I rarely follow up ads on Facebook, but did at the end of last week for an ad for classic rock albums from Rock Review records at £3.99 each, and ended up buying the following, all at that price:
Supertramp – Breakfast In America (2010 Remastered CD)
Barclay James Harvest – XII (2003 Remastered CD with Bonus Tracks)
Def Leppard – Pyromania: Deluxe Edition (Double-CD Album)
Camel – Breathless (CD)
Eric Clapton – Backless (2016 Reissue on CD)
Mike Oldfield – Incantations (CD)

Must admit to having very few Macca studio albums in my collection so I thought I'd make a couple of purchases off eBay including 'Flowers in the Dirt' which arrived today. It's the 2017 remastered edition with a bonus disc of demos. I chose that one as I saw him at Wembley on his 89/90 world tour and the set list included a few numbers from that album.

There's a Fairport connection in that DM drummed on one track though the main guest on the album was Elvis Costello. Trevor Horn and David Gilmour are also in the credits.

A friend and I hustled our way backstage after an R.E.M. gig in 1985. We interviewed Michael Stipe for our college newspaper, and then took him out for a curry. It was Hallowe'en and Michael gave me the mask he had been wearing, although I sadly lost that.

After eating (Michael had dahl and lots of coffee), we walked him back to his hotel. When we shook hands to say goodbye, he told me that my handshake was too limp, and proceeded to teach me how to give a firm handshake, and tell me how important that was.

I felt sure that was leading up to the old “That’s me in the Korma” joke!


Or was Jules trying to curry favour with the REM singer.  Grin

I've been listening out for the folk(y) songs played over the closing credits - "Blackleg Miner" etc.

In this week's edition of the Radio Times, a reader has asked who is singing and is it available.

It turns out it's the Ian Campbell Folk Group - songs from their 1965 LP "Coaldust Ballads".  Line-up: Ian C, Lorna C, Brian Clark, John Dunkerley and Swarb.  All tracks can be found on YouTube...




Thanks for this…. Great music, dear old Swarb!
