My kids cannot believe this was our fun back in the day.
Those bands that you believed in, and were good, but for some reason never resonated with the masses.
Phil Campbell/White Buffalo, pre his Temperance Movement days, is my choice.
Let the undiscovered fly…
A review of their albums has been posted here:
Black Sea is my favourite.
A great HD remastered 1 hour concert here for those of us who like this type of thing.
I hosted a New Years Eve Party this year and I realised that time has moved on as me and my guests grooved to Chic and Good times on the BBC whilst all sat on the sofa rather than standing up and dancing…drink was not a factor.
It made me think about the years I spent on my knees air guttering to Guns and Roses in my 20/30s at similar events. Times change!
I bought a box of Celebrations.
Following a lunch the family opened it whilst I did the washing up. What was left…my favourites!
Bounty and Snickers. I can only conclude, music wise, that the Snickers is the hard rock sweet and Bounty is (soft) Prog. Full on Prog would be a full bar of Raisin and Nut Dark Chocolate eaten over a three hour period.
What does it sound like?:
This is the sixth album from the Alan Parsons Project and is a very smooth, prog-lite album with some great tunes. It reached number 27 in the UK album charts and is one of their most commercially successful albums.
Sirius (an instrumental) starts the album off before segueing into “Eye in the Sky” which is a catchy pop tune that was a big hit in many countries and features the lead vocals of Eric Woolfson. The overall sound of the album is very laid back with only “You’re Gonna Get Your Fingers Burned” approaching anything near a harder rock sound. The album finished with it’s strongest track “Old and Wise” which is a lovely balled sung by Colin Blunstone looking back on the writers life. Old and Wise was even a minor hit in the UK reaching number 74 in early 1983.
The additional tracks on this release are demo versions of the various tracks and some instrumental version which do not really add much additional value over the original album, which is excellent.
What does it all *mean*?
It is nice to hear how the songs were developed through the additional material but » Continue Reading.
Recorded late last month to promote the new Greatest Hits album I imagine.
This is a great gig from a band at the top of their form.
We will knock off the runs and win.
This has the potential to be the best ever Ashes Test EVER!!
Who knew after day 3.
I love Test cricket.
Mary.Mungo and Midge.
The best prog rock band name never used!
I have been a ‘fan” off and on for the last 30 years.
Seen them live a couple of times and really enjoyed sone albums – especially Keep the Faith and Slippery When Wet.
Anyone else want to confess?
As I was at the reception desk of an old and faded hotel in Harrogate yesterday enquiring after the exit code for the car park I was told it was 2112.
I looked across at my colleague who smiled knowingly.
“That will be easy for me to remember “he confirmed. I said no more.
As we left I asked about his love of Rush.
“Who are they?” was his response.
After a few awkward moments it was apparent he was born on the 21st December!
Probably not a great example.
But what do they do…
Here you go son…
A starter, meal and sticky rice for £10.95.
No need for a rider there then!
I searched on previous posts on here but the only one that came back with any reference to it was one about Suede from our dearly departed Mr James Blast.
The Icicle Works were fantastic and most of his solo work has been excellent as well.
Any other fans here?
Liverpool Girl…top tune.
31 year since their debut album was released.
I feel old!!!
I thought some of my previous workplaces were bizarre but this is comedy gold.
Two previous series are available on Youtube (I guess).
2012 the Olympics pre-cursor is also essential viewing.
Long live the BBC!
Back in the day I had couple of rare vinyl albums that I sold in the early 2000s for a nice profit.
Does this market still exist for vinyl or CDs?
I have nothing to sell but am just curious.
