Can't seem to get enough of them at the moment, fabulous music.

Lovely!

I had the 2-disc distillation/best of for years, then a few years ago my local record shop had a secondhand copy of the full version in the 12" box for twelve pounds (it was slightly battered and worn, but the discs are all fine.

I am playing the hell out of that. So much great music!

I like it, at times I prefer his more acoustic gentler side, which is why I find Harvest Moon such a great album.

I haven’t played it for years - I bought it at the time then archived it.

I love both the electric and wooden stuff.

I’ll dig it out and give it another go

It’s been a while

Broad church.


They made many very good/excellent albums but this has always been the stand out for me. As C. might say ‘full of music’ - a delightful album.

Your often used description 'pleasant' is most appropriate for both of these Lord R. Nothing wrong with pleasant but pleasant it is.

Agreed. Pleasant AND decent but not something to get excited about.

Camel definitely 2nd Division. Even their most successful, "Snow Goose", was bland

Spurred on by Matt Wilson's Pretty Things splurge I thought I'd dig a couple out. Parachute is excellent but I'm not one who thinks their earlier albums were anywhere near as good as the Stones' earlier ones.


The Who By Numbers is a greatly underappreciated album in the Who's catalogue I think - over the years I have grown to like this album more and more every time I play it.
