More music, more music:

Technique - New Order

The Sunlandic Twins - Of Montreal
'More music, more music' Is that a cop from 'Who Sell Out', Charlie? Or just coincidence?

Glad you're having a good break.
Yep, well spotted BBB. The Who and Pete's lyrics are hard-wired into my psyche it seems.

Thanks, yes I'm having a good holiday.

I'm up at 6.30 most mornings, but that doesn't stop me enjoying a glass or two.

I've heard good things about wines from Aldi, but I've never had a really good one before, this is pretty damn good though, and just £5.99.

If you're talking cider, then try either Broadoak's Bristol Port or Moles Black Rat, absolutely gorgeous.

And now...

I'm a cider man, but I don't go near most of what is loosely described as cider these days. I prefer still to fizzy, and fresh pressed juice, to ciders made from concentrate. I despair at the popularity of sh*t like Magners etc. etc.

I stopped at a cider farm on the way home from holiday one year (Somerset - where else!) and bought a gallon of scrumpy. Flat with something going on inside *biggrin* A bit like vinegar, but quite 'moreish'

Black Rat and Bristol Port are the nectar of the gods, not something to put on your chips. *biggrin*

So much off-task and cider-soaked meandering recently; you wouldn't catch Charlie and me wandering off the beaten track. Heaven forfend. Andrew Hill: 'Lift Every Voice'. Jazz with voices is prone to cheesiness, but this is Andrew Hill. Passionate tenor soloing from Carlos Garnett, beautiful voices and the cerebral and angular Hill. The Pretty Things: 'S F Sorrow'. Mono/Stereo. I played them back to back because I was reading a Steve Hoffman thread re this record; I hate to follow the herd but, in this case, the stereo is indeed a better listen than the mono. Unusual really; normally it's mono every time but the stereo S F Sorrow is alive and awash with colour and vitality whereas the mono is a rather flat, black and white affair. Most odd. Great record either way. The Pretty Things: 'Emotions'. The Pretty Things: 'Singles A and B's'. Includes the wonderful 'Defecting Grey'. Lisening to that under the covers on Radio Caroline blew my mind, baby. Still does. Procol Harum: 'A Salty Dog'. The dog's. The Fifth Dimension: 'The Magic Garden' and 'Stoned Soul Picnic'. Impossibly cheery and buoyant. The Association: 'Greatest Hits'. As above. Nice. John Coltrane: 'Coltrane Jazz'. Much better in mono. Miles Davis: 'Milestones'. As above. Miles Davis: 'Kind Of Blue'. As above.

Quite right Jim, what are they all on about. I thought this was a vinyl thread.

Currently:

Skeletal Lamping - Of Montreal

False Priest - Of Montreal

Oh, Inverted World - The Shins

Nothing Can Stop Us - Robert Wyatt

King Kong - Jean-Luc Ponty

Jim, you've got an impressive set of Pretty Things records there. And yes, Jazz in mono, always.

Charlie and Jim (It's like an episode of Bergerac)

For your information, it's been proven that a good cask cider at around 7% improves the SQ of vinyl considerabbbbbbbbbbllllyyyyyy. *biggrin*

Hey Jim, I've been looking out for records by Andrew Hill since hearing an episode of Radio 3's Jazz Library dedicated to him a few years ago. Are there any albums you'd particularly recommend?

Hi. Yes there are a few; these are my favourites:

'Black Fire'

'Judgement'

'Andrew!!!'

'Lift Every Voice'

'Point Of Departure'

Any Blue Note record with Andrew Hill is worth having, even if he is just part of the band. Always interesting.

Hope this helps, although it's only a personal opinion of course.

Regards.

Well, Charlie, I could have just left it like that and maintained the illusion that they were all first pressings on Blue/Black Columbia, but, alas, this is not the case. The only original I have is a copy of the first lp. The mono 'SF Sorrow' is a Snapper reissue, albeit a very nice one; the stereo 'SF Sorrow' is part of a twofer on the Rare Earth label which also features the wonderful 'Parachute' lp. 'Emotions' is a Dutch 1970's reissue. Along with 'Dusk Fire' and 'Shades Of Blue' by Ian Carr/Don Rendell, original Pretty Things records sit atop my wanted list...not that I make lists!! As each of these goes for oh £400-£1,000+, I might just settle for reissues and cds. That's the problem with collecting records: once you've got quite a few, the only ones left that you really want are very expensive because they are very rare and usually, if they're British, in Japan! Would I pay that much? Of course I would!!!!! I'd just starve for a month...no problem!

Regards.

Thanks, Jim. Some of those titles are familiar and I think some were featured in the R3 profile, so will be the ones I liked the sound of. Will look out for them.
