As to John Smith I listened to him last night!, recommended by Discovery feature on Spotify. Which also found Kate Rusby – 20 which you probably will like if you have not heard of her already!! Duet with Paul Weller on Sun Grazers
Cheers a pleasure on the blog I’m honoured, you certainly inspired me to listen to a different type of music and thoroughly enjoying it.

Great stuff, that's really rewarding to hear.
I posted the Kate Rusby album the other day... definitly on my Amazon wish list.

Michael Jackson - Thriller
This sounds really impressive through a good pair of earphones - there's so much detail and 'layering' of different sounds in this track which tends to go unnoticed when listening to it with speakers.
Turn it up loud and the bass on this song sounds really good with a subwoofer too.

Sony NWZ-A847 64GB Walkman > Westone UM3x
The sound of rain.
This is probably because the recording engineer was the Legendary Bruce Swedien and he uses Electrocompaniet amplifiers in his studio exclusively . He also takes his Electro amps with him if he has to record anywhere else in the world , he will not use any other amps .

Pleasure Electro... I'll always tip you the nod when I hear something I think you'd like.
Ah, a fellow Boss fan. I've been listening to this a lot, live in my parish Hammersmith in 1975.
What classical music are you listening to?
Patrick Park – Come What Will
This guy's got something.
"Silence and storm"
Puressence "Don't Forget To Remember"
A very underrated band IMO. Their eponymous debut album was played to death I'm not ashamed to say, and when their second album, 'Only Forever', was released 2 years later it was equally as captivating. Their 'sound' (to me) is as fresh now as it was in 1996.
Jono McCleery – There Is
Electro, if you haven't already come across this guy, give it a listen.
