What we're listening to: Ten Years After 'Undead'
Often, often asked, who is the great guitarist of all time? There's a lot of contenders and Rory Gallagher, Hendrix, Stevie Ray, Glen Campbell, Jimmy Page, Carlos Santana, Zappa, spring to mind (Clapton doesn't by the way) but in the list you simply have to...

What we're listening to: The Beat 'I just can't stop it'
It was all part of that Two-Tone/Ska movement that had its roots in Reggae (1950's Jamaica) but with urban decay and dance. The Specials, The Selecter, Madness (in a way) and The Beat .  Largely it was about unemployment and people looking to music with a d...

What we're listening to" George Thorogood + The Destroyers '2120 South Michigan'
You know when it says 'George Thorogood ' it's authentic. The real deal.  Nevermind the best Band name ever in, 'The Destroyers' (which started as 'The Delaware Destroyers' and got shortened). In this Album too, probably one of the best cover designs ever ....

What we're listening to: Tom Waits 'Frank's Wild Years'
Whilst everyone seems to have 'Closing Time' from 73 and 'Swordfishtrombones' from 83, this is a little gem you might not have come across. And there's a reason for that - it's one for the fans because it's hardcore Tom Waits. 'Frank's Wild Years' from 1987...

What we're listening to: Glen Campbell 'Rhinestone Cowboy'
Not to recognise the passing of Glen Campbell would be a disgrace and indeed, of course, his Albums have got a sales spike following his death.  What we noted last week, was that the great Dwight Yoakam highlighted this 1967 record as his key moment - the m...

Yeah we know, but the weekend that's in it. It's not exactly Carlos Santana or The Dan but as they go, this is catchy in a jingle way. And actually, we all liked it here in Streamabout.  Big shout out to our man Darragh McCarthy filming McGregor's fight for...

What we're listening to: Rory Gallagher 'Live in europe'
There's a possibility you have never heard of this or indeed, him, but he's someone who a lot of guitarists looked up to - Stevie Ray for one, no less. He was an Irish blues guitarist (Donegal born but considered more Cork) and this is recordings from his E...

What we're listening to: Michael Jackson 'Thriller'
Perhaps a little obvious, or then, why haven't we mentioned it before? Because, perhaps, it was a little obvious...... But we put it on during the week and were reminded just how good it is.  His 6th Album from 1982 (yep over 30 years ago) and the follow up...

What we're listening to. Dimitri from Paris/Peckham 'Disco Forever'
The Sound of Summer and nobody does it better than Dimitri from Paris (or DJ Dimitri ). But he's not from Paris, he's from Peckham! - London (as in, 'Only fools and Horses' Rodney). Mind you, Turkish and Greek parents but did grow up in Paris. Still.  Very ...

What we're listening to: John Martyn 'Grace & Danger'
1980 it was (but get the 2007 De Luxe version) and whilst John was divorcing his wife, Beverley. You can hear the pain on the record - 'Some people are crazy', 'Baby please come home', 'Our love' and the iconicly excellent 'Sweet Little Mystery' .  He had d...
