Posted - 06/05/2013 : 17:39:50 Didn't realise the price of vinyl today as it is a long time since I bought it new. My purchases today are from second-hand/charity shops and I am now willing to be a bit more tolerant of flaws than I was in the 70's. I may be a tad nostalgic for earlier times but then again nostalgia ain't what it used to be.
Posted - 06/05/2013 : 00:47:01 Four from the weekend. Bell Bottom Blues - Derek & the Dominos - Layla etc.
Black Friday - Steely Dan - Katy Lied
Hard Nose the Highway - Van - Same

Posted - 06/05/2013 : 00:18:33 New to the forum but hope I can put in my tuppence worth. Following on from the Nick Cave thread, I would urge you to check out "Murder Ballads" and the tour de force "O'Malleys Bar" the nearest thing to acting you will get on audio.
Posted - 03/05/2013 : 15:55:52 From the latest LOW cd The Invisible Way, the final song TO OUR KNEES.
Posted - 30/04/2013 : 21:46:52 Albany Down - You Ain't Coming Home..............Absolutley epic. Currently on constant rotation in the car. 2nd track in on freebie CD with current issue of Classic Rock The Blues magazine. First I've heard of this group , this is off their latest [ second ? ] album , will be buying both. Memo to Bob , well worth a spin on the Sunday show. Regards ,
Posted - 08/04/2013 : 11:40:59 From the Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds cd No More Shall We Part. The tracks - Hallelujah Fifteen Feet Of Pure White Snow. This is my first Nick Cave but not my last (2 on the way )

Posted - 05/04/2013 : 17:30:05 2 tracks from the Ace cd, Hard To Handle Black America Sings Otis Redding. The Staple Singers - Sitting On The Dock Of A Bay Etta James - I Got The Will
Posted - 01/02/2013 : 20:35:18 Two From the delightful Travis Linville ep, Sun Or Moon...The irrisistable "Lefty" and "Same Old Road", fabulous guitar and one of the best vocalists around. http://www.travislinvillemusic.com/index/
Posted - 26/12/2012 : 14:57:15 Jake Bugg - Simple as This. Have not really heard much new music that has tickled my fancy so to speak but I do like this young man. A lovely track.
Seasons Greetings to all
Posted - 24/12/2012 : 23:21:09 HUMANKIND - Judie Tzuke from last Sunday week's show.
Bob's hooked me into an essential purchase - AGAIN!
Posted - 22/12/2012 : 16:17:46 EDDIE VEDDER - Music For The Motion Picture Into The Wild. The track HARD SUN. Check it out
Posted - 27/11/2012 : 20:13:12 The more I play the Solomon Burke cd Nashville, the better it gets.
Posted - 05/11/2012 : 14:14:06 The opening track We're Alright Now, from the John Hiatt cd MYSTIC PINBALL. Another great album from Mr Hiatt matching last years Dirty Jeans and Mudslide Hymns.
Posted - 12/10/2012 : 09:41:46 Ah yes jrn, I love it when Neil Young rambles on a bit . Cortez The Killer must be my favourite Neil Young song of all time. Have still not bought Americana because of the God Save The Queen track as it really grates on me, but for just the one bad track why am I moaning.
Posted - 12/10/2012 : 09:23:09 They now have the 16 min Ramada Inn playing complete with video.
Posted - 12/10/2012 : 09:14:47 There were a couple of the shorter tracks on the Planet Rock website. They sounded great and raw. Some of the other tracks will be 12-16 mins long.
Posted - 10/10/2012 : 06:22:45 Have you had a listen to Psychedelic Pill then jrn? If so, where?
Posted - 09/10/2012 : 21:53:06 Couldn't agree more Ian. Another oldie release I'm really looking forward to is Neil Young - Psychedelic Pill. Double cd with some pretty long workouts on both discs.
Posted - 09/10/2012 : 20:50:53 From the Tom Waits album Bad As Me, the 2nd track RAISED RIGHT MAN. After his previous release Real Gone which was really heavy going, this album is much easier on my ear. Tom goes MOR? Not quite. We are getting some great releases from the old guys at the moment who are really coming up with the goods. Tom Waits, Patti Smith, Van Morrison, Bob Dylan, Mark Knopfler, Bill Fay, Garland Jeffreys, Tom Jones (check out Tom's version of Bad As Me on his album Spirit In The Room). What's goin' on?
Posted - 05/10/2012 : 22:52:00 Another song that's really getting to me. From The Coal Porters album Find The One, their cover of Bowie's HEROES. Saw them doing this live last week and the power and emotion that came out of it live was quite electric. Nice vocals from Neil Robert Herd in a great little band fronted by Sid Griffin of Long Ryders fame. Go and see them if you can.
Posted - 05/10/2012 : 21:26:29 The June Tabor & The Oyster Band album Ragged Kingdom has to be the best folky album I've listened to for a long time. Even the sleeve and artwork are spot on. A job to pick out a best track as they are all good. Think I'll go for the June Tabor box set ALWAYS and get it directly from her web site as it seems to be quite difficult to obtain elsewhere.
Posted - 24/09/2012 : 13:44:41 His voice reminds me of Michael Chapman back in the day
Posted - 24/09/2012 : 11:25:14 Bill Fay - Cosmic Concerto (Life Is People) from the album Life Is People.
Posted - 22/09/2012 : 02:08:39 David Kitt - What I Ask an oldieish track but I think one of my all time favourites. Just love the way it builds and builds.
Posted - 19/09/2012 : 19:52:14 Bought this on vinyl last week John and I think I'll have to buy the cd also. It's quite excellent. Why didn't anyone try and get him back into the studio years ago. Well done to the label Dead Oceans for putting the cash up and to Joshua Henry who approached him with the offer to make the record. Dead Oceans also agreed to Fay's stipulation that his royalties go to the charity Medecins Sans Frontieres.
Posted - 19/09/2012 : 10:47:10 Heard Bill Fay's version of Wilco's Jesus etc. on Jarvis Cocker's Sunday Service, it's absolutely beautiful Here's the song:
The whole album is streamed as well and comes highly recommended. Appreciate any comments folks might have.
Posted - 17/09/2012 : 19:56:12 The track BE MY HUSBAND, from the Nina Simone album Pastel Blues.
Posted - 14/09/2012 : 17:34:59 June Tabor & The Oyster Band - Love Will Tear Us Apart, from the album Ragged Kingdom.
Posted - 09/09/2012 : 15:23:02 "Mutt Romney's Blues" - from the Election Special album RY COODER.
A barbed attack on the republican candidate whose caused a storm earlier this year when it was revealed that when Mitt took a family trip he lashed the pet dog to the roof.
Clever lyric that makes relatively light of an appalling case of animal cruelty.
Ry Cooder's 5th album in a row that are all highly recommendable.

Posted - 22/08/2012 : 22:07:10 Are there any photos you can share with us Paul?
Posted - 22/08/2012 : 22:01:55 back in the day in my case [ teenage days !] mid 70s ! saw roxy play a number of times,each tour bryan dressed in a different guise ! i remember one tour i hired a local minibus with driver & 12 of us went off to hammersmith odeon [ stranded tour maybe] in those days you dressed up not down,excellent show,next morning back to skool.
Posted - 22/08/2012 : 09:03:08 Darrell Scott's "Hopkinsville" is a pure country gem, one of my favourite songs of the year.
Ry Cooder - Mutt Romney Blues
Stock Car G
Posted - 20/08/2012 : 10:40:03 Definitely an acquired taste and I absolutely couldn't stand Ferry's effete voice when they first came on the scene. Virginia Plain - what was that all about? However, they mellowed and so did I. The only album I own is Avalon but I have come to regard it as an all-time classic.
Posted - 20/08/2012 : 10:19:22 I was toying with the idea of going to see Roxy Music on the last tour, but wasn't prepared to pay the ludicrous prices at the O2 for rubbish seats at the back. They seem to be in the Van Morrison camp for ticket prices.
I have the recent vintage live album on CD, and had Manifesto and Flesh and Blood on vinyl at the time they came out. Out of the Blue is a cracking song in my opinion but they seem to be a bit of an acquired taste.
