I've got one CD (so far, haven't opened all presents yet).

Donald Byrd & 125th. Street NYC "Love Has Come Around: The Elektra Records Anthology 1978-1982"



Some I have only on vinyl and several not at all...

I wonder what else is coming my way?

Philly dance/funksters the People's Choice "Any Way You Wanna: Anthology 1971 -1981":



B.T. Express "Give Up The Funk 1974-1982":



I was intrigued by "Lotus Disco":

Two albums - Wolf of the Cosmos by Bonnie Prince Billy and Solid Air by John Martyn - the half speed remaster version

And lots and lots of shaving type stuff!



Cool

I have the "Solid Air" LP (from not much after its release), although I don't recall any tune from it.

What does "the half speed remaster version" do for it, sound-wise?

I told my wife that I didn't need any more shaving type stuff, nevertheless I still got a Nivea set (which she apologised for).

Haven't played the John Martyn yet, but there's this from the Abbey Road website re half speed remastering (if I can make the URL thing work...)

I finally was lucky enough to get from Santa a nice 2nd hand copy of Children of Jah - The Chantells & Friends 1977 - 1979 (BAFCD 028).

Been after that for ages. 15 according to the accidentally left invoice. Santa getting senile, innit?

Top tracks?:

Jah Jah New Garden - Lopez Walker
Cool Rastaman Cool - Steve Boswell & Jah 'Ras' Berry
Natty Supper - The Chantells

This CD goes real well with the We Are Getting Bad CD on Motion, as anyone who has both would tell you. I got that not so long ago and can thoroughly recommend them together. Great sound.

Happy Holidays.
