nah it's not. Only Marvelous Dream is on there as a teaser. I think what you have linked me to is your own collection?

yes, it´s there, just follow the link. Or at least I have it there, but I don´t think its available in some countries only. You must have it there, too.

Re: Dr Dee, underappreciated?

Seems to have been forgotten about, and it's not on Spotify which is sad. Dr Dee is simplistic and sounds like what it was meant to sound like 'victorian engish music?' Beautiful vocals from Damon, relaxing tunes. Not over produced like some everday robots or Now Now. This is a true solo record and...

Re: "The End of the F***ing World" - full soundtrack album

Listening to it now (iTunes download). So far, lots of similarities to the first soundtrack. I haven't heard anything that really jumps out like "She Left the Light On" or "Walking All Day", but still working my way through it. Early impressions are it's solid with a lot of variety in style and it ...

Re: "The End of the F***ing World" - full soundtrack album

No matter what you think about the album so far, I strongly recommend to you to give it more listens. It´s definitely a grower. I agree with some of you that there were more instantly catchy songs on 1st series, but then again, this album is getting better with every listen. Also, it is a good invit...

Re: New release: Live at the BBC

I am with you on that too... Nevertheless, wishful rather than rational thinking makes me remember they did see each other for a bit this year (before and during the Circus gig), so it's not entirely impossible they did rehearse a bit more and are prepared for a one-off something. I wouldn't rule o...

Re: Graham in the studio with Duran Duran...

I saw this photo months ago. On the other hand - the older this picture is, the closer we are to the actual release :-) ….is there something we should know....? :) I don´t have any insider info :-) But lets remember this gig, where our beloved band supported... Duran Duran! https://www.youtube.com/...

Re: Blur and David Bowie

Pyongyang is very Bowie-que to my ears, Damon sound eerily like him when he goes "feel like I´m floating" at the begining of second verse. Thought I Was Spaceman comes to mind, too. And from Gorillaz catalogue, imagine DB on vocals for Busted and Blue - the very narrative of this song has strong Maj...

Ashamed to say I haven't really given Graham's solo stuff much time. Hearing how much of an impact Happiness in Magazines has had on you all, I'll definitely give it a good listen in the coming days.
Definitely try some more. The Kiss of Morning is my very favourite.

Re: Happiness in Magazines turns 15

I've always liked Graham's solo work, and I find it very difficult to "rank" his albums. I reckon each of them has its own particularities. Maybe you could group the first four (and still, they're quite different from each other), then you could say Happiness and Love Travels form a pair, then The ...
