True Love Cast Out All Evil - Roky Erickson with Ockervil River, brilliant, don't be put off by track one which sounds like it was recorded from the inside of a biscuit tin. Plus you get a truly moving set of sleeve notes that make you realise how remarkable it is that he was able to revive his musical career and make this album.

Hi nocheese. Back to TVZ. I think Drama Falls Like Tearsdrops is an excellent overview - first Townes stuff I bought. Abnormal's a bit creaky. Of his later stuff, his last (I think) No deeper Blue is a fitting swan-song and he has a sypathetic band behind him to beef it up a bit - but it's out of print and can be expensive whether new or used. Live At The Old Quarter is one of his best live recordings - before the "disease" kicked in properly it would seem. And A Deeper Blue, The Life & Music of TVZ is an excellent read.

Cheers just for now - off to that wedding I told you about yesterday.

Thanks, Johnny - enjoy the wedding - the setting will be stunning.

I never imagined I would be posting this, but I'm listening to The Performance by Shirley Bassey. Some great covers, and so much more subtle than I would ever have given her credit for. Standout out track is Rufus Wainwright's 'The Apartment', and it won't surprise any of you to know that it comes courtesy of Lez.

Small correction nc, although some songs on The Performance sound as if they've been around a while, none of them are covers. They were all written specially for Shirley Bassey and this album.

Was this the album I caught a bit of a TV prog about recently? Alan Yentob?
A good wee bit of TV I thought.....

Yes, really enjoyed it. Never a Bassey fan, but that album's quite different, there's a sort of wistful nostalgia about it. I think the songwriters have been very insightful.

Brass Neck - told you you should have patented the concept!!

From yesterday's Times:

'iBike - Apple has submitted plans for a 'smart bike' concept, which would deliver information such as a rider's heart rate and bike speed direct to an iPod'

On my iBike i don't need fancy gadgets to know the heart's a-pumpin' overtime and the speed is slooooooooow!

Where would they put the sensors? A probe instead of a seat?!!!

Kevin Tihista - Red Terror (I think this will be a grower)
The Mummers - Tale to Tell (we've got a style and we're sticking to it - in a good way)
Various - Here come the Nice (A mod soundtrack)
