Credit Crunch Cloud has Silver Lining

To a well-known supermarket (not T*sco, obviously)  with ‘er indoors to purchase such Christmas baubles as we require for our frugal Winterval celebration. Amongst the seasonal tat, I discover a CD of Ella Fitzgerald for one of your English pounds, or Euros, as we now call them. A quid! I spent £2.95 on a very indifferent coffee at Piccadilly station last week. For a third of that, I get Ella with Satchmo, the Inkspots, Louis Jordan and others singing a great collection of classic tunes. I can’t think of anything for a pound that would give me greater pleasure.

  1. I am impressed by your shopping prowess, especially at this time of year. I, for one, have many CDs of the divine Ella, mostly the songbook collections. But were I to obtain one for a pound, it would make the pleasure all the sweeter.

    Happy holidays


  2. Merci, Madame- though I have to say that MDF connotes medium density fibreboard in these parts: the standard component of any Ikea or similar build-it-yourself furniture.
    The songbook collections are, of course, sublime, and I’m sure I have most of these tracks elsewhere, but it’s a fine collection for a pound.
    Joyeux Noel to you and yours.

  3. Mack the Knife may well be the subject of another post. Not featured on this collection, though very much featured elsewhere chez Topsyturvydom. You need a tree-wrangler!
