    Suddenly had to hear this! I regard them as a "kind-of-modern-day-QUEEN".

    Closed off nostalgia night with what I consider one of the best debut albums ever - the 1969 first LP from the flawed genius that was Nick Drake.

    Then I just had to move on to a logical next album given the title track was about Nick Drake.

    Solid Air - John Marytn.

    As much as I love my classical music and it makes up over 90% of my listening these days occasional nostalgia nights are most enjoyable.

    Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers - Caravan (Riverside/OJC)
    IMO, the band on this LP was one of the very best incarnations of the Jazz Messengers -- with Freddie Hubbard, Wayne Shorter, Curtis Fuller, Cedar Walton & Reggie Workman. The same group is also heard on Free for All (Blue Note) and Ugetsu (Riverside/OJC).

    40-track Chuck Berry comp, issued by MCA back in the 1990s. My only real beef is that there are no sleeve-notes at all (recording dates would have been nice at least...) but there are a couple of pleasant surprises on this, especially the seven-minute 1972 live version of Reelin' and Rockin' (which I think was from the same gig which inflicted his cover of Dave Bartholomew's My Ding-A-Ling upon the UK charts).

    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    Kenny Werner - The Melody (Pirouet)
    with Johannes Wiedenmueller & Ari Hoenig

    A terrific, long-standing jazz trio; one of my favorite groups out there today.

    They try to mimic Queen but Queen will never be as good as them
