Roxy Music Avalon
Perfect for a cold wet Sunday
This after watching David Bowie: Finding Fame on BBC Two last night.
I thought it was a terrific programme G.
After mentioning ITC, it seems apposite to play this two-CD set of music from the studio’s various hits:
On vinyl. Having fun revisiting the vinyl box set on the new deck.
ELO - A New World Record, on Japanese vinyl. Not listened to this in a while and it’s good to hear the headline tracks in original context as opposed to the GH compilation I usually reach (stream) for. Sounds good on this pressing too.
Robert Cray - Strong persuader
A classic from Robert Cray. It has been a while since I last listen to this one.
ELO - Disvovery, on first UK vinyl pressing. A little more ELO! Have a lot of afffection for this album as it was played a lot around the house when I was a kid - this exact copy in fact, as it belonged to my Dad. Amazing how a record can take you back.
Etta James - Blues To The Bone.
One of the all time great blues voices, this album of standards is simply great.
There’s a heap of her output down the years, including this album, over on Tidal, so do yourself a favour, and have a listen.
I’m soooooo enjoying this Album particularly with the new playback which is superb. There is often a kind of sadness in her voice which makes the music very emotionally charged.
Just wonderful, check out her live performances on YouTube. She mentions how she is more husky, but has still got the high notes as she has got older.
I’m watching England and listening to Natalie- heaven. YouTube later! Thanks Gazza.
