For some reason, right now I’m on a bit of an After The Fire kick... Been listening through their “Complete CBS Recordings” double album (all three 70s/80s albums plus Der Kommisar and bonus tracks).

Sort of in between Jazz and Bach, like a Jach piece.

 

His Loussier plays Bach albums are just fabulous!

Haven't heard that for decades. For some reason if you'd asked me who it was by I would have said the Sweet! I only remembered the 'lazer blazer love' bit.

Art of Fighting - Runaways - small label band you probably don't know - don't let the stupidly inappropriate name put you off - it's sweetly sung music for sensitive souls.
This is them live 2019

Destroyer are another great (basically one man) band with an off-putting name - that are also worth checking out.

Currently watching a live acoustic set by Sonya and Glen from Echobelly on Facebook. This sort of live set is perhaps one of the very small consolations to come out of all this.

In particular the fantastically raw guitar solo in "It must have been years"

I'm not a fan of guitar solos in music, but I love the guitar work on Tubeway Army records, Numan himself is credited as being the guitarist on their output, I don't think (despite having listened to them for decades) that he was the guitarist!

Very appropriate at the moment

He played guitar on the first album, and on the 1st single - all of which were very guitar based... I even bought That's Too Bad/Oh Didn't I Say for the riffage!

Yeh, he was the guitarist - the synth thing was an accident, it wasn't even his, just something in the studio

Bit of an old Proggie classic from Magna Carta - Lord of the Ages

From the Wondrous Stories Prog Collection 4 CD album

Nice find! Thought I owned a Magna Carta CD. Turned out to be Magna Canta (Gregorian chants). But I did notice the double CD next to it...three albums by Mahogany Rush! Been decades since I've listened to it. Time for a relisten!

I bought Mahogany Rush What's Next album. Was totally stunned by how great it was. Frank Marino was a under-rated in my opinion. A bit of a baw-heid but was his idol Hendrix not the same. ?

I have their first three on that double CD: Maxoom, Child of the Novelty, and Strange Universe. I saw them live in a small west suburban Chicago club around '78 or '79. Fantastic show! You're right about Marino. He was excellent! And Paul Harwood was a fine bass player!

EDIT: I just built a 141-song Mahogany Rush playlist on Amazon Unlimited. Gotta love it!
