Sunday Morning Coming Down

Just as the song on last night’s Late Night Stargazing post caught me by surprise, so today’s song did something similar.

But this time, not because I couldn’t believe I’d not really paid it any attention before, rather because it’s on album I have, but which I’ve never properly listened to.

I’ll often get a copy of an album – usually from Exystence (there’s a permanent link in the side-bar) – upload it on to my iPod with the intention of listening to it sometime, and, if I like it, buying me a copy to own all for myself.

The problem is, good intentions fall by the wayside when you end up downloading loads of stuff, which you never quite get round to listening to, but which pops up every now and then when you have your iPod on shuffle mode, as I almost always do.

Which leads me to one such album, which I downloaded following a suggestion by Jules of Music from Magazines a loooooooonnnnnnnnnnggggggg time ago on The Chain #38 (you’ll forgive me, I hope, for not re-uploading all of the links on that particular post. If you’d like me to re-up anything there, or on any of my posts, just send me a message via the Comments section on the post in question and I’ll be happy to oblige).

(Jules – been a long time since you posted anything, or since I heard from you. Hope all is well mate.)

This is pretty bloody great:

  1. I have quite a number of Bonnie Prince Billy albums, that I don’t listen to often enough, scattered around this house in various physical and digital states. I think of ‘Singer’s Grave A Sea Of Tongues’ as being a recent LP, but meagre research tells me that it’s already five years old – blimey. ‘Quail and Dumplings’ is a real stand out tune from the album.

  2. I was curious about the link you provided above for Exy, but when I was simply navigating around the site, my computer went berserk and jumped to five other pages of its own volition. Most legit ‘sampling’ sites seem to use zippyshare. You haven’t had any problems yourself?

  3. Hi Jez
    Sorry about not responding earlier
    Crap few months
    Shit work stuff, sciatica and Dad dying didn’t help much
    But your post made my day

    Love Jules
