Hot Rats, the 2008 issue remastered from Frank's analogue master tapes, for £1. Absolutely superb. Hearing details I've not noticed before.

A couple of cheap pre-order deals on Amazon.  A decent-looking Graham Nash compilation @ £5.99.  ‘Over the Years’ - a double cd, one of demos.  Also (feeling a little disloyal here) ‘What We Did on Our Saturday’ @ £9.99.  I think Amazon may be confusing this with a reissue of ‘What We Did on Our Holidays’.

Roger Daltrey - live at Carnegie Hall, celebrating the music of Pete Townshend & The Who - never heard of this, saw it for £1, decided to take a punt; RD + band (incl Rabbit Bundrick, Pino Palladino, Simon Phillips) and guests - Townshend, Entwistle, Linda Perry, Michael Kamen, David Sanborn... and the Chieftains!

And even more of a bargain - Tom Waits' 3CD set Orphans (Brawlers, Bawlers & Bastards) for just 75p!

Maybe it;ll be the regular price, but £19.18 for the upcoming Tom Petty  "An American Treasure" 4 disc "deluxe" box seems like a bargain to me.  Smiley

Good raid on the Reading Oxfam music shop today landed me:

Men they Couldn't Hang Silver Town and Alive Alive O
The Eighteenth Day of May self-titled album (which I seem to remember had a following on here some time back)
Oysterband Here I Stand

Could have bought more too, had I not restrained myself!

I had a feeling it was you who had championed them.  Haven't listened yet, but will do soon.

I bought it on David's recommendation, and didn't regret it, so thanks to you David. I loved the sound of it on first play, but it took a few plays to differentiate between the tracks - not surprising, as I hadn't heard any of it previously - and each play revealed more goodness. Definitely a grower.

Yup, enjoyed it on first listen, but I feel that it may need a few hearings to really deliver up the goods.  There are lots of influences I'm hearing already, not least early Fairport and Trees.

Love their album, sounds like a Joe Boyd production job. Successor bands asuch as Trimdon Grange Explosion & The Hanging Stars are well worth checking out too.  Smiley

Well it was released on Hannibal, which was his label, wasn't it?  Though I don't think his name is on it as producer.

Tunng - This Is etc. from local Oxfam. Quirky, different to any other folk/acoustic album I have and I think on balance very creative. Needs a few more listens for me to decide if it is very annoying or really quite endearing. I think one album will be enough despite glowing reviews on Amazon
