Day 2 of the transition process and it's been a jazz day.

Amongst other random tracks I've played albums (mainly from the All That Jazz releases) by:

Bix Beiderbecke
Art Tatum
Lester Young
Dizzy Gillespie
Oscar Peterson
Thelonious Monk
Charlie Parker
Count Basie
Django Reinhardt
Louis Armstrong

17 hour day yesterday, 13 hours so far today and still going strong. (I still love numbers and a challenge!)

NEW MUSIC, released today.

Oh yes, lovely stuff. New singer Alberto Bravon (ex PFM) has done a fine job stepping into David Longdon's shoes. Different tone to his voice but a helluva range, with a slightly more rock 'n' roll edge. Unsurprisingly, although all the BBT elements are there, there is a noticeable (if certainly not drastic) change to the feel of the album, which is to be expected with one of the main songwriters no longer around.

This is the album's epic....

I'm pretty ambivalent about the Eurythmics. Capable of brilliance ..."Sweet Dreams", "Who's that girl", capable of dross "There must be an angel", "Would I lie to you", Annie capable of great vocals, Dave capable of being a pretentious ego maniac

For a while there they produced a string of really good albums - like all music, you either like it or you don’t.

Don’t quite understand the ‘pretentious ego maniac’ bit but there you go.

Have you ever heard him interviewed? He thinks he's a cross between Mozart, McCartney and Fellini

They sound very much like The Who circa My Generation, Creation, Yardbirds that kind of high intensity RnB sound. Interesting, but save your pennies. Ronnie did better.

As for Pilot I only know the hit/s.

NP CD2


Matt's post gave me a nudge to play this. Got the records but haven't played the box CDs for a while.

First time I came across the VU was when I swapped Sgt Pepper for White Heat/White Light in 1969. Don't really know what possessed me to do it, I also swapped Electric Ladyland for the Airplane's Bless it's Pointed Little Head and Kevin Ayer's Joy of a Toy. I guess I just wanted to hear something different that I hadn't heard before. The VU was a shock to the system.

I like the first three very much





This is an album I bought within the last decade - I'm not that familiar with it.

Previously, I probably only played it twice

I played Part 1 last night and now playing the rest.

Views - other than it's not as good as the first three....?
