You find us at that time in the month when things start getting more than a wee bit hectic, deadlines fast approaching as we head into the final week or so of work on the new issue, for which I am reviewing Roy Harper’s Man & Myth, his first album of new material since The Green Man, 13 years ago. There’s also the small matter of next month’s cover story, which I’m also writing, which means it’s all go at the moment.

Meanwhile, as part of the special promotional feature in the current issue that we produced in association with hmv celebrating six decades of music and films, we have reached the 1970s, the era of stadium superstars, progressive rock, glam, punk, new wave and disco, for which I’ve compiled the following playlist.

Have a great week.
