A bit of Camera Obscura on vinyl. Lovely stuff.
Listening to Heathen album by Bowie. Not played it for a long time and some good tracks on it. Very mellow and laid back album but nowt wrong with that.
Got the best of Echo and the Bunnymen on now.
Never seen them live but what a great band they are.
Having watched Broken on tv over last few weeks I had to get out my nina Simone greatest hits and play 'I think it gonna rain today'. Superb...along with 'feeling good' wonderful tracks...such a powerful voice.
Have also looked up other performances of 'think it gonna rain today'...like Norah Jones and randy Newman but not keen on UB40s version...lacks feeling

I must admit I do like Puff Daddy's remix with Jimmy Paige, Come With Me, soundtrack to Godzilla too.
Agree with you there, BBR, would be cool to see them at Godiva, If theyre not too big still.
Used in many a Football ground and other mega sporting events too.
Sure does fit the bill.
Bad Boy for Life : P Diddy
Led Zeppelin : Whole Lotta Love.
Not sure but haven't they been on at the Godiva ?
You are correct, dagnabbit, in 2012
Echo and the Bunnymen headline Coventry's Godiva Festival - BBC News
Think the were meant to do it the year it got rained off.
Pretty sure Ian Mculloch did a solo set somewhere after that.
The Bunneymen may have done something outside of Godiva also, thinking maybe Motofest here.
I must have had one to many on Sunday as I said in the pub after that I'd love to see Metallica headline Godiva.That was met with laughter,and I said I'd get my coat !
correct, they played the Kasbah instead.
Some classical music...
The Monaco L.P. I'd forgotten how good it was. I love Hooky's bass sound.
Picked up 2 CDs from charity shop. Pet Sounds by Beach Boys and 18 Till I Die by Bryan Adams.What a bargain both 75 pence !
I love Pet Sounds. God Only Knows is beautiful and Carl's voice sounds so sweet. I love Caroline No too.
They came back and headlined the Friday in 2013, and if I'm honest I thought they were pretty poor.

I've never had Pet Sounds and hear its classed as an all time great album,so when I saw it in the shop I knew I'd have to buy it. I'll play it later and get back !
saw them going back a few years and thought they were poor as well but caught them at a festival last year and really enjoyed it. Think McCullochs a bit of a diva and it depends what mood he's in on the night.
Just listened to Pet Sounds. I like it and for when it came out is sounds fresh. As for being a classic and one of the best ever albums though I'm not so sure ? Who makes these claims ? I rave about Fire and Water by Free and In Search Of Space by Hawkwind. But I guarantee someone will say both of those albums are overrated !
Saw a CD in the shop by the Guillemots called Through The Windowpane. Never heard much of their music so bought it and played it today.Really enjoyed it some great tracks on it and I recommend them to first time listeners like me.
Its a strange album and a different albeit very seldom listen for me but now you have mentioned i will dig it out - Fat old sun very nice on a summers evening - birthday yesterday bought the Govt mule album Revolution come Revolution go ! and the first Psychadelic Furs album
Love a bit of the Furs.
Richard Butlers voice so distinctive!
I've always liked Atom Heart Mother, particularly the Suite as it is so different compared to some of their albums. I listen to it every couple of weeks I would guess.
I know what you mean I felt a little underwhelmed when I first heard it at school. It was hyped even back then. You can blame McCartney for a lot of the hype.
Saying that there are some excellent tracks on there and as I mentioned previously God Only Knows, for me, is one of the greatest and most beautiful and melodic songs every written.
Me too. Bought all their stuff though the late 80s stuff is a little too "American" for me so rarely listen to that anymore.
The Mighty Avengers, a Coventry band:
More Mighty Avengers, and some cute 1960's dancing girls:
Jigsaw, another Coventry band. From 1968. This was a great dancing song:
Meet Glen Campbell by...............Glen Campbell.
A collection of songs from other artists that he has recorded. Genuinely suprised how good it is.
that looks familiar, who is it?
haven't listened to them for a while, love the song trains to Brazil, think I'll give it a listen later.
Saw them years ago at a festival, afternoon slot, lovely sunny day, perfect setting to watch them.
Is this the case for 2016-2017 ?
Fleck, Armstrong, Maddison, Murphy, Cole, Stephens, Bigi, Ramage, Fortune, Hunt, Henderson, Cargill, Tudgay, R...
Metallica= Nothing else matters
Im not going to agree with everything he says but its worth a listen
No doubt Ali Bangura is one of them, anyone know the other 2?
Ive got a bit of nirvana the man who sold the world
