through and then due to the sheer weight of the riches we now have, many of them stay repeat unlistened to.. to the point I will suddenly go, 'holy crap, when did this come out?' when scanning through what I have. I guess being a bit time poor in terms of being able to devote time to just music listening, I've found myself gravitating towards my favourite shows more and more. If I have an hour to spare, I'm more likely to whack on Stockholm 88, Leeds 2013, LA 99, LA 85, one of the December 1980 shows... the things that have become my utter favourites. I want instant gratification, dammit, not waiting to see if this latest version of, say, Darkness will suddenly become my favourite. I don't know, I probably haven't articulated this right... but it's almost like this series has become too much for me at times now. (Well, good luck telling that to the 18 year old version of me who was listening to 75-85 and reading the brilliant Blinded By The Light book and dreaming of hearing all this amazing music they were talking about... that your jaded 52 year old self wouldn't be grabbing this stuff at the first instance he could. 18 year old me was a wimpy nerd, but he'd slap 52 year old me around something fierce on this point).
