  2. Is this a bookfest haul? I was at the beach yesterday and missed the first day. Went this morning but the pickings were slim. Left with only about 10 CDs --Geoff
  3. Currently Spinning

    Vangelis - Mask -- been a while between drinks for this one. A bit different to the usual Vangelis fare, with lots of choir and sturm und drang. --Geoff
  4. Electronic currently spinning

    Home - Odyssey -- kinda like Boards Of Canada goes vaporwave. US$1 lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff
  5. The Sunday night ambient now spinning thread

    Kowalski Room - Two Minutes From Forever -- Almost 2 hours of chilled ambience. Described as "Blurred visions of nature. Blurred sounds of piano and strings. Phased layers of recycled motifs." And that's about right. And it's a "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp. 1. Nocturne 39:27 2. The Song of the Piano in the Night 50:13 3. Just Two More Minutes 23:35 --Geoff
  6. Jazz: Currently Spinning

    simakDialog - Live At Orion -- Indonesian jazz fusion, heavy on the Rhodes. "Name Yer Price" lossless download at Bandcamp for a limited time. --Geoff
  7. Currently Spinning

    Pam Shaffer - As We Are -- apparently the lyrics are from the diaries of Anais Nin (back in the 1930s in the Henry Miller days, see also Henry And June). The music is piano-based with a touch of Kate, Tori and theatre. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff
  8. Electronic currently spinning

    Twelve - Alleine Kleine Nackt MuZiK -- an EP of bleepy IDMness. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff
  9. I always preferred follow-up album Word Of Mouth myself, but I don't have a copy and it's a bugger to find. Conversely you can get Short Note on CD new for about $7 from JB's. --Geoff
  10. Red Sails In The Sunset? Pffft! Everyone knows that the greatest Strayan album - nay, the greatest album in the universe! - is this:
  11. Currently Spinning

    Youssoupha Sidibe - Sacred Sound -- an album of solo kora, which I guess is a kind of African harp. Very noice. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff
  12. Currently Spinning

    Les Lekin - All Black Rainbow Moon -- rather tasty instrumental stoner doom riffage from a self-described "heavy-psych-three-piece-noise-machine" outta Salzburg, Austria. €1lossless download from Bandcamp. --Geoff
  13. That's a 1976 Nursery Cryme / Foxtrot 2-fer ... technically the 3rd and 4th albums. I've got a similar 2-fer, a late 70s white-label U.S. promo on Polydor: I've got Nursery Cryme on LP but haven't yoinked a stand-alone Foxtrot LP yet to complete the collection. Need the covers for my wall ... --Geoff
  14. Picked up this Genesis - Trespass LP today in the cheep bins. A UK first press with a Charisma pink scroll label, lyric sheet, and textured gatefold cover. The vinyl is only VG but noice to have anyway. --Geoff
  15. Since I haven't been updating this thread, here's the equivalent searches for "Name Yer Price" posts by me: - in the Currently Spinning thread - in the Ambient Currently Spinning thread - in the Electronic Currently Spinning thread Click on the links periodically to see the latest yoinks. --Geoff
