Fopp



I will hopefully stick some new music in Dropbox soon from my expedition to Fopp today. I found an interesting sampler of 1970s Nigerian music that I haven't had a chance to listen to yet.

I also bought a live Sandy Denny CD that is actually her last ever performance. Unfortunately a lot of the guitar and backing vocals were added in the studio because the recorded stuff had "problems".

One weird thing, I walked past the Easy Listening section and they had Dory Previn there!

If there is one thing I'd never describe her music as, it would be Easy Listening. Far too uncomfortable and with uneasy themes.

and how many styles of typeface..
cool

my library is doing a fine selection of Nigerian mixes... at the moment I'm working through:
'Lagos Chop Up'
'Lagos All Routes'
'Lagos Shake: A Tony Allen Chop Up'
they sure sounded like they were enjoying themselves.

The Nigeria Disco Funk album is worth getting as well, Carole.

I mentioned the Nigeria 70 and Lagos Jump comps recently, both are awesome. Look forward to some clips from your sampler.

Well, I pkayed it today and yes, it has some good stuff.

Will drop bits into Dropbox definitely.

Incidentally, I followed listening to it up with Isaac Hayes' Hot Buttered Soul and am now listening to War and The World Is A Ghetto

I seriously need very wide flares, platform heels and a 'fro.

Dory Previn, huh? That means I'm going to have to pay more attention to Easy Listening next time I go to Fopp.
