Joup’s Friday Album: Lovage – Music to Make Love to Your Old Lady By

lovageWhy don’t you go ahead and come over here and sit by the fire.  Have yourself a drink…something smooth.  Listen to the ice cubes clink around in the glass as you slink down onto the soft and plush rug on the floor.  Close your eyes and breathe deeply.  Feel the heat from the hearth on your face.  Relax.  Loosen those top buttons on your shirt and prepare yourself for an aural aphrodisiac.  It’s about to get a whole lot sexier in here.

Joup’s Friday Album – Chris Bell’s “I Am the Cosmos”

chrisbellLike most everyone, I came across Chris Bell’s lone album I Am the Cosmos way, way late. The material was recorded over a three year period during the mid 70’s, but aside from a 7” single of the title track featuring “You and Your Sister” on the B-side, it didn’t receive a proper release until 1992, well over a decade after Bell’s tragic death. It was worth the wait though.
