Music today has been Al Di Meola’s Elegant Gypsy (1977). In Texas earlier this year we went to see him play, just him, a sporadic percussionist, a non-sporadic percussionist, and a second guitarist, both of them playing their mad style of fusiony, jazzy, Latin Americany lighting speed licks and weird chords on acoustic guitars. This week, however, on the same tour, he suffered a heart attack on stage in Romania. Our best wishes to him from The Archive and hope for a speedy recovery. I’ve had this album in the collection for forty years, I bought it at the height of punk fever whilst simultaneously enjoying Never Mind The Bollocks.
