Peter if you didn't rate Styx you are really not going to rate REO Speedwagon :)

Styx were described in "Sounds" back in the day as "pomp rock".  And REO Speedwagon's "Back On The Road Again" has a terrific guitar solo.  In it.

I quite like a bit of REO Speedwagon or Journey. Always makes me think of silver 70s Pioneer stereos for some reason.

Just remember kids too much of that kind of soft rock and your brains will liquefy and drip out of your ears.

An Eric Bogle collection, with a box of tissues ready. What a lovely writer, and lovely man.

Not Dark Yet - Shelby Lynne & Allison Moorer

If you like harmonies you'll like this. They are sisters but have never released an album of duets before.
Covers everything form the Merle Haggard to Nirvana and Nick Cave.

They make "My List" by the Killers sound like it was written by Van Morrison which is odd. Lovely but odd.

The only song on Not Dark Yet that isn't a cover is "Is it too much?" which they wrote together.

Their parents were killed in a murder suicide in front of them when Shelby and Alison were teenagers:

Is it too much to carry in your heart?
Is it too much to carry in your heart?
No one else sees the rain fall
No one else hears the ghost call
Is it too much to carry in your heart?
Is it too much hurtin' in your eyes?
Is it too much feelings to try to hide?
No one else works upon the toes
No else there to share the load
Is it too much to carry in your heart?

Bring it here to my side
Tell me about the tears you cry
Lord know you must be tired enough
Whisper what you never tell
Don't you know you ain't by yourself
I'm right here to help you , lay it down

Is it too much to carry in your heart?
Is it too much to carry in your heart?
No one else sees the memories
No one else lives it with me
Is it too much to carry in your heart?
Is it too much to carry?

Moved on to "Shadows and Light".

Pat Metheny on lead guitar and Jaco Pastorius  on base, remarkable!

Hidden Treasure playlists on Radio 2 iPlayer - broadcast at oh-too-early on Tuesday mornings but well worth a listen.  I'd forgotten how good Romeo's Tune is... and where else can you hear Steve Forbert alongside Clarence Carter and Devo?

The Cure - Mixed Up

Superb, extended dance flavoured remixes of some of their best songs, my favourite Cure album. I can't believe its nearly 30 years old though (1990) makes me feel really old.

Friday Night is Music Night on Radio 2

I normally hate this and most of Radio 2s output in general. However tonight Mrs Pcolbeck left the radio tuned to radio 2 and its Michael Feinstein with an orchestra doing tunes by Hollywood composer Harry Warren (42nd street etc) and it's brilliant.

Spotify.

I've been persuaded to pay a tenner a month for hearing the music without ads but - and here's the big BUT - I am sceptical about the business model and what it means for artists. I'm of the generation that bought records and then bought some of them again on CD, so in  my mind there is a direct connection between my having the pleasure of listening to an artist's work and them receiving some financial benefit.  But how does Spotify work?  I'm sure the artists must get a royalty but how does it compare with what they would get if I made a physical purchase? 

As it happens, I have gone out and bought a couple of albums that I've first listened to on Spotify but there are several that I've listened to more than once but not purchased. And I feel a bit bad about that.  Am I freeloading?

No your not its just the modern way. Loads of kids don't buy anything but a Spotify subscription or similar ever.

I have recenty signed up for Amazon Prime unlimited music or whatever its called. Seems to have about everything,
I have 500+ CDs and 300+  vinyl albums. The subscription is letting me listen to stuff I wouldn't bother buying and then I will still buy the stuff I really like to get the higher bit rate versions.
