For the first time in a dog’s age I bought an album on the day that it was released. That album was The Old Magic, the new one from Nick Lowe. It oozes with the class we’ve come to expect from Mr Lowe and only few days in my possession it has already become my new favourite album.
Naturally, I spotlight the album in Packet Of Three, playing three cuts from it.
Also, we play another game of Connect Four our musical connections game, I play a track from my erstwhile co-host Simon Baker’s old mate Neil Byrne AKA The Burning Astronomers, a taster from their new album Kings Of England, amid the fine array of quality pop tunes.
