Recent Purchases

  • All Christmas presents but as such they were recently purchased, just for me rather than by me. And I'm delighted with them all:

    Aldous Harding - Designer

    Angel Olsen - All Mirrors

    Bent Knee - Land Animal

    Lamb - The Secret Of Letting Go

    Nils Frahm - All Melody

    Pip Blom - Boat

    Olsen and Bent Knee are especially good. Seeing Angel Olsen next month. Sadly, Bent Knee have only ever played 4 gigs in the UK so I don't expect to see them any time soon.

    Abandon all reason

  • Rick Wakeman - The Red Planet

    (I think the hype surrounding this album is completely warranted. Very much in the vein and quality as Six Wives and Criminal Record)

    Fairport Convention - Fairport Convention

    (I have most of Fairport's output from the late 60s and early to mid 70s but the debut was always one I skipped past for some inexplicable reason. Judy Dyble's recent passing spurred me to rectify that omission)

  • Anubis Gate - 'Covered in Colours' (2020)

    Martin J. Andersen - 'Victory In Motion' (2020)

    The Neal Morse Band - 'Sola Gratia' (2020)

    Neal Morse - Mike Portnoy - Randy George - 'Cov3r To Cov3r' (2020)

    The Tangent - 'Auto Reconnaissance' (2020)

    Jefferson Starship - 'Mother of the Sun' (2020)

    Nick Mason's Saucerful of Secrets - Live at the Roundhouse (2020)

    Rikard Sjöblom's Gungfly - Purchased all 5 albums

  • Just pre - ordered Phil Campbell and the Bastard Sons new album , We're The Bastards. ( Definitely veering towards them as the best currently going) . A real feel good band. I wanted the vinyl and CD so bought a bundle that also included a Cassette!! Maybe it boosts sales buy sticking one of those in .

  • Canadian singer/songwriter, typically referenced as a political, folk artist but his music is much too eclectic to be pigeon-holed as strictly folk. Easily among my 10 favourite Canadian artists.

    A fantastic guitarist as well.

    St. Vincent is also one of my recent purchases

    Also, let us know how the St. Vincent album is. I really like Masseduction.
