I think the 1990 TV special should have an honorable mention at least. I mean, I'd understand if someone disavows the whole show (like the Star Wars holidays), but a couple of songs were produced for it, like the Henry Mancini arrangement for In the air tonight.
Greate song! For some time I've wondered if this was the first time MR used Moog Taurus pedals.
The opening song being from the previous record might have started with Squonk during the W&W tour.
This is great news. I also have been listening to Alien Afternoon this past weeks.
Got excited about the singles also. I did have a couple of singles back then, and a friend had some others. Some I bought several years after they were released.
I have fixed in my memory some B sides with live tracks during the WCD era:
- Abacab (1987).
- Dreaming while you sleep (1992) *.
- The Brazilian (1987) *.
- Tonight3 (1987 full version).
- Turn it on again (1992).
Of these, only The Brazilian and DWYS where released in the 2nd box set.
Abacab was a great version and comes with a mistake on the bridge to the instrumental section.
Turn it on again was a fresh take of the song, dropping the 60's medley.
I bought the album about the time it came out. Since A Beggar On A Beach Of Gold is the opening track, you get a synth-heavy song right away. I remember some of the interviews around that time, and they said some of the synth parts were done by MR himself.
Can anyone elaborate? If I remember correctly, the synth parts were done either with a guitar synth or programming with a sampled guitar.
The Santiago date was sold out 5 months prior to the show. This is a 1800 seats concert hall. A second date was added on Aug 15th (the previous day). The same ticket link applies.
Thanks for the upload.
Ever since I first learned aboud the 1992 Goodyear Blimp Hangar rehearsals I've been using this story as a "the project is getting larger than life" tale.
Hi guys. You know, we have a bit of a problem. The stage rig will definetly not fit. But don't worry, I already checked out and we might be able to use the Goodyear Blimp Hangar down there near Houston.
MR seems to be using a Moog Taurus II, but plugged to another workstation (33:39). Does someone recognize the workstation?
I always thought it tells about your clothes or shoes in your wardrobe. There's always some piece of wear you use more than others. Like an old comfy sleeping shoe, you put on just stepping into. Those are the ones you know you like and you like the ones you know. As for the newer pieces of wear, it takes some time to get used to. The chorus tries to construct a metaphor into the setlist in a show.
The verses were written with no relation.
Watchout that I'm not a native English speaker.
You should check a Tony Banks interview posted a few weeks ago A Conversation with Tony Banks. The interview was done by Dina Alcalay Pearlman, the daughter of the late A.R.P. It's a pretty long video. They talk lengthy about gear and the ARPs, but also mentions TB orchestral endeavors and the forthcoming Genesis tour. Anyway, the video contains major spoilers for this particular thread.
