I really like the Graceland album. It's one of the few album titles that I own on all of the various formats, vinyl, CD, digital.

Emmy Lou Harris and Rodney Crowell, "The Traveling Kind". A really nice LP if you are into ballads and folk music. Nice duets and well recorded. The first two tracks are killers. Pass on her newest LP though (Red Dirt Girl). It is full of accompaniment (drums and such) that seriously detracts from the vocals. The critics seem to like it....but not for me.

Good listening
Bruce

An album that I have always liked from way back,

Tangerine dream,
Stratosfear:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73mrtLt9FDU

It was the early days of electronic synth but has it been bettered?

Kraftwerk computer love from the Mix album ( I don't like the other version on the computer world album).
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-edTeO92S_g

For anyone interested the Mix Album:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBkHFsbUw5I

I used to play this with 200W per channel Tube amps and Tannoy 611's LMAO how times change.
You could feel your internal organs move with the bass.. :eek: :D

Hummmm..I still have some of the parts. Perhaps I will build a V8. (pic)


Regards
M. Gregg

https://youtu.be/73mrtLt9FDU?t=1503

ELO 10538 overture. (this was on the B side of Evil Woman)

PFM jet lag

After some time doing meditation I seem to have an "appreciation" for interesting things..
Anouska Shanka Traveller:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PfRSr0F9eM

If you are in the right mood then this ticks the box. ( I could never see the point really then something happened)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=RDhJ ... 1qKwuz07ss

Male sitar really?.. :confused: but this I found interesting. (What am I actually hearing? then..)
You know I listened to this several times..I still don't get it but perhaps I do but in a strange way.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uAA8RyMjj9A

Then I listened to this and it all seemed to make sense.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BOgoqt ... J0jKIiA9t0

A slight digression there.. :D

Ravi Shankar and Anushka:

I had to add this song,

Peter Sarstedt - Where Do You Go To My Lovely
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L8XQZYIiNgo

I have always liked this why, well it has atmosphere and its hard to pin down. Perhaps it has soul.

Regards
M. Gregg
