Tim Buckley died from drugs soon after his third album which is very sad. Tim and Jeff left us with the soaring ‘Song to the Siren’ and ‘Hallelujah ‘ respectively, all hail the Buckley dynasty.
The album got to number one in the US before being booted out by their rivals The Beatles with ‘Sgt Pepper’s’. Isn’t it ironic, as Alanis says
A fine presentation of a fine product at a fine venue. There was no mention of the “S” word at the “W” Hotel and so the newly launched “Bluesound” brand had all the space it deserved
The difficult ‘second album’ turns out to be an ethereal, reflective, slightly downbeat but lovingly put together collection of well produced songs
Hilariously Love were supported by The Doors, which probably sums up their career
Alt-J, meaning the delta symbol you get from a Mac were one of the first artists I had on this blog. Their second offering is made to little fanfare, as far as I am aware, considering they bagged the Mercury Music Prize in 201
Nice and uncomplicated folk rock from San Francisco’s The Beau Brummels, largely unaffected by the drug infused ‘Summer of Love’
So an album of reflection, that is growing on me I have to say, it was never going to be a revolutionary ‘Achtung Baby’, these guys are comfortable but luckily for me, good at what they do
I’m quite a big fan of the prolific, excellent, Ryan Adams, I certainly have several of his albums, with his second ‘Gold’ being my very favourite, probably in my all time top 10
Going back to the ‘Concrete Love’ title, I’m not getting it, there is no mention in the lyric book or a track. I suppose we’re probably not supposed to. Anyway, it is all good.
