The music behind the worst album covers ever.





Some of the worst you have never seen. Even I was surprised at how bad some of these record covers are.
What can we do with our ashes when we die? 
I am a vinyl junky, and have released a few in my time. This could well be a final pressing for me in the future. We could pres our remains into vinyl.  
The company And Vinyly is provided the opportunity for vinyl enthusiasts.  They actually will take your ashes and press them into vinyl so you can actually become a record.  They offer a few different packages and, like an album, you get two sides to get your message across, albeit each side is only 12 minutes long.
According to their website, they say, “record a personal message, your last will & testament, your own soundtrack or simply press your ashes in to hear your pops and crackles for the minimum approach”
A basic package starts at a neat £3,000.  You get up to 30 discs, your rest in vinyl album cover and label artwork (including your birth date and date of passing). 
Of course you must supply the music.  
If you don’t want your whole body burned and pressed into vinyl, they accept parts as well, so, a part of you can go into your favorite place, while another part of you will go into vinyl, claro as long as they have been incinerated.  
You can even do this for your pet, that´s right, your beloved animal can be pressed to make a most sentimental record. too!
Follow the link to press your ashes or your pet´s ashes into  vinly.

Jimmy Smith i'm your hoochie coochie man

Jimmy O'Bryant's Washboard Band - Everybody Pile

Wilbur de Paris & his new New Orleans Jazz 1958 Change O' Key Bogie



Change O´Key Boogie!



As the title suggests change of key live here, that is the soloist. There is some fine solo work a bit of an ensemble here and there, swinging all the way.




Wilbur de Paris & his new New Orleans Jazz 1958 That's A Plenty







That´s plenty - the tune gives the album it´s title, is a well known standard or at least it was back in the day. This version features the sparkling trumpet of Doc Cheatham. Doc is up tempo and keeping this standard exciting from some of the more lackadaisical versions you can hear from time to time in other places. Fast and smokey.

Billy Preston - Billy's Bag





This is the one. I believe I already imagined sometime in the long past more than 15 years ago, that some day, I would be able to play this record out and about.



It´s with me here in Madrid, with a stack of Soul, Jazz, Blues, and Swing. Here I come Madrid.




Bob & Early









Yeh, this bad boy just arrived in Madrid with a good handful of other vinyl of mine. Spent last week at home in Manchester, digging through my 3000 vinyl strong collection.  I´ve got this record on 10 inch here, Sue Record. It´s just one of those tracks that kills it. Get into the slide.


Foolish Questions - Billy Murray

Please Don't Bury Me John Prine

Some amazing songs and lyrics from John Prine.



Just trying to have me some fun. Inspired, get on it. 


The Unspeakable Practices The Unspeakable Practices

Neon, is the song you want to hear by The Unspeakable Practices. 
Something going on here, it's a kind of experimentation that will help break and move forward, like it.
