❉ Liz Buckley on her top five favourite albums of this year. We have music, and dance. But mainly music, as dance needs room and no one can afford to buy a room in 2017.
❉ Let the record show, M’Lud – Roger Taylor was right. Exhibit A: The first 6 Queen albums.
❉ A welcome reissue of Rypdal’s rare 1968 solo album featuring Jan Garbarek.
❉ The once-ubiquitous, post-punk polymath’s solo work, re-evaluated by Tim Worthington.
❉ The sound of an artist rediscovering his voice and how to make music without compromises.
❉ An appreciation of the era-defining soundtrack album for Wim Wenders’ ‘Until the End of the World’, released on this day in 1991.
