Do you do requests by the way - if I find myself on the outside of your scope at any time I'd like to think I could avoid fish wink:
Unless I am in a beligerent mood I'll always give the patient a choice if I can accommodate their taste. My Opera, Jazz and specialist Old Lady Music selections are very limited.

I've done lists where we have had Verdi, Al Green, Mike Oldfield, Metallica, Elvis and Natalie Imbruglia in a single morning.

It is amazing how we remember those purchases. I have several thousand CDs and Vinyls yet I could probably tell you where I bought each one (if very boring conversations are your thing)
Sounds good, please bore us more Dr :wink:

I' ve always loved lists apart from the shopping lists my dear mum use to hand me when i was living at home many moons ago

As a young un i use keep a top 20 list of my favorite records on a weekly basis, subutteo league tables (Leeds Utd won everything), favorite TV programmes. Nowadays i have a cd wants lists on my pc & mobile & as you all know i enjoy a regular playlist. Could this be diagonosed as obsessive listmania :evil: What do you suggest or prescribe Dr, is this is a sign of madness.

My money is on it being "Somewhere Else" though I still haven't found any love for "Less Is More" yet. Gonna keep trying though.
For me it is Marbles - even my missus got into some of it - but Somewhere Else I thought the band lost their way (I never put it on the CD player). Less is More I did not even entertain a thought of buying after listening to some advance snippets.

Sitting suited'n'booted in Schipol Airport waiting for a flight to London when all these hairy gentlemen entered the longe. Cue mothers, children and business travellers edging towards the perimieters! I lent over and asked "are you guys in a band?"

I spent the remander of the wait chatting to DevilDriver band and crew, having photos taken (to encourage jealousy in my son) and leaving with gifts for him (drum sticks, key fobs, signed posters etc - my son drums in bands over here) - a bunch of very pleasant dudes!

You need to get yourself a decent jazz selection then doc.

Avoid the free jazz that could cause involuntary sphincter spasms and go for things such as:







Bates, GFH, Cellino: Same s**t, different arseholes.

No disrespect GW but I've yet to find anything that inspires me to put those two words together.

I have wide tastes and an open mind but Jazz does nothing for me. I'll give your uploads a try when I get home though and feed back.

The Last Electro-Acoustic Space Jazz And Percussion Ensemble - Miles Away!

I don't want to get too carried away because GW nips round and tears a strip off me every time I do but this is a little beauty by someone I've not bothered with until now. A surprise package for me from someone GW has talked about a great deal in the past - he's almost obsessive about the bloke. I can see why :wink:

Another contender for my album of the year here - in the net with bells on :o

I'm almost as enthusiastic about Madlib as you are about Waterson Carthy, WR.

Never had a problem with the Waterson family or Carthy - have albums by both. My beef with folk is there's plenty of breadth but not a lot of depth when you hit the bit marked 'modern folk'. The old timers go deep and traditional song is wonderful in the same way the blues is wonderful until the likes of Bonamonasanga get's going. But most of the new stuff doesn't do it for me. Look just below the surface and you just find easy listening and comedy stylings. Thompson is majestic of course but there's not much modern folk of that standard. The women singer/songwriter types are the worst - snoozeworthy at best. Really difficult to do something different as a foklie singer/songwriter I reckon. Alasdair Roberts is good of course.

Did I say ECM jazz is the same - no. Thank God. If I had I really would be in bother :wink:

Bet you loved the Madlib though GW. What's not to like - proper jazz band thing going on there :lol:

Close to tears again ATM, listening to that song and wishing I wasnt a very expensive plane trip that I can't afford away from my dad - who is now 80.
Just wanted to say respect for this post - typical of the honesty I have found since signing up - and voicing what all of us feel about our dads. Mine passed away when I was 12, but still time enough for us to butt heads on many occasions. He was pretty old school Irish Catholic - choose a fist over words - and left his mark on me manys a time. Looking back I probably desreved it and a whole lot more, but my pride is at its peak when my mom (still going at 90) tells me I am my father's son.

This is one of my favorite songs on a zillion levels and I am glad that the artist has returned to some public prominence.

Totally uncalled for - I like a laugh and have suffered more than most for my love of Hegarty and the like but no one has ever mentioned me in the same sentence as that arrogant music thief. You have my gauntlet and I expect to see you under the greenwood tree at dawn. My choice of weapons I think. I demand satisfaction :shoot:
