6music having been playing Two Halves quite a lot which I really like. Just listening to 2020 now.

And now listening to Magna Invocatio by Jaz Coleman and the St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra.

Its … different to Rachael Dadd, I can say that much.

Songs From The Victorious City is one of my all time favourite albums. Killing Joke are one of my least favourite bands. This may take a few listens before I can figure out on what side of the coin it lands.

Cheers

An empty day in the chaos & stress of the season so catching up with the acquisitions of the last few days and a final play for a couple of seasonal offerings that still work beyond the day itself.

Live In Concert - A Winter Union (only 3 specifically Christmas songs on here and one wassail)
Valve Bone Woe - Chrissie Hynde
The Band - The Band (50th Anniversary, 2 disc edition)
Amadjar - Tinariwen
The King's Mouth - The Flaming Lips
White Xmas Lies - Magne Furuholmen (A couple of songs reference Christmas but it is more of a winter album)
Thanks For The Dance - Leonard Cohen
Easy Money - Old Man Luedecke

My CD length playlist of my favourite tracks of the year.

You Are My Sunshine (Dark) - Maartin Allcock & Lisa Starnini
Dave - Joe Jackson
Give - Nils Lofgren
Street Song - The Who
The Ballad of North John Street - Ian Prowse
Love Starvation - Nick Lowe
Ball & Chain - The Rails
In My Time On Earth - The Waterboys
Santiago - Celtic Social Club
Gonna Make It Real - The Long Ryders
Sometimes Always Never - Edwyn Collins & Sean Read
Lazy (Live) - David Byrne
Morgenstund - Schiller & Nena
Things Were Better Before (Undersound Remix) - Tankus The Henge
Amethyst Realm - The Claypool Lennon Delirium
Old Friends - Steve Earle & The Dukes

I have just realised that Bruce Springsteen should be in there too and possibly something from the lovely Chrissie Hynde album which I have only just got. I may need a rethink.

Things Were Better Before (Undersound Remix) - Tankus The Henge

What a fabulous track. I am astonished that Tankus were not booked for Cropredy this year. They are one amazing live act, they would blow the field away and leave many of the ladies in a tizzy. One of my favourite live acts.

I have been listening to an interesting band called The Comet is Coming.  Their Album Trust in the Lifeforce of the deep mystery Nothing like Tankus , sort of more like a cross between Soft Machine (3rd / 4th era) Hawkwind and Gong. Keyboard , Sax percussion trio . Youngsters but pretty good jazz psychedelic space rock.

I’m amazed too. They’d go down a storm!

Shabaka Hutchings other band, Sons of Kemet, are also worth investigating. Better live than on record, mind.

Listening to Wildwood Kin's second (self-titled) album, which is currently only a fiver on Amazon.  Worth picking up if you enjoyed them at Cropredy.

The 50th Anniversary edition of "In the Court of the Crimson King".  Excellent new album mixes and very interesting "other" tracks.  

Karaoke Crim anyone?  All together now:  "cat's foot, iron claw...………"  Wink

Albion Band : Stella Maris (Talking  Elephant CD).

This sounds like I might like it if the CD gave it a better chance.

Picked up a copy today as a birthday present to myself. Extraordinary and I too can't quite work out why I like it so much. Refreshingly different to anything else in my collection of music.

The guy's an absolute genius.  It all makes sense live... Check out his 'supergroup' too...Hen Ogledd (translation: the Old North), equally wondrous.

ps Listening to?  Lots of JD/New Order and REM in honour of Bernard's 64th and Michael's 60th (both today).

The 40th anniversary edition of Jethro Tull's Stormwatch arrived the other day, but I haven't had time to sit down and listen to it yet.  Not an album I know but after missing out on the big new edition of Songs Of The Wood a few years ago (presumably they produced fewer of them than the other ones?  It seems to be the only one that sold out that way.) I decided to go for it.

Just picked up the first two albums by Gypsy, an early Seventies hammond heavy American prog band.

First impressions suggest I'm going to be listening to these a lot!
