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?

Standing In The Doorway: Chrissie Hynde Sings Bob Dylan.

I was really looking forward to this one. I thought it would be a match made in heaven. Unfortunately it has turned out to be a bit of a slog. Some of the songs don't suit these lockdown arrangements at all and the entire album is a bit one paced. There are some nice moments (Sweetheart Like You, Love Minus Zero/No Limit) but sadly this will not be my go to album of Bob covers (which remains the cast album for Girl From The North Country). Hope for better things from Lucinda Williams' forthcoming album of Bobtunes.

Listen instead to Emma Swift's exemplary Blonde on the Tracks...

I can confirm David's recommendation, Blonde on the tracks, great record.
Mind you I thought Chrissie 's effort was ok on my one listen a month or three ago

Something new to me but no doubt known to some of you.

The George Hatcher Band - a fab mix of rock, R'n'B, funk, Southern rock. I'm reminded of BTO, Little Feat etc.

Apparently George came to the UK in the 70's and formed a band supporting the likes of Man, Canned Heat and Dr. Feelgood on tour. Definitley my kinda music!

Currently on their first album Dry Run: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KWhCxhK0GHs

History tells me that I saw the George Hatcher Band at the Reading Festival in 1977.

Playing "Rolled Gold", still one of the best early Stones compilations, and was ok until "Ruby Tuesday" came on. I have no shame admitting that it made me rather emotional...

Let It Bleed last night, Beggars Banquet this morning. Probably my two favourite Stones albums.Sure, Exile and Sticky Fingers are classics, but I love the acoustic songs on these two earlier albums.

CDs by Tanita Tikaram.

Not quite my usual taste - wrong decade(s) for one thing.

I find her voice very affecting. And when she gets it right   the songs are very good.

Also been listening to the latest by The Owl Service - Rise Up, Rise Up which has some ineteresting covers on it. I've also recently bought their first album, A Garland Of Song. Quite why I never bought this at the time of its release I don't know. I was aware of them at the time, and musically it's right up my street.

I have been listening on Bandcamp to the four bonus tracks released with the 10th anniversary edition of Dawes Nothing is Wrong, and trying to decide if they add anything to what is, to me, a pretty near perfect album.  Not yet convinced that they do.
