    If you want to get rid of unwanted guests, or those who have outstayed their welcome, then just put on 'Phaedra' by Tangerine Dream. It's very effective!

    Definitely agree with your choice Steve. On a slightly different tack and a Ferry solo effort I really rate Another Time Another Place, an album of covers but treated with the Ferry magic.

    I thought that Phaedra was one of their finest albums

    I don't think I've heard that. Tangerine Dream is a band that passed me by. But I'll give some a listen when I'm done with the Freddie McGregor stuff I'm streaming at the moment.
    Pining for the fjords? What kind of talk is that? And why did he fall flat on his back the minute I got him home?

    Brian Eno 'Thursday Afternoon' is an absolute ambient classic but make sure you are alone when you play it or at least with someone who understands your state of mind.

    I didn't say it wasn't. What I did say was playing it is very effective at getting rid of unwanted guests. Another one might be Terry Riley's 'In C' or Stockhausen's 'Stimmung', though I haven't tried those.

    By the way I do like 'Phaedra' and will often play it at the end of an evening's listening session before I go to bed.

    I do like his ambient work, but it's not for everyone - I'm sure it would bore the hell out of my partner

    When I played "My Life in the Bush of Ghosts', Mrs. P certainly wasn't impressed. But then she favours music with singing, and when one such track came on (singer may be Lebanese or something), she said it sounded like a cat being strangled. She feels the same about a Transglobal Underground album I have.

    Perhaps the best way to rid yourself of overstayers would be the direct approach - changing into your jammies, then switching off the lights and going to bed should do the trick.

    I have that one as well - and have to say I'm not that impressed. But maybe I should give it another spin.

    Well I don't wear 'jammies', and as I have said, I do sometimes play 'Phaedra' before I go to bed.
