You have good taste, Lady K! smile

Have you come across their "Long Black Veil" album? Not quite their usual stuff, features vocal and accompaniments by (amongst others) Marianne Faithfull, Mark Knopfler, Mick Jagger, Ry Cooder, Sinéad O'Connor, Sting, The Rolling Stones, Tom Jones, and Van Morrison. I like it...

Sometimes lost is where you need to be. Just because you don't know your direction doesn't mean you don't have one.

That's one I don't have, but it's definitely a must get. I like the way they've evolved over the years, but I still have a soft spot for their traditional stuff, such as "Boil the Breakfast Early" and "Round the House and Mind the Dresser." smile

I loved number 2 but cannot remember the name of the sumarine.
I think (with help from my wife) that 9 is Iolanthe.

Iolanthe it was. I leave you to arm-wrestle Mrs flotsam as to who gets the cigar grin

For number 2, think of a little bungalow or small hotel quite close to the beach called -------
