Listening to a home made compilation which includes Steely Dan, Curved Air, Eagles, Heads Hands and Feet, early ELO (10538 Overture) Oasis, Santana and Magna Carta.


"Heads Hands and Feet".   :oHow on earth did I as a child of the Sixties and still in may respects stuck in the music of the seventies have missed such a group.  Spotify has been an education and thank you for mentioning the group in amongst other greats that made me look into the group not recognised.

Andy

Love Heads, Hands and Feet. 'Song for Suzie' is an absolute gem - and Albert Lee was (and still is) a phenomenal guitarist. Plus, of course, the curiosity of having Chas Hodges, from Chas 'n Dave, playing bass.

Having watched the Eric Clapton - Life in 12 Bars documentary last night, the only thing I could listen to this afternoon was Layla and other assorted love songs

Lucy Ward - Pretty Warnings. An impulse buy when flicking through the folk section in Rapture after a some comments on TAW suggested she was worth getting know. Wow, trying to work but keep getting dragged into the songs, this could be a long evening! Quite an extraordinary album.

All four of her albums are well worth investigating, but to appreciate her full talents you really have to see her live. She takes things to a whole other level, her command of comedy is something only hinted at on her albums.
I keep telling her that she should release a live album!

Seconded...especially when the solo comes in. Said it before and I'll say it again. There are millions of guitarists out there, but that general tone or sound Dan gets out of his on both electric and acoustic is always recognizable, even way back when he was playing with Alan Stivell. I love his playing and always will, and that even goes for some of the new agey noodling he has done at times.

What a lovely playlist - I'd add Dennis Wilson's sublime Forever. Might even use evil Sp****y and give that selection a go later myself...

Here it's Judy's superb Earth Is Sleeping, and by way of contrast Our Future In Space : today's freshly-arrived and very rocking new waxing from Ian McNabb...

My copy arrived today. Decided to go for the vinyl version as I felt he art work deserved the larger format.
The beauty of the cover is matched by the beauty of the music within.

Ummagumma, the live section. By heck, the Floyd were a tremendous live band then... Nearly 50 years ago!

Only because nothing quite fitted the mood. No slight on the album. You Need A Mess of Help... and Marcella would both be on my list of essential Beach Boys tracks.

But the best track on that album would have fit the mood perfectly - All This Is That.  Sublime.

Yes, you are probably right. The original playlist was time constrained to fit on a single CD. All This Is That probably hadn't registered with me strongly at the time as I had only just completed my Beach Boys library so something had to get cut. No reason not to include it in the digital playlist though.

Meanwhile, this morning I am listening to In The Dark by Grateful Dead. Not the diehards' favourite I know but I think it is a really fine, melodic, well written album and perfect for a sunny summer day, despite the darkness of some of the lyrics.

At some point over the weekend I will be making time for Our Future In Space, Ian McNabb's newie which dropped through my letter box yesterday.

I too have a very large soft spot for In the Dark.  There's *an* argument to be made for it being one of the most successful studio albums...

Here I'm listening to Bennett Wilson Poole's debut in anticipation of seeing them in Launceston on the 18th.  A really old fashioned album, but in a good way.  There's a couple of tracks that fit just the wrong side of the 'mawkish' line for me, but the vast majority are outstanding, and there's at least 3 stone cold classics.  Highly recommended.  It's on Spotify if anyone wants a preview...

This rather appropriate for just now... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2mKpqC138l4
