Re: The "Covers" Thread

It was a workmanlike cover of 'Hey Bulldog'.

A better interpretation of a Beatles song was Joe Cocker 'With A Little Help From My Friends':

Re: MrMagpie's Music Book Reviews

Look forward to it, you have reviewed some good music, much of which was influential on Blur no doubt.

Re: Underrated Music

And The Style Council... better than The Jam or Weller solo. Paul Weller probably at his most potent during late-Jam, early-Style Council. He went into a lull in the later 80s, as did so much music. Simple Minds suffered at this time as well. As 101reykjavik said, I think their earlier work was bet...

Re: MrMagpie's Music Book Reviews

It looks a good book, Mr Magpie, as does 'Jimi Hendrix - Setting The Record Straight'.

Being written in the 1990s theoretically dates them a bit, but as you say important people now sadly deceased were interviewed. They gave first-hand accounts, which couldn't happen now.

Re: Duran Duran Thread

Did good work for several years in 80s-90s. In fact, Blur might have killed them off :o ;)

Fave tracks include 'My Own Way', 'The Chauffeur', 'Is There Something I Should Know' and later 'Ordinary World'.

Re: Underrated Music

KLL76 - I quite like 'On The Road Again'. It was very much of its time, and as such could reach the top ten at that time. Terry Wogan mentioned about it "not being X-Factor suited" when he played it near the end of his Radio 2 daily run in 2009. He will have played it on daytime Radio 1 in 1968. :) ...

Agree about Prince (overall). But he was prominent in a time when music was synthetic anyway.

Bit harsh on the Stones, Led Zep & Radiohead.

Don't know Arcade Fire enough to judge.

Re: The Kinks Thread

KLL76 - yes agree that VGPS was a great album. Much overlooked originally because it was backward-looking, in the brave new world of 1968.

Yet it was only highlighting the things that were changing.

Re: Queen Thread

Live Aid changed so many things, and not just awareness of famine.

But that's another story.
