Every Record I Own – B is for Blondie – Parallel Lines

Blondie ‎– Parallel Lines

blondie It’s been raining forever in Bristol so on a whim we went to Chippenham. “We’ll always have Chippenham”. I had no idea what to expect so coming across a fine selection of charity shops was really exciting. It’s indicative of the dull ness of my life that I was literally jumping up and down with joy to find a coolie hat for 99p.

I finally bought this album. I hadn’t before because I always though that I had it already.

Favorite track at the moment:

Every Record I Own – D is for Sandy Denny – The North Star Grassman And The Ravens

R-1748876-1247055939 Sandy Denny ‎– The North Star Grassman And The Ravens

Sandy Denny has a voice that makes my spine feel coated in treacle. I had the Optimist as a terrible unshifting ear-worm for weeks after I bought this which was recently for a tenner from a Bristol record shop.

I can’t really hear different versions of Blackwaterside since I know the Bert Jansch one so well so lets just discount that as a viable option on here.

Lovely album but a bit weird that all the tracks just tail off in the studio, it sounds like the band went on for hours after each one and the listener misses out.
