After being totally blown away by his live performance on Tuesday, Outway Songster by Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne. Equally good on the CD and what a great voice.

Michael Chapman  :  Deal Gone Down  (Secret Records CD, 2015).

In spite of its all -star cast,  I haven't really clicked with this one. Apparently MC has made 50 albums so far.


I think I have most of those 50. Big influence on me and my guitar playing in late teens and the early albums have left a big connection for me. Listening now to the album I think it is gutsy album which is fine in my book. I really like the mix of acoustic and electric numbers and prefer this to the more produced albums that came later until the wonderful Life on the Ceiling became a daily listen whilst at uni.

John Martyn : Solid Air  (Island/ Abbey Road half -speed mastered LP, 2016).

Definitive, IMO, edition of a very fine album.

 Deep Dark Woods - Yarrow.

Jah Wobble and Momo "Maghrebi Jazz".  Reminiscent of some of the Dissidenten albums (eg Sahara Elektrik), but a little, er, jazzier.

Leige and Lief. Undoubtedly one of my favourite albums and it would consistently be in my top 5 albums of all time. But, I don't actually listen to it all that much. Same goes for WWDOOH.

Funnily enough I have been listening to the first three albums and I must say the same, I rarely listen to them all the way through these days, so it was almost like rediscovering them.

I found an album titled 'Take the Money and Run' by Graham Nash on Spotify but when I googled it I just found a song of that name rather than an album. I started playing it and was looking through the Crosby & Nash discog on Wiki and realised that it's the C&N album 'Wind on the Water' but in reverse order! Glad I found it as it's the one C&N studio album I don't know.

And they've also got 'Wind on the Water' under Crosby and Nash but with the titles 'The Two of Us' and 'Bittersweet' with the songs in random order. Never a dull moment on Spotify.  Smiley

That album came out on a label that since went bust, and as a consequence it's always showing up on various labels, most of them illegitimate, under various titles, so it's not just a Spotify thing.

I had that album many years ago, but sold it along with most of my vinyl collection.

I believe some, if not all (I haven't exhaustively checked) the tracks from Wind On The Water turn up on the 1991 Box Set CSN.

Four songs, I think.

Modern Studies - "Welcome Strangers" which is out today.  Rather lovely, I think.  I first got into the band through Rob St John who has done some great (if rather leftfield) stuff over the years.  Reviews tend to mention Pentangle and Fairport, which I don't really hear at all, but there is certainly a jazzy folkiness to some of their material.

Everything Is Going To Be Fine & Everything Is Not Going To Be Fine by Done.

Low key scratchy ambient and very good.

Can't find any trace of this on Google, not even an image, from the CD they appear to be a duo - Francis Gorni and Pete Scott.

Anyone have any further information?

I've tried to like this album but I just can't get past that flute going crazy on so many songs and rendering them unlistenable to my ears.
