My wife will be among the first to tell you that when I’m in my office, which is most of the time, I’m dangerous with the 1-Click button on Amazon. Now and then I make a mistake and buy a pile of old shite, as witness, Sting’s turgid Christmas offering, but mostly I get it right, as witness, ‘Get Lucky’ by Mark Knopfler, the excellent ‘Live at the Olympia Dublin’ collection by REM and a wonderful Jimmy Scott CD, ‘Moonglow’. I had not been over-exposed to Florence + the Machine, or their debut album ‘Lungs’, not until she appeared on Jools Holland’s ‘Hootenanny’ New Year show on BBC 2. I hit the 1-Click button and now I’m a convert. Trust me, those of you outside the UK who may not have heard of her, Florence Welch is going to be BIG. The title of her CD is no accident, but she’s one of those people who could sing The Telephone Directory, Live, and get your attention.
