1001 Albums #56

Bert Jansch self-titled album Bert Jansch is one I have never heard of. I have never heard of Bert Jansch either. Perhaps it has to do with him singing folk music and being from Scotland.

London – T.A.R.D.I.S.

Another day in London, but this day had one aim, to see the T.A.R.D.I.S. from Doctor Who. i read there was one in front of Earl’s Court Station, but i was worried that it might not be there now, since some information on the internet can be inaccurate. It was there! i am a big […]
