Strawbs: Settlement (Esoteric LP  2021).

Their new one, and on vinyl too. Sounding very good.




Who is in the band now, Alan?

I'm trying to listen to Robin Williamson's Gems of Celtic Story - One (which I bought a signed copy of the other day).  Sadly it's corrupted and won't play or rip which I suppose isn't that surprising for a 23 year old CD-R with a glued on paper cover.  Has anyone got one of these that could be ripped?


Daves Cousins, Lambert and Bainbridge,  Tony Fernández, Chas Cronk.  Guests include John Ford and Blue Weaver.

I am shocked to realise that last time I listened to these records I was in my mid 20s, more than 30 years ago. There was nothing remotely original about the Satellites but gosh they were a lot of fun and I loved them at the time in the period immediately before I discovered Fairport and folk/rock in general, which sort of took over my life for a while after that and a lot of this other stuff got set aside.


I have a couple of their albums and saw them at the Town & Country in London back in around 89/90. Like you say, a good-time fun rock n roll band. They did a cover of Don't Pass Me By if I remember correctly. I then got into The Black Crowes who took themselves much more seriously.

If you like your pastoral psych folk with a hint of Canterbury about it, then this Spencer Cullum's Coin Collection is really rather a lovely treat...  Even includes a gorgeous cover of the String Band's The Tree.

Coincidentally, I listened to this for the first time in ages at the weekend.  Storming stuff.

Not bad .

I'm listening to Home by Home from the early 70's featuring later members of ACDC and Wishbone Ash but not as rocky as those bands . Try this classic

I enjoyed it - will go back and give it another listen soon, but floats my boat.  I am only just getting into his music, having been given Sola Scriptura for Christmas.

Glad to know you're enjoying it. I haven't taken the plunge yet but it's on my wants list. Sola Scriptura is probably my favourite of his, and if you like that one, you might find Lifeline and Momentum up your street as well.

He does a nice line in "acoustic troubadour" records too which are worth seeking out. Songs For November, in particular, is excellent.

I've been listening to the new album from William the Conqueror 'Maverick Thinker'. If you're not familiar with WTC, they have been around about 5 or 6 years and are a trio comprising Ruarri Joseph (who writes all the songs) with a rhythm section of Harry Harding and Naomi Holmes. It's a great collection of songs and I can't wait to see them in concert when it's possible.  Incidentally, I made a mistake when I ordered the CD from the website and accidentally ordered two. So, if anyone facies a free copy, pm me and I'll send you one.

Unless there is a different version of Covers out there from the one I own, this song is not on the album.

Don't think I've ever listened to that.  Should I rectify that?  It's not really awful, I trust - no Billy idol or anything?  Wink Smiley

The Doors. Nothing specific, just a "Best of..."
The quality of this album surprises and pleases me every time it gets played.
I agree. And listening to it through headphones, rather than in the background, you hear every nuance  Smiley


This has made me want to play 'Absolutely live' - one of my favourite live albums.
