  1. What music did you buy today?

    On my list for Bandcamp Friday tomorrow, the one track I sampled was outstanding
  2. Ha! As a callow youth I loved Molly Hatchet for a couple of years. They were the highlight of one of my visits to the Reading Festival. Didn't they have about eighteen guitarists? At that time my hierarchy was Lynyrd Skynyrd Molly Hatchet 38 Special Black Oak Arkansas Marshall Tucker Band I was young, impressionable and Punk hadn't happened yet And now back to Latin Jazz...
  3. The All Things Van Morrison Thread

    An entertaining, if not very positive review of Van's latest https://www.theguardian.com/music/2021/may/06/van-morrison-new-record-project-volume-one-review I have to say it highlights a number of traits that I feel have been apparent for nearly twenty years but it would seem somewhat amplified on this release. I will give it a go but I'm not holding out much hope

  19. I like that description and completely agree although I don't really know enough about Hermeto yet - this will be rectified . Like the others there's a seeming totality to the music, it's concepts, conception and realisation. as for "Hommage" - if I don't like it it will be the only Hill out of very nearly all of them that I own that I don't like, so I'm pretty confident. I think I may have heard it a few years back.
  20. Alice Coltrane 8xSHM-CDs; 16 June '21

    Pleased to see Translinear Light on the list. I somehow missed that first time round
  21. Just plugged a "Hommage" sized hole in my collection, thanks for the prompt. I completely agree about the other two. How are you enjoying the Hermeto?

  24. Thanks, Kings Cross is nearer and I don't have to survive the H&City line to get there. Scarred for life by commuting to Westbourne Grove
  25. Not managed to get out and shop yet but it won't be long Has HJ West got a big used section now? Always seemed to focus more on new vinyl recent years. The Kings X branch certainly had a nice used selection pre-lockdown
