Moved to Saturday nights, this year. So the extended set version is on at 22:45 on Saturday, BBC2.

Jet Plane In A Rocking Chair - just the one song last night.

I was unenthused.

Could he have chosen a less engaging song? Probably yes, because he has written a few. However he's probably written a hundred more that would have worked better.

However one song on Jooles Holland, at least chose a crowd pleaser.

Need to wait & see what else he played in the extended programme on Saturday? The BBC then choose one for the short programme, I believe

Who wants to hear VBL again, though? A chum who was there (mainly for The Stereophonics) claims to be a convert. He also mentions that there was a mighty effects rack for an 'acoustic' guitarist.

Just found out the wasp I killed yesterday was a wasp cop who was too old for this s**t and only one week away from retirement. Feel awful.

Strange as the sound desk he was using on tour was tiny.

I think he means that RT had a rather large pedal board by his feet? Otherwise the only rack was for the PA system.

RT doesn't do it for me as an acoustic act. Electric with a band, he is spectacular.

An odd choice of song I thought, vocally and musically doesn't show him to his best. Lyrically there's something for me which I hadn't thought about before but with this platform, an odd choice to showcase but perhaps he had some other reason for singing this song.

What was the overall conclusion on the extended set, then?

I took a quick look last night and he was singing "Meet On The Ledge".  It was an odd sensation as he has such a radically different delivery (of, let's face it, his own song) to Simon's and I found myself conflicted as to whether I was actually enjoying it.

Good to see him on mainstream TV, I will have to watch the whole programme to see what else he played.

So glad you said this, I was feeling just the same. Debating with myself that it seemed very different...but it IS his song, so maybe that was how it SHOULD be...but he could have let the audience join in with the chorus   Grin Wink

I never 'enjoy' MOTL whatever version is being played.  It always feels like an effort to get to the end, followed by cathartic release - it is very nearly too much for me.  Having said that,  Richard's acoustic version (although haven't yet seen this one) is always impressive.

Is your objection scientific, syntactic or etymological? Or are you a ******g mind-reader?

Can a monitor, or whatever title they go by, amend the speeling  on the thread title.

Jet Plane in a Rocking Chair isn't even a set list staple, as far as I can see. I think he's making things up as he goes along. Either that, or they had exactly two and a half minutes to fill..."Hold on Jools - I've got just the thing..."
