For starters, Gottle o' Geer has either the full band or just Swarb on his own in the photo on the back ...


Credited to simply "Fairport" in the UK, and "Fairport featuring Dave Swarbrick" in the US


And there's the Fairport Convention self titled LP which is actually What We did etc. (US).

https://www.discogs.com/Fairport-Convention-Fairport-Convention/release/2089547

And the live LP retitled A Moveable Feast, of course.  


Just imported a  WL promo copy of the US "Fairport" ("Holidays" in a unique sleeve) for $20


Here's my still sealed 8-track  Smiley

Curate's egg.  Some bliss, some fun, some head-scratching.  Not dissimilar to the previous one for much of the ride.  I'd say patchy, but that always sounds dismissive.  The good patches are very good.  I dunno, lots of fans are singing its praises, so I may be being unnecessarily tepid here.

Single disc or two disc version? I haven't succumbed yet. I didn't listen to the previous one much but regard the one before that as a masterpiece.

On balance I'd say yes, but only just. It's better than its predecessor, which feels like damning it with faint praise as for me that represented a career low point for Mike, but now I've got to know it better I've found quite a bit to like, but nothing to love. Starts well and ends well but a lot of what comes in between isn't particularly memorable.

Thanks, Col.  Interesting, as that mirrors my view of the previous one...although a few people (including on here) appeared to love that.  I thought it was toe-curlingly awful.  I'll preview it on Spotify...

Double.  I'd actually have gone for the Japanese version out of choice, because the bonus tracks are, atypically, well worth the bother.  But oh the expense!

I'd agree with that.  Tracks 1, 2, and 10 are the highlights.

Nick Mason's Saucerful of Secrets live in Houston, Texas.

Something unexpected in this wonderful audience recording is Guy Pratt's cheeky nods to John Entwistle, sprinkled throughout.  I definitely heard the bass part from "5:15" and a significant part of the Ox's solo from "The Real Me" dropped randomly into old Pink Floyd tunes.

I'd forgotten about that - yes there were cheeky Entwistle riffs inserted into the bass parts when I saw them last year.

I think I spotted the melodic bass intro to "Getting in Tune" as well...  Well played, Mr. Pratt!

I love that quote about this being the first time that Nick Mason, now 74, has ever slept on a tour bus.   Grin

...The Doobie Brothers: Live from the Beacon Theater, released June 28.

This live album includes complete performances of the albums "Toulouse Street" and "The Captain and Me" recorded live in late 2018 at two shows at the Beacon Theater in New York.  I am almost all the way through my first listen, and it's fantastic.  For casual fans, there are solid live versions of some of the Doobies' best-known early songs ("Listen to the Music," "Jesus is Just Alright," "Rockin' Down the Highway" (from TS), "China Grove," "Long Train Running," "Without You" and "South City Midnight Lady" (from TCAM).  Speaking as a fanboy since age 13, however, the treasures for me are the live versions of the super deep cuts from this pair of classic albums from 1972 and 1973.

As a bonus, the double-CD set includes a DVD with a complete performance cobbled together from the two shows.

Charles Bradley-Black Velvet. On the one hand this is a short collection of b-sides etc, culled to pay a final tribute to the memory of Charles and could be viewed as disappointing. On the other, it shows exactly why Charles was so diverse and why his talent as a singer deservedly and finally was put in the spotlight by Daptone Records, who were exactly the right bunch of people for his music.
