What's New?

Once again, I'm concerned at my recent music buying, and I'm becoming increasingly aware that I'm buying less and less new music.

The last ten albums I bought were:

The Black Keys - Attack & Release
Fleetwood Mac - Then Play On
Ultrasound - Everything Picture
The Highwaymen - The Highwayman Collection
John Mayall & The Blues Breakers - Blues Breakers With Eric Clapton
The Who - Who Are You
The Who - The Who By Numbers
Fairport Convention - Unhalfbricking
Gram Parsons - GP/Grievous Angel
Lee "Scratch" Perry - Soul Fire

Not one of them released this year. Only The Black Keys album was even released this century.

Am I losing my touch or spreading my roots further into classic blues, country, folk and reggae?

Nothing wrong with that - I think that there is a lot of insipid tripe around these days. I haven't bought any CDs for ages. I'm not even sure if I bought one in 2009. I must have, but I'll be damned if I can remember.

The only things I have on the horizon are the new Thomas Truax album when it arrives and there's supposed to be a new Iron Maiden album coming out which simply will be bought. Iron Maiden were the first band I got into which wasn't my dad's vinyl, and as such I reserve the right to always hold them in high regard irrespective of fashion or any other factors :)

A couple of excellent choices in that list btw.

I bought Who Are You - back in 1978...(give or take a year or two!) A classic album.
