Denny Laine: Holly Days





If you are a fan of Buddy Holly I recommend that you hear this offering from Denny Laine and Paul McCartney if you have not already done so. It is available on both Vinyl and CD and, alas, I only have the CD version. The interpretations are true to the originals but are, nonetheless, very interesting. The production is low tech which enhances the atmosphere and credibility of this album. I think that it is very fine and enjoyable and is a fine tribute to Holly. I enclose a copy of the details for your perusal

Ó Riada: Ceol na nUasal This is CD 2 in this 3 CD set





This CD has mostly vocal offerings but there are also a few very worthy instrumentals presented as well. This is a fine CD.

A very favoured album from days of yore.

Rick Wakeman The Myths and Legends of King Arthur




I’m taking a hiatus from classical at the moment. Anyway, I don’t think I’ve ever heard this recording. I have Journey to the Centre of the Earth and Six Wives of Henry VIII.

I love the concept of this album and there is some great music in there too but every time that I listen to it I cringe at the vocals: they are so appalling bad in places and for me let the whole album down.

Yes, that was the problem with Journey to the Centre of the Earth. I forget the vocalist’s name at the present moment, but I always wondered what Wakeman was thinking hiring this guy?

Agreed, the vocals being such an important and integral part of these performances.
