What Are You Listening To?
Jackson Browne - Running on Empty. Great album and a longtime favourite. It's a case of pick a song - any song (just about). Recorded live in many and varied locations and with David Lindley, Leland Skar, Russ Kunkel, Danny Kortchmar and Craig Doerge plus a few more ... Rosemary Butler and Lindley helping out on vocals here ...

Running on Empty is a classic.

Busy listening to Supertramp - Retrospectacle - a 'best of' compilation. Wonderful memories associated with these tracks. Great band too.

PINK FLOYD  "the dark side of the moon"  vinyl/30th anniversary vinyl/cd  1973:

the band's eighth...
900+ weeks on the US charts...
their signature album and one of the most recognisable album covers ever...
I can take or leave this album...
half the album I don't care for at all...
thought they made better albums (The Wall, Final Cut, Division Bell)...
I guess its like Sgt Pepper in that 'you had to be there' at the time to really grasp it...

I LIKE THIS ALBUM

WORST TRACK: ON THE RUN

tracks:

1....speak to me/breathe ***

Yup – it’s the Dutch prog band’s seventeenth album and was released in January this year. Totally missed it – shocking! 

I haven’t heard a whole lot of their stuff, but am well acquainted with Ton Scherpenzeel (great keys and piano player) due to his contributions to some of Camel’s albums. Andy Latimer plays guitar on the only instrumental track on this album and Scherpenzeel says “We have a great musical and personal click. Andy personifies the word “feeling” for me, and that is what ‘Ripples on the Water’ is all about.”

Lots of symphonic and melodic rock bombast, interspersed with enough quieter passages to save it from becoming unbearable - such a fine line. I’ll need to have another listen – this one was somewhat interrupted, but there were a few tracks that stood out, not least "Ripples on the Water" – think I’d buy the album just for that!

“Falling” - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m9UIBvdwWO0

“To an End” - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xo4S2G1UUMw

… and the pièce de résistance … feeling is exactly right - wonderful player ...

I will be buying this regardless of the rest of the tracks. Lovely stuff. Very Camelish!

^Goodie! 

I quite like their Close to the Fire album - AL plays a bit of lead on "Full Circle", which is an unexpectedly very gung ho Celtic number - nothing like the above.
