Rainsongs and Painsongs - pt.1

Rainsongs and Painsongs is the new edition of YHO which can be downloaded as a pdf here, free for all. It is at heart a celebration of Julie Tippetts' work, very much inspired by her collaboration with Martin Archer on Tales of FiNiN which is undoubtedly the most rewarding record of recent times.
Tales of FiNiN is one of those rare recordings which you find something new in every time you revisit it. While Julie and Martin are both firmly rooted in improvisation, this double LP is intricately put together, both musically and lyrically, and it covers a lot of ground in every sense of the phrase. It's beautifully presented too - actually holding the package in your hand is a delight, and there is an exciting attention to detail. It's an incredibly complex work, but completely accessible and hugely enjoyable.
It really should be a work of art that is widely celebrated, and I urge anyone with an appetite for inspiring and adventurous musical creations to seek out Tales of FiNiN.
Here is a taster ...
