The World, not being able merely to offer us a new Jimi Hendrix album next month but, I'm told, for fans of Uncle FRANK there is shortly to be released, a 7CD boxed set of The Roxy Performances. It is not only recorded and reproduced in 24bits 96kHz but is also super high quality ZAPPA & the Motherscat the very peak!!!!

You heard it here first...

Not really no


My fave LP of his, but given my record on here with rock and the shallow superficiality of what I know about the genre, the panel will probably think it was a load of shite and far too commercial.

I'd better stick to soul and leave the rock to them that know about it.. :)

First heard the "Tattoo" album on Alan Freeman's Saturday afternoon show in the mid-seventies. Sleep on a clothes line was the one they usually played and that caused me to investigate Mr Gallagher.

Alan Black, Anne Nightingale, Alan Freeman and Whispering Bob, were my childhood rock DJs. John Peel was too out there for my long haired, teenage period. That'll be why I never progressed beyond T Rex, Bowie, Roxy Music, Steely Dan, The Doobie Bros, The Eagles, ELO, Alice Cooper, Deep Purple and Nazareth. :lol: :lol:

Aha! It's a song not an album. I only knew a couple of RG tracks because we played them in our first band (Laundromat & Messing with the kid). I had a Levi denim shirt like RG's and Strat came eventually but I wasn't interested in his music. Looking backwards I can see what energy and individuality RG had. My loss but I can still listen and appreciate.

Tonight I cued up "Bert Kaempfert And His Orchestra: A Swingin' Safari" on Qobuz. This is such a fun LP and, as has been mentioned previously on this forum, the production quality is absolutely first rate. So much so that I realised that I'd had the Mets not quite toed in enough since I plonked them against the wall all those months ago - toed them in a tad more and boom - the mid range suddenly got a whole lot cleaner and more well-defined.

I know Cressy Snr is a fan of this kind of stuff too so I guess it's not surprising it sounded great on the Mets...

You like Doris Day, that's a start - perhaps. :)
