Steam driven?! It's not as fast as that, Dave.

I've given up on it - virtually unusable search, it's so lethargic.  Sorry, TE, but you really need to get your website sorted...


I know it isn't great, but it wasn't that bad when I ordered the albums from them the other day.

I'm sure it's worse than it used to be - I bought a fair few CDs from the site a few years back, and it was definitely smoother to use.

I've just used the site without any difficulty, prompted by this conversation. So that is money I did not intend to spend  Grin

Paradise & Thorns

The reissue of The Guvnor's Big Birthday Bash for a fiver
and
Dylancentric for £8 which I didn't even realise had been released. It is a recording of some of Ashley's Dylan tribute show on the Isle of Wight last August.

Talking Elephant are doing an offer on a bunch of Ashley Hutchings and related bands (Albions, Rainbow Chasers, etc) albums, so if anyone wants to get hold of some of his back catalogue, there's some decent albums in there for only a fiver.  I picked up the Dylancentric album, My Land Is Your Land and his Beginnings of FC show.




And if anyone can actually work out how to order the bloody things from the steam driven website, do let me know...  Smiley Grin


Click on the album of choice and it should give you a track listing and a basket. I think it might be better to go via Ashley's own site. The link I Googled seemed to be from Christmas time.

Just to clarify - are the CDs still signed?

Of the three I bought, only one was.  And seemed to be signed 'to Adrei', so I assume that had been left over from a previous signing session when someone didn't collect their CD?!  The other two were just in cardboard sleeves, wrapped in plastic, so couldn't have been signed easily anyway.

Tony Banks' 4 CD compilation A Chord Too Far is available on Google Play for £5.99 (https://play.google.com/store/music/album/Tony_Banks_A_Chord_Too_Far?id=B74m756lhnfmqtpwnfhmc46er6m).  Actually there are 4 tracks missing compared to the physical version, all from his two more 'classical' albums on a different label, so I assume it is a rights/permissions issue.  Since I have one of those anyway, it didn't bother me too much.

Listening now and enjoying it on the whole.  There are a couple of tracks on there with Fish on vocals.  Was this a nod to those who said that early Marillion were Genesis clones?!

The Police, in a box, all the studio albums plus a CD of versions, etc. £4.99 in HMV Cheltenham. I was slightly tempted by the Hot Rats box at a little over half price... but £75 for 6 CDs is still, I think, over the top. It's rumoured HMV is again in trouble, and may well be selling off a lot from its overstocked warehouses... worth keeping an eye on??

Thanks for the heads up.  I think the Chester one is still open...when I'm back up in the NW the week after next I'll pop along and have a look.

Cream Farewell Tour box is £26.

Revisiting the Police, I'd forgotten just how good Andy Summers is...

I prefer his pre- and post-Police work if I'm honest, but he is a great one.  He's nearer 78 than 77 as well now.  Gulp.

Got myself a fistful today there are mostly £2.99 with a nice range to choose from including Richard & Linda, Mister Marley, John Martyn, Traffic etc.
My haul included Rosanne Cash, Lee Perry, Courtney Pine and the two Mark Knopler CDs I didn't possess.

We went to town in search of a large plastic box thinking of going to Wilko or similar. However passing by a charity shop we were tempted to go in. Of course we found a large plastic box of the type we wanted. It was priced at £15 but contained nearly 50 X-Files DVDs containing 4 episodes each. How long is social distancing going to last?

Until early June 2020, in my experience.

Thanks for the tip . Byrds box looks to be a real bargain with all the additional tracks.
