28/01/14: "HP & Phil Stone", Camden High Street

A grim pile of Camden rubbish included a crisp packet and what appears to be "talking book" versions of J.K. Rowling's popular children's adventure stories burned to four Maxell discs.

25/01/14: Granville Road, Finchley, CD remains

Another "radically distressed" find. It would take a lot of work to get this one playing again.

19/01/14: Finchley CD remains

Is it possible that an aggressive cyclist took cruel delight in riding over this disc again and again? Important parts of the CD had vanished completely, either removed from the scene or ground down into invisible dust. Unlikely to play.

How does a CD find its way into a hedge in a quiet North London street?

11/01/14: "MP3 Music", Finchley

One of the few abandoned CDs that might still have been playable. "MP3 Music" is a fairly broad title and gives few clues about the kinds of delights burned onto this Imation disc. Can't decipher the other writing, alas.

03/01/14: "The Essence of Billie Holiday" (disc one), near Warren Street

Also visible in the January puddle: a small clump of grass and the reflection of your careless photographer. No sign of disc two. Unlikely to play.
