what tunes are you listening to?

Wow! Fleetwood Mac AND The Pretenders!? No wonder you had a good night. Am off to Wembley with a brother to see The Who with an orchestra next month. I know all these bands are doing the classical vibe thing but The Who are maybe the ones who could really carry it off. We shall see.

Superman soundtracks from the live-action movies starring the late great Christopher Reeve (I'll get to the movies themselves shortly).

A recently released new version of the Freddie Mercury solo classic "Time" (written by Dave Clark and featuring Mike Moran on piano) - you can listen to it here: https://www.youtu...Gjt291COa0

Speak and Spell, Depeche Mode

Genesis Live in Zurich 1977 (which took place 42 years ago today), one of their last gigs with guitarist Steve Hackett (he would leave the band in October, when the live album Seconds Out was being mixed - as a consequence of this "betrayal", founding member and keyboardist Tony Banks had Hackett's guitar parts reduced in the final mix and/or cut out entirely).

Aren't they releasing a remaster of Seconds Out? Will they make it back into the mix if so?

I don't know. Right now it's their 1987 Wembley Stadium on my PC Smile (the complete show recorded from a radio broadcast - the official release is missing the In the Cage Medley).

Well ! How can they miss out In the Cage medley? They must think we are fed up of it! No chance!

From what I understand, it was mainly due to a technical limitation with the cameras - the show was filmed using an experimental HD videotape format (Sony HDVC, to be precise), which meant that each tape could only store about half an hour's worth of audio and video, and changing these tapes was not a 10-second job. Now, why the ITC Medley wasn't filmed, well, two theories emerge:

1. The band opted to sacrifice the medley in order to minimise tape changes, seeing that the medley had already been filmed for the previous tour videos (The Mama Tour, 3 Sides Live).

2. The cameramen chose to cut out the medley of their own volition without telling the band beforehand.

Thankfully, the audio to the In the Cage Medley was recorded, both in multitrack form (from the band's soundboard) and as a stereo mix from the BBC Radio 1 broadcast (which is what I have), so while we cannot see its performance, we can at least listen to it. The medley is performed after The Brazilian and before Land of Confusion (there's a sudden jump cut on the video - the scene becomes immediately dimmer and the light show takes centre stage).

You know your stuff and after what happened to past tapes of Sheryl Crow et al we should be grateful ITC exists for this gig at all.

Jeremy Soule, the composer who wrote the music for the game Elder Scrolls: Skyrim as well as the music for a bunch of Star Wars stuff I think, has an album of his own stuff now apparently, released last year. I'm checking it now.

https://www.youtu...&hf=18

This guy is up there with the dude who did the music for Game Of Thrones which no matter how terribly it was helmed and ended, had outstanding music.

Hope you like it. It's mostly atmospheric music, scores he's done so this is the sort of music it would be great to play a video game to because that's the type of music he's made. It could be knocked with the claim it's New Age music but it's really not. It has a bit of a chamber music feel to it but it's really well done I think.

Genesis Live over Europe, a live album recorded during their 2007 reunion tour from various venues (most tracks were recorded at either Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester or the Circus Maximus in Rome, which was a free concert).

Love Sheryl Crow but I have not often watched her perform, more of a listening experience. Never thought of that before. I may go and hunt out some vids now. Will it be a different experience?
