This is basically a music blog. I would like to introduce people to some music they may not know about. I spend an obscene amount of time searching for new musical finds.

one of the greatest albums you've never heard of




Back in Denver 1986 there was a show on sunday mornings called Teletunes. They showed alternative videos. One particular morning they showed videos by the Woodentops, Simple Minds and Joan Armatrading.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SjqzzsEYUTY Joan Armitrading video- Kind words and a real good heart. (to bring you back to the moment with me)I liked the video a lot. I had some birthday money and headed to the sound warehouse. I bought the single for The Damned - Eloise and Catching up with Depeche Mode. They didn't have the Joan Armatrading album with Kind words on it but in the cut out (cheap) bin they had an old old Joan album Whatever's for us for us. It was 2 or 3 dollars so I bought it.Well I wore out Eloise and Depeche Mode but couldn't really get into the Joan Album (I was 18).


A couple of years later I was driving to work and KTCL (denver radio station) played a song Fast Cars. I thought WOW Joan has a new album out and I really like that song. I went to Wax Trax record store looking for the new Joan album. The clerk told me fast cars was by Tracy Chapman. I bought the album and loved it but couldn't help thinking how much she sounded like Joan. I pulled out whatevers for us and gave it a listen. I was a little older now and ready for it.

A few years back they released a remastered cd. Man I love this album. When I listen to Elton John, Tori Amos, The Indigo girls and of course Tracy Chapman I hear Joan.

I won't put her whole bio here see link below for all that. Evidently she was running around London performing in Hair the Musical. She met another artsy type woman named Pam Nestor and they decided to write songs together. This woman was a poet and Joan put music to her words.


I'm so glad they didn't have the album I was looking for that day in 86. If they did, I don't think I would have gone back to any of her earlier stuff. I strongly recommend you adding this album to your collection. This and a best of Joan Armitrading should do really well. If you find you really love it, by all means explore more of her large body of work.

all the kings gardens-The guitar on this song is amazing. Hands down my favorite song on the album. And that bass player...MAN!All The Kings Gardens-Joan Armatrading.mp3

Mister Remember Me-Joan Armatrading.mp3 This song breaks my heart

Lonely+Lady+-+Joan+Armatrading.mp3 Early Funk, great use of horns, a little Jethro tull flute thrown in and listen to that bass player working his tushie off.

It was so hard to pick just 3 tracks. This album is uncomplicated, honest and joyful. I really wanted to share the whole thing. Please run out and get it.
