Week 40 - Fri 7 Oct
Welcome to the RPM Record Club Seven Day Soundtrack, week ending Friday 7th October 2022. Time to settle back into your comfiest comfy chair and imagine there are no crazy politicians or mental dictators for a few hours, just great music....over to....
"Here's a couple I heard this week whilst out and about."
"Hi RPMers, Hope you are all fit and well."
"For your info...."
"And here are three tracks I've played this week..."
"Hi RPMers. Writing to you all on a wet miserable Wednesday looking forward to putting on the PMs speech at the conference of the uncaring and watching the slow handclap....
Flat Foot Flewzy by New Rhythm and Blues Quartet -
"Next is a tune by Mahalia Jackson. I was clearing out my dads house yesterday and came across a record of hers including several others less desirable ( Slayed by Slade anyone?)."
Just a Closer Walk With Thee performed by Mahalia Jackson -
"Lastly is a tune that kept popping onto my daily Spotify mix, dread to think why, hopefully more to do with my other music choices than personal attitudes or outlook."
Street People by Bobby Charles -
"Till next time and possibly a new conservative leader...?" (Loving your optimism here, Kev. Tim)
"In my diatribe a couple of weeks ago regarding imaginary enemies that the Tories would blame for their own ineptitude I neglected to mention an "anti-growth coalition," but I suspect Liz made this one up especially for Conference. It is of course just another variation on the old Tory conspiracy theory which presents them as friends of "The People" standing up against a "metropolitan liberal elite." (Crikey- do they mean me?) Thank goodness we've got all those non-elitist multi-millionaire Eton and Oxbridge toffs looking after our best interests. Remind me to doff my cap or tug my forelock next time I see one.
"Best wishes and good health to one and all."
"Hi everyone, hope you all had a good week . Here’s my 3."
"As the Buzzcocks once put it so succinctly, 'Noise Annoys', so here's three which really 'float my boat' (or whatever this weeks 'hip' phraseology is!!)."
Black Rebel MotorCycle Club- 'Spread your love' (from 'BRMC' LP released 3rd April 2001. Virgin label)
Jesus and Mary Chain- 'Blues from a gun' (from 'Automatic' 10" die cut gatefold sleeve LP released 9th October 1989. Blanco Y Negro label).
Buzzcocks- 'Moving away from the pulsebeat' (from 'Another music in a different kitchen' LP released April 1978. United Artists label)
And news just in............
Under Dubwood by The Dubwood Allstars - "Dylan Thomas + Richard Burton reworked by Jamaican producer King Tubby. What's not to love? 😁"
The Type by Sarah Kay - "She's awesome, in my opinion."
Bonus Track - "Will it be in? Up to you, curator Tim. Not so long since my last cheeky extra, but Prof John Cooper Carke is hard to better.. 😁" (Pushing yer luck a bit, but go on....Tim)
I'll Fly Away being played on the hammered dulcimer by Martin Moore -
Country Life performed by The Watersons -
It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding) by Bob Dylan -
If I Needed You Emmylou Harris - "A song written by Townes Van Zandt and recorded by Emmylou with Don Williams on her album 'Cimarron'."
Busted Ray Charles - "Here's a song for today from the great Ray Charles Robinson."
Killing The Blues by Robert Plant and Alison Krauss - "Revisiting the brilliant album Raising Sand for this track. Saw them at Wembley when they toured the album - unforgettable."
"Here's my three picks from this week's listening."
Guitar Town by Steve Earle - "Wednesday was vinyl night at the Sun in Pickering and I'd been asked to bring an LP to start the night. Steve Earle's 1986 album Guitar Town, was what I took along. Here's the opening and title track...."
The Swallow's Tail Reel performed by Dervish - "Had Dervish's Spirit album on in the car for my trip to York this week, and although it's possibly their weakest album after the pointless Irish Song Book effort, it does contain this brilliant version of my second favourite Irish reel...my favourite being Cooley's, of course."
'Till Next Time...
