Very interesting, txa, thank you. Although a little bit too much guitar-concentrated insome parts, imho.

@Thrasher : The remastered CDs should be very cheap by now. Except the 2-CD first album package (it contains the remastered original plus the 1987 remaster "second version", as I call it.

Just received some CDs (yes, I'm one of those still buying material stuff), three albums from Julie Fowlys, Newton Faulkner and the Nights from the Alhambra by Loreena Mckennitt. I'm currently listening to the later and must say I immensely appreciate it (as I did with each of her albums), especially since it contains a DVD version of the whole concert, that can be seen here :

I've begun collecting really old CD singles by Mr. Phil Collins. I plan to get all of the "… But seriously" era together - and then I'll transport that stuff (most interestingly : non-album tracks) onto an audio cassette.

Ha ha … It is a good album though.

My younger son is into them, has some vinyl as well. Who knew playing Kraftwerk and Tribe Called Quest years ago for them would lead in such strong directions

Excellent! I had seen this earlier and almost posted it, too.

In a somewhat similar vein, I revisitted The Beloved from the 90's recently. This was perfect decompression on the plane returning from Kauai Saturday. warning features nudity…

Sweet Harmony

A little more electronic and hypnotic, less funky, more jazzy (with the sax), early 90's house beat on the forefront of "the dance revolution".

The whole album Inspiration is to me a classic, way ahead of it's time. Tracks with good soulful Hammond organ, guitar, vocals, and strings, too.

The video's OK for broadcast tv, if only barely.

Good call on Beloved. If you're feeling adventuresome, you might try to track down "The Stone" by Babble. It's Tom and Alannah from Thompson Twins doing some more ethereal stuff, with a healthy dose of world beat thrown in.

"Tribe" by Babble

OK, I'll have to dig a little deeper. Let's see…

Yeah, nice, this starts to verge into Curve territory for me, which I was into for a while back then. Of course, Curve is darker, more psychedelic, heavier and thick. Same beat though. Some I like:

Die Like a Dog

Coast is Clear
Superblaster
Ten Little Girls
The Color Hurts

Most of these must be listened to with headphones or audiophile stereo to most appreciate.
