What Are You Listening To?
Meat Loaf - Bat Out Of Hell. It surfaced at the top of a pile of CD's and was grabbed on my way out. Haven't listened to this in very many moons but could still sing along ... and I still love this song ...

Gerry Rafferty's Sleepwalking. There's always something to be enjoyed, even on his so-called lesser releases. Remarkable talent. This track stood out for me today ... I wonder if he was admonishing himself, as well as anyone else who happened to stumble across these words "At The Right Moment"! ...

Heaven Can Wait is my favourite of that album too Ruby.
I have most of Meat Loaf's albums, a quality artist especially when Jim Steinman is writing and producing him...
my favourite album of his is the follow up "deadringer"...
Jim Steinman's album "bad for good" is also superb IMO...
another interesting album is "original sin" by Pandora's Box who had a female vocalist, they only made one album
and Steinman wrote and produced most of the  tracks, well worth a listen if you can find it,
I have that one on vinyl, am yet to find the cd of it...
it contains the original version of this song that Celine Dion covered a couple of years later:

Blues Pills "lady in gold: cd, 2016:

when you look at the name of the band, the title and the cover art psychedelic comes to mind,
well it did for me when I first heard on Spotify as a new release but I was wrong...
its blues rock/r+b...
second set from this Swedish rock band....
love almost everything on here including the solitary cover,Tony Joe white's classic "elements and things"...
a very good album, heres the title track:

David Gilmour "about face" cd, 1984:

Dave's second solo set....
a hint of reggae on one track, some pop/rock, but mostly the sound we expect of him...
a couple co written with Pete Townshend and an instrumental which , incidently, I love...
my second favourite album of his after Rattle That Lock...
album was a commercial failure back in the day but I love it...
I had no idea until a few minutes ago when I opened up Wiki that my favourite track
was Gilmour's tribute to John Lennon, a man who inspired him to enter the music biz....

Camel - Dust and Dreams - the more I listen to this album the more I like it and the more I find to like about it. I first time I took this album with me on holiday on the Amalfi Coast in Italy many moons ago, I sat on the patio of the villa I rented and watched the storms roll in from the sea and immersed myself in this album for about a week. According to the sleeve notes it was inspired by John Steinbeck's novel 'The Grapes of Wrath' set in the Great Depression in the USA. I don't know what it is about this album that gets to me but it is an absolute masterpiece. An unassuming piece of genius. Nobody, and I mean nobody, gets the guitar to talk like Andrew Latimer can. Orchestral swells, rhythmic synths darting in and out, soaring lead lines and funky grooves. What more could you possibly want? When I listen to this I just take off. Magnificent. Musicians like this are few and far between.
