It was also the label which released the debut singles by Aztec Camera, The Go – Betweens, Josef K and, trailblazing the labels tongue-in-cheek motto “The Sound Of Young Scotland”, with four seminal 7′ releases , Orange Juice.

Jeff Buckley “Grace”

Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#281 in the Series) is Jeff Buckley, Grace. Make a list of the best debut albums of all-time and it won’t be very long before you get to Grace. For, quite simply, Jeff Buckley and his band created a beautiful work, rich and varied in scope, tough but also tender. As a performer in his own right, Buckley first came to the attention of the public (and most A&R men) when he took up a weekly residency at Sin-E, a small basement cafe in New York. Appearances there saw him hone his craft to perfection, crafting a rare beauty from his soaring vocal range, dazzling guitar skills and myriad influences, most notably Led...

Welcome to ‘Cool Album of the Day!’

Posted 28 Nov 2010 in

JUST WHAT IS THIS SITE ALL ABOUT? Here’s what we’re doing.  Everyday at noon, I toss out an album, say a few things about. Tell a story connecting to it if I know one. Give you a little history about it etc.  I’m not really doing reviews. Do you need a review of something 30 years old? I think not. Hopefully, I’ll hit on a memory for you. Or possibly enlighten you about something you didn’t know. I’ll usually have some videos of songs from the album. Sometimes live videos, but not always. I also will attach a few bonus videos when I can.  They have something to do with the act featured but often not directly with that...

    “First Man on the Harvest Moon!” – Stephen Dalrymple NBC News were the first to report the death of astronaut Neil Armstrong, which is obviously a huge story, but in the frenzy to get the first full story up on their website they made a mistake in their headline.

Big Star ‘Third/Sister Lovers’

  Today’s Cool Album of the Day (#984 in the Series) Big Star, Third/Sister Lovers This one goes down as one of the great enigma’s of rock music, an album by a band which had pretty much split up by the time it was recorded, which had no title and which didn’t even have a finalized track listing. For years it was, just like The Beach Boys “SMiLE”, more of a rumour, a myth, than an actual record. Thankfully it was eventually released, in an albeit limited capacity, and fans were finally able to hear what all the fuss was about. Was it worth it? Hell yeah. Big time. Big Star were founded in Memphis by  three friends who were deeply...
