The Ocean Blue- Kings and Queens/Knaves and Thieves
"Paraguay, My Love"
Music in the jangle/Dream Pop genre. Thirty years ago, I obsessively listened to the band's self-titled debut album, and have followed their work ever since. "Kings and Queens/Knaves and Thieves" is imo their best work since the first one, but all of their albums have been superb.
"Kings and Queens" (the video is an homage to The Seventh Seal.)
I treated myself to Rick Wakeman’s White Rock II this week, having had White Rock on LP and then on a CD of uncertain provenance, and being very, very fond of it for decades. I was a little disappointed; it doesn’t have a quarter of the character of the 1976 version and whilst it’s a pleasant listen it isn’t much more than that. Rick has done far better stuff.
