What I have from that year is:

Genesis - Three Sides Live
Steve Hackett - Highly Strung
Anthony Phillips & Enrique Berro Garcia - Private Parts & Pieces III: Antiques
Mike Rutherford - Acting Very Strange
Steve Winwood - Talking Back to the Night
various (incl. Steve Winwood) - They Call It An Accident (soundtrack)

Nothing against the Genesis & Phillips albums in particular, but... I wouldn't consider this a major year for music.

My copy doesn't have any words on it, just the weird picture of the pig ear under water.


Why do you think that's a pig ear? huh

You summed it up perfectly Dust. The only difference is it only took a minute or two to read your post, as opposed to the couple hours of my life I'll never get back after watching a few episodes! sad

I first saw him in this 1991 movie 'Let him have it', highly recommend if you ever come across it. The link below is the trailer.

Thanks guys.

I must admit, by sequencer I really meant arpeggiator. Hand meet face! grin I'm a two finger pianist, index finger of each hand really.

I'm still hearing mellotron Phil though, a la Steve's Icarus Ascending. In fairness, possibly my imagination, I think Phil's also singing over the top of the block backing vocals. Throw in some swirling Hammond and its easy to get all muxed ip.

The IT tour was my favourite also - mainly because it was the only time I ever got to see them live. The person in front of me wasn't too enamoured when I joined in the famous double drum lick on his shoulders though. grin


Icarus Ascending uses NECAM as far as I remember which was a computer mixing system

1977 – Neve installs the world's first moving fader automation system, Necam (Neve Computer Assisted Mixdown) at London's Air Studios.


From Wiki

"The Voice of Necam". This track also features references to the "Please Don't Touch" theme at the beginning, but in the middle it becomes more of an ambient piece featuring a computer called Necam. The last 1:20 of the track is a classical guitar piece backed by the aforementioned computerised chords.

Vocals are by "Feydor" which may indeed be a pun on Fader...

Best wishes

John

Dust you are too funny.

But wait. Christopher Eccleston is in The Leftovers?

He's one of my favourite actors.

Yes, and he's probably the best character on the show.

Our 20 year old son, Tom shares my love of cinema and bought tickets for us to see Boyhood, for my birthday present. We saw it last night and it's one of the finest films that I've ever seen; a glorious, emotional, life-affirming film.

At almost two and three quarter hours, some might consider it too long...the opposite was true; we were engrossed and the director's skill and the great acting made you care for not only the boy, who is filmed over 12 years, as he grows to be an adult, but his mother, father and sister too.

This film should receive countless awards and be seen by large audiences; unfortunately, there were less than 20 in the audience sad


Hopefully that small audience number will improve when word gets out. I'll let you know how I like it after the weekend.
