My favourite Soft Machine album.
I didn't want to start a new thread so decided to stick this in here. Probably I'm alone in not realising TB ever did any public performances of his solo stuff so I was surprised when I came across this. Are there any other examples?
EDIT: I just noticed the earlier mention of a Pebble Mill (or similar type of show) appearance. Seems he was very much aiming to make Bankstatement a very visible M&tMs type project.
To be honest, I cannot even hear Tony's work. Too much poppy music in the background.
Really like this album
Not particularly a KB fan but Mrs Backdrifter is and to make sure both our tastes are well covered on journeys i did this compilation for the car.
Hounds of Love
The Red Shoes
Jig of Life
Top of the City
Moments of Pleasure
Love & Anger
The Morning Fog
You're the One
Heads We're Dancing
This Woman's Work
The Sensual World
Somewhere In Between
King of the Mountain (live)
Running Up That Hill
The sharp-eyed will notice it leans heavily on TSW and TRS. This is mainly as, from my perspective as a peripheral KB listener, those albums strike me as her creative peak and are the most attuned to my tastes. Mrs Backdrifter likes them too and is very happy with the compilation, plus she isn't too bothered about the first few albums so doesn't mind their not being represented. Also, she went to a Before the Dawn show in 2014 and was blown away by it - that show itself ignored the first 4 albums.
Speaking of which:
If you didn't already get it I'd say yes, give it a go.
I know you like Kanye West. Your Wife has better taste then you!.....
I don't share this attitude toward other artists and especially their fans. The world is big enough for Steve Hackett, Kanye West and Rihanna. The greater popularity of the latter two is multifactorial and not a big mystery. I enjoy some of their material myself although I'm not that familiar with most of it.
In fact - and I'm not trying to be controversial here, just honest - if I had an hour to kill, I'd rather take a punt on Kanye's new album than Steve's latest effort (I haven't heard either). I might go on to regret that decision but c'est la vie! Also, I'm not trying to make a point about one specific artist vs another, more a general point about attitudes towards other music fans and artists.
I'm the opposite, who's Kanye? LOL.... I'm a huge Hackett fan and love most of his music.
I'm not into bland stuff!..... It just bores me silly.
many people (including myself) name 'a trick of the tail' among their favourite genesis albums. however, the singles from this album -the title track and entangled- charted very poorly, if at all. it's a pity, because 'a trick of the tail' includes a few songs that could have worked well as singles, the same way that i know what i like did.
Genesis actually were not a singles band at that time, not like Queen or something similar to that. They were more an album band, like Floyd. Of course we will never find out what might have happened, had they been promoted differently.
Also, I don't think the value / ranking of an album should be related to hit singles
Genesis was very much an album oriented band from 1969 to the late 70s. When Hackett and Gabriel left the band, then the hits started to flow. They moved from the Prog scene more towards commercial success which they achieved.
A single track can range from 2.5 minutes to let say 5 minutes. Queens Bohemian Rhapsody lasted almost 6 minutes long at 5.55. That was considered a very long track.
ProgArchives list still a number of Genesis albums amongst the top 50 of all time.
No2. Selling England By The Pound
No 13. Nursey Crime
No 51. A Trick Of The Tail
Genesis to Revelations(1969)could quite well of been a singles album, as most of the tracks are very short.
