Had a sudden desire to listen to some of my Flamin’ Groovies albums including ‘Now’, ‘At Full Speed’ and ‘Supersnazz’ amongst others. Some of these now look surprisingly expensive on Amazon!

This, for reasons I can't really explain, has always been my favourite band name, ever.
Yet I have never heard a single thing by them, as far as I know.
I must do something about that.

New double album by the Churchfitters. Old friends. New recordings of some old favourites, with our chum Mr D Pegg making a guest appearance on mandolin.

Thanks for this. I’ve got 2 of the original albums on vinyl but this looks attractive for an upgrade  Smiley

On the subject of the Groovies, their most recent album Fantastic Plastic is well worth a punt. A little uneven like most of their albums but I reckon it's their most cohesive for a long, long time and with Chris Wilson back on board it sits nicely with the three Sire albums from the 70s.

Not so keen on their early stuff.  More MC5 than Byrds.

Encore by The Specials.
I wasnt sure how it would stack up with the original records but its a great cd and the greatest hits live cd is a belter.
Just bought this on Amazon for a tenner on the strength of your post Jim! Should arrive later today  Smiley  


I’ve done exactly the same!  Grin


After a couple more listenings over the weekend, i have to say i love it, so should you.


24 hour flash sale on Amazon: £4.99.  Can't so no at that price, surely?

Hadn't noticed the coincidence at the time, but I recently listened to the following two albums on consecutive days:

Mark Knopfler Down The Road Wherever
Ralph McTell Somewhere Down The Road

Both good in their own ways, but Ralph is still in front for me.

No probs.  I think they're making a concerted effort at topping the charts.

Early Pink Floyd - The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn and A Saucerful Of Secrets

In anticipation of attending Nick Mason's SOS show in Dallas and/or Houston this spring.

Lots of good stuff, lots of weird stuff, definitely worth a re-listen.  I was completely unfamiliar with the pre-Meddle PF.

Nick Mason's SOS was one of the finest gigs I attended in 2018, you'll have a great evening, enjoy !

First listen to "Sunshine Rock", the new album from Bob Mould (released today !)...sticking very much to the formula (loud guitars, razor sharp melodies), but when the formula is this magnificent, why mess with it ?

Bob rocks with more energy and intensity than some guys less than half his 58 years. If only the likes of Dave Grohl could come up with music a quarter as good as this...

Thanks for the heads up, didn't know there was a new album. Off to Rapture to order tomorrow!
