Katie Spencer does John Martyn with Alan Thomson and Spencer Cozens... https://katiespencerofficial.bandcamp.com/album/hurt-in-your-heart


Now that's interesting.  I'd rather it was a whole album though

Thereís a Who Sell Out deluxe reissue coming up with 112 songs. A hundred and twelve! I mean, even by the standards of the dozen or so they got right on the original LP, thatís got to be a lot of filler, hasnít it?

Mono & stereo versions of the album. Contemporary singles and B sides. Pete's demoes and a disc of tracks recorded betweeen completing the album and starting Tommy. Of the boxed sets being released that day it looks like a lot less filler than the John Lennon Plastic Ono Band box. A 10 track album expanded to more than 150!  Shocked

As a fan of both Cohen and First Aid Kit, I was really looking forward to hearing this.
I now have, and I donít think I ever want to hear it again!

I just think they tried too hard to make it ďdifferentĒ, some of the arrangements, especially the poems, seem, to me, a step too far.
Much of the beauty of Cohen is in his simplicity.
I have seen a fair number of good reviews, so donít let me put you off!

This looks tasty, notwithstanding the rather odd Fairport selections.

I shall get the updated book too.

That is (to my ears) a genuinely odd collection of not very mutually coherent tracks.

Well, I don't know how coherent it is because I have never heard the vast majority of the tracks, which is probably why it appeals to me and at £25 for 4 discs it is definitely worth a punt for me.

Very excited about this Third Ear Band re-release: https://www.cherryred.co.uk/product/third-ear-band-mosaics-the-albums-1969-1972-3cd-clamshell-box-set/?mc_cid=ae668406dd&mc_eid=cb3f319b33&fbclid=IwAR2YA6_WIZQjGJeVEfz64xrTLerI3UWuJNqnwP0QoTFxSGkkjn4ztyKgEX4

Very nice, but again, I have the material.  Cherry Red even reissued Alchemy on vinyl a few years ago.  Cool

Looks interesting.  I have the two New Electric Muse compilations from a few years back, and they are very good.  The book sounds interesting too.

This looks tempting.  A new Cherry Red comp. of Underground music.

It's a bloody flimsy thread to tie a collection together, I'd argue, but it's actually not a bad comp.

I finally took the time to leaf through the big "Sell Out" book and play with the extras in the box. The book contains two clever essays by Pete Townshend, plus several more by eyewitnesses to the 1967-68 scene reflected in "Sell Out" (e.g., pirate radio DJ, owner of the Speakeasy). It's got a track-by-track commentary and lyrics. It's also full of contemporary photos, not just of the band, but also of people and places referenced in the album. The extras include two posters, two vinyl 45s with an adapter (reproductions of the original "I Can See For Miles" and "Magic Bus" singles and sleeves), and other goodies reminiscent of the original "Live at Leeds" package. All in all, it's a fab package.

Apparently (if unexpectedly) Robert Plant and Alison Krauss are supposed to be recording a follow up to Raising Sand.
