Kevin Bryan delivers his verdict on some of this week's CD releases.

The Marriage,"Imagining Sunsets" (The Marriage Music)- "Imagining Sunsets" is the eagerly anticipated debut album from UK based Americana duo Dave Burn and Kirsten Adamson,,recorded remotely at the pair's home studios in Edinburgh and London during the lockdown and well worth half an hour or so of anyone's time. These musical soulmates occupy a beguiling creative niche somewhere between Richard and Linda Thompson and Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris, excelling themselves with touching tales of lost love and loneliness such as "True Anger," "The Deal" and "Too Late To Cry About It Now."

The Dave Brubeck Quartet,"Time OutTakes" (Wienerworld)-This interesting archive collection brings together a string of sparkling performances which ultimately proved surplus to requirements when the time came for Dave Brubeck and company to assemble their 1959 album,"Time Out." This was the first jazz long-player to notch up sales in excess of one million, and Wienerworld's new offering serves up alternate takes of classic compositions from the album such as "Take Five," "Three To Get Ready" and "Blue Rondo A La Turk" for your listening pleasure, underlining pianist Brubeck's status as one of the leading practitioners of the then highly fashionable "cool jazz" style.

"Peephole in My Brain-The British Progressive Pop Sounds of 1971" (Grapefruit/Cherry Red)- This eccentrically assembled 3 CD set ranges far and wide in its choice of subject matter as it strives to present an authentic portrait of the wildly eclectic musical culture of Britain in the early seventies. A vast array of interesting obscurities dominate the proceedings, although the good people at Grapefruit have also found the space to include a string of bona fide archive gems from the likes of Kevin Ayers, Atomic Rooster, The Move and Curved Air,whose insidiously memorable offering,"Back Street Luv," is one of the highlights of the entire package.
