Amorphis

Quality Finnish metal.
“A quiet secluded life in the country, with the possibility of being useful to people ... then work which one hopes may be of some use; then rest, nature, books, music, love for one's neighbour — such is my idea of happiness"

It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and leave no doubt.

An album I haven't listened to since (long ago) I owned it on vinyl:

nor in competing for the favor of wayward friends.

So many great songs on that album.  Would love to get ahold of a LP copy of that one.   :)

Beck: Morning Phase 48





This listen was prompted by a relatively recent query by George.

This album makes for very smooth, gently lyrical and easy listening. I particularly like the acoustic guitar playing on the album, where it is used; it is simple but effective. There is also a good vocal presence [including backing, harmony, vocals] here. It is a well produced album.

Such a lovely album, perfectly suited for winter listening.

From this set:



I only have one of her albums--Natural Woman--but I love it!  Is your collection on LP or CD Fergus?

Here:  Led Zeppelin's first album.  In o.k. shape but would love to find a better copy.  Thoroughly enjoyed it.

If you were ever considering another album by Carole King I would definitely recommend Tapestry, PD.
I have Tapestry on CD and the set listed above is Digital.

I looked again at my posting--my brain must have left my body while I was typing the other day!  I had meant Tapestry (which also includes the song, as you know, Natural Woman).  ::)

I have it on LP.

Thanks for the info about that set!  :)

Cheers, PD. I thought that you might have had some compilation album.
Nice to have Tapestry on vinyl.  8)

Will have to give it a clean up and see what kind of "treatment" I gave it when I was younger!  ::)
