  On now on Beeb 4, the making of the album, followed by an hour of David Rodigan, the grandaddy of UK reggae.

Interesting prog on Primal Scream,  it filled in a lot of blanks 

Really looking forward to the David Rodigan set,  arie 

Really interesting program, loved the bit watching them with engineercutting the vinyl master.

Wings - Back To The Egg, the final band album before McCartney appeared to tire of the format.Seems to have undergone a critical re appreciation in later years.

I liked that album a lot way back in the day . . . just downloaded it myself. I've not listened to it in a few decades.

I've missed the last week or 2 of this thread and don't know if this has been posted; I'd assume it has.folder

The "remix" is not as severe as Sgt. Peppers (which we like too) - this is not a ding on the Sgt. Pepper's remix.  The sound from the hi-res download is fantastic.

The "Esher" rehearsal sessions are phenomenal and WELL worth hearing; it's a joy to hear the boys having so much fun together.  My wife's comment was really interesting; the George and John songs were still very much works in progress at Esher, and especially John was cutting up quite a bit during the rehearsals, but Paul's songs were highly polished - he played Blackbird in a form totally ready to go on the album. "Paul was always the perfectionist" she said.

The White Album was one of the first Beatles lp's I bought, and it's always been a favorite.

Listening to the February 1960 recording of the “Jupiter” symphony. In case you’re wondering, the Columbia Symphony Orchestra was really the Los Angeles Philharmonic for recordings done in LA, and the New York Philharmonic for recordings done in NYC. The conductor (Walter, Szell, Bernstein, Stravinsky, etc.) would then “hand pick” a few other musicians for the recordings. Another great budget box set from Sony.

Now Playing.........

Cowboy Junkies - The Caution Horses

Cowboy Junkies - Caution Horses

Margo Timmins (vocals), Michael Timmins (guitar), Kim Deschamps (lap steel guitar, pedal steal), Jaro Czerwinec (accordion), Alan Anton (bass) and Jeff Bird (fiddle, harmonica, mandolin).

Streaming on NAS........... kicking off the day with the Cowboy Junkies, fantastic vocals, lyrics and music. Margo has a beautiful voice and the group's third album features nine original pieces and one cover of a Neil Young song. This may be my favorite Cowboy Junkies album, love it!

Kaleo - A/B

I think it was Mike (MDS) who brought Kaleo to this fine place. This fell through the letterbox today, ripped and now marvelling at their relaxed, unpretentious but undeniable talent which shines through in this, their debut international release.

Genre? Icelandic folksy, bluesy rock. Bet you don't have any of those in your collection.

Thouroughly recommended.

Now Playing........

Dave Matthews Band - Crash

Dave Matthews Band - Crash

Streaming on NAS.............  going back 22 years in time to the '96 release of Crash which I enjoy immensely!  This was another band that was introduced to me by my daughter when she was in high school and recommendations continue to be passed back and forth. Dave and the band is sounding mighty sweet this morning!   Music and memories......fantastic!
