An arduous morning at the Poplars Farm shop in Frampton Cotterell is over and it’s time to plug in the elderly iPod for perhaps the last time (until next week), turn up the stacks of Marshall amps and play that random shuffle of music for no obvious reason.
Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends.
- Love Made Visible by Delays. The impossibly talented Greg Gilbert and his pals with this lush song from their record Everything’s The Rush.
- Live and Let Die by Guns N Roses. Cracking cover of a Macca Bond tune, back in the days when Slash didn’t need to wear a top hat to cover up his balding pate.
- Ride Boy Ride by the Marmalade. Latter day Marmalade, written by the brilliant Hughie Nicholson. Lovely.
- Voulez-Vous by the cast of Mamma Mia. Cracking.
- My Hobo Heart by Brian Wilson and Van Dyke Parks. A bang average tune from the Orange Crate Art album rescued by multitracked Brian voices.
- Behind That Locked Door by George Harrison. Country-tinged beauty from George’s iconic All Things Must Pass album.
- He’s Misstra Know-It-All by Stevie Wonder. If you don’t have Innervisions, where have you been? Stevie plays everything but bass guitar. He got the legendary Willie Weeks to play that bit. Incredible.
- La Femme D’Argent by Air. You might think you don’t know this one, but I’ll bet you do. Moon Safari is a great record.
- Sad But True by Metallica. From the Metallica album entitled Metallica , this is classic Metallica.
- Rock and Roll Stew by Traffic. At a guess, this is Jim Capaldi on lead vocals. Lovely.
Well, that was a bit different. That’s all, folks.
