Talking Back to the Nightby Steve Winwood is the latest record I’ve uploaded to my computer. I bought the album, last week, at the Black Plastic record store, which has a brilliant collection of old and new vinyl.
I first heard Talking Back to the Nightpretty soon after it was first released in August 1982. A guy I used to knock around with back in the early eighties was a big music fan, and I remember hearing this round at his house and borrowing the album a few days later. I think I taped it on to a cassette (remember them?), but I’ve long since lost it, along with all my other old cassettes.
Well no posts this week, but still plenty going on in my world of music, definitely enough for TW3 Week 6!
I’ll start with my latest acquisitions from Black Plastic, this record store was definitely a good find! Last week I purchased these two classics:
Fragile by Yes and Talking Back to the Night by Steve Winwood. And the price for these two classic albums, less than $8! Why is there a bottle of Sprout relish in the photo? It’s there because I posted this photo to the Big Big Train Facebook group page, where Brussel Sprouts are a hot topic, and that was my contribution!
I found another neat record label, Signature Sounds. Once again I came across this courtesy of Noisetrade. I downloaded their Music Abounds sampler, which as well as including some of their recent releases, also includes some tracks from their forthcoming 20th Anniversary Collection:Rarities from the Second Decade.
I can’t remember where I came across Twin Peaks, but sometime during this last week, I downloaded their In the Morning(In the Evening) track, and I love it. Here you go, listen to this!
Joe Bonamassa is someone I’ve been curious about for a while, and earlier this week I downloaded a free album he’s released. I found out about this on my Facebook feed. There’s loads of great stuff on the album, but my favourite is Slow Train , from his An Acoustic Evening at the Vienna Opera Housealbum.
Meanwhile in the twitterverse, I’ve acquired a few new followers from the music world. Firstly, the Dave Hanson Band has joined my illustrious list of followers. Check this out from the Dave Hanson Band
The Dave Hanson Band are based in Leeds, England, whereas Hailey Whitters, another new follower is based in Nashville, Tennessee. Have a listen to this playlist, trust me it’s well worth a listen!
Back to England for another of my new followers, Wily Bo Walker, who is based in London. Mind you listen to this and you’ll think you’re down in New Orleans!
Anyway enough of twitter, the big news in my music world is that I’ve got a ticket to see the mighty Lord Huron, on theirStrange Trails tour at, get this, The RymanAuditorium! I’m going on another pilgrimage to the Mother Church!
So there goes another week in my world of music, TW3 – Week 6
