Elton John - The Diving Board

streaming free on Amazon until Sep 24, the date of its release.

So far I am impressed, it sounds like his best album in a long time.

Paul Kelly - Songs From the South vols 1 & 2

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Paul Kelly is probably the only Australian performer worthy of sharing a stage with Bob Lind. Actually I think a concert featuring both of them could work quite well. Maybe Bob should mention it next time he runs into Paul at S x SW.

Bought heaps of new CDs lately - I need to slow down a little.

I have started to acquire parts of Jimmy Webb's back catalogue, some of which I have on vinyl but nothing to play it on, some of it which for some reason I never picked up on at the time of release. I have got, and have been listening a lot to, his first two (authorised) albums, "Words and Music" and "Letters". Both have some astonishingly good songs,though neither album is flawless.

This is one of the highlights from the first album: "Careless Weed"

Bought two more Jimmy Webb albums: "Land's End" and "El Mirage", which will probably complete my Webb collection.

I still think Land's End is his best album, but El Mirage has The Highwayman and is essential for that song alone.

Also been listening to Brian Wilson - Imagination. Probably his best solo release, if you don't count "Brian Wilson Presents SMiLE". One of the best songs on the album is "Lay Down Burden"; I found this Youtube clip of a live performance, preceded by a brief interview: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m_cdDzr48JE

Hey, has anyone heard Nick Lowe's Christmas album? Has a Richard Hawley-ish vibe.
