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
