Recently I've been listening to the new Dimmu Borgir release, 'Abrahadabra'; Opeth 'Live at The Royal Albert Hall' (totally gorgeous on vinyl) and various Boards of Canada LPs/EPs. Always a pleasure...
I might dig out some of my Rush records tomorrow as I've booked a lazy day in this Sunday, which is just what I need after a LOOOOONG week of night shifts! Yes, a bit of Moving Pictures and Signals tomorrow methinks!

I love that album, in fact I'm a huge PT fan. I'd love to buy their vinyl but I've got virtually everything they've ever done, all on CD and I just wont buy anything that I've already got regardless of format.

Definitely stuck in a 70's time warp tonight. One of my alltime favourite LP's.
Saw them last Tuesday at the Stables. No Jan but the replacement was pretty sh . Thijs is still as mad a hatter and nicely rotund but he can still play ( and at least he doesn't attempt the operatic stuff anymore)
On the now defunct Charly Records, some lovely blues from T-Bone.
I bet some of you blues fans have this, surely?
Not bad for a debut LP?
I can't think of many better opening tracks to an LP than "Break On Through".
I'm a big Joe Cocker fan (leaving aside some of his more recent stuff) but if push comes to shove this is my favourite album of his from 1982. Just been listening to it with the old cans on my head (wife in bed asleep!) and the rythmn section of Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare just sounds sublime. As always Joe picks songs by some of the greats (Dylan, Newman, & Winwood to name but three) and puts his own inimitable style firmly on top. Not everybodies cup of tea I know but I just love his music from that period.

Not something that will get a lot play, but couldn't resist picking it up in charity shop for £1.50 today, and in absolute mint condition...
