Is that Sound Machine in Reading? I've got some great stuff in there over the years.
Yep, that one - Harris Arcade. Loads of dross though. I could have picked up the first four Led Zeppelin albums and a BBC Sessions CD, and half of Tangerine Dreams' back catelogue at a pound each too, except I'm not a hippy. Shed loads of U2 as well (crap), Pulp & Blur (got the good ones).
It's always reassuring though when there aren't too many CDs you've already got.....
Hannah Peel & Will Burns - Chalk Hill Blue
I remember finding the Oxfam shop by the river very reliable too. I think I got the first Rjd2 album in there for £2.
Squarepusher - Selection Sixteen
The Beta Band - Hot Shots II
This is always worth returning to.
Band Apart - Band Apart
Pinkshinyultrablast - Grandfeathered
David Sylvian - Brilliant Trees
Old Town Road - AGAIN!!
Great album although Secret of the Bee Hives is my fave of his and prob in my top ten albums if all time .
Cheers for the tip, I'll check that out next. Really into this one (I've not heard it before).
I think it was his first after Japan great production and atmosphere . Red Guitar is very catchy on that . Everything and Nothing is a collection some songs remixed some alternative takes etc . It’s got Ride on it which Ive always played a lot and come back to.
yeah this is quality.
this one is just gorgeous.
Yup.That little short September just sets the whole album out , theres lots to discover its like a treasure trove and years ahead of its time.
I'll keep posting this fellows stuff untill I'm blue in the face
I've been nailing the Jansen / Barbieri album from '85 quite a bit recently too - peculiar musical direction of travel for all of them tbf...
I loved Kahns bass playing style as well , very unique. Jansen and Feiner are working as Exit North now the albums superb
John Ghost - Time/Traveler.
It's single reminds me a little of glass museum by Tortoise.
Joanna Newsom - Divers.
I don't often manage to pick exactly the right music for the mood I'm in (not at the moment anyway), or the best time to listen to this album, but this time it's both
Shame - Songs of Praise
How did this pass me by when it was released last year? I only investigated them after they were cited in a Fontaines D.C. review, and this is excellent.
Richard Dawson - Peasant
King Creosote - From Scotland with Love
Brian Eno - Apollo: Atmospheres & Soundtracks
Shame - Songs of Praise
Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs Present - Three Day Week: When The Lights Went Out 1972-1975
Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs Present - State of the Union: The American Dream in Crisis 1967-1973
Those are great time capsules of the period. I like them more as historical documents than to listen to though.
Have you checked their Paris in the Spring comp? The cover photo is amazing:
Yeh got that one and the first one English Weather, which IMO is probably the best musically.
Bob Stanley has also put together a series of not-bad compilations for Sainsbury's, which you can buy on heavy double vinyl as you pick up your weekly shop. Much more commercial than the comps above, but they've all got some gems
