What album are you listening tonight?
Not exactly what album are you listening to tonight, but more accurately what I watched on the telly last night. A David Bowie documentary shown on the BBC, and also available on BBC iPlayer for the next four weeks. This may or may not be your thing, but all I can say is that I thoroughly enjoyed it, superb stuff!

- The Great Unknown by Eric Gillette ( if you're into prog rock...). Young guy, very talented...
Thomas Lang is on the drums, bass and keys are Hakens. Great production, beautiful vocals, and an 18 minutes epic song to remember.

- Zeit by Tangerine Dream : 1972 !

T-Rex Electric Warrior.  16/44.1 CD rip.  It would appear that there are many versions of this album now, but this one happens to be a 2001 'Remastered' version that features a number of 'bonus' tracks.  I tend to find that bonus tracks are little more than a bit of an annoyance, but these tracks are designated as 'work in progress', which pretty much sums up what they are.  However, in this case I really enjoyed the bonus 'work in progress' tracks.  The mix is off and they are very under-produced, but they are a great listen for that very reason.  Much like having a time machine, they give you that 'in the studio' feeling (if there is such a feeling?), they actually sound excellent and give a small insight in how the tracks would have ultimately been put together.  All good fun.

The 'Last Supper' film was released as an add-on to the last five years documentary too. It's only about 16 minutes long but looks interesting (I haven't watched it yet).

Plus a new video for the song 'No Plan', off the Lazarus soundtrack.

Thanks to the good people posting on this thread, I've been listening tonight to :
- Sorceress by Opeth : and it's a nice f***g "prog boogie" ! It could be interesting though to read some comments by Steven Wilson about the choices he made for the production pf thos album.

- Morph The Cat by Donald Fagen which had been going unnoticed to me until it was mentioned here : the follow-up to The Nightfly I was waiting for.

Finally a personal pick : We Insist, The Freedom Suite by Max Roach (it's definitely not easy listening music) which is to political consciousness what A Love Supreme by Coltrane is to spirituality.

Guitar-based jazz, bit of blues, quite funky in places.  And power tools. Nice...
