Seatrain - Watch (Warner Brothers K46222) The fourth and final album from Californian roots fusion band Seatrain.

Edgar Broughton Band - Edgar Broughton Band (Harvest SHVL791) I first heard the Warwick-based Edgar Broughton Band at a friend's house when I was about 13.

Bert's seventh album was released in...

Nanci Griffith - The Last of the True Believers (Rounder REU 1013) I think it was around the mid to late 1980s when I started taking notice of country music again. After so many years of rhinestone cowboys, divorces (in irritating upper case and full stops) and Islands in the sodding streams, I...
