Tríona....





The above purchase will mean absolutely nothing to 99.999% of the people on the planet and I do not normally post vinyl purchases [for some reason?] but this one is just a little different. I have been away for a few days and I came across a remarkable book and music shop in a most unexpected place. Unfortunately I did not have a lot of time to browse the sizeable vinyl collection on sale but it is a place which I will definitely return to for much more in depth investigation. Anyway the above was one of those personal WOW moments when one is idly skimming through the shelves or a bin. Tríona ní Dhomhnaill was a very talented traditional Irish singer who played a harpsichord and was very prominent in the 1970’s folk scene here in Ireland. She had a terrific and somewhat unusual voice which I particularly liked. She emigrated to the US and I lost contact with her music making as a result. Finding the LP was delightful and took me back a very long way to another place and time, as music has the power to do.



That's cool. Unexpected pleasures can often be the most special ones. :) And you've still the bonus of revisiting to explore the trove.  8)
The sight of her in a blue gingham dress could break your heart, but the way she looked out of the dress could make the same heart explode.

I’ve made quite a haul over the past week:








Almost all of them personal favourites of mine.  ???

I must admit that I do not know the music of David Sylvian although I know of him. Where would be a good place to start? I will check out YouTube also.
