Music bought in 2017

This year I kept a log of all the music that I bought during the year. Initially I was recording how much it cost too, but that got a bit worrying so I decided to ignore that bit.

In 2017 I bought over 200 albums, mostly on CD format (some downloads). If that seems a lot, (if…ha!), Many of them were charity shop or Ebay bargains (but some weren’t.

A few of my Twitter friends have put out lists of their top albums of 2017, trouble is most of my purchases are not new music, I have been diligently plugging gaps in the classic Prog Rock collection, which now looks a lot healthier (and nerdier).

I dod get a handful of new albums too, so here is a selection of some of my favourites from 2017, some new, some not so new.

Update On Larry Miller’s Progress And Fundraiser

Posting this Larry Miller newsletter here on my blog for your information and for those of you who might want to support Larry in any way.

larryLarry Is Improving After Suffering A Stroke

Please accept our apologies for not updating you sooner on Larry Miller’s situation.

After more than three months, Larry is now out of hospital and progressing. He is some way from coming back to the stage but he aims to make a return by summer 2016.  It is very difficult to predict the time scale of recovery from a stroke and to what extent anyone does recover, each case is different.  Larry’s progress has  taken time and this was to be expected. There has not been a lot to say except Larry’s been improving. He has now begun to pick up the guitar and although he is finding it a little difficult coordinating his right hand with the left, this will improve in time. He has the determination to be back and has been encouraged by so many good wishes via email and social media and by the amount of post he has received including presents. Larry  wants to thank everyone for their kindness.

Larry Miller Fundraiser

Friday 15th January 2015

at The Stables, Wavendon, near Milton Keynes

The majority of Larry’s income comes from playing live gigs and to help out Larry financially, we have organised a fundraising gig at The Stables near Milton Keynes in Buckinghamshire on Friday 15th January 2016 featuring Larry’s band plus special guest which include ex Whitesnake guitarist Bernie Marsden, Stray’s Del Bromham and Oli Brown. They will be playing songs from three guitarists that influenced Larry i.e Rory Gallagher, Jimi Hendrix and Gary Moore. Many of you have already got tickets but if you want to go and support Larry, hurry as there are now less than 100 tickets available out of originally 400. To buy tickets call as soon as you can the box office: 01908 280800  or online: http://www.stables.org/Whats_on/Event/Larry_Miller_20160115

If you can’t go to the gig, you can still help Larry by purchasing Larry’s CDs and T Shirts. There maybe some of Larry’s CDs you haven’t got or you may want to buy for friends and family for Christmas.

 

We have been inundated with T Shirt orders and unfortunately some sizes are out of stock. However, we are ordering more this week. So if you want one or any CDs, go to: http://www.larrymiller.co.uk/shop.htm  

Please accept our apologies for those still waiting for their T Shirt, but they will be dispatched as soon as we have new stock.

Please send any messages to Larry via email info@rockingtheblues.com or via Facebook. We will ensure they are communicated to Larry appropriately.
