Difference in opinion exists in all members, don't worry about it. If we agreed on everything it'd be pretty boring wouldn't it?

If ever I was asked to list down my prized possessions this would be one of them. This Double LP album (Single on CD) will be in the top 10. Acoustic jazz album recorded live (sound & video) on the Renfrew Ferry berthed on the River Clyde Glasgow, Scotland. Ahh... so many fond memories. Cold, windy & cloudy Glasgow.

 

The songs are a mix of the first & 2nd album. Even though the 2nd album did not get as many accolades as the first album (it still reached Gold status), in this (their 3rd & 1st) basic live album all the songs sounded superb. It was simple yet had a immense sense of air. I wish I could listen to this album right now but it's a rare find on CD. If you do, get one for me wink.gif

 

In the second city of the empire...

Mother Glasgow watches all her weans...

Trying hard to watch her little starlings...

uncouciously she clips their little wings."

The self-titled Tracy Chapman album. It was one of the first all-digital recordings and sounds INSANE. Very clean, yet smokey and dark at the same time somehow. One of my all-time favorite albums by far.
