Bob Dylan - Blonde On Blonde
Bob Dylan - Live 1966
Bob Dylan - The Basement Tapes
Bob Dylan - Medicine Sunday (soniclovenoize reconstruction)
Bob Dylan - Songs For Dwarf Music (soniclovenoize reconstruction)
(also realised it's just over 30 years since I saw Dylan live and rejuvenated on the back the 'Oh Mercy' album, which is longer ago now than the 'Judas' incident was then. Dug out the bootleg and great to be reminded of his solo acoustic performance of 'Gates Of Eden'. He was so much younger then, he's older than that now.)

The Beatles - Revolver
The Beatles - A Collection Of Beatles Oldies

Neu! - Neu! 75
Neu! - Neu! 4 (Phallus Dei's resequenced version: https://www.headheritage.co.uk/unsung/review/895/ This really works!)
Neu! - Neu! 86 (new track 'Drive (Grundfunken)' is the most like classic Neu!, making me wonder if it is the same vintage as the other tracks or something Rother worked up specially for this release)

Tim Hardin - Tim Hardin 1
Tim Hardin - Tim Hardin 2
Tim Hardin - Tim Hardin 3: Live In Concert
Tim Hardin - Tim Hardin 4
Tim Hardin - This Is Tim Hardin (prefer this to Tim Hardin 4 - it has a more haunted quality making the standard blues structures sound a lot more appealing)

Vangelis - Reprise 1990-1999
Vangelis - Excerpts From The Catalogue (2CD promo)

Love Life + One - Love Will Make A Better You

Apryl Fool - Apryl Fool

David Bowie - Earthling
David Bowie - Hours
David Bowie - Toy
David Bowie - Heathen
David Bowie - Reality

Julian Cope - Interpreter
Brain Donor - Love Peace & Fuck

Kate Bush - Before The Dawn

Popol Vuh - Affenstunde

Kavus Torabi – Hip To The Jag. First solo album from Knifeworld/Gong/Utopia Strong/Guapo etc etc guy. An intimate psychedelic, even mystical, vibe, intriguing stuff: https://kavustorabi.bandcamp.com/album/hip-to-the-jag

Trees Speak – Ohms. More guys in that John Carpenter/Stranger Things/post-apocalyptic library vein, but this is a worthy addition… https://soundsoftheuniverse.com/sjr/product/ohms

Hawklords – Alive. If you haven’t checked these guys out yet, assuming them to be a second rate HW covers band (as I once assumed), then this new live album is a great introduction

VA – Occasional Rain. Hooray, it’s another Bob Stanley & Pete Wiggs compilation. Basically a follow-up to 2017’s English Weather, so more progressive with a small ‘p’ sounds from the turn of the 70s, including this gem: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKy5evUHRnk

Hawkwind - Roadhawks

Nice to see someone giving Hardin a good spin...as for Dylan, yup, the Oh Mercy tour, sigh - saw seven nights at the Hammy Odeon after being bowled over on night one and finding out spare guest list tickets were being released half an hour before showtime each night. A case of sod the money, boy was the guy on form. Had Jerry Hall sitting next to me one night, another one turned out to be his 50th birthday bash, ended by Ronnie Wood pelting him with a big bunch of gladioli one at a time until he cracked up and walked off..the following night was great until after when I found some c**t had nicked my van. Like you, never seen him since, but that tour def a highpoint so memory bottled.
