Haha. To me they are. Aside from Born To Run, Hungry Heart was his first commercial "hit" and was really put on the album to get a single out there for some AirPlay. Maybe not technically "filler" but it had a different purpose for being on the album than the rest of it. Crush is quirky, and I was always surprised it made it onto the album instead of other songs recorded in those session like Roulette and or I Wana Be With You. Not coincidently Bruce hardly ever played it live after maybe the first tour.

Different strokes but the two you mentioned are two of my all time favorite "slower" Bruce tunes. The lyrics and melodies are just beautiful IMO, and Clarence's sax work on DAN will always have a special place in my heart. Plus, who wouldn't drive all night just to buy her some shoes and taste her tender charms? wink

Hungry Heart got a lot of airplay in the UK but it wasn’t a big hit here although it raised awareness of him, at least amongst schoolgirls, the only demographic I can speak for! laugh . Thanks to a schoolfriend who went on about Bruce incessantly, & Capital Radio who bombarded us with his tracks, I caved in & bought The River. It stood out because nearly all the tracks on it were great, from the short rockers to Independence Day, my all time favourite “slower” Bruce tune by a mile. Whereas Born to Run, his 2nd best album (I bought them all soon after getting The River), was a real half & half LP, with 4 outstanding tracks & 4 I wasn’t keen on.

The Jewel is a classic and absolutely worth getting. It is in a similar mood as many prog rock albums, that were released around that time such as The Sentinel by Pallas or The Wake by IQ. Kowtow is a collection of shorter songs, which are not typical for Pendragon, the way you know them. I like it, but if I were you, I would get The Jewel first.

All seems to have went quiet in the world of Tony Banks.
I was wondering if there is any news on the release of the remaining remix albums? - Soundtracks, Bankstatement, Still and Strictly Inc.

What a great way to describe the musical journey with a great band as it evolved. Fits my experience with Genesis and their music perfectly. Nicely written.

I just love how they were able to evolve their music but never to a point where they became completely different. They didn't sacrifice what made them great, they applied their talent to a fresh set of genres. The spirit that blossomed at the beginning remained until the very end. Many say that during the 80s they could have been any pop group, but I strongly disagree. When I hear songs like Keep It Dark, Mama and Land Of Confusion, I can still detect a sense of early Genesis. Though those songs are radio-friendly, they still bring to mind ghosts, mysteries, weirdness and hidden evil. Those themes are not present in the majority of 80s pop and rock.

I think I've made this same analogy in the past, but this is how I see the band. Genesis is like a magical train journey; there are differences in their music along the track, and a station in the middle, but it's the same train throughout, and the captivating magic conjured during the start of the journey strengthens the remainder of it, leaving a wide range of rewarding surprises to uncover in the latter days. Those that start at the other end of the track are at first enthralled by the joyful music of latter days Genesis, and the train will send them backwards to the realms wherein this magic was first crafted. Either way you travel, it's an unforgettable ride. Get off at the station, and you'll miss half of it.

A couple off the top of my head:
Sowing The Seeds Of Love by Tears For Fears
Private Universe by Crowded House though this sounds more like a Gabriel song...

I love the album myself. I've said before, Pendragon are one of the very few bands who have never disappointed me with any release. I love their earlier stuff, even Kowtow, though that's probably my least favourite of theirs. I love the way they re-invented themselves with Believe, yet still managed to sound like Pendragon, and I love MWCM, probably because it does hark back somewhat to their earlier work.
Nick Barrett is so underrrated as a songwriter. We all know his phenomenal ability on guitar - he's in my top three players - but his songwriting skills are right up there with the best prog writers. Ok, he may not have the best singing voice in the world, but he's instantly recognisable. Also, having Clive Nolan in the band is a big plus. A superb musician and songwriter in his own right, to have two such amazing musicians in one band is fantastic. (All imo of course wink )

Are The Jewel and Kowtow worth getting? They are the only two Pendragon albums I don't have.

Those are fillers? Surely not!
I’m not keen on Drive All Night & Wreck on the Highway myself but I wouldn’t call them filler.

Unfortunately I can’t go to the Manchester concert sad

Actually, incorrect. Queen are highly immune to this. They made me so many beloved hits that they've never been reduced to one or even a few songs. Apart from the ones you mentioned, popular Queen songs still frequently played on the radio include:

We Will Rock You
We Are The Champions
I Want To Break Free
Killer Queen
Don't Stop Me Now
Somebody To Love
Bicycle Race
You're My Best Friend
The Seven Seas Of Rhye
Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy
Crazy Little Thing Called Love
The Invisible Man
Radio Ga Ga
A Kind Of Magic
I Want It All
One Vision
The Show Must Go On


Some of those do get played sometimes, yes, but never as much in my neck of the woods as the three I mentioned already.... rolleyes
