  1. Sun Ra House Falling Apart

    Yes, that’s right. Didn’t Danny Ray Thompson run the shop too? Echoes of ‘Stella Street’.
  2. Sun Ra House Falling Apart

    I wonder if that corner grocery store is still there selling intergalactic confectionery and (most likely long since discontinued) selections of Saturn and Thoth LPs?
  3. Chris Barber, R.I.P.

    The ‘3 Bs’ - Barber, Ball and Bilk.
  4. Chris Barber, R.I.P.

    RIP. An important, influential early figure on the UK scene and also very open to influences (he recorded with Harriott). Due to tour as late as 2019 until that was cancelled by a fall, with his ‘Big Chris Barber Band’. Duo gig with Tony Crombie?
  5. Covid vaccination: poll

    Did they throw in some baby powder with that?
  6. Covid vaccination: poll

    Just booked both of mine. The first one in a couple of days time.
  7. Ralph Peterson Jr. RIP

    Very sad - I chatted to him briefly once as a young guy. At the time it was looking as if he might be coming up to Canada to take up a college teaching job which didn’t happen in the end. Caught him a few times with Don Byron - RIP.
  8. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Interesting. I recall the Scott bio mentioning that Majorca stint in the 60s with Graves.
  9. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Pretty good. I have the Rendell/Carr on preorder too, the Russell is on the cards.
  10. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Incredible that the music survived - the BBC sessions were ‘assumed lost’ until they turned up in the Hiseman archive. And in such good fidelity too.
  11. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    A real find from the Hiseman archive and another excellent release from this label.
  12. Your audio equipment?

    I had one of those sweeper things on my old deck in the 1970s - can’t say it was much use.
