Fairport Cropredy 2008... haven't played it for some time, and had forgotten just how lovely the rendition of WKWTTG with Chris and Kellie While is. Those harmonies are superb, and the band's backing is nigh on perfect... delicate and tasteful.

Sandy Denny :  The BBC Sessions 1973-75  (Strange Fruit CD, 1997).


Before the boxed set was released, that CD used to swap hands for BIG money.

Jules


I bought it when it came out, and couldn't believe how much it was going for. The current prices on Discogs are between 40 and 75 quid. Oddly the prices for the box vary by about the same.


Yes I bought mine when it was released too. I've seen it at various silly prices in the intervening years.

I am currently sorting out/reorganising/rationalising my CD collection, a job which I had in any case planned for when I reduced my work hours from the start of last month but which is now proving a Lockdown distraction and making the isolated days pass pleasingly quickly. I have been doing this for a week and have reached letter F.

In the process I have been rediscovering some music that I have not heard in somomomome cases for decades (sometimes with good reason). So far,
Johnny Diesel & The Injectors,
Energy Orchard,
Black Grass,
Robert Cray (one particular album)
and a CD of Del Amitri B sides.

Listening to Karine Polwart’s Scottish Songbook on bright red vinyl  Grin. Some great new versions of songs such as The Whole of the Moon, Dignity, Since Yesterday, Swim Until You Can’t See Land, Chance etc.

it's a great album and one of the things that I found from it that I was reminded what a great songwriter Ricky Ross is.

Absolutely and I’ve got tickets to see Deacon Blue in November...I hope!

Laura Marling "Alexandra", a response to Len Cohen's Alexandra Leaving.  The piece is good too.  She's an interesting artist.

I know lots who agree with you, Alan, and to some degree that probably includes me.  But I think this is exceptional.

Trawling through some of my old vinyl albums, I decided to put on my favourite Joe Jackson album, Body And Soul. What a tremendous album and the quality on vinyl is stunning

A fantastic record; Louisada is one of my favourite instrumentals of all time, totally evocative of a time and place. Joe Jackson is one of the most underrated musicians around, IMHO.
