El Corte Inglés! Wow!! I remember their massive store in Las Palmas, and in the mid 90s actually found a few CDs to add (to my then quite small) collection. But just around the corner (well, about a kilometre away!) was a little CD store called COMPACT MUSIC where I bought a load of stuff and this was where I discovered Now & Then!! I'd love to know if this place still survives!!

Hmmm.... Well (according to Wiki....) there have been 17 'past' members (if one goes back to their inception in 1958!!!!) Drummer Garry Peterson remains from the quartet that recorded 'American Woman' (the others were Burton Cummings, Randy Bachmann and Jim Kale). Kale only recently retired from live gigging and his replacement is someone known to many here at MRR - Rudy Sarzo. I haven't li

I think that MIKE might have nailed it with his selection of Melodica's 'Long Way From Home'. One of the worst purchases I have made in ANY genre!! Paul :-(

A great band and a super album! I have the original and the 2015 version! I might add that their last two albums ('Unbroken' and 'Cemetary Junction') are both superb too!!! Sadly, however, none of these dates fit with my upcoming plans!!! Such a shame.... Paul

Bloody hell - that's great!! Good to hear FJ in rocking mode again and JVL's shredding here is simply wonderful, I think! Paul :-)

Impressed by how well Tommy Shaw's voice has held up over the years. I very much enjoyed this.

No Doug, I don't....and I speak as someone who is just a few months shy of 70 myself! I still push myself to do the very best I can in the varuious fields in which I operate. The only thing from which I have retired is anything to do with "deadlines". Paul :-)

The tracks 'Fault Line' and 'Blue' are the bonus tracks on the "deluxe" edition, T. Paul

Yes, he is a master craftsman, and that's why I expected more. I have all of the ELO albums and everything Jeff did before that going back to The Idle Race (remember them??) I just felt short changed and in order to get an album approaching 40 minutes one had to buy the special edition. Grrrr Paul :-(

Personally, I like all eras of the band - and I do think that the latest is an excellent addition to the discography from the band. As someone else has said lower down, Frank Bornemann's voice is something of an acquired taste, so go and sample first! Paul :-)

It sold very well...but for me it is (a) safe and lacking in ambition (b) dull (c) poor value for money - far too short, given that JL had plenty of time since the previous release to produce more than he managed to present here. Just my opinion, of course, but I was (and still am) severely under impressed! Paul

Yes!! Their latest - 'The Vision, The Sword And The Pyre (Part 1)' is magnificent and seems to have become a gargantuan undertaking for now 73 year old Frank Bornemann, and almost one that didn't see the light of day, it would seem. The album is a slow burner and I reckon the story of Jeanne D'Arc has proved to be quite a challenging one to put into a musical setting, appearing some 8 years

Sorry, but I fail to understand all the hyperventilating that goes on in connection with Steve Perry. I will let my ears make up their mind once the album is available. Paul

Takes me back to Yanks and then Powercuts (as it became) in Manchester, north west England in the second half of the 1990s. I'm sure there will be some here who will also remember those times, and leaving with bags of cut outs to discover. Plenty of crap, of course, but oh, the gems, the gems...!! It's so good you are making discoveries Mike. Even now, I enjoy discovering new bands (albeit

V-E-R-Y Interesting range of comments! I have all of their albums and don't necessarily quite agree with what others have written! My comments (previously posted at rockreport.be) are as follows:- 'This is a shark of a record. Give it a chance, and it will rip your leg off! So, instead step inside this monster of a rock 'n' roll album, full of grit and venom and lyrically one that never

Absolutely agree, Mike! Great singalong melodic rock & roll and including what may well be one of my songs of the year: "Breaking The Silence". Paul :-)

I have a wide range of albums from both the Fish and Hogarth eras. The advice provided by others is sound: 'Misplaced Childhood', 'Holidays In Eden' and 'Brave' probably standing out for me. Paul :-)

Regarding Amazon, I feel your pain. But being a Prime customer here in the UK, I really go for them and so far have had four extensions of my Prime membership on each of the four occasions they have failed to deliver as promised. Well, it's the only way with a giant conglomerate like Amazon. It really doesn't hurt them and it makes me feel a little better! Indeed, last time I got a £5 voucher

As was said in the initial post, Ten is regarded on this forum as a "marmite band". Some adore the band's output while others dislike them with a passion. I'm with Addyeddy in really liking Gary Hughes' voice and with Idiosyncrasy in reflecting positively upon "the intelligent lyrics, quality music and layered production". There's no accounting for taste and we all ha
