Shelagh McDonald - Peacock Lady I just jumped on the reissue caravan for this absolutely amazing record from the final point of the great disappeared female folk singer triangle (Vashti and Anne Briggs being the other two points of wonder). My copy is a little like myself...feeling the years so hearing this was coming was a cause for celebration.

Shelagh McDonald - Ophelia's Song

Shelagh McDonald - Let No Man Steal Your Thyme

IMO she stands toe to toe or even toe over toe with Fairport and Fotheringay and I'd guess that fans of this pair and even Joni would love this album. Ive chosen more chamber folk tracks but there's some more classic folk rock on it too if you listen to the whole thing.

Experience: I disappeared for 30 years]A wee background article on her.

Cold Beat - Prism

Cold Beat- Flat Earth elpee ain't out but REALLY looking forward to it and these two come with the preorder

The Imbeciles - Medicine (Legowelt remix) not really a patch on their previous single or the mighty Marina Abramovic sampling Broken English CLub remix but the Legowelt remix is great with it's GangoffourcabaretvoltairePiL tip.

I like the original of D.I.E too, it's kinda Sonic Pixies in some ways

Elisa Waut - Being Strong best known for the wave masterclass of Russia but the host album is wonderful and in possession of loping noir cool and in many ways more like a Flemish early Pink Industry (often with very Almond vocal phrasing) that yer usual lowland wave a la Nine Circles or whatever.

Elisa Waut - Waiting :-*

Elisa Waut - Summary of All My Dreams arguably the highlight of a very strong elpee...Russia included

D
I like that old time rock 'n' roll, don't try to take me to a disco.

^ I just heard about Shelagh McD a few years back via Iain Anderson's article in Folk Roots, I think. Immersed myself in her oeuvre for a few days then moved onto whatever enthusiasm came next. What a life she's led, though; riches to rags is often more poignant than the reverse trajectory. Might have to track down the reissue(s).
