A friend has been having a clear-out of her cds and has sent me these among others -

Boo Hewerdine - Swimming In Mercury
Reg Meuross - Leaves & Feathers
Dr Faustus - Wager

She reckons that other people do better versions of songs by Boo and Reg than they do themselves but those two discs sound good on first listen.

The Zombies - Oddessey [sic] and Oracle 50th anniversary edition with bonus tracks (autographed by all four of the surviving original members)

I bought this little jewel from the Zombies official store for $35, complete with the autographs.  The bonus tracks consist of a couple of early takes, an instrumental backing track, a couple of mono versions of album songs, and a remix of Time of the Season.  But in truth, the original album is such a slice of fried gold, I didn't need the extras.

3 Mustaphas 3 - pretty much the entire discography on CD, having not listened to it for 25 years when I bought it on vinyl, and loving every minute. I got a brilliant funny look from a woman waiting to cross the road as I danced in my seat at the traffic lights.

Great band.  I only saw them once (at Guildford Folk festival - an early one - if I recall), but they were fun.  One of the band played in a duo with Ian A Anderson and I saw them playing headline to Shelagh McDonald on her return to gigging in London 5 or 6 years ago - they played a few 3M3 songs.

I saw 3M3 at Salisbury Arts Centre - tremendous night  Fez - such a shame that Niaveti and Isfa'ani are no longer with us.  Cry

I've been listening to a selection of Bill Laswell dub/trance stuff online (having just received the new Wobble/Laswell album), and a couple of David Torn/Bill Bruford/Tony Levin CDs.

Kickin' Up The Sawdust - Ashley Hutchings. A newly plugged gap in my collection. Not the most essential of his works but pleasant nonetheless.

over the last few days i have been listening to cd's i bought at the local British Heart Foundation charity shop. All stuff i had not really thought of buying at any point in the past.

So far
Turin Brakes- The optomist
Morcheeba - parts of the process
very best of aerosmith
Cast - all change
Echo belly - on
counting crows - films about a ghost(best of)
Maroon 5 - songs about jane

Still have u2, how to dismantle a bomb, the darkness - permission to land, supertramp -it was the best of times and kings of leon only by night.  
Total cost around £8 some were 50p each or 3 for a pound.  So far i am pleased with all of the ones i have listened too.

Downloaded a few new (to me) albums for my current trip to Central Africa, and I have been enjoying Bruce Cockburn's Live (deluxe edition, with four extra songs from the cassette I used to own), and I'm currently on The Long Ryders Psychedelic Country Soul - it's been said here already, but it really is just as good as their classic albums.  Also had a first listen to The Rails Other People, which is pretty fine too.

Roger Daltrey's autobiography, on CD.

I'm up to Kenney Jones' introduction into the band, in which Roger explains that he never said Kenney was a s*** drummer, he just said Kenney was a s*** drummer for The Who, in the same sense Keith would have been a s*** drummer for The Faces.

And, he was right on both counts, wasn't he?
