Dirk Hamilton - You can sing on the left or bark on the right

I've been listening to this on LastFM tonight. I haved loved this album since I first heard it more than 25 years ago. Among the thousands and thousands albums I have heard from the 60s and the 70s, this rates very very very high. It touches me as much, every time I listen. I hadn't heard it for too long because my copy is on vinyl and it's been a time since my turntable has spun. If you are reading this, please make sure you hear Dirk Hamilton's 'You can sing on the left or bark on the right'

Grin - My favourite tracks

I've been a huge fan of Grin, since first hearing their music 30 years ago. Today I made a tracklist for my ideal compilation from their four albums.

Take you to the movies tonight
White Lies
Just to have you
Sad letter
Ain't love nice
Everybody's Missin' the Sun
Heart on fire
Hi, Hello, Home
If I were a song
Lost a number
Love again
Love or else
Moon Tears
Open wide
Rusty gun
Pioneer Mary
See what love can do
True thrill
We all sung together
Like rain
What about me
End unkind
