  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Another LP in my collection due to your enthusiasm for later MJQ from a while back. Thank you!
  2. Pan Afrikan peoples Arkestra - Live At Century City Playhouse [Nimbus West] preceded by Damon Locks Black Monument Ensemble - Now [International Anthem]
  3. New previously unissued Horace Tapscott

    Arrived. All good things come to those that wait. 10 minutes in and it's sounding good
  4. Covid Vaccination Poll Update

    The bigger concern is that as community infection rates increase, and we have a government for whom that appears to be policy now, there is a greater likelihood of the virus mutating into new variants. Once again, previous experience is being ignored as the Kent variant appeared the last time community infection rates got out if control. Government gambling again...

    I've got that lined up too Both the Apples are well worth a listen. I was turned on to them by JSngrey's enthusiasm a while back
  6. Just dipping into this set and find it more than a little ironic that in a set of this size some of the tracks fade out

  9. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    I didn't think you did at all. I was just alluding to our luck at being the hosts. As you say, if we don't win this one all the others will be harder. Another 55 years probably I agree but I would say it's a minority of those fans in the stadium. The same minority who continue to boo the players taking a knee. Sadly a minority that has become more vocal over the last five years. They are a stain on this country but a sad reflection of other, greater issues and and are sadly encouraged, or at the very least not discouraged, by people who should know better. It makes me very sad and angry that they can make such a very poor impression. The irony is that the team they "support" are the living antithesis of these views. The way this generation of England players deport themselves (with a few exceptions) and the manner in which the manager presents himself is the best of this country. Apologies for going on at length but this is a subject that I feel strongly about. England as a country, and as a set of football fans, can and should be so much better than how it is projected. Back to the football...
  10. Goooooooooooooooooooooooooool

    Agree on both counts but someone has to be the host...

    Well that was a good match. Denmark played well but most of their chances were due to England errors. The amount of pressure England exerted on the Danish defence was very impressive. Was it a penalty? Of course it was Another step closer. England look so incisive going forward it's very impressive. Defensively they need to tighten up but the worry is midfield where they can become exposed by slick passing and fast breaks. Italy will be a real test but not one beyond this squad if all perform well.
  12. Just on the Bandcamp page for 'Lanquudity' and noticed this review/comment "pure freeform vibes" which to my mind just about sums up the our discussion about its currency

  16. Spot on. Strut realised that 'Lanquidity' could be more easily sold beyond Sun Ra fans than others of his titles, went for an over the top packaging and marketed it accordingly. They have never been an audiophile label as far as I can tell so not sure why anyone expects them to start now.
  17. Yes, it's a fascinating connection. Maybe Sharrock heard the "desert blues" somewhere My vinyl is dead quiet, not warped and of a standard weight. I don't have an original to compare to, unfortunately. The sound is good to my ears on the released version but is a bit boomy and unsubtle on the other. I'm no audiophile, as this blogger appears to be, and I'm happy to own this as Lanquidity is one of my favourite Ra's.

    Great match from a neutral's point of view. Some great play, especially by the Spanish but both sides lack a proven goalscorer (neither Morata nor Immobile score enough from the chances presented them) which would take them to the next level. Italy have been my team of the tournament so I was pleased to see them prevail. Copa America is on in the middle of the night so not likely to see it.
