The Music

Yesterday a couple of things happened that emphasised the power of music to move me.

When I was listening to music on shuffle at work in the afternoon Richard Thomson’s cover of Oops I Did It Again from the album 1000 Years of Popular Music came on. Whenever this …


Festive Five 2015

In hindsight 2015 looks like a mixed-bag for buying new music. While I’ve picked-up quite a few albums, when I look down the list, I don’t have particularly warm feelings for many of them.So much so that I’ve just deleted Flying Saucer Attack’s eponymous instrumental …


Inheritance Tracks

Once again I’ve stolen the concept of a ‘Festive 5’ from a friend who has been compiling a list for some years now. The idea is you boil your favourite music released in one year down to just 5 tracks. This is my choice for …

Tubular Bells

I was lucky enough to be able to go and see a performance of Tubular Bells For Two performed at the Edinburgh Fringe this weekend. As someone who loved listening to original version of the album by Mike Oldfield the chance to see it performed live was not to be …


Desert Island Discs

Nice!

One of the things that I find most interesting about listening to Desert Island Discs on Radio 4 is how people approach their musical selections. I’m pretty sure everyone who has listened to the programme has come up with their own list, and my sitting down to write this …

‘Versus’, ‘vs.’ It’s such an easy word to use to find out what is better... Mac vs. Windows. BBEdit vs. TextMate. Labour vs. Conservative.

I recently bought a CD with two different version of Miles Davis’ ‘Kind of Blue’ on a double CD — one in …
