I had a great day on Saturday. I went to Virgin (not-so-mega) store in
downtown Kingston (Surrey, England) to see if I could get a copy of
Illuminate (HMV only had Western Family...).

I not only found two copies of Illuminate, but also a copy of
Fishcoteque! Saturday was indeed a great day.

When you get a copy of Illuminate, you *may* find that there are two
tracks which have Blue Aeroplanes ``inspired'' guitar. If you take out
the vocals from ``When Eno Sings'' and ``Land'' you have classic Blue
Aeroplanes guitar - I proceeded to scan through my Blue Aeroplanes
CD's and ``Aeroplane Blues'' seemed to be the track that I was
thinking of when listening to ``When Eno Sings''.

I think Illuminate is great - no bad tracks yet, and ``When Eno
Sings'' is brilliant. It could/should be a hit in any lifetime.

Nice touch with the mailing list and WWW address on the sleeve.
