A most disgusting song - Rodriguez #ChristmasGifts

Uf, 2015 ja! En fi, a veure si puc tornar a usar el blog una mica aquests dies. Ara tots estem treballant i nadal ja és historia, però com que vam rebre CDs, DVDs, i llibres relacionats amb la música a nadal, pos, aprofitarem per repassar alguna. CDs: Coming from reality, del Rodriguez; Anthology, Kirsty MacColl, Paris, Zaz; Ghost, Kate Rusby; two Christmas albums, Kate Rusby; 50 words for snow, Kate Bush; Producto Interior Bruto, Juan Colomo. DVDs: Northern Soul, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Enemy Within (sobre la vaga de miners), i un documental sobre el grup Pulp. Llibres: Victus (en anglès), els biografies de Eva Cassidy i Kate Bush.
Ja fa temps que vaig escriure una entrada sobre Rodriguez i la pel·licula Searching for Sugarman. M'agrada molt el seu primer disc i per aixo vaig demanar la segona per nadal. Aqui en teniu un tast.

Wow, a new year already... and 'nowt said on t'old blog! Let's see if I can shake off the lethargy and find a bit of time to get this up and running again. So, Christmas came and went and as usual I got loads of socks, but also loads of CDs, and books and DVDs with a music theme. Here goes:
CDs: Coming from reality, by Rodriguez; Anthology, Kirsty MacColl; Paris, Zaz; Ghost, Kate Rusby; two Christmas albums, Kate Rusby; 50 words for snow, Kate Bush; Producto Interior Bruto, Juan Colomo. 
DVDs: Northern Soul, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Enemy Within (about the miners' strike), and a documentary about the pop group Pulp. Bookwise I got a novel based on the fall of Barcelona in the 1714 War of Succession, and biographies of two of my favourite singers: Eva Cassidy and Kate Bush.
So, here's a bit of Rodriguez.

  1. I absolutely love Rodriguez and have done since I was 18. Timeless music. So good to see his revival.

    1. Yes, it's great music. I didn't "discover" him until the recent film but am now making up for lost time. Already got our kids singing out loud "I wonder" all day long!
      And Rodriguez seems to have taken it all in his stride judging by the film - how many people would be so calm on finding out they are unknown at home, yet superstars on the other side of the globe?!
      Best wishes Carol!! (how's your blogging going?)
