Very true - but I'd like to hear an album full of our boy's tunes!
international laughing stock...

I'll admit to being mildly annoyed at EC's refusal to make new records. I'm sure he would tell me to go f**k myself, and yes, how he lives his life is wholly his prerogative. Nonetheless, it's been four years since the Roots record - an album in which others were the driving force - and seven years since the splendid National Ransom. The thought of continuing to follow a semi-retired artist who "favours" us now and again with a minor new "single" and occasional live shows is not terribly exciting. What's really bothersome in all this is the very strong sense that he remains as capable of writing great music as he ever was, and just isn't any longer interested in sharing it. A depressing prospect, to my mind.
