I've just received the new Midnight North CD 'There's Always a Story'. It's up to their usual high standard, I'm pleased to say. Early favourites are 'Stars Falling' and 'Give Away the Ghost'. A bonus live CD came with it, which was recorded in San Fransisco and featured some special guests - Phil Lesh and Bob Weir - Grahame Lesh, guitarist and singer with Midnight North, is Phil's son.


I know Grahame from playing with Phil, of course, but wasn't really aware of Midnight North until recently.  They're very likeable, but the lady singer's voice (sorry, forgotten her name) is so much stronger than Grahame's that the tracks he sings lead on suffer by comparison, I think.

Review? I am tempted by this but have no real idea of what sort of style of music it is beyond Neil McCartney's involvement and guest appearances from various Merry Hellers.

Its a great album and a real grower. Not much like MH at all but plenty of fiddle. The two singles are on youtube and are pretty representative. I've had it quite a while as I got it pre release from Mike Jones and am playing it a lot. Mrs Reg loves it.

The girl singer goes by the name of Elliot Peck (when I first started listening to Midnight North I saw the name and thought it was a bloke!)

Just finished The Beatles - On Air - Live at the BBC Volume 2

My verdict is that the music is fab (and generally sounds great), the between-song messing about is a nice time capsule, and the BBC interviewers are twits. For example, a six-minute interview with John Lennon focuses almost entirely on the size of his house. At least they let George talk a bit about music (although he did not identify any musicians he admired or emulated).

Nice article about George in this months Guitar mag, and it does cover a lot of the musicians who worked on All Things Must Pass.

Danny and the Champs - Los Campeones

Tedeschi Trucks - Layla  (4 superb guitarists on stage together and Susan singing, what better- apparently Derek is currently the highest earning guitarist in the world). They do the song justice and a lot more.

I'd love to see the evidence to back that stat up.  I find it almost impossible to believe.

A little live The Action.  There ain't much of it about, but this was was found in Roger Powell's attic...a tape of a rehearsal for the 1998 Mod Rally reunion.  The FB tease suggests we should hear more of this tape... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XlWo3HJ_kSk

ps what I want to be listening to is the new 37-disc Caravan set which has just landed in Chester...but I'm in Shropshire so that will have to wait for the weekend!

The presence of two songs on the upcoming Bootleg Series box and the issue of two limited edition singles during 2021 has forced a revision to my playlist of orphaned Bob Dylan tracks (songs or versions that do not appear on albums or compilations issued under his own name).

Now listening to the reconfigured version. It runs to the equivalent of 5 and a bit CDs.

Well, you know the original track listing. Don't Ever Take Yourself Away and Let It Be Me will be on Springtime In New York but this year has seen the Jokerman/I and I Reggae Remixes EP and new single containing a gorgeous version of Blind Willie McTell which will not appear on the box. I have also obtained a better copy of Angel Flying Too
Close To The Ground
and discovered that the B side version of Trouble In Mind is not the same as the one on the TIM box so I need to add that too.

Only heard about that alternate Blind Willie McTell yesterday and the reggae remixes EP is news to me.  Wow.  Where can I hear these gems?
