"Midnight Cowboy" original soundtrack - simply brilliant and such airy space in the recording. Makes you walk with a limp Wink

Then Dawes " North Hills" for some 45rpm West Coast style.

I loved OTC, and for me Woods are another band to cherish. For every note of quaintness, there's a balancing drop of acid to keep the thing from becoming too sickly sweet. 

There's a touch more dissonance to Bend Beyond. And I love it.

RE: What vinyl are you listening to?

I had a whole day on Sunday listening to vinyl, it was awesome, I really got into Bowie again, so after a quick Amazon search I realised that I've never listened to 'Heathen', shocking I know, so I ordered that and the 40th anniversary edition of 'Space Oddity' both on vinyl, in preparation for his new album, so going to listen to them tonight.

I wish Bowie would do a similar vinyl box set to what the Beatles have just done, that would be amazing.

Billie Holiday - Lady in Satin.

This is the 1st time I've actually sat down and listened to any Billie Holiday, what an amazing voice, I will definitely be adding more to my vinyl collection.

Dusk At Cubist Castle is one of my all time favourite albums, just brilliant.

I've only just found out about the death of Bill Doss, very sad, and left me asking the question, Why? Why? Why not James Blunt or Robbie Williams?

I shall seek out Bend Beyond though.

It's an injustice, is it not. 

 

Cubist Castle is also in my top 50 LPs of all-time. Bend Beyond is coming up on the rails into that putative list. I'm listening to it at all times - in the car, on the kitchen iDock thing, my iPad at work but not surprisngly that much on my hi-fi for some reason. 

It's that perverse logic that indicates what a great album it is. Music over hi-fideltiy every time. 

Let us know what you think, if and when you get chance to have a listen.
