"Roaring Days" by Weddings, Parties, Anything.

First time in ages, forgot how good it was - for the uninitiated WPA are Australian folk-rockers with a Levellers, Oysterband, Men They Couldn't Hang sort of vibe. Great stuff.

WPA have long been popular with all the family. "A Tale They Won't Believe" from the next album was always the kids' favourite.  They did a nice cover of "Bright Lights" too.  Smiley

I'd forgotten about WPA - I had a track by them on an old Cooking Vinyl compilation ("The Wind and the Rain" on "Hootenanny" having looked it up online). I must investigate further (only about 20 years late!)

On a different tack, I wonder if there will be a decent Leon Redbone best of/greatest hits collection put together now he's passed on?

Did you hear about the dyslexic, agnostic insomniac who stayed awake all night wondering if there was a dog...?

 Grin It's not a speeling mistale  Roll Eyes

I see evidence of my dog so believe in his existence
I see no evidence of a God so am highly dubious

Therefore, I use Dog instead of God   Smiley

Thank Dog that's sorted!  Grin

Humanworld by Peter Perrett. Terrific album. I thought How the West Was Won was a fine comeback after a long time away dealing with his well-publicised addiction problems but this is even better. Best thing he's done since The Only Ones for me.

A psychedelic trance track on YouTube by Utopia Strong, the band includes Kovus Torabi of Gong, a member of Coil, and, er, Steve Davis. "Snooker Loopy" it most certainly is not. Mr Davis is a huge prog fan...

...an outstanding live recording of The Who at the Tweeter Center in Mansfield, MA, July 3, 2000.

This was my first Who concert since the 1997 Quadrophenia tour, and the first time to see them as a five-piece (or four-piece plus singer) band since 1982.  The recording is very good, soundboard quality, and the performance itself is wonderful.  Pete had only recently found his way back to the electric guitar, and his style had changed completely by then.  He has to carry most of the melodic load and he does so with massive power chords and dense and surprising solos.  This may be the best live version of "The Real Me" I've ever heard, with John Entwistle's lead bass clearly defined in the mix.  I miss those days...

I saw the Shepherd's Bush Empire gig in Dec '99.  Awesome.  Weird though as I thought Simon played on that tour too (and the subsequent US tour)?  But apparently not....

I saw the London Docklands Arena  gig that November.  Electrifying. Best I ever saw them (bearing in mind I never saw them with Moonie).

Zak on drums. Rabbit on keys. Magnificent. I have always wanted a recording of that show.

My source for Mansfield 2000 also has Docklands 2000 on both CD and DVD.  I don't want to violate etiquette so I'll send you a private message with a link.
