  1. They were definitely the highlight for me. Interesting to hear them talk about the way they recorded 'There Is No Other', I will keep an ear open for Francesco's comments next time I play it.
  2. Canned Heat - I'm Watching you. From their 1988 album Reheated.
  3. Carolina Chocolate Drops - Leaving Eden (2012) This one arrived today, just had a first listen and am very impressed. Recorded live in the studio in 2011, released in 2012. I think the live nature of this recording really gives this some presence. The performances are very good and it sounds terrific. Boodle-De-Bum-Bum. A rather bluesy number with Dom Flemons singing lead vocals. Hubby Jenkins plays mandolin, Adam Matta sings background vocals, and Rhiannon Giddens also sings background vocals and plays a 5 string cello banjo (I'm not really sure what that
  4. I picked up this curiosity while browsing through the second hand racks at Big Star on Magill Road yesterday. A 2008 CD remaster of this 1968 album on the Esoteric / Cherry Red label (cover photo from the internet). I was aware of this album, but had never heard it before, so was quite pleased to find this copy in excellent condition for $12. As many will be aware, the trio of brothers Michael and Peter Giles with Robert Fripp were the precursor to what later became King Crimson, after some lineup changes. The music here doesn't sound very Crims
  5. Yep! And did anybody go to the TISM store, have a look at the album cover, and notice the words in the caption?
  6. Luc, for a new look go to dark mode, you will not go back!
  7. I just composed my first reasonable sized post in dark mode. So much clearer and easier on the eye, much easier to spot and correct my typos.
  8. Another one of my orders arrived yesterday. A 2019 recording produced as part of the African American Legacy series on the Smithsonian Folkways label. A collaboration between Rhiannon Giddens, Amythyst Kiah, Leyla McCall and Allison Russell, with songs inspired by the stories of the African people who were transported to America as slaves in years gone by. The songs were co-written by all four, and performed by them in various combinations. This recording project was instigated by Rhiannon Giddens and is co-produced with Dirk Powell, who also plays a number
  9. Thanks Marc, I have now moved to the dark side. I like it.
  10. Looks like Gryphon are about to release another album. Due for release 27th November 2020. I've just pre-ordered my CD copy from Burning Shed. Bit of a longer wait for those who prefer the dark (or blue) side though, vinyl release due 15th January 2021. https://burningshed.com/index.php?route=product/search&filter_name=Get Out Of My Father's Car!&filter_sub_category=true Not quite sure what to expect, but should be fun.
  11. Glad to hear this Marc. I was just having a browse on Stereonet Asia, and I see a number of the members there are requesting this option. I am one who prefers to have a dark background, and will switch that option on wherever it is available. Probably comes from spending a fair bit of time on Unix systems, where I have my preferences set to green text on a black background, I just find it much easier on the eye than a glowing white screen.
  12. I just had a look for the edit button, took me about 2 seconds to find it behind the 3 dots ... , so not a problem. I always use SNA on my desktop PC, but the '3 dots' thing seems have become a standard feature on many applications that run on tablets. If you can't find how to do something, always look for the ... and chances are it will be hiding behind it.
  13. It would be pretty hard to limit oneself to just one record label, and miss out on so much music. If you had asked this a few years ago, I might have said Compass Records, but I now already have a lot of music on that label. Maybe now I would choose World Music Network / Riverboat Records. I have a number of albums on that label, but there is a lot more there to be had. Then again, I wouldn't want to be excluded from Esoteric / Cherry Red and some of their excellent reissues of titles that have been unavailable for too long. Nope, too hard to cho
  14. I ended up buying a copy of this from a seller called teverjef on ebay. It is a second hand copy, 2 disc version. The seller advertised it as being in brand new condition. I am always a bit hesitant about ordering from ebay, but took a chance in this case. I ordered it on 1st October, it arrived yesterday, and I am pleased to say that the seller was true to his word. It is in excellent condition, and was well packaged, being bubble wrapped inside a small cardboard box, with the whole thing inside a padded post bag. Thank you teverjef, well done! I played this last night
  15. Upgrade looks good to me so far. I like the square avatar image better then the old round one (small point).
