Well done, I think as first pick your prize should be that everyone should be forced to listen to your choices

  • Sting — Duets

This is a harsh inclusion in that list, her record earlier this year was actually a pretty good jazz vocal album and still gets the occasional Sunday morning spin in my house.

Also pleased to see the love for AK/DK on here. I first heard them a couple of years ago stalking Snapped Ankles on Spotify and noticed they were listening to them a lot :smiley:


Yeah, sorry @Octobadger, was just looking for MoR-type releases as a little jest - struggled to get to 5. I am sure there is a lot more rubbish out there, I just don’t recognise it (and am way too too lazy to do more than a quick google). Please accept my humblest of apologies (and don’t take my post too seriously … or personally!). In any event, as recompense, I will now listen to Norah Jones, just as soon as Ane Brun has finished her piano version of Run and Hide (tough act to follow, so let’s see if Norah is up to the challenge) :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

No worries, my own reply was actually meant tongue in cheek as I think there was a different album in the list that some of our members would really come to bat for!

The Norah Jones album isn’t one that is likely to trouble anyone’s album of the year list, but is quite a polished set of languorous jazz tunes.

Ha, right! Didn’t want to upset you, as I very often find our musical tastes overlapping, so I am always interested in your recommendations. In the midst of the deluxe version of Pick Me Up Off the Floor (which I suspect is the album you refer to) right now. Not bad, but, yeah, you know it is a little MoR. I am now in the live recordings at the end, which I do prefer to the original album. A little less produced and polished and (in my view) all the better for it.

Now, which is that other album you refer to, I wonder … :roll_eyes:

Enjoy your evening @Octobadger. Once Norah has finished plinking on the old joanna - or right now strumming on the old gee-tar - I’ll revisiting Teho Teardo and Tori Handsley to decide which will fill out my top 5 for November for @BMS1’s thread. It’s been a good month for me - I have over 20 albums in my November rotation list.

Love’s Secret Domain is back next year. Looks lovely. Pricey but lovely. And the vinyl’s sold out here already


You’ve probably seen that this is back in stock at Norman. I actually ordered it directly from the French record label. Just hoping I now don’t get hit with a post-Brexit customs duty charge… Crazily expensive, but I can’t resist when it comes to Coil.

The strange turn of events however is that shortly after this was announced, Wax Trax announced that THEY were doing a different reissue, also coming out this year. So now there are duelling LSD reissues! Like the big idiot I am, I’ll probably end up buying both…
