Big fan of the Right Place Wrong Time LP. But really like this:

Yeah, I like a lot of his stuff up to about the late 70s, but after that it got a bit ropey for a while, and then after that it all got a bit samey and repetitive.  But those first few albums are great.  Plus my dad was a huge fan of his more bluesy stuff like Such A Night.

Also, whilst I knew he was still alive, I had no idea he was still "only" in his 70s - I thought he was close to 90.

The label he's signed to are going to give his forthcoming album away for charity apparently.

I saw that and thought Sad Eyes was a good hit, back in 1979.  Then I googled to find that was Robert John.

Gris-Gris is an absolutely magical album.
