Pete Atkin's post 70s albums.


The ones written by Clive James are particularly excellent.

Indeed. The only PA/CJ album I've not yet been really impressed by is Colours of The Night  (2015). Not bad, just not as many outstanding tracks.

Lots of Oysterband while I am working at home today. Currently the beautiful, sparse version of Mississipi Summer sung by Alan Prosser from the This House Will Stand collection.

Before that, Bold Champions by the Dovetail Trio. Thought I'd give this a go because of Jamie Roberts' involvement but it is a bit too traditional in approach for me.

That is indeed a terrific version of Mississippi Summer and a reminder that I really must explore Alan Prosser's solo work. Here I'm listening to JS Ondara's Tales Of America. I believe I mentioned this new artist and album previously, but I really must put his name out there again. Just a fabulous record...and its only his first!

Rhiannon Giddens with Francesco Turrisi - There Is No Other

There's a track titled Little Margaret which isn't a million miles from Matty Groves. My ears pricked up when I heard the words, "Saying how do you like your snow-white pillow."

I'm a huge Thea Gilmore fan, so I was looking forward to her new release 'Small World Turning'. However, I was a little disappointed when I first heard it yesterday, so I played it again. For some treason, on second hearing, I found I really love it. Weird.

First play today and mostly loved it, perhaps the couple of tracks I wasn't so keen on will grow on me.

I think it is one of her most interesting albums, really rootsy, fab arrangements and people like Kat Gilmore and Cara Dillon add so much to the sound. Made an immediate impact on me, funny how different we all are!

The Waterboys - Where the Action Is. First listen, so early days yet but it's already sounding a lot better than its predecessor Out of All This Blue, which I thought was something of a career low for Mike, although there are one or two cringeworthy moments I could live without.

Graham Parker - Squeezing Out Sparks Solo Acoustic 40th Anniversary. Can't really see the point in this, but I'm something of a GP completist so bought it anyway. Can't see it getting too much time in the CD player tbh, it doesn't improve on the original and isn't radically different enough to at least offer a new interpretation.

Trying to work at home after waking up with a very sore, scratchy throat.

I need something that is not too distracting from the job in hand so I have gone for Without A Net, the Grateful Dead live album. Not a fan favourite I know but one of their most accessible catalogue live albums in my view. I always found it a bit strange that it was not included in the Beyond Description box.
