  1. Now reading...

    A charity shop impulse buy, a quid well-spent I'm enjoying it a lot; no bull, but a very well-assembled collection of interviews with / recollections from various people who were obviously around at the time. Sports biographies are often really dull, but this one is up there with the Leo McKinstry book on Geoff Boycott and the John Hennesy bio of Alex Higgins. Two names possibly largely meaningless to the non-UK board memebrs!
  2. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    I have this one (picture isn't my copy however - I guess this is a Spanish version, mine is French)
  3. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    I never knew until a coupe of weeks ago that he was Gideon Coe's dad. Anyway, is that worth the price tag?
  7. My dad's stock reaction to any new and happening band I was into, back in the 80s / early 90s, was "heard it all before", "nothing new under the Sun" etc. I admit I feel much the same way these days, a rite de passage I suppose. Edit: just had a listen to a couple of songs on Youtube. It was very derivative, but there are obviously a couple of generations of folks out there who probably haven't heard anything like it before, and for whom it hits the spot. Who am I to rain on their parade?

    Screamin' The Blues - Oliver Nelson I generally don't care much for Eric Dolphy (funny, other-worldly sound) but I think he works with Oliver.
  9. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Art Pepper plus Eleven, possibly the thinnest vinyl ever!

    There was a thread on here a few years ago, in which members were asked to come up with jazz album titles which you would never see, or were rejected and so on. Someone came up with "That's Where It Is" for this album. To this day, whenever I see this LP it makes me chuckle

    Around 1/3 the way through Ralph Ellison's "Invisible Man".
