Donny Hathaway - Live, I can't believe I never realised how good this guy was. Brilliant soulful, soul.


Amy Winehouse said Mr Hathaway was a major influence on her and namechecked him on "Rehab" so it must be time I checked him out

Modern Nature - Island of Noise - the vinyl box.  OMG...it's exquisite (both physically and aurally).

Barn - Neil Young & Crazy  Horse

First listen. It starts well but then come a couple of tracks with lumpen lyrics but I am only on track 5 so hope springs eternal.

Also my first Christmas listening of the year:

Have Yourself A Rockin' Little Christmas - Lucinda Williams, which is great.

Oh, I can't be arsed.  Life is too short for another disappointing Neil album.  I'm listening to Zuma instead..  Smiley

No it was only two tracks without lumpen lyrics by that stage. The next two had. Then my attention wandered for a bit which probably says something about the album but it recaptured my attention with a couple of strong tracks towards the end. I shall give it a few listens before passing full judgement. It is clearly not a masterpiece but on first hearing it is at least a step up from Colorado to my ears.

Kevin Ayers early albums.

Nothing much wrong with the first 5.  Sad that he left us rather early.

Dee Palmer - Through Darkened Glass.

The opening song starts off with a choral arrangement, Dee's vocals are ok, very good for an 80+ year old i suppose. Martin Barre guests on guitar, and the song soon sounds like something from the 70s Tull catalogue. Available on CD and Bandcamp. Listening to the rest of the album now.

I think it was released in 2018. It's really quite charming. Some lovely orchestration.

While you're here David, I'm also listening to a lot of The Owl Service. Even including Love Is Like a Railway Station.  Smiley

A good point well made...sorry, wasn't paying attention.

Great stuff.  I think the Owl Service are one of the best bands of the last 15 years...and playing to a ludicrously small pool of people given their talents.  I'm glad Steven is enthused to be making more music.  Having said that, LILARS is, er, fun.  A couple of listens is more than enough for me...
