Blood On The Tracks - Test Pressing RSD release - Bob Dylan

Keen followers of the internet will be aware that this release has been something of a disaster with mltiple manufacturing issues.

Mine arrived this morning from Spain. It looks like hell and is slightly warped but it plays and sounds good. Mostly. There is a deep scratch on Simple Twist of Fate which causes it to jump. But what can you do? At least I only paid the retail price (more or less) and not the fortune that these are going for elsewhere.

Stumbled upon this thread this morning whilst I was looking for a different one. As I have some Nils chatter today it seemed appropriate.

I am given to understand that his new album, made with pretty much his 70s band and featuring several co-writes with Lou Reed from their 1979 collaboration, will be dropping through my letterbox today.

I tried to purchase the album from the Park Records site. But every time I got to the checkout it kept saying I needed to put in a password. Each time I did this it said it didn't recognise it, so I changed it and it still didn't work. I emailed park Records and instead of doing something about it they said I could buy the CD by ringing them up, I think I'll wait until it's more widely available.

Having seen the Unthhanks a few times I am finding them all a bit serious and ‘ academic, reverential’. A little too arty, too self aware.
A distinct lack of fun ....but it’s probably me....

Annoyingly, work is getting in the way of this.  I have a spare ticket (PDF) if anyone is looking for one (Cardiff Tramshed next Tuesday) - it's sold out.

The "Nature" e.p. by Modern Nature.  I mean how could I not do so after this in Shindig:

"...the Nature e.p. which is built around the Fairport meets Neu of the title track and reaches a stunning conclusion on the track 'Supernature', a magical brew of hypnotic folk and spiritual jazz, which builds  and pulses over its 11 minutes and 48 seconds before ending in a free-jazz clatter that leaves you breathless with wonder."

And that doesn't even mention the rather decent cover of Blackwaterside.  

Bloody marvellous.  It's on Spotify.

Robin Trower, last night, ACL Live.

The crowd filled the lower level, about 900 seats, the small Mezz was 2/3 full and the balcony was sparsely populated. I think he sold about 1,200 out of 2,700 available tickets, which is not terrible for this venue on a Wednesday night in Austin.  From the stage, I'm sure all he could see was a sea of happy faces on the floor.

He put on a great show.  He followed his usual pattern - most of Bridge of Sighs plus "Daydream" (from Twice Removed From Yesterday) "For Earth Below" (from FEB), "Somebody Calling" (from my personal favorite, In City Dreams), nothing from Long Misty Days, Caravan to Midnight or Victims of the Fury, or his 80's/90's albums, and a bunch of songs from his latest album. I was particularly impressed by his current singer/bassist, whose name I can't find on the Internets.  The vocal mix was really good last night, so for the first time I was able to hear his powerful voice clearly.  He acquitted himself quite well on the numbers that James Dewar originally sang.

Robin himself sang most of the new songs, and it left me wondering why he didn't start singing in public a long time ago.  Altogether Fab.

Mott the Hoople at Shepherds Bush Empire on Saturday 27th April.  We've got a spare ticket which it would be nice to sell.  The last time I sold a spare ticket was via eBay but I don't think that is allowed any more  Huh Can anyone recommend a ticket site (preferably not connected to Ticketmaster).  Thanks.
