Woof!


Thanks for that.
Saw Lizzy's final gig - can't remember if it was Hammy Odeon or headlining the Sunday at Reading Rock Festival in 1983. Went to both ! Also captured on film one of the very rare performances of Lynott's post-Lizzy band Grand Slam at the Marquee Club, Wardour St.
Just looked it up - Reading Festival that year cost £15.95 for the 3 days or £8 just for the Sunday. Those were the days ,

Hehe... that was quite a bargain! :)

I saw them play the Rainbow Theatre (Finsbury Park) back in c78. That was supposedly their 2nd last night live ever. I recall they brought on all of their previous guitarists (3 or 4 of them, all at once) to do a 'power-cameo' of one of the hits. The crowd dutifully went nuts. It was a hell of a gig!

Purcell - Birthday Ode for Queen Mary II (Z.323): I-V
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VascZQwlp_I

'Come all ye sons of art'



Totally OTT baroque fugues. Blows Vivaldi out of the water.


p.s.
The thing that always amazes me.... is how very little music evolved over the course of c400 years.

Totally joyous music!

'Summer Is A Coming In'
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVGThdzWn8I


A lovely piece of 'Early music' from c1250 (so about three or four times older than America, or 15* Singapore then hehehe... )

'Purcell: Come, Ye Sons of Art Away (King's College Choir, Cambridge)'
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFJAtIR3KCw

Haut-baroque. This one a mere c300 years old.

Nice way to start the day. Agree, Baroque goes so much further than Vivaldi.

I'm more partial to Corelli and Telemann.

This starts at what got me hooked, but the whole concerto should be heard start to finish, this is not the best version of it, but time to get out of the house....

They did that quite a few times. At the final Hammersmith Odeon gig they rolled out Eric Bell, Brain Robertson and Gary Moore to play individual tracks and then all together for the finale - The Rocker. Eric Bell was on Whiskey in the Jar, Robertson on Emerald and Gary Moore on Black Rose from memory. I think some of the performances were on the final live album - "Life".

Great live band - sorely missed. Did see them a few times post-Lynott but it was not quite the same.

Sentenced - melodic death metal band from Finland, they broke up in 2005 in what was a hugely emotional concert for many including myself and this was the last song of the gig.
The ending solo is something thats so incredibly sad yet so beautiful.
I've never had any song that's been able to move me as much as this one.

tl;dr

great song just skip to the solo @ 3:31

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l4-BXGot5ek

the guitarist who wrote that solo died shortly after the band broke up
RIP Miika Tenkula...

Something for JR - there's a podcast I listen to, Progzilla, they do a monthly 3+ hour show featuring mostly new and some old, I see the March episode has Focus.

I get mine through iTunes.

Oh thanks for that I never knew! It seems most unusual as so many rock bands seem to change line-up on negative terms (drugs, death, legal action etc).

Yeah, they put on a hell of a show. There's no doubting that!

Enjoying a great deal. Will give them a 2nd or 3rd run-through before I start the 'upstream' question of why I like it.

Ta very much and TTYL.
