27th August

Terry Callier – Ordinary Joe

This is classic soul, another one pilfered from my Father’s record collection. Terry Callier had an interesting career, enduring a couple of decades in the doldrums before making a comeback in the 90’s, notably collaborating with Beth Orton and Massive Attack.


The Cure – Close to me

This is another classic 80’s tune. The reason it came to my mind is this list of the best jokes from the Edinburgh festival. I particularly liked “I was in a band called The Prevention, because we hoped people would say we were better than the cure.” Funny stuff. Also a good song.
