Yep, its good isn’t it.
Is that the live recording album you played at Owster's that had a version of 'Use Me' on it?

Yes.

Just watched Katie Puckrick, on BBC4 do two excellent programmes exploring the Yacht Rock genre, which of course didn’t exist until some guys coined the phrase around 2005 and started collating together all the West Coast smooth AOR sounds from around 1975-1985.
Great stuff from Steely Dan, The Eagles, America, Bread, The Doobie Brothers, Robbie Dupree, Kenny Loggins, Hall & Oates, Christopher Cross et al.
Completely uncool, but at my age I couldn’t care less.

“Him, him, him,
What’s she gonna do about him,
She’s gonna have to do without him,
Or do without me, me, me,
No-one gets to get it for free,
It’s me or it’s him.” (Rupert Holmes)

Forgot what a good record that was.
With “Him” Rupert Holmes just about makes up for his monumentally awful “Pina Colada Song” :shock:

Ignoring the fact that Steely Dan were about as much a New York band as you could get. :-)

Didier Malherbe & Eric Löhrer - “Nuit D’Ombrelle”

Didier’s funny pipe thing and Löhrer’s acoustic guitar are the only instrumentation, as they wander through a nice selection of jazz standards.

Relax man. :flower:

The Delfonics eponymous debut album, from 1969, including “Didn’t I Blow Your Mind This Time” and “When You Get Right Down To It”

This was arguably the first tentative emergence of the “Philadelphia sound”, with close harmonies, electric sitar, strings, brass and producer Thom Bell at the controls.

Decried by the black music press at the time as “aural wallpaper” in comparison to the tough, political funk of Sly & The Family Stone et al, it was not until three years later that the Philly sound began to gain traction on both sides of the pond and the rest, as they say is history. “Didn’t I Blow Your Mind This Time” shot into the pop charts in 1975, six years after it was first released.

Jeez, this original LP I have on the Bell label, is now 50 years old. Who knows where the time goes?

Caught the end of Michael kiwanuka's set at glasto last night, went back and watched it through today and have bought both his albums off the back of it.
