Damien Jurado 'Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son'
Sometimes it nearly sounds like Nick Drake, sometimes very spacy.

Those are some great selections, and quite a variety. Vinyl is making a major comeback with predictions of sales this year in the billions!! <ii>

Caravanserai is a great album. I haven't heard it for a while, so I think I will give it a listen. Procol Harum has always been one of my favorite 60s-70s bands. I have had LZII on vinyl for so long, I don't even remember when I bought it. :shock: It's probably warped and full of scratches....

Mike Oldfield - Return To Ommadawn. A brilliant album, and a great return to classic the 70's Oldfield style.

Kid A by Radiohead. An album that I believe represents the most drastic change of direction a band has ever undergone in history.

Craang - To The Estimated Size Of The Universe

Awesome psychedelic rock with some drone and stoner thrown in. $8 for the CD from Bandcamp so no brainer.

Finally got Causa Sui - Euporie Tide on vinyl. It arrived in the mail the same day our record player was sent off for repairs :?

Also got the new Papir album, V. Loving it so far, pretty laid back in parts, but always lovely music.

LSG - Double Vision will be next.

I am glad you like it. I am still loving it. To me it gets better and better with repeated listens. Oldfield is on top form with this great album. Classic Oldfield.

Slightly OFF-TOPIC, not a recent purchase, but I've just listened to a fantastic 21m12s live version of 2112 as recorded at Molson Amphitheatre, Toronto on 30 June 1997

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TbB67DS ... tu.be&t=92

Now it's time to listen to the full album
