On Hampstead Road, Camden, I spied a little lost Lamb on the pavement. It is Lamb’s self-titled 1996 debut album. In their review of this release, Rolling Stone magazine pronounced that “electronica is a worthy heir to more time-tested musical genres – and not just a fluke of computer literacy”. An important part of the CD is missing. Unlikely to play.
What better way to see in the New Year than with an abandoned CD? Dabira (Do Wonder) is an album of Nigerian gospel music by Bunmi Akinnaanu a.k.a. Omije Ojumi. This is yet another disc from Stanhope Street, by far the most bountiful source of abandoned CDs. Unlikely to play.
