Ray Davies - "americana"  cd ,  2017:

his fifth studio solo set outside The Kinks...
his highest charting solo set in his homeland also peaking at #15 over there...
sort of a concept album...
songs about his experiences in the US since his first visit in the mid sixties with The Kinks
to the present....
most songs sound like The Kinks, mainly their quieter material, but a couple of rockers on it also...
superb album, up there musically and lyrically with the best of his career IMO...
will  probably end up being my favourite album of 2017,
superb effort and well worth the time listening to it if you haven't already....

couldn't get the last link in the previous post to attach to the post, so here it is,
one of the rockers from Ray Davies'  "Americana" album:

NEIL YOUNG & CRAZY HORSE "live rust" cd, 1979:

been playing this one over the last week or so...
superb live album, one of rock music's greatest live albums IMO...
every song is a cracker...
I hear this album and I realise that Mr'Young hasn't written/recorded anything of this calibre
in the last twenty five years...
Neil at his best for sure!

Revelations - Uriah Heep - a compilation of tracks, mainly the classics. Good stuff.

HEART – Dreamboat Annie

[Image: 220px-Dreamboatannie.jpg]

 
Another one from the pile of records. Not obscure or anything like that, but I did not have it before …
 
These sisters, Ann and Nancy Wilson were great, and unsurprisingly, hugely popular at the time – 1975. Ann had/has a magnificent voice for rock – effortlessly true. I know Little Queen fairly well, and am familiar with some of the songs from Dreamboat Annie but am not very well acquainted with the rest of their catalogue.
 
This is a good mix and the production/presentation is excellent; liner notes on quality card and a gatefold filled with photos, all very slick. Great strategy to make and package a quality debut album – it sets the tone IMHO. Their career was in the competent hands of Mike Flicker who discovered, signed and produced them. He didn’t do too badly out of the deal either – win, win for everyone.
 
The “Dreamboat Annie” song/theme is made in three sections that are spread throughout the album. This is the reprise and the final tack … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SVLHqB7x5KE
 
One of their better known singles and a rocker … “Crazy on You” …

Asia - Asia - the only album of theirs worth buying. All the others were just playing catch-up.

The Doobie Brothers - Taking It To The Streets - just a great album to chill out to after a shitty day.

Incantations - Mike Oldfield. I remember when I first bought this album and played it my late father happened to be in the room and I could see him wondering what on earth his strange son was taking at the time. Everyone else was buying chart albums and here he had this strange kid who was coming home with weird records that made no sense to him at all. But he did like Heavy Horses - he played that one a lot when I was out of the house.
