Chemins De Terre - Alan Stivell

Guest post by Pastaman Vibration (Yeah!):

Track for track his best and most diverse album, head and shoulders above most folk-rock schlock from the early 70s. Bombardes, bagpipes and near metal riffing, as well as Stivell's usual spiritually uplifting harp-centred celtic roots music. Unfortunately, I lost my cherished vinyl copy when flooded a few years back...

Y brawd adds:

Gyda un cân mewn Cymraeg.

Oddi wrth y brawd

Bah. More esoteria. All well and good in it's place I suppose. Gavin Bryars certainly had his fair share of spins after being posted (to the point that WC started feeling like Leonardo DiCaprio). However, what happened to Flower Travellin' Band, Samsara BE and the like? Come on. Turn it up again and let's rawk whilst there's still time

Hmmmm, on second thoughts, got any Motorhead, butt?
