Tracks Added – June 2014

Screenshot_02_07_2014_16_50

A more manageable list this month after the bumper lot in May.

This months additions are:

  • Steve Hackett – Genesis Revisited – Live at the Royal Albert Hall
  • Laura Mvula – Live with Metropole Orkest (SoS)
  • LSO – Vaughan Williams – Symphony No. 4 (SoS)
  • OKGO – Upside Out
  • Foxes – Amazon Artist Lounge Live
  • Various – Best of the 60’s

The gem of this months additions has got to be the Steve Hackett release covering the gig he did at the Royal Albert hall late last year and which I was at. This is a two CD/one DVD set that showcases Genesis tracks from the period when Hackett was there, so in my opinion, the classic era. It includes Supper’s Ready in all it’s 26 minutes and 15 seconds glory!

There was also another release from OK GO this time featuring four tracks from their forthcoming release which you can (still) support at Pledge Music.

That’s it for this month.

Those above marked (SoS) are from a subscription service called Society of Sound which is curated by Real World Records, Peter Gabriel and the LSO. This provides members with two downloads a month of which you get no choice. This means that some months you get something that you really love and other months not so.
