I listened to Charlie Pretzlik and all I got was this Travelling Wilburys double album

180pxtraveling_wilburys_box_set_2 An ordinary day surfing FT.com, and suddenly Charlie Pretzlik is chuckling about Richard Branson and speaking lightly of the great Travelling Wilburys. Before you know it, I realise that I’ve long since thrown out my old pirated cassettes – along with the cassette recorder. After a brief pause (to battle the dark forces of hyperbolic discounting) I order the complete works. It arrived last week and it sounds… great.
And don’t forget that Richard Branson indirectly gave us Tubular Bells. Mock not, Mr Pretzlik, mock not.
