Deep Purple - Made In Japan

The band made a tour of Japan in 1972 that resulted in this live album. Originally intended as a Japan-only release, its worldwide release made it an instant hit. It remains one of rock music's most popular and highest selling live-concert recordings(wikipedia). Link in comments.

Biggles Flies North - 1997

This was book 18 in the Biggles saga and was written in 1939. Michael Palin recorded the audiobook in 1997 and did a fine job. I believe he previously portrayed Biggles in Monty Python's Flying Circus with reference to BIGGLES FLIES UNDONE. Link in comments.
