Sometimes, just sometimes, you can find an album in HMV that doesn't make you go HOW F***ING MUCH! Today was one of those days

This was £16.99 for a double album (Gold Vinyl)

A career spanning retrospective of Barry Adamson, the former bass player in Magazine and The Bad Seeds. All solo material apart from one from each of the aforementioned and one calaboration with Jarvis Cocker

Another from the backlist I'm catching up on

John Dwyer related as he owns the label (Castleface) and Dawson was in the OCS line-up of Thee Oh Sees

Nothing like TOS though, folky and slightly jazzy.

Bridgid Dawson and the Mothers Network - Ballet of Apes

Quite lovely, I've been looking for a copy for a while

Bah, need a new stylus, I suspected it was on the way out yesterday. Today confirms it. I have new records to play..... Grrrrrrr

We used to have a Hi-Fi shop nearby, I could just walk in and buy one over the counter, now its search a number of websites. The one I usually trust was out of stock, another I use didn't sell it, so its off to random websites and hope they are trustworthy.

Absolutely storming double album of all the good stuff.

No idea of the age but a good guess is that I’d have bought it around the very early 80’s so it’s 40 years old and on a dodgy cheapo label… but plays like it’s new!

Right now I’m just listening to the drumming in Booker T & The M.G.’s Time Is Tight, damn, is that very very close to motorik?

I was really into the Cabs in the '80s. These days it's just Richard H Kirk on his own and he usually releases stuff under his own name but last year he returned with a new Cabs Album and followed it up with another. Bought them both at the weekend (paid too much in HMV but hey ho) and they are great. So influential on a lot of artists that followed in their path but these two albums are great, a real return to the great second phase of their career

For those that don't know, it's all analogue synths and samples, dark industrial electronics and interesting rhythmns

Cabaret Voltaire - Shadow of Fear (2020) and BN9DRONE (2021)

So had to go out this morning so with the sun shining, sunglasses on and this playing

It was only fitting :( 

Just hope the rule of 3 doesn’t apply…

Another 30p purchase, a 10 album box set by Readers Digest entitled A Festivasl of Light Classical Music. I'll buy shit like this all day for 30p (worth about a tenner and they do occasionally sell on Discogs)

I'm no classical music buff so this is perfect for me

avoided last year, when the price was about £25 each, a year on and there they were taped together in the sale tub of shame for £12.99 …

Opinion? I was actually looking at those the other week and they released 2 more on one of the RSDs this year.

I was playing them again yesterday. If I’d bought both at full price, hmmm. But both at that price was excellent value, a steal. But I think you only really need the first album, vol 2 doesn’t bring anything new to the party.

Glad I got them, it’s that sound from the really big sound systems of 10 or 20 years ago, so in my mind, quite modern, quite London.

There’s a ‘new’ Lee Perry on Pressure Sounds that’s fresh out, and that’s properly up my street. PSLP108.  I’ll be getting that when nobody’s looking (I’ve got a few hefty orders in for later in the month so I’ve blown my budget on stuff I haven’t yet got in my grubby little hands).
