My heart sinks at the news that Van Morrison has re recorded some of his songs with such luminaries as PJ Proby, Chris Farlowe and Mick Hucknall for a duets album. Everyone seems to do one of these records these days, and they’ll all rubbish aren’t they- basically just money making exercises? Or are there some good examples out there?
It’s been a tough old week. But today I had a great couple of work meetings down in London. This was then followed by meeting up with our daughter who moved to London a couple of months ago to start a new job. She was as wide eyed, excited and full of life as you would want any 23 year old to be as she makes her way in the big city. It was just the lift I needed.On the way back on the train, listening to Lucinda Williams, this came on and summed up my glass more than half full mood perfectly.
Have a great – and blessed – weekend everyone
Am I the first person here to fail the maths test when I tried to log-in? Fortunately I managed the 1×1 question the second time around, so all’s well…
My last post just before the cataclysm was a paean of praise for Frazey Ford’s Indian Ocean. However many weeks on it is (how long is it in fact – seems like forever?) it’s still getting regular plays in the BB household. So too Sharon van Etten, Hooray the Riff Raff, Thompson St Vincent and the Rebekka Karijord record. What else from last year has lasted the pace through to February?
