105 The Who, part 2

A slightly smaller audience than usual, on Armistice Day, which may have been one reason for it.  We covered the two albums that The Who produced after Keith Moons death, and the recent comeback album.  But most of the show was about solo work from the three, dominated, inevitably, by Pete Townshend.

A couple of late additions to the postshow were the Stephen Stills/Manassas version, the original version of How Far, to contrast it with the Roger Daltrey cover we had in the show, and a gratuitous play of Gordon Lightfoot’s Endless Wire right at the end of the postshow.

Show 105: The Who, part 2

This Sunday, 11th November, will see the second part of our Who wanderings.  This will include the post-Moon Who and solo work by Townshend, Entwistle and Daltrey, along with some tracks where one or the other guested, either playing or as producer.  We will also revisit Lifehouse, in the form it was eventually released in, a 6-CD boxed set sold by Townshend at gigs and from his website.

See you there.

Doobie-doobie Who 🙂

104 The Who, part 1

Our first show dedicated to The Who, an iconic English band that we have not featured before – I can’t think why.

We focussed on the Keith Moon years, when the founding members of the group were all together.  There is so much good music from this period of the group’s life that choosing a 2 hour set was pretty difficult.  I chose to emphasise the role that Lifehouse, the unrealised followup to Tommy, played in the success of the group, and played tracks released on later albums and singles in the order they would have appeared.  Researching the Lifehouse concept and the plot that was to be played out brought new light, for me, on the lyrics in the many ex-Lifehouse songs that were to feature so brilliantly in later albums and singles.

103 Cream

For this show, Hugh drew on his extensive knowledge and stash of Cream recordings and produced a wonderful show bringing us the best of the group and its history.

The preshow consisted of a couple of post-Cream groups, Blind Faith and BBM – Bruce Baker Moore, with Gary Moore filling the guitar shoes.

Cream!

On Sunday, October 14th, we will present Cream–arguably the first Supergroup in Rock history, and one of the most potent power trios of all time. And yes, as Supergroups go, the Million Dollar Quartet was earlier. But their sessions were only released decades later, and they never officially were a band.

See you in the Cavern,

102 Bill Bruford part 2

Part 2 of the Bruford show saw us concentrating on his later and more jazzy, not to say experimental, work.  That was seasoned with several tracks from he earlier work as a guest musician or session man on albums lead by other people.  Something for everyone.

Myst 25th Anniversary: Myst Memories

To start off the weekend of Myst’s 25th Anniversary celebrations, I did a show on my own, as neither Mal nor Ed was able to host.  As I was the first one to start, I was able to fit in a long-ish preshow too 🙂

The Myst memories included the start of my involvement with computer gaming, which was Adventure, later known as Colossal Cave, on a Data General Nova.   Several tracks were also from the year of Myst’s first release, 1993.
