The Absolutely Essential – George Formby
George Formby’s song ‘With my little stick of Blackpool rock’ was once considered Britain’s most dangerous song. In the 1930s his saucy innuendo was considered too much for the BBC radio, but he entertained many with his humour and ukulele skills.
Perdida – Stone Temple Pilots
This latest acoustic release is more soulful than their self-titled last album. With their new lead vocalist, in this album they have moved away from the heavy hitting Grunge sound towards more haunting melancholy tracks.
Thanks for the Dance – Leonard Cohen
Leonard Cohen’s fifteenth and final album, put together by his son. This album has plenty of his trademark poetic and reflective lyrics, deadpan humour and depth of feeling.
Out of My Province – Nadia Reid
New album by New Zealand’s folk singer Nadia Reid. Full of her trademark soft vocals with reflective and melancholy lyrics.
Magic – Turn up the feel good – Various
Coming into winter and (hopefully) out of lockdown you will need no excuses to turn up the volume and dance/sing along to these artists from the past. With music from artists such as ABBA, Elvis Presley and The Everly Brothers you can lose yourself for just a while in feel good music.
