Trance is life. Unfortunately most of my friends think I'm strange for loving trance.

Two great choices, but have you heard this version of Personal Jesus by Johnny Cash?

 

 

and this version of Hurt?

 

 

Very poignant when you consider his wife who appears in the video died not too long afterwards and that the house burned down during renovation.

Yes I know those well, firm favourites here!  I like his version of the U2 song One also.

I'm working my way through Hey Joe by Jimi Hendrix along with all the twiddly bits.

 

You realise his genius when you try to copy it.

So much good music around and still is, (and a lot boring too thought) I've been a happy member of Spotify since 2009 and it's happily feeding me with all my lovely oldies in a never ending stream, while my vinyls enjoys their retirement on the shelf. All those great old albums I've rediscovered thanks to Spotify.. Perhaps music didn't stop with the 70's but most of the basis of today's pop/rock music still got it's roots from those years music.

Love those 70's bands and artists as Wishbone Ash, Mountain, Pink Floyd, ELO, Bowie, Big Country, Stranglers, and yeah you get it :)

.... and how could I forget Jethro Tull, Deep Purple and Supertramp

After one of Beardie's posts, I've been having an afternoon of listen to my old LPs.

I've been intending to convert some of them to CD, but I've been having problems with the 'Audacity' program. So I've decided to make a list of the ones I still like, and buy them when I see them for a reasonable price. I can't believe that I liked some of them, but in my defence, it was the stone age and I wasn't yet a responsible adult (still waiting for that to be honest).

 

The ones that didn't make the grade:

Gillan – Glory Road (Gillan was my only foray into 'Heavy Rock' territory)

Gillan – Future Shock (and what a shockingly awful album cover it has)

Landscape – From the Tea Rooms of Mars to the Hell Holes on Uranus (remember Einstein a go go?).

Peter Baumann – Strangers in the Night (I'd be surprised if anyone else has heard of this, even Peter Baumann's mum).

 

The possible future CD's.

Ultravox – Vienna (I'm surprised that I still like that one, but I still prefer the John Foxx days).

Kraftwerk – Computer World

Kraftwerk – The Man Machine

Also, add another Guernsey resident Vince. Eric Coates

 

Dambusters music and Sleepy Lagoon "desert island discs". The latter a lovely piece of keyboard music to play.

I am listening to it. As soon as I read your post it started playing in my head.

I wonder what it would be like to have a brain rather than a jukebox between my ears?

Are you sure about Oxygene 4 by Jean Michel Jarre as I thought that he has only released three albums ? Oxygene was released in 1976, Oxygene 2 in 1997 and Oxygene 3 was released in 2016

From what I can glean, Mick, Oxygene is the name of the albums but also each individual piece 1_6 and the other 7 to 13.

 

Oxygene 4 is the fourth on the first album. I think this is right although I may be putting out disinformation.

 

You probably know this but Maurice Jarre produced the music for Lawrence of Arabia. I viewed the fil when it was released.

They set up a large London Cinema (Leicester Square ???) and had 6 tracks playing in surround sound from every quarter

of the cinema. The music in the desert gave the impression of being there. Incredible.

And on Oxygene 3 the tracks are 14 to 20.
