:cry: Not able to listen to vinyl this bank holiday weekend, as my turntable is at the repair shop. It was turning backwards
You could have got the hidden meanings from Black Sabbath and other heavy stuff then.

Tracy Chapman - Tracy Chapman,

What a fantastic album song 4 side 1 gets me every time Behind the wall.

I shall end the night with The very best of John Denver.

A great playlist Jim. I love three of those LPs ( don't know the Welsh/Scandanavian sounding one or Dylan T reading his own work). What's the former?

I had a friend over for a beer/curry/vinyl/football session and we played these, from what I can remember:

Early Recordings - Link Wray (a cracking mono repress)

Best Of Booker T & The MGs

Pale Green Ghosts - John Grant

Sorry I Made You Cry - The Czars

Giant Steps - John Coltrane

The Driver - Buddy Rich

Aja - Steely Dan

And then skip loads of maudlin Ben Folds & Neil Hannon songs.

Arc of the evening: upbeat, downswing, up again and then too many beers to make sense/care.

That's a rather nice playlist too, Charlie!

Tír na nÓg is an Irish folk band or were an Irish folk band around1971-174 period, very popular live and they made some low-key,Nick Drakey, Donovany sounding records but with rather more humour than either of those two artists. This is their first record which is such a period piece that it's the early 70's and I'm sitting around in some University hall of residence every time I play it; the only other record that really does this is 'Chameleon' by The Famous Jug Band which is, incidentally, a very lovely lp.All of their records are worth hearing but they aren't exactly essential, just pleasant time pieces with good tunes, guitars and decent voices. This reply gives me a chance to announce that I've been listening to:

Ray Charles-'Yes Indeed.'

Ray Charles-'Genius+soul=Jazz.'

Strawbs-'Strawbs.'

The Flock-1st album.

Thanks for the lowdown Jim. I love those records that take us to that specific point and mindset on our lives. All music is capable of transportation to some place or other but only certain special songs/albums can conjure up such specific reveries/demons/reflections.

The first Ray Charles LP you listed is nestling in the racks of my local vinyl shop. A £20 re-issue. My only reason for not purchasing is price. I spent £30 on used records yesterday and came away with some gems. The price of new vinyl is steep. Market driven forces etc . . . blah, blah, blah.

Currently playing:

football in the garden with my two young sons.

I only buy used records, Charlie and have done for a while now, barring the occasional must-have lp. The price of new records being ridiculous is one reason, but I think I just prefer older stuff. I like a lot of new music but I don't feel the need to have it on record.

'Yes Indeed' which is a reissue, Atlantic Special label, cost me £6 yesterday. It's not mint but it plays well enough. It's actually a really good Ray Charles lp; his voice is terrific throughout. Great band too.

'Currently playing:

Lovely.

Genesis - `Foxtrot` Like the remaster from a few years ago but you still can`t beat the vinyl experience. Special album.

For my money, Genesis didn't make a bad album :)
Well said Freddy! Was just thinking about the line-up the band had in the early-mid 70`s. A LOT of talent and creativity. Whilst saying that my favourite is `Trick Of The Tail` after Gabriel left but there you go!

For my money, they most definitely did. Everything post-Gabriel for a start. :p

Hi BBB, have you heard `Trick of the Tail` and `Wind and Wuthering`?
No, but my comment was made with my tongue firmly in my cheek. I've never heard a Genesis album ever, though I did hear a little of the very very early stuff, which sounded quite good, and I do like the odd track.

In response to the "Genesis never made a bad album" remark, I'd counter with the Calling All Stations. :p

Ha! Okey-dokey (no idea how you actually spell that!) Anyway, isn`t it great listening to music late on a Sunday night and not have to worry about work tomorrow? Good days!

P.S. Change of subject but I saw you at the theatre in 1985 in `Run For Your Wife`! It was good but you can`t beat `Carry On Camping`!
