Some good stuff buried in this pretty odd bunch. Delighted to pick up a new split from Ben Nash and Cameron Stallones’ great, possibly retired, Magic Lantern. Also, this Jim Sullivan reissue on Light In The Attic is becoming kind of addictive. I was trying to work out who he reminded me of this morning, and can’t quite place him. For the time being, the best I can come up with is maybe a cross between David Ackles and Terry Callier, but the more I think about that, the less accurate it appears.
