Guranfoe - Sum of Erda

Guranfoe – Sum of Erda

Published on 15th February 2020 | by Nick Hudson

Nektar – The Other Side

Published on 10th February 2020 | by Graham Thomas

The idea of a new Nektar album in 2020 is not really something I’d have expected. After the sad death in 2016 of Roye Albrighton, founder guitarist and much-loved character, it seemed that the band would... Read More

Alan Emslie – AE 50

Published on 9th February 2020 | by Bob Mulvey

With precision timing, as one might expect from a drummer, Alan Emslie returned in late 2019 with his latest offering. As with other recent albums on the now customary release date of 21st December… I’ll let... Read More

Talinka – Rainbow Over Kolonaki

Published on 7th February 2020 | by Mel Allen
