They are beauties both A - I never knew the Durriti's sounded like that,(had been expected angular clang) are they always that good or are there any recommended jumping in points?B - Which album is the BB's track from?And have you checked out the Sonic Execs for more of the same
PMA - His discography is huge and I'm still discovering it myself, but everything I've heard I've loved. There's a decent 'Best Of' which might be a good starting point and I suppose the 'if you own one thing' work would be the legendary 'Return Of....'.B - 'Surf's Up'.Clicking that link now...
For my money The Return of.. and Guitars and Other Machines. LC is good as well.
PM,If you shop around you can get the Sunflower/Surf's Up twofer for less than £5 and they're second only to Pet Sounds.
i saw that vini bloke last time i was up north - just by the old old factory office on palatine rd and had to stop him to tell him how lovely his records were. he was very nice.
Mick/Davy Grabbed Surfs Up today..Strange cover - I recognised it, but always assumed it was Wishbone Ash or Tull album..
Nice one PM; I'd steer clear of that awful Mike Love track though (5) - and the stupid one about the tree (8).The cover picture's based on this...
PS: Good for you Miss Ally, I'd have been far too shy to do that. Like I didn't say hello to Georgie Fame in our Sainsburys Local last week.
there's something odd going on here - i've just been digging out a georgie fame tune for the weekendx
I CAN SEE INTO YOUR MIND
Have you heard the 'Til I Die (Alternate Mix)? It's by engineer Stephen Desper who says he did it 'for his own enjoyment' and it's pretty damn good.BTW I saw Paul Weller in Woking just before Christmas but I didn't say anything in case he noticed I was carrying a Moody Blues CD.
I picked up Holland last year - magic in some places, mad in others - I haven't played it much since..Couple of other bits. Haven't got former Beach Boy Justin Lee Collins album Pacific Ocean Blue - should I?Nor Pet Sounds - I know I should, but never have..
I'd read about that other versh Mick, but didn't have it, so thanks - catch a wave! Pacific Ocean Blue? Crazy, fractured, coked-out, lush, indulgent, heartbreaking and lovely, and sometimes all at once.
