There are some crackers among the 6 recommended releases for 11 November. For years the concert at which Bob Dylan received the infamous ‘Judas’ heckle was incorrectly labelled as the Royal Albert Hall when in fact it was in Manchester. Now, for the first time, the real RAH gig is released. Imaginatively titled The Real Royal Albert Hall 1966 Concert, this set features Bob and The Band redefining rock’n’roll as they go, it really is that good! Sting’s 12th studio album, 57th & 9th, muses on the world events that occurred during his time away from rock. Simple Minds Acoustic proves that a great song remains a great song when the artifice of arrangement is stripped away; these 12 songs remain Simple Minds through and through. Long Live The Angels, Emeli Sandé’s long-awaited follow-up to Our Version Of Events, marks a new chapter in her life. Many of David Bowie’s finest singles, from 1969’s ‘Space Oddity’ to 2016’s ‘Lazarus’, are collected together in Legacy – for the completists out there it even includes a previously unreleased version of ‘Life On Mars’.
Album of the week is Goodnight City, which highlights what a genuinely involving and intimate songwriter Martha Wainwright is; when that is complemented by her gorgeous vocals then you have a special album indeed.
