What's it called?: 
The Studio Albums 1992-2003

As the title suggests, a collection of the eight albums released between 1992-2003. This includes four well known works and four lesser known ones.

New Orleans Soul

What's it called?: 
The original sound of New Orleans Soul - 1966-76.
What does it sound like?: 
The wonderful Soul Jazz Records have come out with another of their inspired compilations - this time of Soul from the Crescent City.

Hiss Golden Messenger

What's it called?: 
Lateness of Dancers
What does it sound like?: 
My first instinct was to avoid this album at all costs because I really do not like the Band name. Then I read Uncut reviews and was intrigued. My resistance evaporated and I went and bought it.

Films

Hannibal (Seasons 1&2)

First off, this is not for everybody it is very, very, very gory and really hard to watch in places.

The War of the Worlds

HG Wells' greatest triumph as a writer, The War of The Worlds adapted well to the 1950s.

Got a round tuit today. More freshly hand-picked records from the boot sales of Suffolk (including one just for Beany). Apols in advance for mildly erratic sound levels - gremlins.

Nights Out

Clannad

Where: 
The Hexagon, Reading.
Comment: 
Having never seen them in their prime this was my 3rd Clannad gig in 18 months. With a new album out, it wasn't just a Greatest Hits show, and the new songs sound wonderful anyway.

In December 1971, our house acquired its first stereo. My dad had obviously planned it for a long time. He bought separates and wall furniture to rest them on, including a large record cabinet. The speakers were placed high on the wall on either side of the front window.

I call it Weatherallism

My friends! I have made an important musical discovery. I have uncovered a movement that came and went unremarked and worse -- unforgivably -- unnamed.
