Captain Beefheart - Safe As Milk

Record Shopping with Charles WatsonIt’s a classic. He’s just the coolest. ‘I’m Glad’ is basically the song by which I measure other songs.

Herbie Hancock - Secrets

Record Shopping with Charles WatsonI’m gonna be honest. I’ve never heard this record before. The sleeve is killer and I love the HH album Headhunters. Thought it was worth a gamble. I’m listening to it now and the verdict is that Howard Moon would be losing his shit!

Harry Belafonte - Songs Of The Land

Record Shopping with Charles WatsonI really got into ‘Did You Hear About Jerry’ recently and keep seeing Belafonte’s records everywhere. He’s also on that Bobby Kennedy doc is a pretty bloody cool lad.

Joni Mitchell - The Hissing Of Summer Lawns

Record Shopping with Charles WatsonIt blows my mind that you used to be able to turn the radio and you didn’t have to hear a Daniel Bedingfield medley. I’ve only recently started to get onboard with Joni Mitchell and I’m so sad I’ve spent all this time listening to Daniel. Never again will you find me on a deserted rooftop car park at 3 am, with all the doors open, endlessly scrolling through the Bedingfield pop dynasty’s back catalogue. You can’t make me do it. Basically, I like Joni Mitchell now. Sorry, Daniel... you were the first example that came to mind. Let’s go for a latte and I can apologise.

Drinks - Hermits On Holiday

Record Shopping with Charles WatsonI’ve been a huge fan of Cate Le Bon for a long time. Killer guitar sounds!!
