I see no picture in the long ships post (so I have no idea what or who that is, and I can't make much out of the Retrospective picture. It's where a few more words would say much more than a picture!

Ok will consider that for future posts - thanks. Posting pictures has become a hit and miss after Photobucket stopped there free service.

In anticipation of the new Public Service Broadcasting LP being released tomorrow, I just went on Qobuz UK and some of their other records are dead cheap: Race for space high res = £6, Live at Brixton = £4! Actually slightly cheaper on 7 digital. They must be doing some kind of promo for the new record, which I will buy tomorrow.

High Res Audio currently have a store wide discount of 15% until July 30th. Use discount code Sale2017 at the check out. Applies to reduced items also, as I just bought the HD version of Blondie's new album Pollinator at the reduce price £8.00, plus The Rolling Stones Lonesome & Blue..

Just working my way through the Qobuz 'Big Download Sale 2017' http://www.qobuz.com/gb-en/pag...-2017 primarily the 80% and 50% off all albums, of which there are close to 4,000, mostly obscure stuff (to me anyway). However, I did spot the first Bob Dylan album for £0.80 !!!!-  presumably out of copyright given the label. Well worth it alone for the track Baby Let Me Follow You Down.

There is a lot of classical stuff here and generally I fall into the Frank Skinner appreciation of Classical Music - Wow this is amazing the best thing I've ever heard, incredible, fantastic, oh no I'm bored, I'm bored, I'm bored, I'm bored........................... But I'd welcome any recommendations (in any genre), as there must be a few gems hidden in here.

Have look at the Naive Classique label particularly the Vivaldi and Handels Water Music - some pretty good stuff there at very reasonable prices.

Camlan - thanks I'll do some homework on the Naive label.

Richard Morris - excellent just bagged the Freedom Jazz France album (which I see Light in the Attic are re-issuing at a lot more than the bargain price here), Earth Blossom and another on the Heavenly Sweetness label by Don Cherry.

Three great albums and my total basket is showing £3.36 !!!!

I checked out the Qobuz sale, and although one might expect it to be pretty cheap in 2017, I was nonetheless a bit blown away to find an anthology of Rachmaninov playing various piano pieces for about a quid.  Naturally the recording is slightly ropey by today's standards, but to hear the man himself playing is just lovely.

Just to underline this recommendation. There's a ton of top rate Baroque stuff on Naive (Alessandrini, Biondi et al.) particularly for Vivaldi, though a mention for the superb set of albums Blandine Verlet made of the harpsichord works of both Couperins, there's also a ton of lute albums featuring Steve's fave, Hopkinson Smith, and what looks to be a cracking version of Handel's Giulio Cesare (his best opera in my thinking).

Most of the above under £4.

Absolutely Outstanding! - Thank You Dave J - this has got to be the deal of the year (so far).

You're most welcome, it's a cracking collection and I'm sure some kind if pricing error. It's £77.88 on Qobuz

Downloaded with HDTracks discount and sorted into individual albums with cover art. Then looking for Velvet Darkness. I see 7digital are doing this package for £11.99. Which beats HDTracks by a fiver.

£11.99 for nearly 100 tracks in 24/96 by the legendary Allan Holdsworth is just criminal.

Thanks Dave, that's a fantastic tip.

OK...this is an outlier...

Planet Mu, a left-field electronic label, have a sale on. If nothing else give a listen to the superbKuedo album Severant - a kind of modern take on Vangelis...even takes a theme from Blade Runner and updates it (Flight path),,,and it's a steal at £3.99 for the CD.

Thanks Nick, this sounds interesting just ordered the CD/download option.

Thanks very much for this - downloading from 7Digital now!

I must confess to having gone a bit Bert in the Qobuz sale (especially when combined with the Sublime discounts).

Something worth highlighting though, is this - Clearlight's Symphony II. It's a nice bit of French instrumental symphonic prog much in the style of early Mike Oldfield (even though it dates from 1990). There's a 20 minute track featuring Tim Blake, Didier Malherbe and Steve Hillage too.

And it's...£0.96p!
