Finally listening to Utopian by Ian McNabb for the first time. It arrived about a week ago but I haven't felt in the right headspace to give it my full attention until now.

But as it's already happened just listen to the album and read what Alison and others were saying....  She's quite active on FB too.

Kings of the South Seas - "Franklin" - CD picked up for 99p in Oxfam - not sure how to describe this... heavy folk-rock?

Next up (another bargain - 50p from YMCA shop) - Billy Cobham: Tales from the Skeleton Coast  (a signed CD, no less!)

Runnin' Down A Dream - Lucinda Williams's new album of Tom Petty covers. I'm slowly getting into it. Strange at first hearing these songs with Lucinda's voice instead of Tom's.

And new ones from Teenage Fanclub and Del Amitri due soon. Based on the single wouldnt mind a listen to the new Rag n Bone Man either. Good job I didnt get the John Mayall box set!

My first listen to Utopian was severely interrupted so I couldn't really take it in. What I did notice was what a great sounding album it is. Gorgeous production and mastering. I will give it another go today. I also have pre order in for the new Del Amitri, along with Crowded House, John Hiatt, Dolenz Sings Nesmith and boxed sets from Lennon, The Who and CSNY, not forgetting a Big Big Train reissue as an introduction to their ouevre. So much music, so little time.

Currently I am on Dancing Days - Edward II, followed by JT by Steve Earle

Spent yesterday randomly picking out vinyl to spin, and was pleasantly surprised and reminded of the jazz stylings of Barbara Thompson (no relation) and her Paraphenalia, including the lovely drumming of the sadly-missed Jon Hiseman.

I like Barbara Thompson and was listening to Paraphernalia recently.  Have good memories of seeing her play live.
