Haven't heard Tesla yet. Night Ranger has some fantastic highs but as a body of work isn't a patch on Somewhere In California for me. The Uriah Heep though is absolutely bloody awesome! Incredibly good album.

Yes I think there is only the three on youtube Terry but trust me the entire album is absolutely killer! Rocktopia review here... http://www.rocktopia.co.uk/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=5279:free-spirit-all-the-shades-of-darkened-light&catid=910:cd-reviews&Itemid=121

I actually asked Andrew about Free Spirit by PM on Facebook and he said he'd be reviewing soon. I'm glad it won't get ignored because its ridiculously brilliant.

The singles Living Tattoo and Hysteria are definitely there Terry. Recommend Hysteria but you can't go wrong with anything from the album...my fave track is Silence...

On the Free Spirit album..."the morning took away the dreams of the horsemen on the eastern wind".... It's lyrical content is only one of the reasons why I love it. :-)

I haven't heard Sunstrike yet but an album which I think betters both H.E.A.T. and Brother Firetribe is Free Spirit's All The Shades Of Darkened Light. I still can't believe what I'm hearing after repeated listens - one of the best albums of its type I've heard for years.

Fantastic weekend up in Glasgow (my fave British city), great time meeting up with lots of people who I first knew through this site and some through Firefest. Thought the comment about FM having to finish as they hit their stride was bang on but the audience hadn't really woken up. I absolutely loved Europe - only seen them once before on the Start From The Dark tour and I wasn't into that a

I think James did a little too much "we are going to play as many songs as possible" and not enough working the audience but he was prob trying not to steal Robin's thunder as headliner. Still really enjoyed the set though!

I've got a 20th anniversary edition of this album out on Gypsy Rock Records in 2004, and it has three bonus tracks (two live and one recorded specifically for this release by the original members). Line up is listed as: L A Greene (lead vocals, guitar); Mick Fortune (drums); Bobby Birch (bass, vocals, sax); Roger Scott Craig (keys, vocals); Richard Fortune (guitars, vocals). As has been s

Sorry it was in no way a criticism of the crew and the speed of admission. That bit was poorly worded on my part. "We saw a huge queue right up the street and went back to the pub for another while it died down" would have been more accurate! No offence intended :-)

I will try and do Sat and Sun over the weekend. FRIDAY The Magnificent Because of queuing issues (and it was fab there was such a huge queue) I only got in there for the last three songs. They sounded excellent and the place was ridiculously packed. Holding Onto Your Love was an amazing ending. Eden's Curse Let's get the downside out of the way. The sound wasn't perfect for them, p

Having been to Firefest, I can't stop playing Treat's Coup de Grace. :-)

I feel exhausted even thinking about that performance. I've seldom seen such energy on stage anywhere never mind just at Firefest. There were several better bands for me over the weekend in terms of songs, entertainment and musicianship but in terms of sheer energy, drive and hunger, H.E.A.T. had no equal. It was the first time I'd seen them having contrived to miss previous FFs when they played

Shrewsbury is where I live, Telford is where I work! Telford's honestly not as bad as its reputation but Shrews is definitely the better place to live!

Two brilliant albums. I slightly favour Long Hard Look, just an album I have a huge amount of affection for a host of reasons/happy memories. I never understood why Shadow King divided people so much - what's not to love? The whole album is a stunning vocal performance by Lou, especially Russia. My favourite songs though are Once Upon A Time and the immense Danger In The Dance Of Love. I think

Hi folks, not posted here for a good while... I'm off to see Avantasia in Berlin and Hamburg next week and was just wondering if anyone has seen either of the Pratteln gigs this weekend. I've found the following set on Tobias' forum - just wonder what the correct order is and if its missing anything? Any help will be appreciated. Spectres Invoke The Machine Black Orchid Reach Out F

I've forgotten how much fun it can be. Not really been here for ages but I came back to do some research on Kip Winger's solo stuff because I'm not very familiar about what's good and what isn't. But I've been posting on here and looking at random stuff for a while without going near anything by KW!!!!

I was fortunate last Saturday to see the FM/Vega/Serpentine show. I thought all three bands were utterly fantastic and, while I've not yet got Rockville, I got the new Vega this week and it's a fantastic album. I do like It Bites and I saw them live in December at the same venue as last Saturday's gig (Slade Rooms in Wolves) but I am glad I saw the Serpentine version of the FM tour because it
