Happy & healthy new year! Let's hope for good music and good news ... the world is strange these days
Never understood why they separated HBTS on the record into two parts.
So I've picked Silver Rainbow, It's Gonna Get Better and Mama
11 points. Good, but not outstanding. great memories, though ...
Same here, too expensive. Nice to see the new mixes are at least available in digital format now. Thx for letting us know!
Good song, but nothing spectacular. Nevertheless I am curious about this album. Looks like he's now with a major company again!
I bought this - I simply was curious. And I must say I am quite impressed! I'm not really into this kind of music but you can hear Ant's dedication to his work in every note. I couldn't listen to this one in one go, but every now and then I put on a track from Strings Of Light
The record is also close to 40 years old and I can imagine he tried to work around his speaking voice, which seemed weak to him in terms of singing. But I agree, you wouldn't guess it's Mike if you didn't know that
That's great news! And looks like his Genesis Revisited tours are never ending
Looks like Ant talked to someone who knew what he was talking about. Awesome interview - many thanks.
Don't think they will do a CD version of this. It looks more like "let's get this out in the simplest way", so why bother with the logistics of a CD release? Still a shame, but that's how it works these days. See also Other sides by Phil
Calling all stations
The dividing line
tricky nevertheless, Congo, Not about us and Alien afternoon are also good!
thx for posting! Great article.
That really sounds like an interesting project.
Will this album also be sold in Europe?
About time to listen to that one again. I think I even have that on SACD somewhere....
Not sure about these "what's the best / worst album" questions.
If you forced everybody to make a list - best to worst - it still doesn't say #15 on the list is a bad album. I can find great moments on every album. Duke and Selling may be my favorites and for me more valuable than FGTR and CAS, but I still do like listening to those as well.
FGTR was a very naive album and has little to do with what was to come. So it may qualify to be their "worst"
No, Phil only took a break in 2017. He's playing in one go since Latin America.
.... where to start?
Never liked Happy The Man - then also Anything She Does is far from being a favorite of mine.
Basically, there a tracks from all albums that I dislike, but these are my "worst moments"
Battle Of Epping Forest
Harold The Barrel
Back In NYC
Trick Of The Tail
Match Of The Day
Scenes From A Night's Dream
Keep It Dark
Taking It All Too Hard
Since I Lost You
If That's What You Need
jus a selection ...
Enjoyable interview - and interesting questions. Thanks a lot!
Didn't know he was a fan of Johnny Cash
Thanks! Looking forward to it. Any idea when it will go online?
For me it’s one of the best tracks they have done as a trio. It probably is a bit too much soundwise, i.e. period piece, hence only 14 points
