    Claddagh's Choice, An Anthology of Irish Music (pre-recorded cassette released in 1984), bought on a flea market yesterday. Good, but not quite as nice music as the previous one, Best of Irish Ceili '74.

    PLayed a bunch of $0.25 pre-recorded 120uS chromes over the weekend, while working on some decks. Spectacular version of Vivaldi Four Seasons, Philips european recording, then soem various Mozart on DG, then switched to Steve Winwood "Roll with it" , and then some WIndam Hill samplers. I was rotating through 4 decks that hadn't seen some play time in a while.
