What are you listening to in 2023 and why might anyone be interested?

I have heard a few Radiohead albums but I bought OK C on CD back in the day on the strength of the amazing reviews. I played it quite a lot at first but still scratched my head. Finally I came to appreciate it, as it, with the help of a bit of fishing line, helps scares the birds away from our vegetable patch. If others like it, then great. No offence meant.

Even cheap CDs of this wonderful album sound fantastic. Great late night listening. What a sax tone. Qobuz.

One of a handful (less than 5) of non classical LPs in the house when I was a kid. My father somehow acquired a test pressing when he lived in Sweden. The classical music never took with me but I’ve always loved this.

Next up is not a solo album from Gazza - but his joint effort - if you count some lyrics and vocals joint! - with Bill Sharpe.

Not his best but some interesting tunes and nice keyboard work from the Shakatak man!

Sharpe & Numan - Automatic

Last one tonight - still keeping to my Numan theme - but from just 10 years ago…

Gary’s fight with depression mimics my problems since losing my mum so this is quite a difficult listen but more than worth it

No, it’s me who’s confused. I just checked the CD. It’s the same as yours, although more orange.

I think this album was discussed before, because I remember saying then how good the RVG sound was.

Andy that caught my eye
Years ago a mate put on a CD lots of Mathew Sweet and really liked his stuff
There was a song called Angeline which was really great.
You would know that album it was on ?

Great choice Alan

I saw Alvin years ago on Worthing Pier.
It was a very foggy night and he was playing in a small room which held about 150 people.Tables and chairs and a bar at the back.
Just him and his guitar
He played 2 - 45 minute sets and told some great stories.

A great memory that night

This was great in the set

Catswhiskers has beaten me to it and BBC music magazine issued an acompanying disk of her Symphony 3 and a Concert Overture No 1. Comes with pieces with Eleanor Alberga and Errollyn Wallen.

On female composers, try searching for Doreen Carwithen. Quite a bit of hers on Chandos.

They filed the versions under “epic”, “rare”, “popular” … and it makes me crazy…
Anyway…anybody had the chance to listen to the whole thing?
Thoughts appreciated!
Thanks!

Audience. Friends, friends, friend.
I play their third and fourth albums on a regular basis (House on the hill and Lunch) but have overlooked this their second release from 1970. Surprised because it’s actually very good. Qobuz.
