The Soundtrack To My Life. 02/09/2011.

I’m not dead!
…Although I am now almost 30 with a mortgage so, same thing really.
Heh heh.

This old blog will be back to normal in a few days but in the meantime, here are some of the albums I’ve been listening to whilst moving furniture over the past few days…

Bob Dylan’s “Theme Time Radio Hour”. Episode 3, Drinking (2006):

Gerry Rafferty’s “Can I Have My Money Back” (1972):

The latest from Lenny Kravitz, “Black And White America” (2011):

“Checkmate Savage” by The Phantom Band (2009):

Paul McCartney & Wings, “Red Rose Speedway” (1973):

“As Time Goes By …The Complete Schmilsson In The Night” by Harry Nilsson (1996):

The 2nd LP in Johnny Cash’s American Recordings Series, “American Recordings II: Unchained” (1996):

“Dig!!! Lazarus Dig!!!” by Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds (2008):

John Lennon & Yoko Ono’s two way dialogue, “Double Fantasy” (1980):

“The Josua Tree” by U2 (1987):

Probably the latest record I’ve listened to is “Black And White America” from Lenny Kravitz and y’know what? It ain’t bad at all! -It’s pretty funky infact!
I like Kravitz but I’m an album guy and Lenny’s albums usually contain about 3 or 4 great singles with the rest being filler. “Black And White America” is a typical Kravitz album but his songs are getting better!
Maybe it’s ’cause I’ve missed him but I also really like the album cover photo.

I really enjoyed hearing that Gerry Rafferty album again.
Considering how much he’s loved here in Glasgow, it’s surprisingly difficult to find a Gerry Rafferty album for sale in the shops here.
“Can I Have My Money Back” was his debut album.

You’d do well to check out the rest of those records.
You’d do really well!

The blog will be back to normal in a couple of days folks!

  1. You know I bought Red Rose Speedway on vinyl a few years ago and I haven’t listened to it yet, and I’m a fan of Paul McCartney (although George Harrison has now overtaken him as my favourite Beatle – listened to Gone Troppo and Somewhere In England only last night!).

    • Cheers for the comment.
      I have a lot of time for McCartney’s 70’s albums and if you haven’t already, you should get yourself a copy of “Venus And Mars” and also, George Harrison’s “Cloud 9”.

  2. Got both of them albums mate. I’m making my way through George’s back catalogue just now. In fact, I found myself a wee gem in Crackerbox Palace on 33 & 1/3. I remember Cloud 9 when it came out, I loved both Got my mind set on you and When we was fab (and when I listen to that I have to shove on All those years ago too!).

    Happy listening Alan!
