As for a favorite Knopfler album? I'd have to say Ragpicker's Dream. "Quality Shoe" is one of my favorites. smile


Cool -- Ragpicker does seem somewhat "of a piece" with Tracker. I love the little slices of life that Mark picks out to focus on ... often itinerant/working class American lives. Looking forward to revisiting these tracks when my own speakers are in. cool

Genesis - Trespass. Seriously under-rated. You hear people say "early Genesis is the only real Genesis" but not Trespass because it's too early and it's not the same lineup (different guitarist & drummer).

To paraphrase Nick Fury from Iron Man 2, Trespass is "the realest Genesis you're ever gonna meet" IMO. The CD doesn't seem to have been horribly remastered and compressed, so it really shows off a system nicely. The good old days when bass pedals carried the melody.

Funny, I was just listening to both pre-Peter and post-Peter Genesis last week. I didn't stop liking them sans Peter. I just saw it as having an additional artist's records I wanted to have.

The thing that really brought mid-70's Genesis to mind was the new Steven Wilson. As someone here has already said, a really worthwhile "get." There are so many passages that sound just (and I mean "just") like a 33 1/3 LP; 33 1/3 of mid-70's Genesis, 33 1/3 same-period Yes, and 33 1/3 same period Floyd(but ALL that you've never heard before).

The boy DOES do his R & R homework!

The players are amazing. Some of the best keyboards and drums (Adam Holzman & Marco Minnemann) this old man has heard in a while.

The new Knopfler I gave away to someone I thought might like it more than I did. Chris, I'm keeping this one.

I just gave the new Ben Howard CD a listen (his second). Hmm….. It’s OK, but not nearly as good as his first CD. If you like Ben Howard’s first CD, you’ll like the new one, but it just doesn’t have the same energy as his first CD. Recording wise, it’s good. No problems with sound quality.

Melora Creager - Fa La La: The Bastardy of Shakespeare's Madrigals, Volume 1.5

She keeps releasing new stuff as both Rasputina and Melora Creager. A lot of output lately, so it's hard to keep expecting a lot, but I'm enjoying this one. I also got her new Rasputina album on CD yesterday, so I need to rip that one and listen to that as well.
