Paladin - Charge


One of my favourite rock/prog albums. †


Fabulous live. Did you ever see them?


Sad to say, no I didn't.  They were right in my era, though. I saw a few other 70s bands.

Listening to 6Musicís 90ís throwback day and Cud came on. For a while I genuinely thought it might be a lost Thompy track.  Grin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D7ikmVbr8J8

Without a safety net by Big Country, I don't know why I don't listen to it more, it's still wonderful nearly 30 years on

Humble Pie :  Humble Pie (1970/ Repertoire CD, 2005).


A high point in a very wobbly recording career, imo. I've always liked Humble Pie, and even saw them back in the day, when they were a thing. There are some albums by them i hardly ever play, and there are others, like this one and Smokin', which I love.

I really like As Safe As Yesterday Is, their first LP. I keep meaning to hear their self-titled third.

The self titled is a good blend of rockers and quieter songs. It doesn't suffer from the poor production which you often seem to get from HP albums.

Colfax by The Delines

Laid back Americana. Perfect for a warm summer's evening with a campfire and a few bottles of beer and good friends, none of which currently applies!  Grin

Lol.  You must be hating it  Grin

I've got Modern Nature's Island of Noise on repeat at the moment, with periodic Datblygu saved for when I'm window shopping accommodation in Cymru.

Just discovered the music of Eggs Over Easy. Very nice country-rock.

I think they included John Steel of the Animals at some point...

Fairport Convention  :  Babbacombe Lee (Island reissue LP).


Fairport Convention  : Full House (Island 'pink rim'  LP).

I remember reading about Sandy's exit from the band and the random decision to make Swarbrick lead vocalist.  All in all, I dont think he does too badly.

For me , the loss of Richard to the band is a step too far , making Babbacombe Lee (and Angel Delight) more like footnotes to the classic run of albums
Now if Simon had been ready to take on more vocals alongside Swarb after Richard left .....and maybe hired another guitar player

Full House is (generally) my favourite FC album (with the next favourite four being those that preceded it), but in recent years I' ve grown to really love Angel Delight, and if I'm being generous put it in the pile with the first five, which I still think is a run of work that only a tiny number of bands have matched.  BL is a lesser work, but near the top of the 'second division' for sure....

Except this run is from three or four different bands with the same name. †Grin

I think of 'Babbacombe' Lee as being at the very least an attempt at a major work, where as Angel Delight was more of a holding operation. I enjoy both, mind.
