Jonathan Wilson - 'Rare Birds'.

Dearest friend,
I was up again ‘til 5am (after djing til 3am) listening to the maestro - turning night into day with ‘Rare Birds’ on repeat is fast becoming my default setting and ‘just something I do’...

And hey, here I am right now laying in bed this fine Sunday morning, hanging on to every precious and inspired word once again - and oh man how those words sweetly caress the mind and the soul...

A genuine masterpiece but what an incredibly subtle one; almost psychic in its gentle delivery, intuition and knowingness!

I imagine this is what it must have felt like to unwrap 'Sgt Peppers...' or 'Dark Side Of The Moon' 🌒 for the first time on their day of release and be utterly blown away by the ‘crazy new sounds of the day’...

The whole album has an alluring and seductive 'simplexity' about it - minimal, organic, techno-futuristic elements, not quite seen or rather heard before, combine with some of the more overblown aspects of the giants of music's glorious past to create something genuinely original and new.

- We are truly blessed to be part of this
- I’ve never heard a better record
- Rock and Roll is very much alive - Rock ‘n’ Roll will never die.
