Last Favourite Thing Friday for the Year.

                                      
For this last Favourite Thing Friday  over at SHAY'S I am going to probably embarass myself and show my age. I have included a photo of my beautiful Frangipani which has just started to bloom it's lovely head off and smell divine for most of you who will go.....never heard of them!
My Favourite thing this week is that my very clever husband has managed to track down and secure a copy of both Albums on CD of a very favourite band of ours from 1977 (yes you heard correctly). We have literally been trying for about 20 years ever since we wore out the cassette tapes (if you don't know what they are you can google it) to replace them to no avail. The lovely man at the HMV store in the city who I think knows my husband(who by the way needs a 12 step program for CD & DVD purchasing) on a 1st name basis tracked them down for us...one has arrrived and is in our hot little hands and the other is on it's way. Yippee!! You couldn't just buy them back then at the record shop as they weren't mainstream music here. We had to drive to the Gold Coast to the Record Imports Shop to buy them. We were dedicated 'groovers'. No downloading them on I-tunes. We had many a fantastic night with friends listening to them over a glass of wine or 3 or maybe more. We thought we were so cooool. Maybe we weren't but the music was.
The band is called "Sanford Townsend" and the CD is "Duo-glide" the one still coming is "Smoke from a Distant Fire". Has anyone else heard of them??? Anyone??? Ok so no one is as old as me. Don't care this is my favourite thing for quite a while and will be for a while to come and it will certainly get played maybe even quite loudly this weekend.
Gotta love those shirts and the mo.....oh dear!
Frangipani's as promised....the smell of  a Queensland Summer and home to me.
Have a great weekend everyone. If you have to venture out in to the Kringle Madness, keep calm, keep breathing, keep your sense of humour and remember Goodwill toward all men...even the crazy one who runs over your heel with the trolley or pushes in front of you.
Blessings Michelle xx

  6. `Just ran it past the rock trivia guru in this house and he names the album when I said the band. We don't own any of their stuff though - although I think we must just about own everything else. ( So you are not alone)

  11. Oh, can I relate to having your favorite tape and several glasses of wine with friends. See, I'm old too. How great that you have been able to get them transferred to CD! Most of mine the tape player ate. Have not heard of this group though.
