Thunder, Lightning, Strike by The Go! Team, earlier while driving, perfect uplifting music for a sunny morning.

Then it was Thunder Up by The Sound, an 80s group (from Brighton, or do I misremember?) that never got big. I bought it a few years ago when I saw a second hand copy. It's OK, they sound very much of their time, bit like Echo......, U2, Then Jericho, and others I can't put a name to.

Now it's Time Machine, a best of for Stray. If you were watching rock bands in the 70s you must have seen Stray, they supported everyone, or so it seemed, as well as playing on the club/college circuit in their own right. It's a fantastic double CD, another band to be filed under "shoulda been huge".

Devils Dance Floor - Flogging Molly has just cropped up on the BBC2 advert for the Golf Open! Someone has good taste.

2 bargain (i.e. promo version) purchases... Holly Cook's "Vessel of Love" - a lovely album of reggaefied tunes  Smiley

and

Beth Hart "Live at RAH 2018" - oh dear, I really don't like this.  Huh

I'd heard BH with Joe Bonamassa so thought I'd give it a go. I guess it'll find its way into my wife's car - she's a JB fan, so may well enjoy it.

Caravan & The New Symphonia. Just plugged one of the last gaps in my Caravan albums. Held off for a long time because I was suspicious it would be twee reworkings of the songs with strings etc. Instead it's a blistering live romp through some of their great tunes with an orchestra playing their hearts out and really adding a huge amount to the songs. I think I'm heading to the repeat button.

Yes it worked very well. I recall it being a great one-off gig at Drury Lane.  Smiley
