Great clip. But what is he wearing on his legs??
Also, I didn’t realise that for Cathedral his right hand stays glued to the volume control, creating the effect while his left hand does everything with hammer-ons and pull-offs.
He was quite something.
No matter how many times you listen to it, there is always something new. I keep coming back to this solo from time to time, even though I know nothing about playing the guitar.
Much as I love that album, I could never quite justify picking up that version of it. I did buy the single blister pack version twice though. My dad chucked away the packaging the first time round, thinking it was rubbish
I would have been mortified too !
The packaging of some of their CD’s is sublime. The embossed face, which changes in expression dependant on the angle it’s viewed at, on Let It Come Down especially !
I was just the other day listening to this on Spotify along with other hard rock / heavy metal anthems.
nice little read on synth/keyboard players…in what appears to be a well written and thought out “top” article
Dave Greenwood a fav and a sad loss…was meant to see the farewell tour last month, now in April…but likely to be much later…if at all
This is coming up in a few minutes - Judee Sill - definitely worth a listen!
(Just to say, it’s available on Sounds if you missed it)
Can’t see clearly what the box condition looks like, but an intact set like this would probably go for somewhere between £150 - £200, which isn’t too shabby!
Great band, great tune. Never saw them live which is a regret. I was also massively into Loop who had quite a bit in common.
As per new, it’s been in a cupboard for 23 years, wrapped in kitchen foil, to prevent light damage !
Hmm, £150 would buy a lot of wine these days. Mind you, £70, would have done the same in 1997.
Unsurprisingly, the same here. Like some of S3’s releases, original vinyl can fetch a pretty penny now. Not that I’m tempted to sell as they still get played and bring back many nostalgic memories.
I’m revisiting this. It’s Weyes Blood working with Drug Dealer - it’s sort of dreamlike and deeply strange, and feels like it popped out of a time machine from the mid '70s, done by a bunch of futurists trying to capture the ennui they imagined might be the future. Or something.
Her Front Row Seat To Earth LP is rather good too.
This album has recently been made available across major streaming platforms, and it’s worth a listen.
Happy memories of listening to this album to death in my late teens… The past really is a foreign country
I shall check it out!
In my mid-teens I was in a band that played a cover of Shine On. Bloody awful we were too!
Thankfully zero evidence of that band exists anywhere (as far as any of us is aware!).
They are/were an interesting bunch. Terry Brickers was definitely a huge asset, and his departure triggered a re-evaluation without much of a change in direction. I managed to see them live once, and it didn’t disappoint. Massive first album though. Fully realized and every song a triumph. Few bands managed to do that in the 80s and 90s.
