                              Personally, I've gone for nostaliga. I came across Mary Hopkin's name somewhere, and it transported me to the late 60s and Those Were The Days. So I went out and found it, and somewhat surprisingly it's stood up very well, despite Paul McCartney's heavy handed production. I also discovered her next album, Earth Song Ocean Song, where she'd ditched Apple Records and gone more folky. Very nice. Also encountered the weirdo concept album "The King of Elfland's Daughter", put together by Steeleye Span's Bob Johnson and Pete Knight. Essentially a fantasy novel/short story set partly to music. You need 1970s acid for this one, but I did enjoy at least one of Mary's songs.

                              Have also found the recently re-released Dr. John plays Mac Rebennack, mainly solo piano (some singing), which is outstanding. Thinking of New Orleans, which is hard hit at the moment.
