I've been spending more time listening to music during lockdown with old favourites and new discoveries
Stand out find for me has been "Ol' man River" with Jeff Beck, Rod Stewart and Keith Moon (on timpany) recorded in 1968 on Beck's album Truth
Any other unlikely finds?
From a Spotify suggested for you thingy called Psyc Turk - modern and retro Turkish psychedelic sounds.
What do you mean by “unlikely”?
A couple new LP arrivals of mine:
The Gloaming - Live at NCH
Olafur Arnalds - Re:Member
Bonobo - Black Sands (Anniversary print)
Colter wall - Thirteen Silver Dollars (Country)
Chihei Hatakeyama (Ambient)
Alabaster DePlume - Visit Croatia
Not sure it's unlikely but certainly unexpected by me is a cover of Fleetwood Mac's Green Manalishi by Mick Fleetwood's allstars featuring Kirk Hammett on guitar. I've always thought his skills were wasted in metallica and this vid proves me right. Dave Bronze on bass and one of the ZZ top beardies singing.
I’ve discovered many (getting to listen to music 10 hours a day helps).
Best thing that comes to mind is The Rip by Portishead. I’ve no idea how I missed it first time around. What a track!
I've discovered Iron Cross, what a sweetie she is!
