Amazon maybe consistently one of the cheapest places to buy music, but you can often pickup some jems from other places such as recordstore.co.uk. For example you can pickup a number of signed copies of albums and/or limited editions. In terms of price – the only real difference is postage unless you order over £50. So always worth checking out. I’ve ordered my copy of the next Delays album (Star Tiger Star Ariel) from RecordStore.co.uk
The latest Peter Gabriel podcast has some fine news. Aside from extending his Red Blood (no guitars, no drums, orchestra) tour which features his Scratch My Back album on which I’ve already blogged, Peter has said he will take the Orchestra back into the studio to record the reworking of his own songs. The recording could be out later this summer. Then he is going to pick up his original album project again.
Only dissappointment is the new dates don’t include a return to the UK.
It is still early, but Scratch My Back may make the album of the year in my books.
We caught Faithless live last night touring their new album The Dance. I had been disappointed by the album with the exception of the monster Sun To Me. But in a live context (fo Faithless think more of a super club) the new album made a lot of sense and sounded great.
Of course they also performed their big numbers such as God Is A DJ and lesser numbers like Flowerstand Man.
