After calming down from being a rabid fan I will never ever listen to GTH, L&W and FTI ever again.
I feel that way about every album after Dragontown although I may spin Paranormal again but honestly haven't listened to it since I initially bought it and played it once.

Re: Alice Unplugged

I think it could have been an interesting idea if approached differently than what the "Unplugged" series normally did. To hear acoustic B$B/Eighteen or an all acoustic ballad like INC or OWB wouldn't have been exciting. But to do a different music genre like like incorporate a tin-pan alley or old ...

Re: For Veronica's Sake

2nd worst album after ACAS. Horrible hokey bollocks. You could stop at David Foster! I always puzzle at your hatred for this record. I love it, a strong come back record after the weak L&W. For my tastes, not a bad track on the album. 10 strong songs, great album package and I really like the conce...

Re: Live at Glasgow '82 - 2lp RSD 20202

Have to say the album cover is really weak. I'm guessing it is a gatefold which makes me wonder what the inside will be like. I agree with you (shock horror!) If it's NOT a gatefold sleeve with some really cool photos inside I will be very disappointed, as I was with the Texas '73 RSD vinyl sleeve....

Re: Live at Glasgow '82 - 2lp RSD 20202

Great news. It's the one radio broadcast from post original band, that hasn't had a pre-broadcast source circulated. I hope I can snag a copy. Haven't lined up for a RSD since 2014 but I may for this release. It's listed as an RSD only release. So I hope it's taken from pre-broadcast tapes and Schoo...

Re: The Passing Of Erik Scott

Loved his playing on the "blackout" albums and the tours. Big contributor to the sound. Never had any contact with him so I just say to friends, fans and family, I appreciated his playing and is a part of my personal music enjoyment history - thank you Erik Scott

Re: Lou Reed - Rock and Roll Animal

good info on the Budokan record. A bit off topic here but I thought about that whole doctored Live albums and while authenticity is preferred, I love a great seventies live album and if you have to tweak and cut a bit, so be it. I wish the ACG would have done a complete live off the floor School's O...

Re: Lou Reed - Rock and Roll Animal

This is the only Lou Reed album I own. I like it but not enough to get the other set released years later that completes the show - so I guess I don't love it. I'm a big Zappa fan and there seems to be a bit of a divide, you're either with Frank or you're with Lou - I'm with Frank. I know Lou apolog...

Well I would never want to deprive anyone but if it came down to an either or situation - an expanded Trash would only be preferred by me over an expanded ACAS/Dirty Diamonds

Re: Why no expanded TRASH ??

It just seems bizarre, the companies are leaving money on the table, i just cannot fathom the logic. Seems like we will have to wait until alice dies before we are going to get anything (like we did with DIO) A real shame. It's not that much money I guess. The casual fan would not be interested in ...

Re: Space pirates

I had been an Alice fans for many years and was entirely unaware of the existence of these 2 songs. Moved to the big city in '84 and saw the album in a used record shop and got very excited - paid about $12 for it which was a bit much for a used record but totally worth it. I really liked them both ...

How great would it be if he performed the 4 black out albums in full? Bit like Sparks doing all their albums to date one at a time. Those albums are very short but he could do two one night and two the next. Encores, For Britain Only and Look at you over there. You. me and about 500 Alice fans worl...
