Bernelle on Brecht album added - each side as 1 single file. Download or listen via the player on the right.
Converting to Html 5 - including making media more device friendly > try the new player on the right and listen to the newly added single, "Kitty Rickets" (and the decidedly out-of-tune b-side "Things").
Recent acquisition: signed photo of Agnes, click the image below to see a large version. The signature is a little obscured, at the bottom.
