  1. I liked it. It's not hugely original but of it's type it's done well. I listened yesterday and it was enough to get me back listening to it again today so it's a 'Satin' for me.

    Flickr Taken Over By Smugmug

    I hope so too. I love Flickr. Despite it's foibles it is a wonderful resource to share and view photographs from around the world and I've discovered many great photographers - and formed friendships with people in my locality and further afield.

    Nothing Compares 2 U

    His output was so prolific maintaining quality was a problem. He has made some fantastic albums, Sign ‘O The Times, Diamonds and Pearls but my favourite is Emancipation which is a 3 disc set covering all sorts of genres. He isn’t one of my favourites but there are individual tracks that just ooze brilliance. Have to say he is definitely amongst the very best live performers ever. Was fortunate to see him twice and blown way both times, great singer, dancer and multi-instrumentalist - his guitar playing was fabulous. As for the track, I like both versions but the best one is still Sinead’s.

    Blu-Spec CD2. Who Knew?

    That Wiki indicates that these discs play on standard CD players Pete Would be interested in your take on a comparison with the HD Tracks download - Have you not got the standard cd release too

    Blu-Spec CD2. Who Knew?

    Thanks for the heads up - hadn’t seen this. I’ve ordered it from Switzerland through an Amazon link for just over £15 delivered. Seem to recall that Blu CD was widely regarded as ‘foo’ - nevertheless I’m always happy to hear Jackson live and as you say his recordings are often top notch - The album with Lindsey is my very favourite live recording, it’s superb.

    Random image of the day 3

    The 'secret' access tunnel under Roker Pier, soon to be open to the public for tours. We spent the day trying to understand why sand is being deposited on the floor every day and sections are under 4 inches of salt water . Clearly the victorian plumbing is failing somewhere following this winters wild weather, hopefully it won't be too much of a problem to sort out.

    What are you listening to right now?

    I've had this since it's release and really like it - I've a 12" Vinyl single of You've Been around somewhere, must dig it out. Now playing -
  10. Great session player, plays with Don Airey Band and guested with many top acts. Tours with his own trio and his bass player Dave Marks is brilliant. Will he become a legend ? Probably not but he’s great
