    Beautiful !
    Folk music friends might also appreciate a Mimi Farina & Tom Jans concert from 1972 that surprisingly popped up at BigO: http://bigozine2.com/roio/?p=1260
    Have a great day!

      Birgit,
      I love Kate Rusby, and this is a new one for me too. I heard it somewhere and went to iTunes to download the album. I wasn’t disappointed.

      Thank you for the link. I downloaded that album also.

    Katmah on the cutting edge?

    We know that Ms KM is more than slightly inclined towards Kate Rusby and here we have a track from Kate’s new album 20 which was released at the end of October, the original versions being autographed by Ms Rusby. This duet is with the barely known, except in Scunthorpe, Stephen Fretwell

    Obviously our friend in Germany has jumped on the Katmah/KateRusby train.

    I am pondering whether or not to risk the new Brian Eno “Lux”. Love Eno back to Roxy days and still think “Before and After Science” is a masterpiece. “Lux” is 75 minutes of ambient music and I am not really sure if I do ambient. For $9.99 down the Best Buy, the risk is not terrible

      My Dear Hedley,
      I couldn’t help myself. Once I heard this song, I had to go ahead and get the album, but it is not her new one. It is on an older album, Sleepless, from 1999.

      I do wish just once I was on the cutting edge.

      $9.99 seems not really a risk!

      Hedley, ambient music? You’re kidding.
      Even if it’s Eno. Same with Robert Fripp. His 1979 “Exposure” is one of my favorite records, but I don’t know who can listen to his 80’s Frippertronics without falling asleep.
      Englands great Terry Reid has just released “Live in London”. If you like his voice, it’s better than his overloaded studio albums, but the slide guitar makes it sometimes still a little bit too sweet. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MU_wQO6u7BQ

        Great question. I am interested in whatever Brian Eno is doing even though it takes me in to areas where I lack familiarity or interest. With music so cheap it isnt too risky to experiment and I will probably dislike the result but you never know
        I have the new Madness and The Who “Live at Hull” sitting on my desk unopened. My copy of Peter Gabriel’s “Back to Front Tour” from Auburn Hills arrived and you can hear me yelling out from the crowd like an idiot !

    • Birgit Says:

      Hedley, I’m just listening to this Gabriel concert on YouTube and I like it. I hadn’t followed his music for quite some time, thanks for reminding.

        Birgit – Pick up the 3 CD boxset of So 25th anniversary Edition. It includes an excellent concert from Athens.

        Gabriel did a short tour of the US in conjunction with the reissue under the name “Back to Front” and it included The Palace of Auburn Hills in Michigan. My wife was under the weather, and I went to the show with my daughter. The concert was released under The Encore Series at $15.00 for the discs, so we picked up a nice souvenir of the show.

        Next up is The Magnetic Fields on Thursday night at the Crofoot in Pontiac – a very small venue with excellent accoustics. I have been chatting by email with Claudia Gonson and am excited for their arrival.

    I do wish she would schedule a tour here!
