Splendid start to the day with the arrival of Boz Scaggs’ cover of “On The Beach”, complete with Jim Keltner on drums. There’s a lot else besides we’ve enjoyed this week in the office – The Other Years, Szun Waves and Thousand Foot Whale Claw. A couple of other things on the horizon I can’t quite share yet, but suffice to say there’s some excellent new music to come in the next few months.
Before you pile in, just a polite nudge that our latest issue is on sale. You can read all about it here.
