The new "SYN" album by Steve Nardelli and Moon Safari. Very good! Positive lyrics and EXCELLENT vocal harmonies from the good folks at Moon Safari.
Recommended!
For me lately:
Bill Evans The Sesjun Radio Shows CD (with Toots on Harmonica on several tracks). I LOVE their version of Toots' "Bluesette."
I've been listening to lots of different stuff from all over. Level 42, Incubus, Ghost, Jamiroquai, 311, Chicago, Type O Negative.

Had some great conversations with Phil Gould (original drummer). A very nice bloke, and extremely talented drummer.

Has a lot of time and respect for the late Tony Williams (Gretsch player who used a bright yellow Gretsch USA Custom), which is why I think Phil chose a yellow Tama.

It made me wonder whether Bubba's yellow Gretsch mentioned in GR book, might have been a similar homage. I saw a drum solo of Tony and he had a lot of Bubba chops, maybe they 'fed off' each other??
Outlaws 'Hurry Sundown' randomly played on work radio station the other day. Not a huge fan but back in the day they were a lot of fun. Hold Your Fire again a few times, also checked out a vid of Yes playing four albums live. We saw them a few years back, playing CTTE, GFTO and the Yes album and thought they sounded amazing, new singer and all.
Wow, Chris S. was great! Having played bass all my life, it never occurred to me that I might miss them someday. i guess that's the joys of recording.

Nice amount of ground covered there, Markus! I am a huge Yes fan so I understand what you are saying.

I just got the remixed copies of Steve Hackett's "Please Don't Touch" and "Spectral Mornings". Cannot wait to tuck into them!
Narnia was played a thousand times in my house, just listened to a live version of it. Steve Hackett is on my must see list! Thanks Nung!

Cool!
I saw him in 1979 or 1980 at a small gig. Great show! But I'd sure like to check him out nowadays.
I have been spinning Kompendium's "Beneath the Waves" which is a concept album by Robert Reed with the help of many fine progressive rock players like Steve Hackett, Mel Collins, Gavin Harrison, Jakko J, and Nick Beggs. A phenomenal album with a fascinating theme. If you like Celtic influences this one is for you.

Very. Highly. Recommended.
