The bro-in-law emailed me and asked what I would like. The only thing I can think of is CDs, although I've gone blank.

My tastes in music is so eclectic:

Soul/funk

SKA

Rock/Grunge

Pop

Jazz

Big band swing

 

Suggestions away from the contemporary stuff.

Assuming you have managed to finally integrate your TV/Blu-ray/DVD sounds to your hi-fi... 

Oil City Confidential DVD. + Going Back Home DVD

Billie Holiday Ultimate Collection DVD

The Old Grey Whistle Test Vols 1 - 3 DVD

...just thought it might make a change to watch & listen too.

Have tons of Tri-ang/Hornby railway collecting dust in the loft. Nowhere to put it.
