Late Night, Early Morn

This is a vinyl rip from a record I bought when I was just 18 years old. I like it that, so young, I was listening to stuff like this.

I'm 42 now, love it even more.
Billie - she was gone at 44.

Billie Holiday - 'Good Morning Heartache' (1946)


  1. Oh my God 44 - it's another nail in my coffin. Billy though - lovely.

  2. At 18 resident on my turntable were Chet Baker and Miles Davis. At 39 it's been Kate Nash and Girls Aloud.

    Sounds like a mid life crisis to me.

  3. Sounds like at 39 you don't give a shit about being cool anymore.

  4. At about age 6 I apparently used to tug at my Mum's apron and shout "Fivers" whenever a particular track was played on the radio - that being Dave Brubeck's "Take Five". I'm sure I didn't rush out and buy the 45 but Mum or Dad must have. I still have it.

    Then at about 14 when I did start buying singles I had a soft spot for Middle Of The Road.

    Is that what you call doing a Simon?

  5. Brubeck at 5, that's pretty 'hep' dude.
