Been listening to these CDs over last couple of weeks:
1. David Sylvian - The Good Son vs The Only Daughter
Remixes of the 'blemish' album - remarkably coherent, total retakes on some tracks, warmth brought to some of the more stark pieces from the original album.
2. Porcupine Tree - Stars Die
A 2-CD retrospective.
3. Harold Budd - Avalon Sutra
Double album - been on my playlist for a while now. Keeps haunting me.
4. Harold Budd - The Pavilion of Dreams
The first album I heard by Budd - still love it after all these years.
5. Brian Eno - Another Day on Earth
Eno does voices after so long - great depth that keeps coming through on each listen.
6. Fripp & Eno - The Equatorial Stars
Great for easing those tensions...
7. Jimi Hendrix - Electric Ladyland
I just love listening to someone push the boundaries, and those melodies, hooks, riffs!
8. Iarla O'Lionnaird - Invisible Fields
The singer from Afro Celts. Third solo album - a work of great late night beauty.
9. Jonny Greenwood - Bodysong
I love the jazz blasts on this - and the classical pieces - incredibly diverse.
10. Tom Waits - Alice: the complete demos
Great to hear this alongside the original album - the 'interlude' pieces are intriguing, and the singing is fantastic, often very funny.
