Henry McCullough / Ballywonderland (vinyl LP)

Ballywonderland is an album of songs from former Wings guitarist Henry McCullough (he played the solo on ‘My Love’). The album is issued on vinyl this week (the CD release was back in August) and features an interpretation of ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’ (listen here) and a poignant ‘Live Long Rock & Roll’ (watch this video) which features an all-star band of musicians including Gary Brooker, Nick Mason, Paul McCartney, Chris and Paul Carrack (thought to have been recorded in around 2014 – two years before McCullough’s death).

Various Artists / The #1 New Wave Album (3CD)

£8 for this three-CD set, which brings together 60 classic songs “from the edges of the 70s and 80s” isn’t too bad. Decent selection, even if the artwork is absolutely hideous. One for the car (assuming yours still has a CD player in it!).

    # 1 New Wave actually has a great tracklisting. I wonder if it is the original length singles? I remember I bought a Ministry Of Sounds Electro compilation and most of the songs were edited and missing in some cases a minute of the end of the song. I can’t play it as I want to hear the songs as I know and love them.
    Happy Christmas Paul and to all of the people who have contributed to the site over the past year. I visit SDE most days and it is still one of the very best websites out there, informative and friendly and always something interesting to read.

      Zoom (as well as being cheaper) has the track listing and track lengths for the #1 New Wave CDs if you want to check.

    • Vince says:

      With regards to the #1 new Wave CD, I picked it up for a fiver in Sainsburys and it does have the original 7″ versions of the tracks! makes a nice change when the compilers make an effort! :-)

    BP Fallon & David Holmes recorded a eulogy of sorts for Henry McCullough and it featured on Holmes’ Late Night Tales compilation from a couple of years ago.

    Yes my car does have a CD player, although it cost me just over £400 to have it installed. I just could not get on with memory sticks and iTunes. Nothing bloody worked. Hateful technology. So now I can just slip a CD in the player and all is well. Worth the expense. Merry Christmas.

    • Gisabun says:

      I’m going to dread it when I get my next car. I’m sure no CD.

      • O(+> Peter B says:

        Recent VW models including Polo and Golf have CD players, albeit tucked away in the glove compartment. Still, better than not at all. They also have a slot for SD cards, which you can pre-load with your favourite music files. Plus Bluetooth and car play, lots of options.

  18. Branny says:

    £4.99 on Zoom.

  19. KevinK says:

    #1 New Wave has been £5 for the past month on Amazon UK (as has the similar #1 Rock’n’Roll set), so expect it will drop back to that price point.

    Yep it is for the car and the other car ( the Dogs Car) has a tape player !
