27 key records played in the Uncut office this week

Few things to highlight this week, not least a mighty Neil Young live set in which he dusts down “Alabama” for the first time (I’m reliably informed; thanks, Mark) in over 40 years. Please have a listen, too, to the Grand Rapids jam, Patrick Higgins, Nadia Reid and Lubomyr Melnyk. Also, I have nothing whatsoever of interest to say about the Ryan Adams album.
