Fallow Ground, the new album from Spires & Boden.  Very fine and great to hear the duo again.

....better class of Charity shops
must exist in your neighbourhood , if you need any Steps , Robbie Williams or Westlife CD's don't be afraid to ask , although I bought a Ronan Keating CD for the duet with Kate Rusby last week , that's as close to quality as I could find in Hull

I volunteered at a BHF shop a few years back helping to sort the huge number of cds and dvds that had been donated. There was some good stuff among the cds - it looked like someone's collection had been handed in and there were a lot of albums from the 60s and 70s. There was even a Simon & Garfunkel boxed set which I had my eye on.

But generally it was the pop albums that were put out on display. I did try and put some more interesting cds out  but if people are going in only to buy pop then the good ones will be put back in the store room.

Oxfam (where I've also volunteered) are more organised in that some shops will have someone to go through the cds and vinyl and if there's anything valuable they'll be often be sold online.

Still thoroughly enjoying the recent Big Big Train album, Common Ground. Always a worry when a favourite band goes through a major line-up change but, I think they've come through unscathed, happily.

Good to hear that about the Spiers and Boden album. It's on my 'to listen' list.

I love that album - Richie Blackmore at his best.

I believe this is the rejected back cover

First listen through to the new album by Sam Kelly & The Lost Boys The Wishing Tree.  I've been a big fan since discovering The Changing Room some years back, and was very happy to see them at Cropredy a few years ago.  First listen hasn't grabbed me quite as instantly as the last album (Pretty Peggy) did, but I think that it may be a bit more of a grower.  Going back to have another listen now...

Every Valley - Public Service Broadcasting

Ahead of the release of their new album next week which I am very much looking forward to as it is themed around Berlin.

I tend to forget I have their stuff and don't play it as often as I should.

I've been really disappointed by the two singles to date.  Well, that's a bit harsh - they're very intelligent, decent pop music...but I think this whole project is without the USP that makes PSB what they are.   So for the first time in their career to date I'm a bit 'meh' about it...

I've not heard them. Will wait for the album. I do love Berlin. I even have a CD of ambient sounds recorded around the city which is wonderfully evocative and therapeutic.

Listening to Lindsey Buckingham's new self-titled solo album - the first since his latest departure from Fleetwood Mac and subsequent heart bypass surgery.
A true solo album - Lindsey plays and sings everything you hear, with a proper old-school running time of just under 37 minutes.
Or, if we're really returning to the days of old measurements : "will comfortably fit on to one side of a C-90".
The songs, vocals and musicianship are up Mr Buckingham's usual high standards, however, in common with most of his other solo works, I can't help feeling that this material would benefit from a full Mac work-up.
Decent as these songs are, they'd probably sound more lush and full with a Stevie and Christine harmony stack, the best possible icing for the reliable rhythm bedrock of Mick & John. Bit of a shame it wasn't to be.

PS Classic Rock magazine came to pretty much the same conclusion, a glowing review but "Fleetwood Mac missed a trick by not having their name on it."

Bob's Springtime in New York.  In many ways, this is my Bob...how he sounded when I first got into him.  It's a nice set and surprisingly enjoyable.

I love this era. The outtakes from Infidels were one of the first bootlegs I ever owned. I have been really looking forward to this. Unfortunately I shall have to continue to look forward to it as my copy is currently scheduled to arrive on 27th.  Angry
