Blown Way by Marden Hill, 1994. I bought it at Lucky Seven in Stoke Newington, for 2 quid. A great, but not well known acid jazz/downTempo album from the nineties. This was love at first sight for my amigo Miguel (AKA the flavah) , who heard it for the first time in my flat. Now every time he visits wants to spin it at least once.

The Jesus and Mary Chain – Automatic 1989. This is a superb album by the Reid brothers and a drum machine. I have the 2014 half speed mastered reissue which sounds great.

Leonard Cohen – Various Positions, 1984

Leonard Cohen – Various Positions, 1984. I love early Leonard Cohen, but I adore his voice from this album and onwards.
As he says “My voice has gotten very very deep over the years and seems even to be deepening. I thought it was because of 50,000 cigarettes and several swimming pools of whiskey that my voice has gotten low. But I gave up smoking a couple of years ago and it’s still getting deeper…My voice really started to change around 1982. It started to deepen and I started to cop to the fact that it was deepening.” I remember quite vividly “dance to the end of love’ around 1985 when I was 11 years old. I didn’t really fancy the song back then, it was part a compilation album ( “Hits 3” I think) that somebody got me as a present. I use to play “Bring on the dancing horses” by Echo and the Bunnymen, “She sells Sanctuary” by the Cult, “All You Zombies” by the Hooters etc
Every song on that album but “Dance me to the End of love” 😸. Eventually I came across this and I bought it many years after when I was able to appreciate it more, and it stayed with me and it will stay with me for a long time.
