Book Musik 048 – Roxy Music’s Avalon (33 1/3) – discussion with author Simon Morrison

Roxy Music’s Avalon (33 1/3) by Simon MorrisonTosh and Kimley are joined by author Simon Morrison to discuss his new book Roxy Music’s Avalon (33 1/3). Mention Avalon to diehard Roxy Music fans and you’ll get a wide spectrum of responses, but few would put it at the top of their list even if they like it. However, Avalon (their last studio album), is the band’s most successful album in terms of sales and Morrison is more than happy to defend its brilliance with its lush production and sensuous vibe.

Book Musik 047 – You Lose Yourself, You Reappear: Bob Dylan and the Voices of a Lifetime – discussion with author Paul Morley

You Lose Yourself, You Reappear: Bob Dylan and the Voices of a Lifetime discussion with author Paul MorleyTosh and Kimley are joined by author Paul Morley to discuss his new book You Lose Yourself, You Reappear: Bob Dylan and the Voices of a Lifetime. Morley explores Dylan’s development as an artist via his numerous “voices” both sonically and metaphorically from his early beginnings in the late 50s/early 60s to his astonishing release last year of Rough and Rowdy Ways. Dylan is notoriously known as someone who is loath to be pinned down and stay in the same place creatively. Those who are willing to go on the ride with him are more than happy, are in fact grateful, for every twist and turn, and every high and low.
