Mike Osborne: Force Of Nature - Part 2-2

Read "Mike Osborne: Force Of Nature - Part 2-2" reviewed by Barry Witherden

Part 1 | Part 2

The passion and conviction of Osborne's playing was so intense that it almost always came across undiminished on recordings, whether they originated in a pub, club or concert-hall gig, or in a studio as part of a formal session. Some of his most exciting work was captured in front ...

Julie Tippetts: Didn't You Used To Be Julie Driscoll?

Read "Julie Tippetts: Didn't You Used To Be Julie Driscoll?" reviewed by Duncan Heining

The respect in which Julie Tippetts is held by her fellow musicians and fans is truly heartening--and truly deserved.

Soft Heap: Soft Heap

Read "Soft Heap" reviewed by Nic Jones

None of the four gentlemen pictured standing on a London street in the booklet for this one are with us anymore, but their brand of music is a perfect antidote to somber reflection. Recorded in 1978 by a quartet of stalwarts from the likes of Soft Machine, Hatfield And The North and Gilgamesh, the music is ...

Command All Stars: Curiosities 1972

Read "Curiosities 1972" reviewed by Nic Jones
