I'd love a copy.

Your 2006 CD was referred to in our house for a while as "the proper music", as in "No! Put on the proper music, Mammy".

Hi Ian,

I'd like a copy, please. Of course, if it will be coming to a certain old-fashioned APA thing, I'll get one anyway via that route.

I may have to call future compilations "The Proper Music".
