SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

I suspected that the rush of new posts over the last week or so was too good to be true, and so it has proved. There has been some very bad family news this morning; I'm not going to go into the details here, but suffice to say that it is bad enough to warrant suspension of this blog until further notice. There's no point in either of us writing about old albums here if we're upset, and so until such time as matters are sorted out it is best that we take a break. There's far too much to do as it is.

Please note that this does not mark the end of Then Play Long; it is my hope, and I know also Lena's hope, that we can return to this blog at some point. However, it would be bogus and hypocritical to do any more writing here at this stage under the pretence that everything is going well. When there are new updates we will announce them on Twitter, so please keep an eye on the blog for now and don't take it off your bloglist.

Many thanks to the many readers, regular and new, who have helped sustain this blog since August 2008. We will be back - but right now we don't know when.
