    I listen to Old and in the Way, Garcia's bluegrass band, and liked the album Workingman's Dead. Beyond that, when they were at the height of their popularity I was into jazz and not listening to any rock music.

    I'm more of a jazz listener myself. And I was never a big Dead fan although I'll listen to them for a week or two once a year or two. Right now I'm still on my acoustic / folk listening kick. Playing some Martin Simpson this morning. And I bought a couple used Tim O'Brien albums.

    His Home Recordings record, out this year, is excellent.

    Punk/new wave/post-punk etc. part three.


    Elvis Costello - This Year's Model (second album from 1978, plus thirteen bonus tracks).




    The Cramps - Songs the Lord Taught Us (debut album from 1980, plus five bonus tracks):




    The Cure - Pornography (fourth album from 1982):

    '...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).

    I agree - least I'm presuming you are referring to American Beauty & Workingman's Dead.

    Edit - should have read the next few posts before adding my comment - still reckon Sugar Magnolia is hard song to dislike.

    The 50th Anniversary of American Beauty is out this year. I always liked Workingman's Dead but never listened to AB. Listening now - nice.

    The North Star Grassman and the Ravens - Sandy Denny.

    This album came out in 1971 on the renowned Island record label - I clearly recall the quality of the vinyl it was pressed on was fabulous. I guess in todays terms it would be regarded as an audiophile pressing.

    An album that was regarded as an oddball release when it first came out, but for me its quaintness has an endearing quality - decidedly British in its sound it is probably still an acquired taste.

    RT isn't as quirky and bloody English as he used to be. He's more popular in America now.

    I have to say that the last number of albums of his are for me not the Richard Thompson I grew up with and loved. Don't get me wrong they are decent enough but its almost as if he is producing his music in a style more acceptable to a larger audience rather than being true to his roots.
    His choice I guess but I'm glad I still have the early albums to listen to.
