Bought a couple of LP's today.
a couple of new ones -
Ed Sheeran, +. Yeah I know it's 'young persons' music but actually it's a very sweet little LP with some decent tracks.
Cinematic Orchestra, In Motion #1. Haven't listened to it yet but I always like the stuff they've done before.
Elliott Smith, An Introduction to.......
Michael Kiwanuka, Home Again. On 1st listen I'd sear this was some lost gem of laid back 70's soul. Very good debut LP.
Pink Floyd, Wish You Were Here
Some 2nd Hand mainly from charity shops-
Alexander Tucker, Portal. Soundscapes built on loops of 'fuzzy' electric & acoustic guitars, mandolins & other sounds overdubbed to build a wall of sound interlaced with his near ethereal vocals. I'm now a fan. Reminds me of Red House Painters, early Sun Kil Moon & Retribution Gospel Choir. Excellent.
Van Morrison, Saint Dominics Preview and Beautiful Vision. The former to replace my told old copy and the latter I have never heard before.
Them Featuring Van Morrison. A Decca compilation and pretty good it is too.
Serialement Votre. A collection of remixes of film and TV themes. Some good versions but not stellar stuff unfortunately.
Linda Lewis, Not A Little Girl Anymore. Not her best early LP but a few 'nice' tracks.
Johnny Cash, One Piece At A Time & .....Sings Precious Memories. Not his best work but OK if you are an ardent fan like me.
Frank Sinatra, Strangers In The Night & Some Nice Things I've missed
Neil Young, After The Goldrush[/u. Needed to replace my tired old copy.
[u]Average White Band, Feel No Fret & Benny & Us. I'm undecided on both of these
Pete Namlook, The Definitive Ambient Collection, Vol. 2. Kinda does what it says on the tin and I like it.
Pressure Drop, Front Row. More 90's ambient electronica.
Jeff Beck Group, Got The Feeling. Yet to listen
Rolling Stones, Tattoo You. Not them at their best
ELO, Face The Music. Yet to Listen
Colin Blunstone, Ennismore. Yet to Listen
Sade, Stronger Than Pride. A guilty pleasure to be honest
Jorge Santana, S/T[/u. Yet to listen
[u]Carmel, S/T & Everybody's Got A Little.....Soul. I always liked her and thought she was an underrated and underdeveloped singer.
