What Are You Listening To?
^Helluva voice on Mr Dio - awesome track indeed.
Don't seem to make many of them like this anymore! With all that grit and underlying power.

That Rainbow track is my favourite of theirs. Busy listening to Georg Voros's 'Bach To Me'. A very different type of album. Arrived in the post today. Just started listening to it and it sounds good so far.
'The purpose of life is a life of purpose' - Athena Orchard.
^I have, and like the album - spent some time with Georg and his wife - he is a thoroughly nice individual as well as being dedicated to his craft - a disciplined, focused drummer. Big fan of ELP. He and Duncan made an album after that, called The Bletchley Park Project which is out there somewhere - I heard it once, in Georg's studio ... they have since parted ways.

Blood, Sweat & Tears - Mirror Image - 1974

[Image: Mirrorimagebs%26t.jpg]

this is nothing like the bands previous 6 albums
the reason is that Bobby Colomby on drums was the only original member left
I thought they burnt out after 3 albums but I love those 3
all things must pass
would not recommend this one at all

one of the few originals

they had three absolute classic singles IMO...

You Make Me So Very Happy
Spinning Wheel
And When I Die

I own nothing, I should at least get a compilation for those three songs alone!

Pretenders - Learning to Crawl - 1984


3rd album
their highest charting here at #5
2 band members od'd since the last release
oh well, let's move on
they still had it for this one

I can relate

yup, love that album MH, my favourite album of theirs....
fave on the album was Back On The Chaingang...

loved their cover of Thin Line Between Love And Hate also

have five of their albums, the first four, then I went back for their sixth

Warren Zevon - Sentimental Hygiene - 1987

[Image: 220px-Sentimental_Hygiene_album_cover.jpg]

6th album
5 year layoff
reached #63 here
not that keen on it
only the title track makes it for me
very nice guest lineup (or are they featured artists)
all REM members, Mike Campbell, Bob Dylan, Flea, Don Henley, David Lindley, Jennifer Warnes, Neil Young
he had cool friends
hard to believe he's been gone 15 years


I have several of his album MH but not this one...

a good solid songwriter IMO,
there was so much more to Zevon than "werewolves of London"
