  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    and I don't know the first thing about The Grateful Dead. Maybe that helps Warren Street Station, when I knew it
  2. I never realised..no wonder he had that odd smile and continually rocked in his chair
  3. Yes, I agree. Pleased to make its acquaintance
  4. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I was playing that at the weekend. The only one of the series I own
  5. The Johnny Scott Quintet - Communication [Columbia] Tight arrangements, flute, harp and the marvellous Duncan Lamont. As it says on the sleeve "File under: Small Groups (Modern)"
  6. The Herbie Mann Nonet - Flute, Brass, Vibes & Percussion [Verve]
  7. The Afro-Blues Quintet Plus One - Introducing [CBS UK] Never heard of them before and purchased with the Thomas above. Reckon they must've come from the same collection. It's a Soul Jazz fiesta here this afternoon. Where's The Magnificent Goldberg when I need him for education about these albums?
  8. The Joe Thomas Group - Comin' Home [Buddah/Polydor UK] impulse purchase in a shop this afternoon. Enjoying it a lot more on second spin
  9. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Ok folks, I've tried to find the online discussion about the Vick Pure Pleasure and completely failed, sorry. So I may have cast unfounded aspersions but I remember it was a discussion about the relative merits of PP reissues and the Vick wasn't getting the same positive responses that others were. It wasn't being trashed just "not as good as some of the others". I have to say that every review I've just now visited in an attempt to find these comments has been roundly positive. It may also be that this extended UK summer is getting to me

    I'm looking now, will PM if I find it again. I know I'm not imagining it as I was really excited by the prospect and I'd been impressed by one PP reissue so was surprised
  11. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I hope I'm not too late here but I was all for doing the same until I read a number of comments about the quality of the PP reissue. I can't think where now but will see if I can find the references
  12. upcoming chicago events

    Unbelievable! That's got to be worth a visit, lucky you if it coincides with your trip Some really good names in there that I recognise from International Anthem releases and elsewhere and a good number I don't recognise at all
  13. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    It was surprisingly diverse club-wise wasn't it? You'd expect RM, Barca, PSG, Bayern (and maybe Atletico or Man City) to have more representatives in a WC final. Probably the Croatia effect, not so many of their players at the top rank clubs

    I don't know about the final (my brain gave up) but the 3rd place play off was like a Spurs training match there were so many of them on the pitch This has long been a bugbear of mine for ages. The inability for English players to see beyond the Channel. I'm convinced our national team would have performed so much better over the years if more had exposed themselves to other cultures, footballing or otherwise. There really hasn't been any notable exports since the days of Lineker, Gascoigne, Waddle etc that I can think of However, only yesterday I was reading an encouraging article that listed at least six players from recent England age-group winning squads that are now playing in Europe, perhaps most notably Ademola Lookman at RB Liepzig. With opportunities for first team match time so limited at most Premiership squads I'm hoping this becomes a greater trend and that we see the the positive outcomes in the national team as soon as possible. I'm confident that Southgate's a manager who would encourage such development.

    Me too. Once I heard it was them rather than some drunken fans I applauded the action from afar
