This could be interesting – an expanded edition of the Affinity album
https://www.cherryred.co.uk/product/affinity-affinity-4cd-remastered-expanded-box-set/


Angel Air put out almost all of this stuff a few years back, so there's not really a lot we haven't heard before, but what the hell I'm in for it.  Grin


Pretty much what I was thinking . I took out my copy of Affinity: Affinity (Angel Air, 2002) for a listen last night. It's well bolstered with bonus stuff, and there was another disc of unreleased material  also from Angel Air, iirc.
Cherry Red seem to do this sort of thing well, on the whole.

Mine turned up a couple of days ago and I was listening last night. Need to listen again but it sounds like a strong set. I have long been a fan of The Korgis and James Warren in general. To me this is reminiscent of a peak period 10cc album, which is high praise indeed.

That is good news.  He plays fairly regularly in Bridport, doesn't he?

Yes he lives in Bridport  , did you get to see him play when you lived here?   The album is to celebrate 50 years of Stackridge - unbelievable. I think apart from Keith Gemmell they are all still around even their original manager Mike Tobin who is in his 80s now.

Just the once, yes.  I'll be honest and say it wasn't really my thing, but very nice to see him nonetheless.  Definitely looking forward to the compilation.

His solo stuff is very different ,  lacks the quirkiness  and humour of the Stackridge  I much prefer his Stackridge output

My favorite band on Earth. As I've said here before, in addition to their scores of incredible originals, Los Lobos have recorded and/or performed many of the best covers I've heard (taking "La Bamba" to number one in the process). Politician (Cream), Don't Keep Me Wonderin' (Allmans), What's Goin' On (Marvin Gaye), Bertha (Grateful Dead), Shoot Out The Lights (an obscure English songwriter), I Wanna Be Like You (from the Jungle Book), and now Sail On, Sailor.

I'm always wary of the covers album.  It usually means inspiration has dried up.  Can anyone think of an essential covers album?

I'm wary of the covers album for the same reasons.
However, one of my favourites is The Wonderful World Of The Wondermints - currently out of print but available from Discogs from £4.80. Featuring entertaining covers of The Porpoise Song, Skyman, Arnold Layne, Guess I'm Dumb, etc., and a superb alt-rock version of Knowing Me, Knowing You (no "A-ha's" whatsoever), it's no wonder Brian Wilson said "If I'd had these guys in 1967 I would've taken Smile on the road".

Here's a Brian Wilson/Wondermints story - I talked to a fellow at a Pet Sounds 50th show who was carrying a BW-autographed copy of the Wonderful World... He said he waved the LP at Brian during the soundcheck, and Brian said "I don't sign things." The guy explained it wasn't a Beach Boys LP and started singing the praises of the Wondermints. BW was intrigued, and a stagehand retrieved the LP for BW to autograph before the show. So the guy has a one-of-a-kind Wondermints LP autographed by Brian Wilson, who's not on the album.

For about fifteen minutes the Wondermints might just have been the best band on the planet.  Baby Lemonade run them pretty damn close at times though....and one (sort of) became the Beach Boys, and the other Love.  It all kind of made sense in the end perhaps...

Thea Gilmore: Loft Music.

I think Thea has remained consistently inspired and inspiring at every stage of her career.

I'd give hat-tips towards Kathryn Williams'  Relations, and Karine Polwart's Scottish Songbook, too.

Cheers

Another vote for Loft music, Ever Fallen In Love is a brilliant interpretation. Whilst it's various artists, the Rubber Folk reworking of Rubber Soul has some great tracks on it and several artists emerge with a big thumbs up from me.

Famous Blue Raincoat - Jennifer Warnes

By the way, the Los Lobos album is terrific.

Jennifer Warnes :  Famous Blue Raincoat.

May not count as the songs are all by the same artist, but it's pretty amazing, imo.
