More fool me, I should have stolen it first (i.e. downloaded, like I normally do) then I’d have known not to buy it. But I rusted EC not to put out dispensable garbage. My fault. In future I will *always* download albums before I buy them (and I do buy them if I like them – as I did for the Beach Boys album).I bought Eliza Carthy’s new album last week.
So now the only people I will buy *without* listening first are Amanda Palmer and Kristen Hersh – both of whom encourage free downloads.
