J.J. Cale changed my life. Troubadour is a perfect album.

My dad is a big fan of his, so when I was a small kid I kinda grew up with it. It is since a few years that I really started to discover that I really like his music as well.

Absolutely love JJ Cale. I've got all his albums up to 1983, before he made those crappy 90s ones.


He has had some strong ones after though, to Tulsa and back for example is pretty good!

That's true, that album and Roll On are pretty good. I can't get into his stuff 1989 - 1996 though, way too digital and corny.

A good charity shop haul; 3x designer label merino wool jumpers and - best of all - a Harris Tweed jacket all for less than £100.

All great condition and would be approaching £1000 new. I've wanted a proper tweed jacket for years.

I got me a copy of The Pod by Ween (1995 Flying Nun pressing) and the Charley Patton compilation on Yazoo from 1971. Pricey, but worth it.

Resident Evil 7 for the PS4. Bought it to play with a friend, we're only a little bit into the game, but it's pretty good :)

@portiss nice vinyl finds! I recently found an album by folk singer songwriter Vashti Bunyan on record, it’s called heartleap and gives off some Joni Mitchell vibes! It was in oxfam for four quid so a right bargain!
