Back in the game

Unusually chilled out today (no work tomorrow) so listened to some music. This may sound an odd remark for a forumista but lately, y'know the past few months, I just haven't been as engaged with it all....not sure exactly why. Today I got some vinyl out and some cds and everything sounded fresh - Junior Parker, Muddy Waters, Bob Dylan, Salif Keita....and while I was listening to all that I was fooling around on this PC and chanced to get reacquainted with THE RECIDIVISTS. A couple of tracks on there I'd not noticed before including a little African styling - "Fabien." Very nice. (The whole thing is). http://www.reverbnation.com/recidivists.

In The Dark, a song stuck in my mind since the seventies but never acquired on record, turned up on the Junior Parker cd that I'd won on Norman and Gary's No Reason Podcast months ago but obviously hadn't listened to with any kind of attention.

Then I really enjoyed the youtube clips of Tuba Skinny, Recoil, and Pat Metheny posted by Chris P. and Rob Hall. So thanks to everyone who puts up great clips that appear to fall on stony ground but don't always.

Not odd to me, Will, Notodd...and thanks for the Recidivists link. Cool sounds and Fabien is a winner, Loverly stuff from Adam & Co.

Thanks Will, good to read such a positive posting. You've done me a favour too by reminding me to look out the stuff 'at the back of the cupboard'. Having a hard line habit means the constant aquisition of more of the stuff. Brilliant, but it does mean shelving things, both literally and metaphoricaly. It's a great feeling to come across something unheard for ages and remind yourself why you liked it so much at the time. Also, he admitted sheepishly, occassionally I find something still in its film wrapping several years later...

Thanks, Will. I'd heard talk of there being an 'African' Recidivists track, but had never actually heard the thing itself until you pointed me in the right direction. Very enjoyable stuff, so thanks to Adam, Ted, etc for creating it. Does the band still exist?

I don't get to spend time here as often as I'd like, but it always brings such rewards when I do.

Same as my top post here, work can go take a jump today. I've got the vinyl out - It's a Freddy King kinda day here. Feels So Good!
