1. Product Details

Double vinyl LP pressing. 2020 collection. Its the day after the 60s. You turn on the radio and there is news about John leaving the Beatles - or will Paul be the first to jump There is insecurity and uncertainty. The rain filters into the post-psychedelic pre-progressive sound in times of upheaval you always notice bad weather. Occasional Rain is the sequel to Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs highly successful English Weather collection. This is the sound of young bands experimenting in a period of flux feeling for a new direction exploring jazz and folk - as many songs are led by mellotron piano and flute as they are by guitar. Lyrically there are two themes that crop up regularly: the search for a home that isnt there anymore - the certainties of the optimistic 60s the physical reality of terraced streets - and the rain. For the former theres Cressidas gentle keening Home And Where I Long To Be while Duncan Brownes shape-shifting Ragged Rain Life feels like a decent summary of Britain in both 1970 and 2020. Occasional Rain puts the eras bigger names Traffic Yes Moody Blues and the lesser known Mandy More Shape Of The Rain Tonton Macoute side by side. Like its predecessor English Weather it evokes the turn of the new decade a beautiful state of fuzzy confusion and the feel of a wet Saturday afternoon at the dawn of the 70s spent flicking through the racks wondering whether to buy the new Tull album or maybe take a chance on that Christine Harwood album in the bargain bin go on you wont regret it.
