We found out over the weekend that selected solo albums of the late Neal Casal are now available on streaming services for the first time in the States, so we’ve checked and the good news is that they’re also available in the UK. ‘Rain, Wind & Speed’ (1996), ‘The Sun Rises Here’ (1998), ‘Field Recordings’ (1997), ‘Basement Dreams’ (1998), ‘Black River Sides with Kenny Roby’ (1999), ‘Anytime Tomorrow’ (2000), ‘Ran On Pure Lightning with Shannon McNally’ (2002), ‘No Wish To Reminisce’ (2006), and ‘All Directions’ (2007) can all now be found on Spotify and Apple Music. If you’re new to Neal’s solo music, we also particularly recommend ‘Fade Away Diamond Time’ which has been available to stream for a while now.
Prior to his death, Casal was recording sessions with his band Circles Around The Sun which will eventually be released, alongside physical reissues of his solo albums which will also be released next year.
