  1. Did you see 'Something for the Weekend' on Sunday? Seasick Steve meets Tim Lovejoy and Emma Bunton. Talk about a strange combination... check your BBC iPlayer.
  2. TRLers interested in the more traditional areas of music should enjoy this Friday's evening schedule on BBC4, as follows:
  3. I'm staying with my sister and we decided, after days of slobby, post-Christmas Royle Family impressions, to go to Whitby for Fish & Chips. Head over the main bridge to the South (Abbey) side and take the first left and the shop's on your right. Small but interesting - very little mainstream stuff. As for the purchases and their genres, Archie Roach is an Aboriginal singer-songwriter (check out 'Summer of my Life' if you want your heart broken), Mavis Staples' album is a collection of protest songs, sung by one of the greatest voices in Soul and Holger Czukay was the nuttiest regular member of Krautrock titans Can.
  4. In a record shop in Whitby today, I got: Mavis Staples - Have a little Faith Archie Roach - Looking for Butterboy Holger Czukay - Time and Tide
  5. I've been given Herbie Hancock's 'River' album. Joni Mitchell songs, interpretated by HH, with the help of, among others, Leonard Cohen, Tina Turner, Norah Jones and Joni herself. First two songs rather good, BTW, with Tina Turner stepping out of her usual persona to relax and stretch out with 'Edith and the Kingpin'. I'll report back when I get my head round the rest of it.

  15. I dug out my copy of their first album recently, but the cod-Jamaican accents grated more than I remembered.
  16. Actually, it's rather good. And in the sleeve notes they point out that they took care to make sure that their version synchronises with 'The Wizard of Oz', just like the original.
