Fiona Boyes.
Aussie Blues, 4 albums of great quality.
"Blues For Hard Times"
"Box & Dice"
"Professin' the Blues"
"Voodoo in the Shadows" (Released 19 Oct 2018)

All available on Tidal, makes an excellent and varied playlist (3 hours 20 minutes) if you are in a bluesy mood.

My pleasure Bruce
There is even a hint of Zydeco on the new release "Don't Leave Your Feet At Home".
My only criticism is that the recording levels on (Reference Recordings) "Professin' the Blues" are a tad low and I have to reach for the remote, but hey ho, who am I to complain about available audio pleasure blush

At the risk of becoming a bore, I will continue with a recommendation for lovers of brass, specifically the trumpet and flugelhorn.

Pacho Flores "Fractales". IMO a truly great recording on DG, MQA 96k.

Thanks for that one Hector.

Some great music and what a mix of styles.

Oddly I found the brass sounded a little nasal (DSP33s) but the percussion and dynamics were all there - must try it on my big speakers.

Hi Gianni,

Understand your comment. It just might be that it was very cold when recording with the Arctic Philharmonic Orchestra. cool

If you have 31 minutes and 39 seconds to spare listen to this:

Monte Montgomery "Live At The Caravan Of Dreams" Disc2 Tracks 6 & 7. Took Too Long / Romeo and Juliet.

On Tidal, Truly Wonderful Live Music!

Time to reacquaint with 'The Beatles' White Album in its new Super Deluxe Edition.
Mono, Stereo, Hi-Res and 5.1 and an absolute treasure trove of Beatles-busking the songs in their early unfinished form including the famed 'Esher Demos'. Complete with a very nice book, the perfect Christmas gift.

Mostly harmless. Comfortably numb.

It doesn't happen very often that you are hit between the eyes and ears with something new that passes through your sinuses and finds a comfortable place in your brain that is forever installed to memory and available for instant recall.
New to me Foy Vance (apologies to the cognisant who are already aware) an extraordinary singer songwriter from Bangor NI, his album "The Wild Swan" MQA 44k is IMO fantastic.
Track 3 'Coco', only 2.30 long is wonderful for fathers and daughters
Track 6 'Burden' is for all brothers.
Enjoy Hector

Edit Add "Foy Vance Live In London" to get to know him better, great recording.

Great stuff.

The first track is not representative of the rest of the album (and not very well recorded either) so don't stop half way through it - the rest is as good as the best acoustic Springsteen/ Van Morrison. Superb listening for old codgers like us.
