Roy Brooks - Understanding (Reel to Real)
4 hours ago
Back in 1980s, there was a Vancouver power-pop band called Fun With Numbers, who were great live. The leader of Fun With Numbers was Robin Stanley. Like most musicians he eventually settled down with a good job to raise a family. Music is his avocation and not his vocation. Robin Stanley has released three excellent solo albums; Mad Kingdom (2004), Chronic Empire (2007) and Cosmology (2012). Alongside Alejandro Escovedo's Big Station and Marty Stuart's Nashville Volume 1: Tear The Woodpile Down, Robin Stanley Cosmology is one of my favourite albums of 2012 so far
P.S.. Marty has the best hair!
NSDLD volume 38, MediaFire has locked my account. So even though each and everyone of the tracks in this series is a recordings of independent origin (ROIO), people are being denied access to the music. I've made no decision on whether the old volumes should be re-upped.
