  1. I see Blue + Album art, I immediately visualize Weezer’s debut

  2. …followed quickly (after clicking send of course!) by Joni Mitchell


    1. Both albums are liberally endowed with blueness, to be sure. Could be another theme emerging… favourite blue albums!


      1. A theme I’d wholeheartedly support!


  3. Gosh, these are really beautiful, especially the first two.


    1. Glad you enjoyed them.

      More blue to come.

  5. B ugger me the old-timer said.
    L ittle pinpoints of light were spinning in the sky
    U ntil then, he’d not drunk Brasso.
    E njoying a drink was one thing but…
    M ight never have to drink again;
    O r not.
    O h.
    N ight-sky, moon-split, spinning apart.
    A deadly night.
    H ollowed head; hallowed?
    M ight just keep spinning.
    A ll ’round the sky.
    D elicate, like.
    J ust going gently.
    A round, around.
    M y head split in four.
    A round, around.
    L aughing.

  6. Delicious! Do like an acrostic verse.

    Enjoyed the Ahmad Jamal too. He doesn’t figure in the VC collection, which is a bit odd given the preponderance of pianists.

    And if Billy Cobham is responsible for an outburst of creativity, bring it on! I say.


    1. Oh no! I have truly let you down by allowing nearly four years to pass before seeing this comment and grasping your unrealized pain. I can help! Get you some Ahmad Jamal Trio Cross Country Tour 1958-1961 into you pronto if you have not yet. The album may be purple but it will definitely wash out the blue.

      1. Four years and I still have no Ahmad J in the collection. But thanks to your comment, I now have a quest. Into the purple valley…

    1. All from the VotF shelves?


      1. Every one of them! CDs though (so I’ll show myself out).

        1. But you’re coming round, I hear…
          Enjoying Bersuit Vergarabat: Libertinaje right now. Very jaunty!


          1. Possibly the only crowd of Argentines I would ever willingly choose to enter amongst…

            1. Trying to think what I have in the way of Sth American music/bands. Can’t come up with much, I’m afraid to say. Banda Elastica from Mexico, but that’s the wrong side of the Panama Canal, isn’t it?


            2. Bet there’s some Brazilian somewhere in your stacks.

            3. Yes, of course. Deodato, Jobim, Gilberto. But I’m sure there’s some more prog too…
