Those are really cool, thanks for sharing. I like the cover even more knowing that the shadow is legitimate and not created through digital trickery.

I enjoyed R-Kive, but I thought disc 3 generally suffered a bit.

It seems that someone must have told them, "Choose two that are your best and one that you think is unfairly overlooked."

The tracks I enjoyed least were the Tony Banks tracks. I am reminded why I stopped following his career. He has horrible taste in vocalists and I wish he would just sing everything himself, as he is much better at it than the people he chooses for his solo albums. I stopped following him around the time of "Soundtracks," but I have all of his albums on vinyl up to that point. I will probably get around to digitizing them at some point. His classical track was much better, but I don't feel compelled to buy the album (much in the same way I will probably never buy Paul McCartney's classical albums).

The Mike Rutherford stuff is enjoyable. I also stopped following his career in the late 80s but have all of his early work on vinyl or cassette. I recently bought Smallcreep's Day on CD (I have it on cassette as well), which I consider his best album. The Mike + The Mechanics stuff is nice but it's like candy, there is no real substance. I might pick up a "best of" CD at some point just so I can have those songs that used to be played on the radio. I will probably digitize my old Mike records as well.

The R-Kive compilation was very good overall, especially the first disc and most of the second.

I enjoyed hearing the original mixes of Abacab and the songs from Genesis and Invisible Touch. I will have to compare their sound later this week to the 1999 version of Turn It On Again - The Hits.


Regarding this, I see what you mean, but if Phil thinks Easy Lover is one of his best I must disagree very strongly with him. Of course he chose IATA & Wake Up Call which is from his own favourite of his albums (apart from FV). But Easy Lover?

R Kive helped me a lot, as the Banks & Hackett tracks were the first by them I had ever heard, and I like them all a great deal.

No, never have been. I find it cheesy & repetitive. I can only say that I've tried to be more positive about it when listening to it these days.
