Bouree by Rajeev Raja- A tribute to Ian Anderson and Rhythm House!
The goodbye jam at Rhythm House, the iconic music store in Mumbai, which was pulling down its shutters.The great Ian Anderson of Jethrotull once visited to sign his albums here. Here's my tribute to Mr Anderson and to Rhythm House...a storehouse of memories.
The guy plays a pretty mean flute.
And who comes here to wish me well? A sweetly-scented angel fell, She laid her head upon my disbelief, And bathed me with her ever-smile.
It appears the store is now closed...Amazing performance by Rajeev Raja Mumbai’s Rhythm House record shop prepares for its swansong Rhythm House LINK With music consumption an increasingly online experience, sales at Rhythm House, which has been around for seven decades, have been declining and its owners recently admitted defeat and made the decision to close down. “It has been on the cards for some time,” says Mehmood Curmally, who owns and runs the storeas its managing director, while his uncle, Amir Curmally, is the chairman. “Online sales of music, be it digital, streaming or physical sales through e-commerce, mean our sales are going to keep going down.”

futureshock: The secret language of birds: millions of yrs old. Just 18+ yrs ago, someone tackled that idea and radiated music back on the topic. That's why it's one of the best reviewed solo albums out there! Chirp that in your blender and take it to the riverside.

maddogfagin: And Devon & Cornwall for some reason. There have been multiple sightings of marsupials in the area over the years although not recently. Possibly been eaten by the legendary Beast of Bodmin perhaps ? 🐱👤

futureshock: "Macropod". That sounds like the ultimate. "Hello, my name is J.P.Carruthers, Macropod, Intended At Large. My podcast is in Wales. I play the glass harmonica in 7 languages and edit outgoing Sumerian braille. Please leave a message."

maddogfagin: Macropod sounds like an overlarge ipod, as opposed to a minipod used by small furry animals.

futureshock: Ages ago, I saw Mr. Thompson at the Vancouver Folk Fest, but I worked fence security and was far away, couldn't hear much. Just being there was amazing though, near the musicians all weekend, saw amazing things. Live music is BEST!

steelmonkey: 'Tragic busy at work but celebrating 44th anniversary of best Tull show ever: Feb. 5, 1975 in El Paso,Texas, one of two gigs inserted in between the famous, 5 night run in LA. Listened to War Child and think 'Two Fingers is better than 'Lick Fingers'.

maddogfagin: War Child is a great album, criminally underrated in the music press but loved by the vast majority of fans.

ash: I really like War Child. Skating Away plays every time I boot my PC
