Staying in the same sort of time period and listening to the Live at Knebworth 1990 album, with Tears for Fears, Quo, Cliff, Robert Plant, Genesis, Eric Clapton, Dire Straits, Paul McCartney and Pink Floyd.


Did you go to that gig? Had a great day except for the rain and the light under which we parked the car not working when we got back to the car park so it took us ages to find the car! (It was in the days before remote locking). Still got the programme and the original vinyl album as well as the anniversary CD with new tracks  Grin

No, I wasn't there.  Just picked up the album on download for not too much recently!

Enjoy!  I'd love to see them live too.  But I've already been to two gigs this week, and Hassocks (why Hassocks?) is a way to go!

Yes I wondered why Hassocks too, though I have previously seen John Jones & the Reluctant Ramblers at the same venue so it is not unprecedented.

Travelin' Thru- the new Bob Dylan Bootleg Series set.

Its an odd one this. I have to say it sounds fantastic throughout. My favourite discs are 1 & 3 which contain respectively some nice alternative versions of John Wesley Harding & Nashville Skyline and live performances from Johnny Cash & Earl Scruggs TV shows. Disc 3 also contains Dylan's own versions of Ring of Fire and Folsom Prison Blues, recorded for Self Portrait but unused. These may be the highlight of the set. Disc 2 though is the famous Dylan/Cash recording sessions and whilst it is never less than listenable or even enjoyable it is much more of a Johnny Cash record than a Dylan one with Bob just singing harmonies for the most part and Cash absolutely dominating. Selling it as a Dylan record is therefore somewhat misleading. This material was slated for a duets album at the time which was never issued but they are not really even duets. It is Johnny Cash accompanied by Bob Dylan.

By coincidence I am listening to it for the first time right now.
Only heard the first disc so far, but I like what Iím hearing, although to me, about 50% of the takes donít sound significantly different from the released versions.

@Black Crowes - Shake Your Money Maker  ... Jealous Again still hits the spot.
A band with a real singer!

Been reading the drummer's book,  Shocked evidently the Robinson Brothers, particularly Rich, were (P28) 'obsessed with Nick Drake' and his guitar tuning, which led to led to She Talks To Angels. IMO one heck of a toon.

But you folks probably knew that Smiley

I've scraped together enough money for this and will be buying it this week.    Cheesy

Having a little prog-fest on my own today as I'm working a 9 hour day (I usually work 6) so need good music to top up the motivation.

I will be exploring Big Big Train's back catalogue this morning starting with Folklore, then I shall move on to Spock's Beard and hopefully fit in some Steven Wilson and/or Porcupine Tree at the end. Might have a guest appearance just to liven up the day - I fancy some Unattended Luggage by Nick Mason.

Have a great day everyone!  Kiss

Eno and Byrne's My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts.

A album oft referred to in musical press of various sorts over the years, but I'd never heard anything from it. I always wondered what it sounded like, so I bought it.

I've only played it the once so far, but I can safely say it sounds like Eno and Byrne's My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts.

I adore that album. I bought it when it first came out based on, I think, Nicky Horne playing a couple of tracks on his radio show but it may have been John Peel. It was a pretty left field purchase for me as a teenager, though I was already a Talking Heads fan. Absolutely groundbreaking stuff. I may give it a spin later.

I had a bit of an early(up to and including New Gold Dream) Simple Minds fest yesterday.
They made some amazingly great music.

Some of that early stuff produced by Hillage, of course..

Wasn't one track subsequently omitted from reissues because of some negative reference to Islam or the Koran - or am I just making this up?

I don't think it was because of a negative reference. I believe it was because the use of the Koran in a piece of secular music was thought to be potentially offensive to some muslims.

Apparently this track was reinstated on early CD versions and omitted again. It's a bit weird for me to place this early sampling exercise back in my denim and leather metal years. Seems like a lifetime ago and just last week.
