I think it's worth it.  It sees them moving out of the more keyboard-led sounds of the 80s back towards more guitar-led stuff.  But if you've never heard any, it might be worth sampling it on Spotify or whatever before buying.

The one album it doesn't include is their final studio album Clockwork Angels, which is excellent.

Thanks I have heard that actually.  I "quite like it".  I suppose I have probably heard some of the material I'm saying I've never heard as I've listened to some live stuff.  Only time I ever saw them was on the Signals tour.  At that price, it might be worth a punt..

Until today, I'd only heard a few Soft Machine tracks with Allan Holdsworth on guitar. A pal advised me to listen to his solo work, so I thought I'd start with 2CD compilation Eidolon. Going for about £20 online. Then I spotted a 12 album download set on qobuz for only £7.49...... It'd be rude not to!!!

Oasis...I guess you're talking CD/DVD not vinyl?  That's worth a fortune....

On vinyl, if you live where I live two iconic LP's - Tony Captick's Capstick Comes Home on Air Records and Steve Womack's Northern Comfort on Phaht Life Records for £1 each - maybe two of the most of the most funny people I have ever seen.

Cherry Red have 20% off all of their folk and reggae titles during May. It is mostly reggae to be fair but there are titles by Iain Matthews, Steeleye Span and Pentangle. I have just picked up a Swarb anthology and, bizarrely, compilations by Hotlegs and Rachel Sweet which are included for some reason.

As a fan of both folk and reggae, I need to have a shufti at this.

Tell me if there are any reggae titles I should take a look at Jules. I am already considering the Culture singles set.

Oh yes, get that one. It's very good. Not as good as the proper albums of the same period, but still good.

I had a look. Much of it is late 60s/turn of the decade stuff. Pre-roots. I'm no expert on that era. I'm sure there are plenty of great things here, but none that I know well enough to recommend.

Must admit to having very few Macca studio albums in my collection so I thought I'd make a couple of purchases off eBay including 'Flowers in the Dirt' which arrived today. It's the 2017 remastered edition with a bonus disc of demos. I chose that one as I saw him at Wembley on his 89/90 world tour and the set list included a few numbers from that album.

There's a Fairport connection in that DM drummed on one track though the main guest on the album was Elvis Costello. Trevor Horn and David Gilmour are also in the credits.

I rarely follow up ads on Facebook, but did at the end of last week for an ad for classic rock albums from Rock Review records at £3.99 each, and ended up buying the following, all at that price:
Supertramp – Breakfast In America (2010 Remastered CD)
Barclay James Harvest – XII (2003 Remastered CD with Bonus Tracks)
Def Leppard – Pyromania: Deluxe Edition (Double-CD Album)
Camel – Breathless (CD)
Eric Clapton – Backless (2016 Reissue on CD)
Mike Oldfield – Incantations (CD)

It's not often that I say this but the demos disc is well worth a listen. It's Paul and Elvis doing acoustic versions of some of the songs from the album plus a few others. Just them singing together with guitar or piano accompaniment. Giving it a second listen.  Cool

Managed to snag a nice haul - a mixture of cassettes and CDs - in a charity shop today, for fifty pence each:

The Doobie Brothers - Minute By Minute
Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band - It's A Mystery
Molly Hatchet - Beatin' The Odds
Prairie Oyster - Oyster Tracks
Ryan Bingham - Mescalito
Hickman & Quinn - Times

The last three listed are completely new names to me so I'm curious whether the impressions I've made, looking at the packaging, are accurate or not.  Smiley
