Best of Jim Croce- fantastic poolside listening, and yet another talent taken way before his time...

The newly remastered release of Tim Blake's "New Jerusalem" album. Top-notch synth'n'sequencer music - once you get past the somewhat mannered vocals.

Derek and the Dominos Live At The Fillmore kept me company yesterday most of the way home from Norwich, after dropping my daughter back at Uni.

Finished the journey off with Afro-Celt Sound System Sound Magic, Vol 1

Lots of Al Stewart CDs. I have lots. Even more than one version of some. I always liked his stuff, and it's great to revisit.

For the first time in years and years(decades?) The Joshua Tree by U2. I had forgotten quite how monstrously good it is and they were.

I used to have that on cassette. Sadly, I haven't heard it in years either.

It's a long time since I've listened to the whole album, but most of the tracks are on my in-car mix memory stick - there isn't much 'filler' on the album

The morning started with Cara Dillon After the Morning, and then took a proggy turn, with Twelfth Night's Art and Illusion - Definitive Edition and now Steve Hackett The Tokyo Tapes.

A live Decemberists recording. I'd like to see them live - their shows sound like they are a lot of fun.

Possibly their best in my opinion with the Boy with the Arab Strap a close second.

It's my first B&S album, and I was told by fans it was very good. First impression is I like the folky feel to it, and some of the arrangements. It's nice, but there are no stand out melodies, for me.
