    Been listening to Andy Robert's excellent 1970 album Home Grown this evening!

    Is that "our" Andy Roberts or the one that played on Roy's albums (looking at the date, I think I guess the answer)? Update on the John Martyn marathon... I'm nearing the end of the marathon, with The Tumbler now. I'm still convinced that the best versions of various classic Solid Air and Bless The Weather tracks I've heard are on the Titanic Town soundtrack. The production seems clearer on this album than on either the original BTW and SA CDs or the remastered versions. Looking forward to hearing my latest downloads from Joe Bonamassa and Jackie Leven :)

    Jackie Leven is a great story teller, both in song and on stage. Well worth seeking out live if you get the oppurtunity.

    It's the one that played with Roy (and Richard Thompson I think).

    Prog Rock CD

    This month PR has a CD album of some psychedelic delicacies to titillate our soundbuds [might stick it up as a Vine if anyone appreciates my exertions]. Some quite strange stuff there which I'm still trying to open my mind to....

    Been listening to some Neil Young today, it's been a while, plus some Bert Jansch classics, had the house to myself this afternoon, a perfect opportunity on a wet November Sunday to just relax and catch up on some old favourites, I must be getting old, I'm sure I would have enjoyed a very different Sunday 20 years ago!

    One of my favourite albums ever there Shaun

    I dug out Handmade Life by Chris Wood this weekend and was reminded what an amazing songwriter he is. It is well worth getting as I am sure all Roy fans will appreciate the quality of the writing and many similar themes to Roy such as injustice, growing up during the war, gardening (!) and a real swipe at capitalism in the excellent 'The Grand Correction'
