    Here's what I remember...

    Richard Thompson - Front Parlour Ballads, I suppose Thompson might be an acquired taste with his baritone voice but this disc is something special with some lovely acoustic guitar and a really nice recording too.

    Efterklang – Tripper, minimalist electronica with strings and subtle backbeats I think they are Danish but not sure. You have to be in the mood for it, but if you are it’s well worth a listen.

    Death Cab For Cutie – Plans
    Laura Veirs – Years of Meteors
    The Clientelle – Strange Geometry
    Mars Volta – Frances The Mute
    Earlimart – Treble and Tremble
    A comp of my own, Shadow Of A Man

    Elbow – Leaders Of The Free World, turning into a grower. Yer right Davey he does have a real Peter Gabriel vocal style that’s infectious. It’s a really nice album, not flash or commercial just doing what they do best.

    Stevie Wonder – Innervisions, haven’t listened to this in a while but seeing he has a recent one out which has been getting rave reviews made me pull this out what a classic album. Sadly his latest from the samples I heard I won’t be rushing out to buy.

    Cheers
    Mike

    ps Good luck with the tests Jar hope it works out ok

    I found it used on the weekend. It's pretty darn good. I think you might like it.

    I saw them on TV recently and they smoked.

    Nothing to report, no time. But I was saddened to read about Masonjar. Jar, I hope they're able to nail it down and get it corrected very soon. Knowing how miserable an illness can be, I hope and pray for nothing but the best for you.

    Jeff Lynn?

    Nobody even wants an ELO album produced by Jeff Lynn.

    Maybe a Paul McCartney album produced by Jeff Lynn would be good for both their careers.

    It's true what they say, sometimes bad things happen to good people. Don't go lingering in the hospital though. They're not safe.

That opening "The Vineyard" has always reminded me a little of "Golden Slumbers" from Abbey Road. But when that ornate opener finishes, they launch with a running start right into "This Train Will Be Taking No Passengers" and really set the hook in me. Some of that Split Enz that Dave G was just mentioning along the way, and some Kinks, and a few other familiar signposts, but it all makes for a pretty nice road trip.

    Or does it blow chunky pieces of hippo genitalia? In which case, I hope you didn't buy it on my rec
