Here's a treat - the video is not from the same source as the audio, but this is what 'River deep, Mountain high' sounded like before Phil Spector mixed it down to mono for commercial release.

The Arcade Fire's new album is out and its very powerful stuff. Its a very long album and won't burn onto one CD from i-tunes.

 

This is the track 'Normal Person'

I managed to pick up a mint copy of Nutbush City Limits the other day for £1:50 from my favourite 2nd hand shop, really enjoying it and have just picked up a copy of Sweet Rhode Island Red too. Even though they are both studio albums they have a live feel to them. We all know the history of what went on between Ike and Tina but the chemistry between them on there records was amazing.

An amazing live act, too. I have had an LP of theirs for years called Nice'n'Rough, which mixes their own songs with covers and the raw energy is amazing.

Just arrived - the new Mobile Fidelity pressing of The Band's second album. If they've done as good a job as they did with 'Music from Big Pink', I'll be very pleased.

 

Wow. Just wow. I played this against a perfectly decent clean pressing based on the original release mix, as botched by the record label. Compared to this new one based on The Band's original intentions, it sounds gutless and distant.

Just like Mobile Fidelity's pressing of 'Big Pink', this is the only version anyone should ever need to own.

I actually prefer the mono version of that. Which seems to be the case for me with several 60's records, no technical reason i just think they sound better.

Just watched the results show from Strictly Come Dancing. Some quasi classical boy band did an overblown  turgid version of Bob Dylan's Forever Young.

 

So I've dug out the "genuinely classic"  version by Joan Baez.

Frank Zappa and band perform 'Inca Roads' with part of it animated by the demented plasticene creations of Bruce Bickford.
