I mean, $10 per CD is practically a bargain.

Yeah! Imagine what the price would be if anyone had ever heard of Al Stewart!

knowing jules IRL, i suspect he's under the median age of this board... but not by tons.  i suspect he was born in the 80's.  year of the cat came out in 1976.  if he didn't grow up around a lot of classic rock/pop i could see him not being aware of who al stewart was.  it's a mild indictment of his late-20th century pop music awareness, but pretty sure he can live with that.

I know enough to know that "Time Passages" is an abomination of a musical composition and really should be forgotten, not celebrated in a $500 box set

This has cut me to the core. All I have left to take solace in is my generation’s music, my millions of dollars and my youth. Let's all go out and buy fur coats!

I may still have the 45 of Year of the Cat somewhere in my house, assuming my wife didn't throw out my record collection. I didn't have Time Passages though.

I know that little about Al, that didn't even know he had anything else people liked

Thanks to an outstanding story in the Guardian, I'm currently diving in deep to a lost musical genre from Barbados called Spouge

Per the article it was created by  Jackie “Manface” Opel from Bardados who travel to Jamaica and preformed with the Skatalites. Bunny Wailer called Opel “the greatest of them all”; Bob Marley cited him as the reason he wanted to sing.

He returned to Barbados and decided it need a sound all it's own and created Spouge.  Described as a "joyfully relentless, funky, syncopated beat that sits in a zone somewhere between vintage soca, inside-out ska and classic blue-collar soul."

My introduction is this awesome mix
BAJAN SPOUGE MUSIC MIX VOL 1 (BARBADOS) - https://youtu.be/1NeDS5G-qA0

This version of The Letter by Clarence Thompson really caught my ear

I would totally buy up a compilation of this stuff.. seems like something Numero Group would do a excellent job with

this spouge stuff is amazing

Wow how can one not one want to get up and move to The Daytons Two's version of this  Righteous Brothers classic

Not hard to see why Richard Stoute had a hit with his version of "Vehicle" by US garage rockers The Ides Of March

This is the infectious stuff - The Checkmates - Spouge Beat
