Such a loss. Always had a feeling most people didn't realise she wrote (and sang) more of the Mac's big hits than Stevie and Lindsay combined. VERY glad I got to catch the full Rumours line-up when she rejoined!

New Journey sounded promising on first couple of listens, but paled quickly and has disappeared out of rotation remarkably quickly. Scorpions also didn't stick around as long as I'd expected. On the other hand, early in the year releases from Marillion and especially Magnum have had staying power and will likely stay in high rotation into 2023.

Actually looking at it based purely on Spotify streams it does make sense, Africa has 1.3 Billion streams, Huey's top 10 combined don't even reach half that.

So far: Magnum FM The Hollies Sam Fender Marillion Uriah Heep Deep Purple/Blue Oyster Cult Al Stewart To come: Only Porcupine Tree booked so far, but tempted by some others. Rarely book far in advance these days as can't predict where and when I'll be for work.

Would have preferred to have a BOC/CIS line-up but that said am still pumped for the Purps and BOC tonight!

Easily a top 3 Triumph album for me alongside Allied Forces and Just a Game (Surveillance would be next in my rankings, which I appreciate aren't 'normal'). Hooked on You is the only weak cut to these ears.

Seeing Al in a couple of weeks for only the second time, really looking forward to it. One of my (many) favourites, form 1980: Running Man (With Jeff Porcaro on drums) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7FM3VIyxqug

One of my favourite singer/songwriters, he didn't make all that many albums but they are all fantastic to my ears, including the 3 Stealers Wheel albums (the last proper one finished in his lifetime, Another World, is his 'least best' by a fair way though). 1982's Sleepwalking would be a good starting point for folks who hang about on this board.

The two Shorrock reunion albums are okay, but not much more for me. Monsoon has more highlights, but this one's a more consistent listen. Saw more or less this line-up (with Peter Beckett) in 1995 on their 20th anniversary tour and they were great, pity it all fell apart soon after that.

Looking forward to this, loved both the other albums - think might actually prefer the second one overall. And LOVE Richie's voice, though can understand why others might not!

A pity Shadow King didn't get a mention, would have been curious to know if Lou knew anything about Mick (supposedly) getting Atlantic to bury it in order to facilitate the Foreigner reunion.

The debut is immense, but please don't put yourself through Free Form Guitar, it's 7 minutes of noise (and doesn't pretend to be anything else, to be fair!) even few hardcore fans have sat through more than twice a piece. Completely different end of the spectrum, but 17 is basically the perfect 80s pop album, not a weak cut on it (but the horns are largely missing in action).

In the UK streaming accounts for most 'sales' and the veteran bands just don't do anything in terms of streams, hence Journey being at #87 on the overall chart, but #9 on the physical albums sale chart!

Glad it's not just me, very surprised to see so much love for this one. Far and away the worst thing they did in the 80s to these ears. Though Foster's production craps all over the mess that Michael Omartian made of PCs Solitude/Solitaire

Wasn't a live > album guy so never got IV triple lp set. Done. Triples are for wimps, the Carnegie Hall set was a quadruple. ;-) 3 very different lists already, here's a 4th very different one (well, they are a diverse band!) Best of the bunch: CTA, II, VII, XI, 17 Very good (and mostly quite underrated): III, V, VIII, Hot Streets, XIV, 16, 21, Now Mixed, but with some real highlig

I don't get the logic there, sure numbers are lower than they used to be but to be #1 ya still have to sell more than all the other gazillion albums out there, it's hardly meaningless!

Definitely Chase the Dragon. And if you want to investigate modern Magnum (and you absolutely should) Lost on the Road to Eternity is a good one to start with!

With 14 tracks I'm hoping they've done the usual trick of releasing the lamest ones first - and here's hoping that they put more effort into the music than the cover art, holy Hell that musta taken someone all of what, 12 seconds??!

'everyone said that "Back to the Egg" had some great material on it'...really? It's one of the most widely panned albums in history so that kind of surprises me! That said, I do quite like side 1 - Arrow Through Me and Old Siam Sir were both solid singles that should have been bigger hits.

That's exactly what I'd expect a David Paich solo track to sound like - love it!!

One of my favourites, tho I wish Tale of a Man had made the running order (probably in place of Lorraine). The split of lead vocals is also a bit odd, with Bobby only singing lead on one of the first 5 tracks, but that's a minor quibble.

Very excited for this. Paich remains basically my #1 musical hero.

Bad songs? No, none. But I'm not wild about either Smokin' or (to a lesser degree) Rock and Roll Band. If you swapped both of those out for the DLB title track then you'd have the perfect Boston album. But yeah, it's already damn close.
