This, thanks to Mr Tangled Parrot in Carmarthen.  Anybody know anything about the players.  It sounds great but I know nowt about it (or them).

Josephine Foster - Blood Rushing possibly a marmite act, and Jane Weaver Modern Cosmology. I have been listening to these a lot recently. Not necessarily easy listening but they are to me.

Listening to Oly Ralfe's piano album, Notes From Another Sea. It's lovely, and quite different from Ralfe Band.

Also listening to Bare by Rosie Carney. A fine Anglo-Irish singer-songwriter who I seem to have discovered by accident - no idea how I came by her music, but it's very nice.

Cheers

Fancied something a bit funky today so I'm starting with Jamiroquai - Emergency on Planet Earth and will have a listen to his last album Automaton after that.

He might be an insufferable bore but I love his music  Cheesy

Currently rocking out to one of the best live albums ever IMHO (Live & Dangerous excepted- and yes I know all about the overdubs etc) and that is ‘Party on the Moor’ by Runrig

Various Scottish folkies including Kaela Rowan, Jenny Sturgeon and Ewan McLennan.

Bob Buchan, who has been doing PR for them and countless others north of the border, is retiring so I've put together a mix which is up on my Mixcloud page. He did 26 years with Warner Music before setting up his own PR business which he's been running for the last 17 years.

Needed music to get me through an entire day of housework (visitors staying for the weekend so I need to make the house liveable.  Grin). Somehow that led me to Willie Nelson and Ray Charles. Not together. Career spanning compilations in each case.

Next up though, now I can actually pay attention, will be the new album from The Long Ryders. The first one for 30 years. I'm a little bit excited.

I've just finished my first play through and it's terrific. Early days yet, but first impressions are that it's as strong as anything they've done previously. Really looking forward to the tour, and with the added bonus of the wonderful Hanging Stars supporting as well.

It is indeed, on first listen, really splendid. Mellower than of yore, catchy as hell and deeply Gram Parsons/Byrdsian.

This will get repeated plays.

To be honest I was expecting a pretty-strong-but-not-as-good-as-the-old-stuff typical comeback album, but it's way better than that. What the Eagle Sees has become a bit of an earworm for me already, I can see it becoming a real tour-de-force live.
