On that front, I expect AI is going to play a big role in re-releasing footage mixed with digital re-enhancements over the next few years. The tech is really gaining momentum.

Forgot to mention we saw Mika in concert. It was a great night and he's a born entertainer, although the backing track did carry him through more than I'd expected. Unfortunately, he didn't sing our favourite song, Tada, possibly again because those high notes are too hard to hit. But it was a visual fiesta, and my wife was rapt he danced through the audience and was but a couple of meters away at one point.

The part I did like was he narrated more of his story, and apparently lived in two places near the theatre (Hammersmith Apollo, where we saw Midnight Oil), so there was a sense of full circle about it for him.

It makes sense that acts would narrate more and sing less as they age. Robbie Williams did the same when we saw him in Dublin.

In terms of spectacle, though, Coldplay was next-level. I was keen on seeing Greenday and Blink182, but we'd already booked this, as Mika was the soundtrack of our first years together in Seoul.

One of my favourite albums of all time - John Mayall's "The Blues Alone", on which he played and sang everything, except the drums.

Here's a few showcasing his very considerable and diverse talents:

Marsha's Mood: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8XvchImDB-s

Sonny Boy Blow: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UhFa6k39kmo

No More Tears: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CXrN7Z2cYaE

Don't Kick Me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmmV-VM5o3s

Broken Wings: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IqYDu4vYnbA

Which, I guess, is why he's had a career lasting 7 decades.

I discovered Type O Negative in late 2022.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Type_O_Negative

I really like their albums

Bloody Kisses (1993)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVvtm52_0IA

October Rust (1996)
https://youtu.be/8S8Iz0mGs_U?list=PLx0yvhJuuBp8XPYdPgnUP4cyG7esT92lz&t=3

The singer and bass player, Peter Steele was 6ft7' and had an epic voice (died in 2010, aged 4Cool
https://youtu.be/ExecmLOYgjg?t=6

In my opinion, a criminally underappreciated band.

Been listening a lot to the album Wish by The Cure lately, particularly these two songs:

From the Edge of the Deep Green Sea: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8V96VQsxdLc
A Letter to Elise: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-yuWLN4g-o

Some lyrics from the latter that are hitting me pretty deeply at the moment:

Quote:
Oh Elise it doesn't matter what you do
I know I'll never really get inside of you
To make your eyes catch fire the way they should
The way the blue could pull me in
If they only would
If they only would
At least I'd lose this sense of sensing
Something else that hides away
From me and you there're worlds to part
With aching looks and breaking hearts
And all the prayers your hands can make
Oh I just take as much as you can throw
And then throw it all away


Though this is pretty good too (from "From the Edge of the Deep Green Sea"):

Quote:
Never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never
Let me go she says
Hold me like this for a hundred thousand million days
But suddenly she slows
And looks down at my breaking face
Why do you cry? what did I say?
But it's just rain I smile
Brushing my tears away

^cheers P4S, that's 17.04 minutes well spent.

While music is aligned to decades, 1965-1975 is the period I'd like to be transported back to.

^ Yes. One of the handful of greatest riffs ever recorded - and the best thing about the recording is that they play that riff over and over again, relentlessly. Psychedlia at its finest.

1968 was one of those years, really. Albums I have that were released that year include:

Large As Life And Twice As Natural, Gris-Gris, Fairport Convention, The Pentangle, Sweet Child, Birthday Blues, Sir John Alot of Merry Englandes Musyk Thynge and ye Grene Knyghte, Steppenwolf, White Light/White Heat, The Hurdy Gurdy Man, Children of the Future, Beggars Banquet, The White Album, Wheels of Fire, Electric Ladyland, Crown of Creation, A Saucerful of Secrets, In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, Bookends, Waiting for the Sun, Cheap Thrills, The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society, Songs of Leonard Cohen, John Wesley Harding, Astral Weeks, Music From Big Pink, Odessey and Oracle, Sweetheart of the Rodeo, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Joni Mitchell, Life, Anthem of the Sun, Dance to the Music, This Was, Boogie with Canned Heat, Truth, The Hangman's Beutiful Daughter, Living the Blues, Wee Tam and the Big Huge, Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake, The Notorious Bird Brothers, The Thoughts of Emerlist Davjack, Shades of Deep Purple, Miles In The Sky, Supersession, Undead, I Heard It Though The Grapevine, Donovan In Concert, Three Dog Night, Sailor, Traffic, The Tumbler, Ars Longa Vita Brevis, Blues From Laurel Canyon, Blood Sweat and Tears, The Soft Machine, Caravan, The Cheerful Insanity of Giles, Giles and Fripp, Daughters of Kilimanjaro, Gun, In My Own Dream.

I've probably missed dozens.

Still in 1968, for the moment:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wSXTN2EfRo

At 2.13, that little three-note decsending run anticipating the beat straight after the final verse/chorus still sends chills. I must have listened to that song thousands of times (CD 1, track 28 of "You Can Get It If You Really Want", Trojan Records' definitive Desmond Dekker collection - track repeat = "on"). What a voice and what a beat.

Good songs, I've heard most of them before albeit some only as covers. The ones I'd never heard before were the Kinks Picture, Beatles some Indian shit AKA Inner Light , Fleetwood mac Albatross, Donovan Hurdy Gurdy man and Meet on the ledge.

^ That's interesting. I know you're no fan of The Beatles, so it doesn't surprise me you've never heard the "B" side of Lady Madonna. It does surprise me a little that you've never heard Albatross or Hurdy Gurdy Man - they are songs I thought were probably surviving cultural icons - but I am aware that Donovan's hippy sensibility locks him in his era.

That said, Donovan had (still has) a magnificent voice - that opening vibrato is him, not an effect. I've seen him sing Hurdy Gurdy Man in concert several times (always in an acoustic arrangement, sometimes just him and his guitar, sometimes with a small group) and he nails that opening every time. Of course, when it was released, the thing that blew most people away was the sound of the guitars in the solo part. In those days, we had no idea who was actually helping out - when Led Zeppelin released their first album the following year, a few people started to realise that Jimmy Page was probably playing one of the guitars (he was) but it took a longer time before the late, great Allan Holdsworth was identified as the other one. Truly one of the great walls of noise of the rock era. As it happens, Donovan wanted Jimi Hendrix to record the song, not him - but the producer wouldn't hear of it. Then, Donovan wanted Jimi to do the solo (wouldn't that have been something?) - but Jimi was touring elsewhere, so they had to "settle" for Page and Holdsworth.

The Kinks' Picture Book wasn't released as a single in most places - but it was in Australia. It had huge radio-play at the time and for a few years afterwards but I don't think Pye (who held the English recording contract with The Kinks - most of their singles in the 60s were licensed to Astor here) had any idea what to do with their evolution ffrom the early R&B they played to the stadium act they became. In music, promotion is everything - and Pye did their best to kill off The Kinks. It's probably an indication of how poor Pye were at the job that The 6-CD "best of" collection of The Kinks released about a decade ago was called "Picture Book" - and thus named after one of their most perfect works, albeit one many people have never heard of.

As a matter of interest, what did you think of Hurdy Gurdy Man? Did you get to the screaming wall of guitars - or did you listen to a few bars and determine that it was a hippy folk song that wasn't for you?
