OK a quick one from me which demands more attention that I'm gonna give it mainly cos we're well short of time today. It's a rather special looking 4LP box on Honest Jon's called Open Strings which features 2 LP's of 78's from the MIddle East circa the 20's (we're talking Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Turkey) and 2 LP's of more contemporary folks who are clearly inspired by such greatness. Thems being the likes of Richard Bishop (no longer calling him a sir as I don't believe the queen has chinned him with her sword), MV/EE, Ricky Tomlinson, Steffen Basho Junghans, Six Organs of Admitance, Micah Blue Smaldone, Michael Flower, Charlie Parr... the list goes on. To be honest it looks like the most exiciting thing I've seen in my life. I love old middle easten music and so far what I've heard sound great. I've not had chance to hear the 'compemporary ' albums yet but I will do tonight all being well. Exciting!! Fans of Sublime Frequencies, Alan Lomax etc take note.
