Atom Heart Mother - Pink Floyd/Ron Geesin.  Doesn't have the critical acclaim of Echoes.  But I like it.

This morning, instead of listening to Biffy Clyro*, I did my bike ride to the notes of DJ Shadow - Our Pathetic Age.

*which you might have guessed if you look at my ride names on Strava :)

The postman brought me a nice present yesterday.  "To Drink The Rainbow" by Tanita Tikaram.    Lovely stuff.     I had her first album mumble years ago & she'd dropped of my radar, but have been following her on Twitter @tanita_tikaram recently so bought this, an anthology of her work between 1988 - 2019.

Townes Van Zandt - Live at The Winning Post York 1990

https://youtu.be/BthRLYDTFPY

Just found this on YouTube. I was at this gig. 30 years ago, doesn't seem that long. A brilliant night at what is basically a big pub with a function room.
I had no idea it was recorded.

Try "To Live is to Fly" - 48m 10s in its a lovely song. The man was a genius.

Grace Potter's streams from home.

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLKgVl6E2PRSb1MHpw88ib-cAbWstFWDi1

A mixture of her own songs and covers.
Dead Flowers is great and "Nothing but the Water / Foxy Lady" is fun with Wayne and Garth on drums and base.

Various versions of Rainbow's Stargazer, listening to Ritchie Blackmore's solo which apparently is based on a Phrygian scale (yes I had to look it up).  Not your average rock musician, Mr Blackmore.

"Mountains O' Things"


The life I've always wanted
I guess I'll never have
I'll be working for somebody else
Until I'm in my grave
I'll be dreaming of a life of ease
And mountains Oh mountains o' things


To have a big expensive car
Drag my furs on the ground
And have a maid that I can tell
To bring me anything
Everyone will look at me with envy and with greed
I'll revel in their attention
And mountains Oh mountains o' things


Sweet lazy life
Champagne and caviar
I hope you'll come and find me
Cause you know who we are
Those who deserve the best in life
And know what money's worth
And those whose sole misfortune
Was having mountains o' nothing at birth


Oh they tell me
There's still time to save my soul
They tell me
Renounce all
Renounce all those material things you gained by
Exploiting other human beings


Consume more than you need
This is the dream
Make you pauper
Or make you queen
I won't die lonely
I'll have it all prearranged
A grave that's deep and wide enough
For me and all my mountains o' things


Oh they tell me
There's still time to save my soul
They tell me
Renounce all
Renounce all those material things you gained by
Exploiting other human beings


Mostly I feel lonely
Good good people are
Good people are only
My stepping stones
It's gonna take all my mountains o' things
To surround me
Keep all my enemies away
Keep my sadness and loneliness at bay


The life I've always wanted
I guess I'll never have
I'll be working for somebody else
Until I'm in my grave
I'll be dreaming of a live of ease
And mountains, Oh mountains o' things

Moon River, sung by Audrey Hepburn. From the film Breakfast at Tiffanys.
Such a nice song, full of warmth

I'd like to know who is on the mixing desk on these as they are doing a remarkable job.

The Interrupters, saw them live a couple of years ago when we took TLD to see Green Day at Leeds Arena.  I liked their music then and it's even more relevant now.

If that article is accurate then I must have seen them supporting Motörhead in 1979, though my recollection is that Nutz were the support at the Lyceum.  Getting old sucks.
