Can I Buy With Confidence?

Postby Bride Of Sea Of Tunes » 20 Nov 2017, 11:24

OK -

it's long ago that I just bought an album without having any idea of what to expect. I know her name and her history. The reviews I just found (Dutch) were very favourable. My local retailer has it now for € 7.99.

One of these occasions where I think: I'll get it, not listen in the store, and see what happens at home.

Of course . I always like to have a physical copy if I like a record. Spotify is your friend when you are unsure.

Apart from Laura Nyro, Sandy has the best female voice ever. For me.

For that price I'd take it home immediately.

It's great. All of Denny's solo albums have good songs but they're ruined by the poor production. This album is mostly demos and live recordings, so it has all of the raw Denny goodness stripped of the naffness. It's amazing from start to finish.
Mick Houghton's biography is a recommended read, too.

:lol:

Got it in my bag. Still sealed. Am going to devote this evening to disk 1, tomorrow 2.

Will tell you about it. It's quite thrilling: not having heard a note of it, and expectation building up (as was once the case with Marquee Moon, Pet Sounds, and The Soft Bulletin. All are deep favourites to this day, so it's looking good.

Oh no! Upon double checking I noticed I've recommended the wrong one.


I'm sorry, SoT, about the money you threw away :oops:

I have the Unicorn one and No More Sad Refrains. Both are lovely, buy it, buy it.

In fact if anyone knows where I could get a poster of the cover of No More Sad Refrains I would be willing to drop some cash. Its a wonderful cover, wonderful picture that I simply must one day find and have framed on my wall. Utterly gorgeous!
