Kevin Coyne.

I have just about all of his catalogue so there's plenty to choose from.


It's Kevin Ayers for me, finally getting around to the 5 CD box I picked up for little money. Just took a punt knowing nothing more his name, and really enjoying Bananamour, the first one that came up on Itunes. Great songs, highly creative arrangements. Going to enjoy this afternoon.

1 is, I think, the best in that little list.  It's a fantastic album.  Love 4 too, of course.  Don't know the MD - is it good, Andy?

Marcella's debut solo album when Shakspear's Sister split, as I recall. Lively and worth a listen.

'Nod's as Good as a Wink' is a fab album. I Loved The Faces. They were so shambolic, but when it all clicked they were unbeatable

God, I'd forgotten that - there was a such a hype about it at the time, but I'm not sure it did any of the parties much of a favour really.  File next to Emerson, Lake and Powell.

Great choice, Kevin Ayers is one of my all time musical heroes . Love most of his stuff , from early Soft Machine to his final album 2007 The Unfairground , which I rate amongst one of his finest works. Whatevershebringswesing is also a cracker, the title track has Robert Wyatt duetting

I completely disagree. Short-lived BBM may have been, but those musicians produced a top album IMHO.

I've been completely won over, really a unique artist but with nods to other favourites of mine like Caravan and Soft machine in the mix. He's now on the list for further exploration

Listening to and watching a DVD of John McLaughlin recording his "Floating Point" album in Chennai. Fascinating to watch the development of the pieces over 5 days in the studio. Some fantastic playing by hugely talented musicians, and a joy to see so many smiles and laughing.

I'm not sure David
 Not even sure its official. The quality varies enormously  but it's a nice listen if you don't mind DJ intros. Theres a short interview with Jaqui.

Oh if you want the vinyl edition dont hang about as it's numbered limited.

Flashing back to my days of hanging out occasionally at the legendary Maxwell's Club in Hoboken, New Jersey in the 1990's by playing my favorite band from that era-Health & Happiness Show. At the moment it is their second album 'Instant Living' notable for Richard Lloyd playing guitar on a few tracks.

At the moment it is their second album 'Instant Living' notable for Richard Lloyd playing guitar on a few tracks.

I bought the first two Richard LLoyd solo albums , having bought Tom's solo albums , but for me it's the same problem as Mick Taylor , great in the "band" , but never hitting the heights afterwards by themselves , and certainly moving out of the spotlight
Which is sad , really , and Television without Richard doesn't appeal
Why can't people get along , when the music's so good, and the talent is so amazing ?
I will check out some of his more recent albums as they are inexpensive on CD
