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".

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

Yes i have been listening to that too. One of the two deluxe reissues that came out last Friday that have been demanding my attention this week.

The other is McGear by Mike "McGear" McCartney. It is just a fabulous record from 1974 that I have owned on vinyl since the 70s. Produced by his older brother and backed by 80% of Wings who were, at the time, without a drummer. Step up one Gerry Conway who plays throughout the album (the most rock n roll drumming I have ever heard from Gerry). As an album it knocks spots off and rocks harder than many of big brother's efforts from that decade and is blessed with Mike's eccentric and witty lyrics. And The Man Who Found God On The Moon seems an entirely appropriate song this week. A really nicely done reissue package from Cherry Red too right down to hmaging the original Warner Brothers Burbank label and great remastered sound.

Yes, and there's a good swatch of them. Disc one has a very good quality BBC concert, disc 2 has only a couple of tracks, one of which is the  lovely 'Earth Mother',  live, and disc 3 has a good number of singles etc, including a rather unnerving cover of 'Masters of War'.  I've been enjoying the set, and thinking once again how much good music there is, which I just missed entirely first time around.

A compilation with the latest issue of Mojo titled Island Radicals. Includes tracks by Fairport, RT and John Cale along with the likes of Steel Pulse and Amy Winehouse. The magazine has interviews with RT, Tom Waits and Rhiannon Giddens. Bizarrely it's the September issue... out in July.

After watching the excellent Classic Albums episode about The Chirping Crickets a couple of weeks ago I found a reasonably priced copy of the vinyl reissue. I have been a Buddy Holly fan since I was in my teens but only previously owned CD compilations. After the documentary it just felt as though this one should be heard on vinyl. So now I am. Not sure about the coloured vinyl (yellow) but it sounds great.

Many thanks, Alan.  Well worth a punt, by the sound of it.  I bought a couple of her records years ago, but never managed to see her live.  Never even saw any shows advertised down here, but maybe that had something to do with the crippling stage fright that Wikipedia mentions.  She should certainly have been better appreciated when she was alive.

I'm waiting for the developers in work to finish a particular piece of fairly urgent and definitely essential work, which is now 4 days overdue, but so far today all they've done is talk about films, games and Boris Johnson coming to Wales. Oh, and looking at settees  Huh  Huh

Instead of having a rant I shall listen to some Cure, followed by Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Creatures, and bit of Jesus and Mary Chain and finish off with some All About Eve. This will enable my inner Goth to manifest itself so I will no longer care about how chuffing long it's taken them to create a simple form  Angry  Roll Eyes
