so it is, tim. would be good if someone (pressure sounds?) made chapters 1-4 available at reasonable prices, or as a boxset? collection.

Cry Tuff Dub Encounter Chapter 3 - Prince Far I & the Arabs

Curiously listed as vol. 3 on 'zon. No matter, this is one of the very finest dub albums ever IMHO

i think, my album of the year, just shading mr cohen by a bawhair, Carnival Of Souls, an album that starts brilliantly and just provides so many highlights before it reaches the end. tbh, imo, it even eclipses 'the modern dance' and 'dub housing'.

ps - had to get myself a hard copy, jb, thanks for previous copy. :)

The Civil Wars - Barton Hollow
Alan Stivell - Renaissance of the Celtic Harp - retains its timeless quality
the eponymous Francoise Hardy
similarly Francoiz Breut- a wee bit disappointed on first listen
Aoife O'Donovan - Fossils -fine voice rather submerged by the band.
Copland: Rodeo / El Salon Mexico / Dance / Fanfare
Ingrid Fliter - Chopin: Piano Concertos 1 & 2 - impressive touch and interpretation of old favourites

Eleven the Hardway by Planet of Zeus, raw southern tinged stoner rock from Greece. Good band.

The single CD remastered versions of Led Zeppelin II & III, seduced by the 2 for £15 offer in HMV. Don't know why I bothered really as it's only reminded me that compared to the storming debut of Led Zep I, these two don't do much for me. I'd struggle to create a single CD of stuff worth listening too off the pair of them.

What Is And What Should Never Be
Living Loving Maid
Ramble On
Immigrant Song
Since I've Been Loving You
Bron-Y-Aur Stomp

that would work for me

The Last Great Hope by Electric Mary, superb hard rock from Oz.

I second that re PETER HAMMILL. His later albums certainly get as many plays as his early classics in this household. Can't think of many other artists I can say that about ;-)

Yes, Indeed T.F. - Hammill's always been out there & "up there" in my book since the early VDGG days.

His Charisma solo albums have stood the test of time - "In Camera" is still mysterious & magnificent - and though some of his later solo music is not always as memorable or accessible, it's all part an an amazing body of work that now stretches back over 45 years.

My most recent PJAH album is "Thin Air" - hearing "The Top Of The World Club" from that (effectively its title track) suggests that his search for reality & truth goes on....

glasgow central to my hoose = exactly 1 runthrough of Judge Not by the 'frank 'n' deano' of the dancehall - brilliant shared album of extended mixes in a dancehall style.

Just purchased the latest 2 Zep reissues. Interesting to hear the accompanying discs too. Must admit, a few of the tracks, there was barely any difference to the originals, but one track stood out. 'Four Sticks' has always, to me, been the mutt of the 4th album, and, shamefully used to skip over it on each listen of Zep 4. The reissue's 2nd disc has somehow reinvigorated the song for me, and it's now one of my favourites on it.
With this eureka moment I now declare the 4th as Zep's best (previously it was 2).

Will they do anything similar to Physical Graffitti?.....surely not.

Invented by Jimmy Eat World, still very much one of the best emotive rock bands around, polished and classic loud/quiet dynamics and tunes you can hummmmmm.

The Silent Corner and the Empty Stage - Peter Hammill

Wondrous stuff from under-appreciated genius.

More John Cale

Helen of Troy and Slow Dazzle

Why he's never received the same aclaim as, say, Bowie, his old sparring partner, or even Cohen, I'll never now.

Hey Derek, check your emails.

Currently: Al Di Meola - Elegant Gypsy [Vinyl] - I bought this on vinyl not long after it was released - still a pleasure to hear after all these years. Brilliant guitarist.

As The Valley Of Death Becomes Us, Our Silver Memories Fade By A Storm of Light, sludgey post rock of the highest order.

Family - Thompson, the joint effort by Richard, Teddy, Linda, Kami, Jack Thompson, James Walbourne and Zak Hobbs. Pretty good stuff, but has a pretty strange instrumental piece in the middle that may take a few spins for me to appreciate.

After that:

Wild Lament - Horses Brawl, folk duo from Norfolk who specialise in creating instrumental pieces on guitar, recorders and fiddle from fragments of mediaeval music. Rather nice but not something I listen to often.


Niacin by Niacin (1997) Audio CD - Niacin, instrumental jazz/rock fusion
