I rest my case regarding post-W&W Genesis...

No thank you Bob.

The Czar album is a corker though

Good lad

Yes, good lad

Not what you’d expect from Manilow - 2 am Paradise Cafe is a really nice album, the whole thing recorded live in one take apparently. (It does have that feel to it.)

Got to be one of the heaviest songs ever to reach the UK Top 10.

Not my kind of thing these days but I loved it at the time and I have to admit it does have lots of energy.
The vocals annoy me though. Maybe it's just my imagination, but I feel like he's taking it a bit seriously.

And they all have awful hair.

I like this well enough Lord, even got their first LP, never really liked the hysterical laughing bits much though. Gurvitz brothers wasn't it?

Yes indeed, or Curtis as they were at that time!

Californian band the members of which have heavy metal roots but formed this band for their more progressive leanings. It is not heavy metal and is an excellent album. Released in 2016 I have been eagerly awaiting a follow up but nothing showing as yet.

I agree they were great at singles but Sweets From a Stranger and especially East Side Story are great albums as well.

This song, along with I've Returned, is a standout track from its album but I think they were much more than just a singles band.

Fantastically robust!

A great single from a really good album (their eponymous debut)

The Gurvitz brothers who were the Curtis brothers when in Gun but reverted back to the real surname ‘Gurvitz’ when the formed the Baker Gurvitz Army with Peter

Incidentally, Adrian was 18

Great stuff

What a great song this is. Although I have heard a number of their singles over the years I’ve never played an album - must rectify.

For about 20 years I really disliked Steve Hogarth’s voice then for some reason it clicked with me on F.E.A.R. Now I am catching up on Marillion and his other collaborations - this track came on a Prog playlist (not mine) today and it sounded great. The classical orchestral sound from the band really appeals. Must seek out more.

Dry The River - No Rest (from the album Shallow Bed)

I like everything they released, shame they broke up a couple of years ago.

(Interesting video.)

Some days they hit the spot, other days they irritate. Well, it’s the voice really.

Enjoyed it today.

My all-time fave NY track. That guitar.....

Shame the live versions that I’ve heard are pretty awful with that inexcusable “he come-a dancin’ across de water man” nonsense.
