Sweet! That’s a damn fine release.

Thread duty -

Preordered Marillion’s Brave: Deluxe Edition:



I can’t think of any progressive rock album from the 90s that deserves the deluxe treatment more so than Marillion’s Brave. I could have easily included this album in my ‘Top 5 Favorite Rock Albums’.

I only owned Vulnicura as a download and it hasn’t been too long since Utopia came out.

Some fun finds a few minutes ago at Wax Trax Records in downtown Denver.

They are. The Girl From Uncle can be pricey, but this one was very reasonable.  I will buy any spy/crime music i see on vinyl even in crap condition and always hope for an upgrade later.  However, like yesterday, I was lucky enough to be able to buy my first and last copy of each.

Good for you. I am sure that you will enjoy them.

Ae NTS sessions seconds after they appear. Album 3 + 4 next thursdays. People, at least fans are complete brainmelted. May be Ae's magnum opus.

Bought, my 4th with Cesaria Evora.

It´s a relatively late recording, 2003 - hope her voice is still OK there. Got good reviews.

For me, landing a Neal Hefti Batman album is like turning the handle of a quarter gumball machine as a kid and getting the main prize behind the glass.‬

Quite shocking release! Eight (?) hours of new Autechre? Wow!  :o I feel I am not ready for this...  :-\

I don't know where to put this. Anyway...



On his YouTube channel the jazz guitarist Jimmy Bruno was working out of this book, so I thought I'd give it a try.
"You overestimate my power of attraction," he told her. "No, I don't," she replied sharply, "and neither do you".

To fill in the last gap in the Tears for Fears series:
… music is not only an `entertainment’, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.    RVW, 1948

Have been playing the other albums over the last weeks (in my car) and am especially fond of The Hurting (1983) and Raoul and the Kings of Spain (1995). Avoided this one, as the obviously 'too commercial' success of the late 1980s, but will see if you're right.  8)
