Not the Cheshire Regiment


Badge. Noun - a small piece of metal, plastic, or cloth bearing a design or words, typically worn to identify a person or to indicate membership of an organisation or support for a cause. 

'the Cheshire Regiment'
'they wore plastic name badges'

As ever, I'm indebted to the OED for their succinct definition. I strongly urge you to take no notice of those Urban Dictionary folk; what do they know, anyway?

Anyway, all this is, by way of a preamble, to tell you that Sunday Vinyl Session have got some shiny new badges to give away. If you'd like one, get in touch. Better still, come and see us, why don't you? On June 9th. we'll be talking about, and playing the Beach Boys' 1966 iconic album, Pet Sounds. It's a date.

  1. My, you do know how to pick 'em. When Brian sings, "take my hand and listen to my heart beat," then pleads, "listen, listen, listen," and then that cello comes in, well, let's just say it gets me every time.

    1. Brian, would you be kind enough to write a brief synopsis - 100 words will be fine - about why you feel it is such a great album, and I'll read it out at our Session? Thank you so much. J

    4. Thanks Brian. A most powerful piece of writing - I will gladly read it out on Sunday; synchronise watches and, as you say, you can be listening to it simultaneously in Seattle! Thank you again.

    1. He will, of course!

      You can too, CC; in fact, and this goes out to anyone who reads my blog, send me your details and, as long as postage is within the realms, I don't mind posting a few out.

  4. Another fantastic album and one I would love to hear again this way. Pity you are so far away but hope to make it along at some point.

    1. If you haven't already watched it I urge you to seek out the film Love and Mercy about Brian Wilson - Much of it is centred around the making of Pet Sounds.

    2. You are more than welcome Alyson - I'll keep a spare place on the top table just in case you ever get the urge to come south of the border.
