Pete S.: into the void(((standing on the ledge)..............on the ledge?
David: So we're expecting a few CD's in the next week or so - HTP Live, Alchemist and the "Best Of" (although nothing new on that one...)...
Shirean: via Roberto http://www.legends-of-rock.com/
Pete S.: is this a link?
David: should keep us busy 'til October!!
David: yes that link works - although there's not much to it right now...
Pete S.: yes a good follow up after the gig
Pete S.: thanks shirean
Shirean: Looks like they are still working on it
Pete S.: that'll be great....have to save up!!!!
David: Don't know who booked that tour....but talk about a zig-zag schedule - they're going up and down the country almost daily!!
Pete S.: hey guys ...i thought on the....ledge was the key track on htp.....so live?
David: I should think so....I think it would be a mistake not to play almost the whole album, especially for the UK shows....
David: My current fave is "Ride The Storm"....but it changes on each listen [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]
Pete S.: yes indeed .....but the purple tracks may dominate etc
David: Glenn is superb with his gritty hard rock vocals....love it!
Pete S.: run run run
David: it would suck if it's dominated with Purple songs....one maybe, but not 3 or 4....
Pete S.: yep i've seen jlt in a different light after this album
David: that's just my opinion however [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]
Pete S.: yes i agree david
David: JLT is actually very good live and can pull all the stops out....we were pleasant surprised by that when we saw VCR earlier in the year....
David: and you have to be pretty good to keep up with Glenn who is so vocally domineering onstage...
Pete S.: with rainbow...i prefered dio then it was bonnett....
Pete S.: it got more commercial...
David: Yeah, I liked Dio with Rainbow, then Sabbath and his first solo record...after that I lost interest....
Pete S.: yeah.....H Hell was the best sabbath album.......but a lot of ozzy people argue that
Pete S.: in my opinion anyway
David: I don't look at it as a "Sabbath" album but just good music....
Pete S.: yes david after the fisrt dio album...it started to get "polished
Pete S.: mind you ...glenn's sabb. was really good and probabally underrated
Pete S.: a bit like stormbringer....takes time too sink in!!!!
David: yeah, I never accepted that as a Sabbath album...but just a great piece of music....I only bought it at the time 'cuz Glenn was on it.....
David: it had been a little while at the time since he'd been on a whole album....so was anxiously awaiting that release...
Pete S.: yeah i rember now....it was an age
Pete S.: what is the phenominar stuff like.....good line up
Pete S.: sorry about spelling!!!
Shirean: Its great stuff
Pete S.: what type....rock, funky......did it sound dated?
Shirean: no I don't think its sounds dated
Pete S.: hey that's good,i'm pretty new to that stuff....will there be any on the jukebox soon?
Shirean: I'll see that something is added to the Jukebox next month - just for ya :-)
Pete S.: nice one....tanx shirean
