'River' from Joni Mitchell's 'Blue' is hard to beat for this time of year.. whole album really. Ditto 'A Child's Christmas In Wales' from Cale's 'Paris 1919'. Am also back playng early Jethro Tull, in particular their 'Living In The Past' best of, wherein resides the fine 'Christmas Song' - as pertinent now - perhaps even more so, than when it was a hit single at the end of the Sixties. A lot of that album holds up very well indeed. I went off Tull after Thick As Brick, but still have a huge soft spot for stuff prior to that, part of te soundtrack to my formative years. Hmm.. Xmas songs.. I feel a separate topic coming on..

Nothing to do with Xmas, but I recently (finally) got hold of the tour CD for the California 66 tour and I've been enjoying that recently

Phil Spector's Christmas Album (stereo lp),
and now, " Hard Days Night", American version stereo lp. sweet.
The original Xmas album was released in November 1963 on the same day President Kennedy was killed. That had some effect on it's poor sales.

...what the world needs now...

'Silverwater' - new album by my current favourite band, The Necks, who are Aussie jazsters = but in a way their music defies categorisation. Keyboards/acoustic bass/drums, they've been going for twenty years, and their albums are improvised, often one piece over an hour long.. hypnotic, absorbing, and not a duff one among them. Check out Amazon etc reviews. Only found them recently, wish it was years ago. I know through a mutual friend that the great Danny Thompson loves them, which I hope is recommendation enough.

'The Lark Ascending' - Waughan Williams. Just bought two wonderful CD versions, one mono, 'Sir Adrian Boult Conducts Vaughan Williams', Dutton Recs CDBP 9703, recorded Abbey Road, 1952, co-prod by a guy called George Martin. Name seems familiar.. as for the stereo version, its on a CD with VW's 'Fantasia on Greensleeves', and pieces by Dalius and Walton. Quite simply, its the best record I've heard all year, bar none.. what away to finish it. Spellbinding violin by Pinchas Zucherman, conducted by Daniel Baremboim, English Chamber Orchestra. Deutsche Grammophon 439 529-2 If you've been less than enthralled by new rock releases this year, as I have, try this. Get from library or download if deleted ..really worth the effort tracking down. There's no harm in doing or listening to something different once in a while.. Merry Xmas

Been playing some of my Christmas pressies of late:

Gong - 2032 (a bit inconsistent, but what the hell, it's the Hillfish!)
Spirit - Spirit of '74 (what can I say that lk hasn't?)
Jefferson Airplane - The Woodstock Experience (my personal fave so far - the remastered Volunteers reminds me why I love this band and as for the 'Morning maniac music'...)
Judee Sill - BBC Sessions (nice upgrade on my bootleg mp3s)
Strawbs - Recollection (if you liked A Collection of Antiques & Curios, you'll love this)

Right Boomer...Spirit of '74 was basically a Randy effort, so good.
Sill's BBC sessions are brilliant.

I have a question, boomer...did yours (if you got the "Live
in London BBC Recordings 1972-73", 2007 Water) contain TWO
identical CDs, each one stuffed in the two sides of the gatefold eco-pack. Did yours do that ...a mistake at factory I assume?

You know over the holdiays I spent a fair amoutn of time getting acclimated to the new remastered Beatle cd's. They've been "finished" for years but after listening much to the "new" songs I've come away appreciating their music-making more and more. They were incredible crafting their songs and working within each of their contributions.
Also was listening to an English vocal group Stile Antico's cd "Song of Songs". Beautiful voices meshing to an ethereal sound. They've won a few awards for their works over there.
