Worth a stream, definitely. I really like the live versions of Turn It On Again and Abacab, plus the In The Cage medley is thrilling (and I don’t normally like medleys). Note the side 4 differences between the U.K. and US versions...it’s all on Wiki.


This is pretty much it....

Modern-Rock Ensemble - Night Dreams and Wishes

Ukrainian Vladimir Gorashenko is MRE + 26 guests on this album.

Largely instrumental it is long, varied, jazzy, classical, complex and quite pleasant but not really my preferred cuppa. Good background music I suspect so it might get some more plays at work.

Kilbey Kennedy - Glow and Fade

Collaboration from Kilbey of The Church and Kennedy of All India Radio.... synth pop / lush acoustica (stolen that description) with mild prog undertones and gentle ambience. Not normally my bag but I rather like this album.

Argentinian instrumental heavy prog - I liked one of their studio albums a couple of years ago and have played this live album recently. Gave it another try yesterday but I really didn’t like it.

Good album. Do you like The Church? If you haven’t investigated them, you’d probably like After Everything Now This and Hologram Of Baal as starters.

Don’t think I’ve heard them before so will stick them on a playlist, thanks.

NP - A beaut of an epic.

Soundchaser - oodles of mellotron, and those harmonies.... definitely one for your attention.

NP Chasing The Monsoon - No Ordinary World

An offshoot from the band that the leader Ian Jones breaks up every few years, Karnataka.

This features Lisa Fury on vocals who was with the aforementioned Karnataka 10+ years ago - she sounds a helluva lot like Judy Tzuke on some tracks (can’t find any on YouTube to link).

Celtic influences obvious, good tunes, nice guitar and vocals. I like it a lot.

Seven Steps To The Green Door - The?Lie

SSTTGD is a band that didn’t click with me on their previous release (1st I’d heard) “Fetish”, but this one will send me back to investigate further.

An excellent closing track.

I always thought the title came from 3 sides live , and assuming, one side studio...

Obviously not as I have now read Wiki

I detested And Then There Were Three... and Duke and have never heard the next one.

Phil can't sing like Peter but he is a great great tub thumper - superb - Cinema show, as always.

Chester is a powerhouse but as one of Zappa's boys one would expect that.

I'll pass on listening to the rest of the album but thanks all for piquing my interest

From what I’ve heard Phil Collins was a far better live singer than Gabriel, whose performances on YouTube are almost universally horrendous. Studio material I’d take Gabriel’s depth and tone over Collins though.

It always amazes me seeing the change in Phil’s stage persona during the 70s.... the apparently quiet and shy one who stepped forward and became the manic uninhibited front man. Hell of a transformation and one that I admire massively.

My vinyl version (which would certainly have been purchased in the U.K.) has the 4th side as the studio material and to my mind it was definitely called Three Sides Live because that is what the album consisted of.

Later versions brought in the 4th side live...

Franck Carducci - The Answer

French Multi instrumentalist and his band are one of the hardest working on the circuit, always touring. Apparently his shows are hugely entertaining - I must make the effort to see him next time....

1st play of his new release isn’t grabbing me yet, but will give it time.

I'm not sure about that Bob

Collins began professional acting lessons at fourteen at the Barbara Speake Stage School, a fee-paying but non-selective independent school in East Acton whose talent agency had been established by his mother

Rick Lambe is a 40 year veteran session and gig player who has made a couple of albums recently with other Lambes.

Not bad, proggy, well played without taking off.
