I have retreated to the Lakes (with tempremental internet thrown in) to attempt to sort my life out & help my brother with his guest house re-opening following the December floods.
Favourite music at the moment:
Ouroboros - Ray LaMontagne
It's a Jim James production (probably why I really like it more than other albums by Ray) and it shows. Trippy, very Floyd (Pink more than Keith) in the acoustic phases and less of Ray's bombastic voice, just a rather old hippy vibe and spaced out feel.
Good to hear from you....I need a retreat too; I seem to be in retreat this winter. Glad you're ok; I was a bit worried you'd not posted, but tempered by the knowledge that you're an intelligent and resourceful geezer.
'Bombastic voice'...I think you've nailed it...I have one of his albums, can't remember the title: I liked it but having said that, I didn't play it much. Maybe the voice is the issue....he's a decent writer though. I will definitely check out, 'Ouroboros' which, incidentally, was the name of a vegan restaurant and health food shop I used to frequent! How weird. Looking forward to it.
