Great list Bob. I have most of those. I would also include Berlin 61 to 89 Wall of Sound, Anthems Electronic 80s, Rough Trade's Country collection, Dark was the Night (Domino), Electri City 1 and 2, Can You Dig It (Soul Jazz Blazploitation tracks), Soul Jazz's Soul of a Nation, Mojo's compilation, Brain Damage, the REverb Conspiracy comps on Fuzz Club and the End of the Road compilations, Glitterhouse is 20, The Wag Club box-set, Tales from the Australian Underground, and Kent Records Take Me to the River. There's more but I'm looking up at my collection.....

New breed of Social Justice Warrior ? The singer is Gareth Liddiard of seminal Australian band, The Drones. He’s no new breed. He’s taking a break with a side project. His vocals are more feral than usual. He wasn’t aiming for gossamer. I don’t particularly like it but it is definitely not dated.

Steve Hackett is still making plenty from Genesis shows off the back of at least five of these tracks. Firth of Fifth especially, with its outstanding guitar solo full of gravitas. A classic indeed, and a brilliantly refreshing review.

I was a bit of a non fan Jeff, but I enjoyed some of this immensely, so I ordered it ! On CD. The additional tracks was something I missed. Marks off for that !

I didn't know this was produced by Four Tet. Interesting choice. I liked her forays into free jazz, no doubt inspired by her uncle, Don Cherry, but as you've said she has many more flags on her mast. Good album.
