Joni Mitchell: Shine (Concord Records LP  2019).


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


It is not peak Joni but I was surprised how good it is when I finally picked it up. Strong songs performed straight. Nothing to scare the horses.

No it's lovely.  The CD came out in 2007 and it'll be her last, I think. It has grace, dignity and grandeur. And you get a 2007 re-do of 'Big Yellow Taxi'. Cool

Neal Morse Sola Gratia - a first listen after it arrived yesterday.


First impressions?


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.




Thanks for the recommendations!

Another Bandcamp Friday, and I seem to have another pile of music to listen to from Big Big Train (selections from Summer's Lease), Kaprekar's Constant (Fate Outsmarts Desire), Lau (Folk Songs), RT (Live from London), Twelfth Night (Voices in The Night), the C:Live Collective (The Age of Insanity) and Pendragon (Love Over Fear).

Starting with BBT, and it all matches up to their usual high standard.

I somehow managed to miss hearing about the Lau EP. Now downloaded from Bandcamp. Cheers Will.

Currently listening to Bert Jansch - The Collection.

Kami Thompson - Love Lies

I found a review of her pre-Rails (and Dead Flamingos) debut album from 2011

"As we know, genes don’t guarantee talent, but this is thrilling in its eviscerated, warped pop sensibility."

I have too, but you can listen to it straight away through your bandcamp account.

Just sent for this. Cush was a unique writer and a fantastic singer. A real loss.

The little tribute on the bandcamp page was lovely.

Taking a sick day as I am still a bit wiped out from my Covid vaccination. Listening to Neil Young's Archives Vol 2 which it stopped me getting to over the last couple of days.
