    Default Portishead - Dummy

    Having never owned or even heard this album before, I have just received it through the post on CD from Amazon. As I am heavily influenced by electronic music I am hoping it is nothing short of a bloody miracle music wise. I am trying to catch up with albums I should have bothered with decades ago but unfortunately didn't. I have also just received the album Play by Moby also on CD as I sold my vinyl copy a few months back. Good album.

    Yes, Roseland NYC is indeed fantastic - basically it is Dummy performed live.

    I saw portishead back in the 90s as dummy was released.

    Pretty amazing. The album is astounding. I really like their next album 'Portishead - Portishead' too... That is just as weird but a tad darker... I like weird and dark.

    Congrats in getting it. Classic.

    If you like Portishead then maybe give Beth Gibbon's solo LP a try too. Beth Gibbons and Rustin Man, Out of Season - moody.
