    That's it! It is not expanded at all. It has the same track listing, same track order of the album on Spotify. It is a double album, with three songs per side, but there is nothing on the second side of the second album except for a big Sly & the Family Stone logo.

    Years ago I acquired a bunch of low-res albums through eMusic subscription, and have been systematically trying to replace these with CD-quality files. Libraries are wonderful.

    This results in some listening to music I'd not heard for a while, with various revelations, ranging from "what on earth was I thinking" to "this is really great". In the latter category are the Daniel Lanois recordings I got through eMusic. While I love his work with other artists, as a producer and occasional instrumentalist (e.g. U2, Dylan, Emmylou Harris), and especially like his production of Willie Nelson's Teatro, I've not been that familiar with his own recordings.

    Shine does not by any stretch resemble music recorded by an ensemble in a studio, semi-live. It's a full-fledged studio album with many instrumental components recorded in a multi-track universe, performed by the producer, Lanois. Normally I don't care for this style of music production, but genius will out. It's a beautiful and atmospheric album, a great recording.

    Ron, Good call on Shine. Haven't listened to it for years.

    Just following it by the disturbingly covered For the Beauty of Wynona -

    Sunn O))) - Life Metal. This is the Record Store Day pressing in orange vinyl - and a nice pressing indeed. Though I suspect my neighbours wouldn't enjoy it being played at an appropriate volume! The sleeve has an obi-strip that proudly proclaims it is an AAA recording - recorded and mixed on analogue tape, vinyl mastered and cut from magnetic tape. So what did I do? Ripped it to flac for portability!

    I like this one. To have an obi-strip is also a great bonus indeed

    Now I've played it a few times on Spotify now, I reckon this is a pretty good LP!

    RIP Leon Redbone, died May 30.

    Double Time (1977) is his second album, the first one that I owned, and the one that I have the most nostalgic investment in. But his live albums, especially those recorded in Europe, most of them much later, are especially wonderful.

    Harvest Moon, from Double Time: https://youtu.be/u4j7cAV9TNI

    I might add that there is a whole Leon Redbone channel on YouTube.

    I've been a fan since the 70s, although I never managed to see him live. I've monitored the amusing rumors about this reclusive and mysterious man, among them that he was the alter ego of Frank Zappa, who didn't really die in 1993.

    Redbone made great music in a very distinctive archaic style. I was really sad to see that he'd gone.

    I bought this record while I was in the army, a long time ago.
    Still is a great album. And enjoying to re-discover my "forgotten" records.
