Blondie – Parallel Lines
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:
- A1 Hanging On The Telephone 2:17
- A2 One Way Or Another 3:31
- A3 Picture This 2:53
- A4 Fade Away And Radiate 3:57
- A5 Pretty Baby 3:16
- A6 I Know But I Don’t Know 3:53
- B1 11:59 3:19
- B2 Will Anything Happen? 2:55
- B3 Sunday Girl 3:01
- B4 Heart Of Glass 3:54
- B5 I’m Gonna Love You Too 2:03
- B6 Just Go Away 3:21
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.
- A1 Late November 4:25
- A2 Blackwaterside 4:07
- A3 The Sea Captain 3:07
- A4 Down In The Flood 3:17
- A5 John The Gun 4:35
- B1 Next Time Around 4:20
- B2 The Optimist 3:21
- B3 Let’s Jump The Broomstick 2:40
- B4 Wretched Wilbur 2:34
- B5 The North Star Grassman And The Ravens 3:25
- B6 Crazy Lady Blues 3:21
