The August ‘That Special Record’ offering is the self titled album by Claude Lombard. As usual, I was completely in the dark about this and, to be honest, having read the blurb I didn’t have high hopes as it felt like a long way outside the sort of music I would listen to. I bit the bullet so to speak and really quite enjoyed side 1 and then read a post at Dereks Music Blog, this post in fact, which says everything I could possibly say and more, so go and read it. Side 2 was just as enjoyable and I surprised myself somewhat by liking it. I included a track in Show 5 of 33 1/3 Radio, along with some other bits and pieces it led me on to listen to that I probably wouldn’t have normally.
