The Listening Club - 28th June 2015

Hey there,

For one week only it's me, @holette, and my main man @JimMcCauley at The Listening Club controls while @kleptones plays tunes at Glastonbury.  He may be at the mother of all festivals but we've got our own spectacular in the form of the annual summer Live Vortex, celebrating your pick of the finest live performances.

Last Sunday, it was, ahem, my pick, and Marlena Shaw's album The Spice of Life, seemed to suit most people's mood. Certainly there were a few people rewinding straightaway so good to spread the love on that one.

As I write, the weather forecast for my part of the world at least, is looking soggy, but the festive spirit is strong! We've erected the Listening Club gazebo, the chai tea urn is on and I imagine Jim standing by in a black bin liner with holes cut for his arms.

I'm sadly unable to join you tonight due to a prior appointment with a yurt four miles down a forest track in Mid Wales (What? No wifi?). So thanks to @JimMcCauley for pulling your tracks together and hosting.

Hope you enjoy the selection, easy on the crowd surfing, and let's hope @kleptones survives his mini break with Motörhead and Sleaford Mods.

Download is here and the Mixcloud (which should be safe from last-minute nuking this time) is below.

See you at 8!
