Originally released in 2003, as a Paddy McAloon solo album, the remastered double LP was released in 2019, under Prefab Sprouts name. In 1999, Paddy experienced detached retinas, which left him almost blind and housebound. During this time he found comfort in listening to shortwave radio broadcasts and thus became the impetus for this treasure; a true orch-pop masterpiece. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• PaddyMcAloon PrefabSprout ITrawlTheMegahertz OrchPop 2003 LibertyRecords 2019Remaster SonyMusic BlackVinyl Vinyl 33RPM LP sonymusic 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

In yesterday: Guy Bonnet: “s/t” (1974) LP. Delightful French pop, often orchestrated, that hits a certain sweet spot for some of us. Packaged in a gatefold sleeve with an inner flap to hold the record. Since this isn’t a crazy cult record, it’s not awfully expensive when it turns up. Recommended for the romantic European in a velvet blazer with ascot in all of us. (Please get him out of me! He smells like cigarettes and cognac!) guybonnet frenchpop singersongwriter chanson orchpop recordcollector recordcollection rarerecords vinylcollection

New album out tomorrow called “The Coming Joy”. This songs on this album are intended to help us live with future glory in mind and to rejoice in our assurance - if God is the one who rescued us, then He is “able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy,” (Jude 24). This album is the result of a lot of people giving their time and talent. Check Spotify, Apple Music, and all that tomorrow.

New song out tomorrow - “Joy” with Cynthia Davenport. This is a song of expectation. Following Jesus means setting our eyes where He set His. He endured the cross, scorning the shame - why? For the joy set before Him. In Psalm 2, God says to His Son, “Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession.” That is how Jesus could endure the cross. And we have a reward waiting for us - we will see God. We will be His and He will be ours forever. This is what motivates us, what moves us to lay down our lives for the sake of the gospel. It’s not for something we can see now, but for the joy that is yet to come. 1 Peter 1:3–4 (ESV): Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you worshipmusic joysetbeforeus 1peter soulmusic gospelchoir abletonlive amazinggrace overjoyed heaven comelordjesus gospel orchpop chamberpop orchestra orchestral orchestralpop forthejoy

Happiest of birthdays to Alexander Khodchenko In 2010, Alex, a Kiev, Ukraine resident, found me on Myspace and suggested we collaborate on a song which turned out to be “Snowflake In The Rain”. We enjoyed the results, named ourselves 8X8, and kept writing, trading music back and forth via file sharing. never talking or meeting, only emailing. Since then, a crazy decade has nearly passed, MySpace is barely a memory, and 8X8 recently released its fourth album, “New Data New Day.” Alex and I still haven’t spoken or met, though it feels inevitable we one day will. Our musical relationship couldn’t have occurred in any other era. For us, these are the good old days. Happy Birthday, Alex! psychedelic psychedelicpop orchpop chillpop chillwave procolharum thezombies sydbarrett powerpop

In recently: Rick Price & Mike Sheridan: “This Is To Certify • The Gemini Anthology” (2004) double-CD. I’ve been hearing some of the songs collected here for years on various legit and bootleg psych comps. The best of these songs have a yearning, emotional, post-psych quality to them that comes over as very “Fading Yellow.” In the Goldilocks zone between popsike, singer-songwriter, and orch-pop comes 39 tracks of mostly excellent songs with a few turkeys peppered in (“Top Ten Record,” and uninspired cover of “Mr. Bojangles,” some corny song about Jesus you could scrape off the end of the second disc). Though this came out 15 years ago, I’m glad I finally found all these delightful songs in one place. geminirecords mikesheridan rickprice popsike singersongwriter psychedelic orchpop fadingyellow

Joan Baez, JOAN (1967) & DAVID'S ALBUM (1969) 🤹‍♀️ Happy Birthday Joan Baez! In addition to possessing a three octave range, stupefying skill on the guitar, and an unfaltering devotion to the causes of peace and racial equality, Baez is a master of genre experimentation. These are two of our favourites, on which she tackles 60s orchestral pop and Nashville country, respectively. A true living legend, a queen, a hypnotist collector.

In today: Trevor Billmuss: “Family Apology” (1970) LP. I’ve been looking to score a copy of this at a reasonable price for some time now. This sort of peculiar record (orch pop?) seems like not only could it have been released in its era, but that it was destined to be an artifact that only a few people (me! you?) would ever feel enthusiasm for. Who was this guy? trevorbillmuss familyapology orchpop orchestralpop popsike psychedelic vinyl vinylcollection vinylcollector rarerecords charismarecords

In yesterday: The Big Pink (South Korea) mini-LP skeeve CD edition of Sounds of Modification's sole 1968 s/t album. Pop-sike/sunshine pop with lavish (at times absurdly overblown in an endearing manner) orchestral arrangements. Clocking in under 30 minutes, this is likely all these fellows had in them. But it's a jubilant little relic in a style I adore. soundsofmodification popsike bigpink psychedelic lsd sunshinepop orchpop harmonypop 1968

Woe be unto you if you elect to ignore this record. The s/t LP by Dave Antrell circa 1970 (no follow-up records, no CD or digital release) seems to have little cult following or collector appeal. But-but-but it's a true gem, an essentially perfect baroque pop marvel that moves between ebullience and melancholia, all propelled forward by Antrell's warm voice and lyrics lush with longing. The songs "Karen" and "Lost In A Dream" may make you weep. Mr Antrell, wherever you are, quite possibly dead, I love your LP. Koreans need to release this on disc. daveantrell orchpop baroquepop poppsych psychedelic lsd dreampop lostinadream vinyl vinylgram vinylporn vinylcollector vinylcollection rarerecords singersongwriter

Goobers who take the format fetishist line that "only vinyl is real" trade a love of music for a love of objects. Case in point: these new The Move deluxe CDs from the Esoteric Recordings label from the UK. They feature such a wealth of material with stunning sound that only fools (or those foolish enough not to be fans of The Move) would turn their noses up over the shiny silver discs. themove shazam poppsych popsike orchpop elo psychedelic lsd esotericrecordings
