Tonto's Expanding Headband - Tonto Rides Again (finally found a copy of this at a semi-reasonable price; listening to it made me think of our dearly departed friend, Jim B.)
Bill Nelson - Theatre of Falling Leaves (haven't picked up one of his releases in a while; nice that he's still plugging away; haven't heard it yet; his on-line diary makes for fascinating reading)

Agreed - Taksu is probably Loren's best solo disc, although the work on those early cassettes (reissue! reissue! :) ) comes close...

Michael William Gilbert Moving Pictures

Back in the '80s, I had the cheek to complain to Gilbert that he was using an extended sample of Popol Vuh's Aguirre (one of my favorite PV releases) without any attribution.  He claimed that he received the tape from someone else, and had no idea who it was.  It wasn't a bad release, as I remember, though I eventually sold it.

Nice to see people here like Opeth. Although I enjoy their earlier stuff (Orchid and Morningrise) much more than their later releases

I have a couple of Opeth CDs, pretty good! But I can't say I listen alot to them these days, or any metal for that matter.

Yesterday:
Brian Eno-Small Craft on a Milk Sea.  I knew it would be disappointing but bought it anyway.  I could do without the noisy techno-freakout pieces, but there are some nice tracks here.  Still, the Eno of 2010 is quite a different beast to his classic period.

Today:
Terje Rypdal-Chaser, To Be Continued, Eos.  Incredible guitarist, great label (ECM).

"Half-Gifts": Tribute to Cocteau Twins-this was worth $4.99 for the several excellent tracks, although with most tribute albums by unknown bands there are always some pretty cheesy cover versions that sound like elevator muzak interpretations.  But overall this one was quite tasty.  I also liked the Dead Can Dance tribute on Projekt, with mostly very good cover versions.

AC/DC-Volts

That Celer is excellent, as is pretty much anything they do/have done. Ditto that Weber box - absolutely classic ECM material, some of which has not been previously released on disc. I do have some problems with the packaging, as ECM has chosen to keep with its love of black & white imagery, and didn't reproduce the original LP/release sleeves from those Webers. Still, a good set to own.

Some of me own recent purchases, en route or acquired via retail:

Llunstorcarnay (Seren Ffordd and Gliese 614) 'Lament of a Forgotten God'
Mathias Grassow 'Highlights 1'
Mathias Grassow 'Highlights 2'
Mathias Grassow 'Highlights 3' 
Peter Challoner - first five releases, via Ambientlive.com
Gene Newton 'Eternity'
Capricornus 'Halation'
Deborah Martin/Mark Rownd 'Convergence'
Maxmillion Dunbar 'Cool Water'
Christopher Rau 'Asper Clouds'
Spiritchaser '1440'
Zero Degree 'Probe'
Zero Degree 'Zero Degree' (Box)
Scott Fitzgerald 'Northern Lights'
Jon Appleton 'Music for Synclavier and Other Digital Systems'
Namlook/Montana 'Labyrinth'
SNFKN 'Sea Bed'
John Ellis 'Our Internal Monologue' & 'Das Geheimnis Des Golem'


About to go into Manhattan tonight to also buy the new Supersilent, '10' (Rune Grammofon), compilation on Funf Records, new John Foxx, Traversable Wormholes, and whatever else comes up... :)

New "ambient" John Foxx, or new "really loves J.G. Ballard and Gary Numan" John Foxx?

Which "new" John Foxx CD are you referring to?  Think the latest is "Quiet Man," but I read it's spoken word with some background music...

It's called "D.N.A." - info here:

http://www.amazon.com/D-N-John-Foxx/dp/B003YBW75I/ref=sr_1_5?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1289426982&sr=1-5

Still haven't bought it yet, actually; Other Music was sold out, and it's still kinda pricey so it's on the 'wait' list.
