I'm the same. I was thinking of going to 2 moderately sized gigs this year, but the prices across the board mean I'm only going to 1 now.

Everyone lost their income stream for from not touring for 2 years due to COVID. I'm not surprised ticket prices have gone through the roof.

Yes, I had one of those copies :-) Good album, and just a pity it was their swansong - with Alan back on drums, you wonder what might have been.

That'd be "Stereotomy" by The Alan Parsons Project (September 1986), and I got it from the 'Chester Compact Disc Centre' LOL (this was when you had to get your CD's from specialist shops before they were stocked in the High Street record chains.

I like it, but a bit laid back when compared to the 70s/80s Project records. Sounds like it could have been on 1993's "Try Anything Once".

Most recent analyses show there is no positive correlation between video game violence and real life.... Royal Society ....also more secular societies (e.g. in Northern Europe) have lower rates of violence than countries where there is a higher percentage of church attendance. https://www.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-1101-zuckerman-violence-secularism-20151101-story.html

It's impossible to get refunds from HRH - they always roll the booking forward to their next show (which will inevitably be moved on to the next year). They're rubbish - I doubt I'll ever get my money back from them. AND they have a strange idea of what constitutes AOR. NEVER had these issues with Firefest, or Rockingham.

One of my favourite Vangelis albums was "Direct" from 1988, which was more mainstream than some of his experimental albums (like "Beauborg", which left me a bit non-plussed!) Here's "Will of the Wind" from "Direct"..... Will Of The Wind

End of an era. From discovering Vangelis via 'Heaven & Hell' and 'Alpha' from Carl Sagan's TV series, "Cosmos", I moved on to his solo albums, then the wonderful soundtracks like "Blade Runner" and "The Bounty", and then to the amazing Jon & Vangelis albums, where Jon Anderson's vocals and the synths of Vangelis were just a perfect combination.

OK, here's an unusual one. Right now, I'm trying to learn Spanish, and I've been told that to really get to grips with understanding a language is to immerse yourself in it, and a good way of doing that is to listen to music or watch Youtube programmes in the native language. That got me thinking - I don't really want to wade through hours of Spanish folk songs, but melodic rock is/was fair

I was waiting for something to appear from High South for a while now - very quiet since COVID. "All We Need" was what introduced me to the band, which I loved, although very "America" sounding, which I thought might be true of the "Peace Love & Harmony" album, but that wasn't the case - I thought it was quite varied. Wish they'd play the UK - we get very l

Yes, but the last album lost a lot of what made Magic Dance so good in the first place. I'm glad he's had a bit of a reset.

Yeah, "This Side of Paradise" was really good. Great atmosphere to that album, and gave him his hit, "Emotion in Motion".

Soon after Aphrodite's Child split, Vangelis released his first solo album, "Earth" (1973). A lot different to his later albums, and there's one track I really like on it, "My Face in the Rain", which was sang by F.R.David (who later had a hit in the 80's with "Words - Don't Come Easy"). "My Face in the Rain" was also covered later in the 70's by Demis R

Yes, I think it must be over 23 years here for me now. It's amazing the discoveries I've made thanks to Andrew. How little I knew in 1998!

That's right. I remember going to the States for the first time on holiday in 1987, and wandering into a record shop expecting to find CD's, I was instead confronted by rows of tall oblong boxes.....baffling!

I really didn't like "Goliath" after the first series, so can't recommend that. "Bosch" definitely, and for great writing I'd go for "The Marvelous Mrs Maisel" (about a housewife who wants to become a stand-up comic in the early 60s) and "This Is Us" (which I didn't think would be my kind of thing, but I got hooked after the first episode - the interweav

"Beat the Drum" (1999) by Pallas is the only album I have of theirs Steve, but I like it. Melodic and melancholic is how I'd describe it.

Pendragon are on a UK tour in April... Pendragon UK tour dates I might go and see them in Exeter - not much else comes here. I did see them at the Whitchurch Prog Festival (when that was a thing back in the 90s), and picked up a couple of their mid-90s albums which I liked ('The Masquerade Overture', and 'The Window of Life'). I believe they're quite a different band now - more prog metal.
