    Here’s the script, you have to have listened to them in the last week, what’s yer top 3?

    I’m going for:

    NWA straight out of compton, I mind listening to this when i was about 11, I thought to myself, what pish, fast forward a couple of decades, I’ve went for a relisten, great album! reckon I’m going to take myself on an 80s rap album tour next, have never quite got the whole rap thing tbh!

    Olatunji, Drums of passion, first ever recording of african drums in the 50s, tis **** brilliant!

    and Curtis Mayfield, Curtis! superfly has always been one of my favourite albums, venturing in to more curtis this week though, tis all good!

    Right, so lets be having them!


    My spotify search bar eagerly awaits some good replies….

    I’m going to go with:
    “django django – django django” (self entitled album)
    “Rizzle kicks – Stereo Typical”
    “Mos Def – Black on both sides”

    That’s my most played this week.

    I usually only get chance to really indulge myself and listen to full albums on Friday and Saturday evenings, otherwise it’s 6Music during the day, and shuffled tracks on the phone, but I’ve been on holiday this week, and I’ve had a download of Elbow’s new album, The Take Off And Landing Of Everything playing on the phone, and the CD arrived yesterday, so listened to it again last night, along with a couple of Handsome Family albums, Honey Moon, and Singing Bones, prompted by watching True Detective.
    Not sure what I’ll be listening to tonight and tomorrow yet.

    Don’t usually listen to albums really, mainly playlists so the only one at qualifies is Van’s Astral Weeks which I put on timer the other night to help get me to sleep….

    Which reminds, I must change that cd for something else.

    Mister P

    CFH – Tubular Bells is a great shout. That’s my first listen when I get to work on Monday.

    Premier Icon daleman

    The take off and landing of everything, anything by Iron and wine and the sound track from searching for sugar man sound track which is amazing, not seen the film yet but will be watching over the weekend ,looks to be a fascinating story.

    Premier Icon bigblackshed

    Porcupine Tree – Fear of a Blank Planet.
    Chickenfoot – 3.
    Marillion – Misplaced Childhood.

    This week I’ve been mainly listening to:

    The Paul Simon Songbook by, er, Paul Simon

    Otto Klemperer Conducts, a 10 CD set of live recordings of a load of Bruckner, Brahms and Beethoven (cost less than a tenner – amazing!)

    Unkle – physcience fiction.

    Premier Icon somafunk

    According to my iTunes data i have been listening to :

    Erased Tapes Collection IV (scroll down), one of the outstanding compilation series collections of Erased Tapes Artists.

    The new EP by Grandbrothers – Ezra , simply outstanding work and mastered to perfection.

    There are a few others but that’s my top 3 so far out of 37hrs of music.
