Good to see there's another Husker Du fan on the forum!

Delivered today:
Foo Foo and the Boy - H2C - I can send Cymbiosis' copy back to them now!
Dimitri from Paris - In the house. This is upfront house/disco with all sorts on it. Recording's a bit fierce but still groovy...
Voodoo Child (Moby) Baby Monkey. Very Moby if you like that sort of thing.

It's been a while since I listened to any ACR. I used to have plenty of it when I was younger and had a Thorens TD160, but it all went west in The Great Vinyl Robbery and I never replaced it for some reason.

Soul Jazz Records have done the decent thing and re-issued several (maybe all) of the ACR back catalog, including some extra tracks.

Well worth a few quid of anyone's hard-earned, if you ask me.

Alex,

I have the Graveyard & the Ballroom 'Cassette in the purse' on the first time round, then on CD in the 90's and finally on vinyl in 2004!

I have stuck with ACR all through, even in their 'noodly jazz funk' plain vanilla dance music phase when they were on Rob's Records.

Bring back Simon Topping i say.

YLT are so great and my vocabulary is so limited that I can't say enough nice things about them. That album and "And then nothing turned itself inside-out" are both phenomenal and two of my favorite albums of all time. "Painful" is a notch lower in excellence IMO. I never bought "Summer Sun" as hardcore fans seemed to brush it aside but now you have me considering it...

[EDIT following lunch: I forgot that you're a completist. Early on they were a bit messy and not so dreamy. I don't recommend venturing any earlier than "Electro-pura", and if you get the soundtrack they did (I forget the title) let us know if it's good.]

Ludwig,

Your glowing review made me curious to read about YLT elseware and they seem just the job for me. Do you have "And then nothing turned itself inside-out" & "I can hear the heart beating as one" on Vinyl. If so, are they high on your gushometer?

A bit disappointed to read that "We're An American Band" isn't the old Grand Funk Railroad song Smile

I have them on CD (no TT here) and musically they'd be high on the gushometer if played on 8-track through a megaphone. "I Can Hear The Heart Beating As One" is near perfect, if that's possible.

Tomasz Stanko Quintet, Suspended Night. Lovely chamber jazz. A lot of the reviews have it pegged as similar to Kind of Blue, but it's more comtemorary than that. Some of it feels like a close relative to EST and the trumpet has a Kenny wheeler like tone - must be the ECM studio effect.


I bought this last week and it is a beautiful record. More sparse than his previous 'the soul of things' but great nonetheless.

A great record!

Is that Mum their new one? Any comments? I really liked their first two records, I've heard a track or two from the new one and wasn't entirely convinced.

Nightly Cares is the single from the new album "Summer Make Good" - supposed to be released April 12th.

Alex: do YTL hit the spot for you? I've still no got round to the Joy Zipper cd: is it still playing or has it slipped quietly onto the shelf?

This weekend fell victim to hmv sale syndrome. Went out to get a cheap copy of Leon on dvd, came home with:

Split by the Groundhogs - a mate "borrowed" my vinyl copy 20 years ago! Great 70's rock - but I forgot that I no longer like 70's rock Confused

Jaco Pastorious: 1st solo: awesome bass playing, lots of noodling

Elbow: Cast of Thousands: A lovely record, if a little grumpy mainstream

and then..
I'm Your Man, Leonard Cohen bloody aweful. I once heard Take This Waltz on a movie soundtrack , some adaptation of a Julian Barnes novel in french, sounded great. This, however, is dire - good songs, but horrible 80's pop arrangements.

Should've gone for the latest Tortoise, which I actually wanted to buy but left in the shop.

Don't you hate hmv sales?

I am really impressed with YLT. The two that I have are quite different - "And Nothing...." is more gentle, but both are excellent and are standing up to repeated playing.

Joyzipper is an essential purchase IMHO - it's really really good. That said, I am a My Bloody Valentine junky, and this is definitely from the same place.

I can't even go into HMV now, it scares me.

Today's choice was Sophia - People are like seasons. Which is also excellent.

My YLT count remains at 2. I am being cautious - it's a good time of year for new music, many bases to cover. This week I had an urge to replace my HMHB vinyl, so that process also began.

Electro Pura will be on an order soon. I also saw a bizarre looking collaboration between YLT and Jad Fair. Any idea what that was all about?

I had a scary car moment today when my commuting cd of choice for today (New Day Rising) was eaten by the CDP in the car. A screwdriver and a pair of tweezers liberated Mr Mould without any damage to the CDP or to the CD.

I'll be back.
