Lal and Mike Waterson : Bright Phoebus  ( Domino 2LP, 2017).

I like this but perhaps strangely I enjoy the bonus LP of 1971 demos more than the actual album.

Because of all the legal shenanigans about this, the reissue itself is now rather valuable...and increasing...and regarded as a bootleg on Discogs (and banned from sale).  It's a crazy world.

Yes, it looked totally legitimate when it came out in 2017, and I bought it immediately.  Only recently I discovered it has become unofficial.

As far as most people were aware, it was totally legitimate.

Aye, but in the eyes of the law, it ain't and that's that.  Madness.

Ramblin' Gamblin' Man by The Bob Seger System. I stepped away from this one (other than the title cut and its killer drum intro) for many years, but I've been diving back into as much of the earlier stuff that is still available. It actually is a more pleasant experience than I remembered.

I think.most people bought it in good faith, given that it came from a recognised label.

It's getting another release very soon, as part of a 2CD of Pegg stuff.

Dreadzone: Dubwiser Volume One

They've a sale on at the moment; check out their website - plenty of decent reductions...

I paid £5 for this CD, and £5 for a Dubwiser t-shirt.

I saw that advertised on The Korgis social media.  On to the important question...is it any good?

I have only listened twice so far and it is all very subjective isn't it. Emergency Love was my favourite album of whatever recent year it was released and this is very much in a similar style and indeed duplicates a couple of songs. He is a really accomplished songwriter so if you like slightly laid back, slightly bluesy singer songwriter music with shades of Dylan, Ry Cooder, The Band and a pinch of mid 70s Clapton then yes.

It is nothing like Stackridge or The Korgis.

I had a cassette of "Clevedon Pier" by Andy Davis. Very well-crafted, but sadly didn't get more than a few plays - in the car! (that's how long ago it was...)

Yes, that is a very different kind of album, less song based, more ambient. I  don't play that one much either.

Prompted by comments in another thread, I have realised that I don't have enough Rush in my life! So this morning will be the YouTube mix of songs. Any recommendations for which Rush albums to listen to will be gratefully received Smiley

Start with Permanent Waves...and then move backwards in time.

Here's the thing about Rush for me. I know 'the earlier stuff is the best', and generally tell people to listen to Permanent Waves, Hemispheres, A Farewell To Kings and so on. However, the albums I listen to most frequently myself are Moving Pictures, Signals and Power Windows. Signals in particular is a weird one as it was lambasted even at the time, but for some reason I'm much, much more likely to play it than 2112.

Cheers
