Title: Musical booty for Christmas
Post by: Jules Gray on December 27, 2018, 07:10:50 PM
Even though we had something of an "austerity Christmas" this year, I still received a couple of nice musical gifties:

Martin Carthy's first album
Funkadelic - One Nation Under a Groove (2 disc edition)

That's a nice little snapshot of my eclectic tastes right there, I think.

OK, your turn.

Jules

American Epic boxed set. Stanley Clarke boxed set.


Bought the American Epic set as a present for myself and thoroughly enjoying it thus far. This year was odd for me gift wise what with impending divorce but hey...on the positive side, it means no returns for things I already have!

That some stretch Jules but the early Carthy albums are fab, so much to enjoy. I have no experience of the Funkadelic album but from what I know of you, I'm sure will have equal but very different merit. I've picked up some great music from your posts. I hope you find a new doors opening for you soon. As for my new music it's Thea Gilmore's revised Strange Communion, Lucy Wise's Winter Sun alll (the way from Oz) and Steve Ashley One More Thing.

Not a sausage.

Given but not received. But then I didn't ask for anything.

I will be gifting myself the new Young 'Uns album and the Bruce on Broadway and No Nukes sets.

The Action - Shadows and Reflections box set.

Bob Stanley & Pete Wiggs present The State of the Union: the American Dream in crisis 1967-73

and

Low - Double Negative.  This last one was a present from me to my other half, but it's all too much for her.  She's a massive fan, but hasn't been one over by this one, and I'm the beneficiary.  She's wrong.  It's a genuine stone cold classic.

I was given Roger Daltrey's autobiography 'Thanks a Lot Mr Kibblewhite', which I'm looking forward to reading, and Rick Wakeman's 'Piano Odyssey' CD, which is really fine on first listen.

Wasn't aware of this item. Thanks for the heads-up...

15 minutes later, and after ordering this, I'm surprised and delighted at some very local connections to my old West Riding haunts. Thanks Will...

I requested the audiobook of this, which is read by Mr. Daltrey himself. Santa did not come through for me, however, so I shall download it from Audible as soon as I have finished listening to my other booty.

Sorry for double post but I also received Roger Daltrey’s book and also ‘Bring It On Home - Peter Grant, Led Zeppelin and Beyond: The Story of Rock’s Greatest Manager’ by Mark Blake which should prove an interesting read

I heard the author being interviewed on the Word podcast a few weeks back. If the book is half as entertaining it will be a good read.

No actual CDs or vinyl. I did get the DVD of Penda's Fen. Music related as it concerns Elgar and also gets a mention in Rob Young's Electric Eden. Not got round to watching it yet though.

I'm, only really familiar with "Firehouse Rock" & some singles. "Heart of the Congos" (both versions) has long been on the Desert Island list,, but don't know "Congo Ashanti" at all. No doubt treats to come when I get to them.  :)

"Inchpinchers".  For future reference, which would you recommend?

I only have three, but they're all good:

Fire House Rock (which you have)
Wild Suspense
Wailing Souls at Channel One
(a compilation of their earlier singles)

The Wood Brothers "One Drop of Truth" - These guys are fantastic, by the way. Their prior album, "The Muse," should be in everyone's collection.
Beatles White Album Deluxe Edition (on its way to me, I'm waiting with bated breath)

Likewise, my Mrs gave me a copy of the Daltrey book and from my stepson I got a book on the Beat poets.

I'll have to head on down to my local HMV and see what I can treat myself to, while it's still there.  :(

Do t-shirts count as ‘musical booty’? If so I was lucky to receive a Led Zeppelin t-shirt and also a Johnny Cash ‘man in black’ t-shirt. Both of which may make an appearance at Cropredy this year (along with my paint splatter shirt...yes like the one that Simon wore on stage at.Cropredy last year...see my pic on Simon’s Guitar thread  ;D
