    On another forum I visit, there is a thread called "Album For Today" it's a great thread for finding new & recommended albums (Not new in the just released sense, but new to me) from artists I have listened to a little over the years, and also bands/artists whose music I've never heard, and from old classics to new stuff. I thought it might be a good idea to start a similar thread here, just post an album you'd recommend that you've listened to today.

    I don't have Salty Heaven but do have

    Riverside
    Acoustic Motorbike
    Turf
    Tribe
    Innocence
    Eleven Songs

    and would recommend them all.

    Today I have been mostly enjoying this

    I'd second that recommendation, although it might be worth pointing out that it was released on this side of the pond under the band name 'Poet and the Roots' rather than using LKJ's own name - both the vinyl and CD versions that I have use that name and it is still for sale that way

    For myself I'd like to recommend another alter ego release:

    The Dukes were actually XTC in disguise, and this is a slight cheat because 'Chips From A Chocolate Fireball' is actually a compilation, being an amalgam of both the 25 O'Clock EP and the Psonic Psunspot LP

    This is really buttering my muffins at the moment, from 1975.

    y,know, Adam, I never realised that was you, duh!

    Was listening to 'Burlington Road' last week and enjoying it too!

    Today: "Removal Music" by friendly Liverpool retro-futurists Mashemon

    Live at the 1979 Havana Jazz Festival, with guitar legend John McLaughlin and Miles Davis drummer Tony Williams, also Jaco Pastorius on bass. If you like The Mahavishnu Orchestra and jazz fusion, then you'll love this. :m8:

    Best of John Martyn

    Having completed my marathon audition of all the Richard Thompson on my iPod, I'm now embarking on the even larger collection of John Martyn, in alphabetic order of album, so we started with the 4CD box set, "Ain't No Saint", carried on with "And.", continued with "BBC Radio One Live" and I've now nearly finished "Best of". I expect it will be "Best of the Rest" next, followed by "Bless The Weather". Perhaps the Harpers will get the treatment next :m8: Were I to interrupt this sequence, it could conceivably be with some of the albums mentioned heretofore in this thread. I haven't got that particular Luka Bloom album but do have most of his others mentioned earlier.

    Good thread, Shaun. My first visit to the forum for ages...

    Travellerman Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    Enjoy the John Martyn, I came in late on that one but there are some fabulous songs. Bless the Weather and Ain't No Saint are definite highlights :D

    Spirit - Potatoland

    Went to see Spirit live at the Cambridge Corn Exchange in the 80's, they were the support for Wishbone Ash, crazy days! :sifone:

    Spirit and John Martyn

    I'd have loved to have seen Spirit. I remember turning on to them in about 1976 and subsequently acquired a best of album.

    Update on my John Martyn marathon: I've just gone through The Hidden Years and am now on In Session - superb mid 70s BBC stuff, soon to be followed by Inside Out - more of the same! :)

    Glorious Fool followed by Grace & Danger was good too ...
