@noromance hey,  Roy puts me in mind of Al Stewart.  Never heard but, is there any connection there?
@noromance yes. I streamed a couple of Roy’s albums this afternoon and evening outside by the fire pit and had myself one of those strange experiences listening to music you’ve pretty sure you’ve never heard before but somehow reaches down into the recesses of memory and familiarity.  Not exactly Deja vu, just digging it.  Anyway, listened to “collection “ and his Folkjokeopus, which, you gotta admit sounds a lot like al in his early days before he started coming over here with his more commercial offerings.  Anyway, great stuff.  Thanks for the inspiration.  


Albert Cummings

recorded at Muscle Shoals and it’s definitely atmospheric.  Pregame!  Got a ticket to see his show tonight at the ancient but recently revived Alberta Rose.  Most excellent small venue.  Maybe he’ll sign my record....

I don’t know much at all about that scene (have some nick drake of course) and aside from my two oldest friends and myself don’t know anybody who owns or has even heard, let alone likes, early al Stewart. When I got to college and put on bed-sitter images, et. al. they’d come by my dorm room and make barfing noises.
Anyway, thanks for turning me on to Roy’s music. I hope I didn’t give the impression that I think his work is derivative of Al’s. Maybe just appealing to me in a similar way. I’m almost old enough to appreciate the context and have always liked this kind of thing (vs. more pop stuff). Roy seems to have a lot of integrity and well respected musician friends. Maybe he held out against commercialism and didn’t get to be so well known. That would sure be admirable to me. Will check out the other suggestions of your favorites of his when I’m in a sufficiently folky mood swing.

I just have to tell you good people that I love my stereo.  


how was moving pictures?  Pretty tight isn’t it?
Have not researched this; what does a degaussing record do for you?
@slaw  just got back online, busy Sunday with no stereo.  Anyway, thank you for getting back to me.  I would love to try a copy of the Cardas if you have an extra left.  I’ll pm you.  Will buy a mat from your web site and try that too.  Thanks,

Congratulations on your new acquisition.   That’s a cool looking piece.  Bet it sounds terrific.  

Yeah, L&M got a bad rap from the hip kids but I think those original albums are sweet. Sail away man!

Downloading the early 70s L&M for the weekend trip to Bend.  Probably won’t get too much flac from Grey’s Anatomy if I play it on the ride over.   Have a great music weekend boys.

@rafevw, I bought your Goldberg Variations. Understand why you need to give up the vinyl weight. But feel for ya man. You have a very nice collection.  Wish you the best with the downsizing.  
@rafevw. I’d be genuinely surprised if your ratings don’t prove to be conservative.
I saw Beth Horton just a little while ago front the whole mercury Rev Bobby Gentry delta sweetee  record. (As you maybe already know she leads the vocal on one cut on the record). Did real fine on the rest too live. Btw, recommend that you stream that record if you don’t already know it. Wonderfully atmospheric sounds and really cool lead vocals from some of the best ladies we got around here. Good luck with the continuing sales. Again, you’ve got some nice records. Seems like Your father in law had good taste.
Yep, we’re all snobs here, except Uber....


Try that

if it doesn’t work go to the web page (not the ap) and type his store name in the search box.  
@Uber,   Do you know the first Moxy Album?  The black one with uncredited guitar solos by Tommy Bolin?   Just in case, was thinking might be right in your wheelhouse.  
@reubent well not that they’d admit anyway....


’queen of the deep’ baby!

+1 on the 10 years after.  At least someone is exhibiting good taste...

...I feel all this will inevitably lead to Montrose 1....
Have to say that if your in a sort of juvenile mood like myself and want to rattle your brain with some early hard rock that first Sir Lord Baltimore record (“Kingdom Come”) is quite effective.

never saw this film but the music is incredibly emotional.  Lots of cello.   Sounds well produced.  More accessible Maybe than much of his other stuff.

every time I listen to this I am amazed by the originality of the arrangements and the facility of the musicianship.  It really is genius.
