BGO reissue of the first three 'Lake' albums on CD..... just fantastic stuff if you like early Doobie Brothers, Steely Dan, etc..... LOVE it!

Also, the latest 'Kayak' album - titled 'Seventeen'. A wonderful pomp/prog release in the style of Alan Parsons Project, 'Camel etc.

Great stuff :)

Never heard of Kayak before but they sound pretty impressive. Will give them a bit more investigation.. I was a big prog fan from late 70's too including Camel and Alan Parsons.

Thanks for the heads up on them.

Dave

I've been listening to the first Lake album recently and I'm impressed. I bought it in the mid 90s as part of a job lot - ten albums for £5 and I only wanted one of them (not the Lake one) so I picked 9 random albums. Shortly after I ditched the record player and stopped listening to vinyl.

Earlier this year I set it back up and dug all the old records out. The Lake album was still sealed so I thought I'd give it a spin. Still listening to it now.

The new Conan - Exestential Void Guardian, superb

A man to my own heart :)

I've seen them a few times now, they all seem like great guys.

Since the arrival of the baby, most of my listening has had to be with earphones on - and Spotify has lured me in an Old School Heavy Metal playlist, ideal for those brief minutes of Xbox time with the cans on. Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Anvil... it's making me feel both old and great in the same listening :D

It's great isn't it?! If they'd been American they'd have been huge!

Check out the 2nd & 3rd albums..... and the 4th one has great moments too....

Analog Son by Anolog Son.

Introduced to me by the Funk , Soul Disco and Groove- What's New? thread.

What can I say. It's funky.

I'm listening to this album which I've wanted for nearly 40 years! It was on my 'to buy' list when I was 16 but I never got it - I finally picked up a copy.

You can't see it in the link - it's the London RnB Sessions album recorded live at the Hope & Anchor.

 

 

I love this album! I've lost my copy unfortunately, but The Pirates and The Bishops are excellent.

Chicago V


Fantastic!

Peter Cetera's bass on Dialogue (Pts 1 & 2) is awesome and worth the purchase price alone!

Yes I agree

But at the moment my favourite track is the third Now that you've gone - the brass parts are just so fantastic and super forceful/in your face especially at loud volumes. Wonderful

Bit sentimental for, I listened to Chicago in late 6o's/early 70's but only stayed for the first three CDs. I then was totally absorbed in Peter Gabriel's Genesis 

so it's only in the last week or so that  I've heard Chicago V. Although it was realeased in 1972 I am now listening to it and some of the subsequent CDs for the first time

So 46 years after it was released - bit late to the party!

I forget occasionally just how uniquely good 10cc were, but I’m rewatching the BBC4 documentary just to remind myself...

 I can't get enough of Solar Fields at the mo and have been going through his back catalogue and this afternoon I have this on while I've been repainting my 11 year old's bedroom. Well recommended if you like atmospheric electronica

Finally got around to watching/ hearing Joe Cocker's Mad Dogs concert film I Sky+'d several moons ago.

I took 2 things away from it:

Carl Radle was a great purveyor of tone and taste

In 1970, I'd have signed away Lennon & McCartney's royalties for a go on Rita Coolidge
