Nice enough music, thought I had Spectral Mornings and was going to give that a listen but can't seem to find it.

"Star of Sirius" is a personal favourite. Bought this album the same time as my mate bought "Beginnings" by Steve Howe. Think I got the best one. However, God put Steve (and Steve) in bands for a reason .....they're not strong enough to make it as a solo artist

Without a doubt you got the best one, 'Beginnings' is abysmal, the man should have stuck to guitar and not bothered singing, awful record.

You've reviewed a Genesis album before I can get to it on my thread, robertff!

Voyage of the Acolyte is next.

I've been looking for this for ages and it does not disappoint. Great set list & top notch sound quality, plus Don is giving as good as he gets from the audience & the band are cooking.

Sorry about that Matt, at least it was one I could listen to all the way through! Nevertheless, I'm sure your review will be infinitely more interesting than my one line comment.

It's excellent!

Some great bing with the audience


I checked to see when I bought it:

Last purchased 12 Feb 2011

Over ten years ago! (amazing - time flies)

Replaying this amazing album from last week's PSL.

Image

What a masterpiece! Such feeling, such great, heartfelt songs. I am astounded that such young musicians as Free were then could produce over the period 1968-1973 such lasting, sensitive, deep music. They were in their teens to early 20s and made wonderful music.

Sadly, the flip side of that particular coin is how Bad Company could have made such disposable, boorish, shallow music. They were adults making records that I found embarrassing as a teenager.

Agreed Chris, but I like the first Bad Co album very much

Oh. Don’t think I’ve played them for a few years but I really enjoy most of the 1st 3 albums.

The dramatic orchestral ending / fade out to the track Run With The Pack is a particular favourite.

I know it’s pretty easy listening MOR but I’ve always liked Silver Blue and Gold as well. Chastise me!

Not at all

Muddie is being about hard I feel but that's Muddie!

The first is excellent and the second is good to my old ears

Then we part company (groan...)

They certainly weren't a patch on Free

Different band, different music C. unfair to compare them to Free I think. Bad Co. set out to be more commercial which was what they achieved. I saw them live at Earl's Court round about the time their second album came out, odd thing was that they just weren't loud enough and they seemed very restrained.

Nice.

Presumably tons/tonnes of live stuff it tip-top sound quality...?

Or endless alternative takes of tracks that we've all heard a million times (and I may add, happy to hear another million)?
