Re: Dear Chris

Been somewhat shellshocked since I heard the news on Planet Rock yesterday afternoon. As Chris above alluded to, I knew he was not well and that the prognosis was probably poor. I feel honoured to have seen him live (I think ten times) and have many treasured memories. Never met the guy but all who ...

Re: spring cleaning

I did indeed. I was at the Bristol Hippodrome which was filmed. Sadly much of my view was obscured by a cameraman so saw next to nothing of Mr Downes! JD is IMHO a great improvement on BD as a frontman - reminds me of a mid-70's JA visually. I became a bit disillusioned with Yes once Jon & Rick ...

Let's resurrect this thread 10 years on!
Discovered Mr Gilbert's Shaming Of The True a few months ago via the excellent Progzilla podcast (always worth downloading). Great stuff :icon_smil

Oh dear :( That ain't gonna happen for you!

However, plenty of flute (and pipes) in a few of the tracks. I promise I'll get a full review in due course once the album's sunk in.

Re: The Reasoning

If you like The Reasoning, and perhaps more so, Karnataka, then be sure to add "Visionary Position" by Panic Room to your shopping list. Panic Room is the band set up from the ashes of the other half of Karnataka; again prog with female vocals (this time from Anne-Marie Helder). My album of the year...

Re: Stepping Down

Hey Ed, what's the other particular band that you're very into these days? I've become something of a mega Mostly Autumn fan (and not just because of the aesthetic appeal of lead vocalist Heather Findlay ;) ). Not as "proggy" as Yes, but a lot of emotionally charged and powerful music. Well worth i...

Re: Stepping Down

Hey Chris, But these days, the interest I have in them has waned - I haven't found much to celebrate in the way of new Yes music for many years, and to me, if a band isn't putting out new music that I really dig, my interest is only of their past. While the memories are wonderful, memories alone ar...

Re: Best CDs of 2007

Hmm, my visits here are much less frequent than they used to be - clearly a reflection on a lack of Yes activity. But I nearly missed yesireebob's annual "Best of the Year" thread; this would never do! I didn't buy many albums released last year but out of what I did buy, these 6 are all superb: Odi...

Re: Looking for Tiz Hay, Surrey, England.

I've wondered now and again about the wonderful Tiz. I remember having a couple of lengthy phone chats around '89/'90 particularly with reference to pushing ABWH and Rabin's Can't Look Away on my local radio station's playlist. Her enthusiasm was beyond compare -Fluff Freeman namechecked her every t...

Looks like a trip to Frome is on the cards for me too.

Yet to see JB live; only recently discovered him, just after his last UK tour.

Cool! Haven't heard any weeds/boots of the latest tour yet. Saw them of course, but am yet to get hold of the FOABP tour. Silly question, does it come over well?

Re: Mostly Autumn

I became intrigued in 2002 by reading a small ad description of Mostly Autumn as something like "Pink Floyd meets Celtic Folk", so I took the plunge with the then newly released "The Last Bright Light" (which was the band's 3rd album). I've been hooked ever since. The first 2 albums are much in the ...
