The Listening Club - 4th December 2016

Greetings folks,

Hope all is good in your hoods, Amsterdam's in rare sunny day mode, which is welcome, if chilly, especially as the kinderlings of the city await the arrival of Sinterklass tomorrow, although I'm hoping he's recovered from his weekend drinking, as we saw him looking rather three-sheets-to-the-wind in a bar last night...

Last week, @Har_Shone was in the chair presenting her high-body-count debut pick of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds' classic "Murder Ballads" which went down rather well indeed. Thanks to Harriet for the pick, and for sailing the frisb like a pro across to that @samsmitter, who's here with this week's intro...

"My favourite ever album? For me its a bit like the pop charts, and the number one spot changes at least once a month. This album held the prestigious title of My Favourite Album Ever for at least 6 months, a Mull-Of-Kintyre style run at the prestigious 16-18 formative age. The artist is one of those you either really like or you really don't - if you like him, this is far and away his best album in my opinion, and if you don't, sorry! - its only 36 minutes long. This is one from the glory days before some idiot told him he could sing, and he started recording albums with string quartets. Just a great band, swirling organ, and great songs. Hope you enjoy it."

Righty-ho. Direct download is here, and the spoiler-laden HearThis stream is below:

See you at 8pm GMT.
