Blue

As in sky, primarily. Weather is wonderful, a golden Autumn day of clear skies and warmish sunshine. I walked this morning halfway up the Hasenberg, then decided not to go to Heslach and walked back into town for a cappuccino at the Espresso-Laden instead.

Today's Friday Favourite is yet another acoustic blues-ish song, from a recently reissued album celebrating its thirtieth birthday. (A word of warning, by the way: do not buy the album on the strength of this song: the rest is very different, harsh, raw and discordant. 1977 indeed.) Drink up, dreamers; enjoy.

Most excellent post title! ;)

Now, I was very wary of the song - as one is wont to bcs we get along brilliantly but NOT bcs w share the same musical taste, yes? - and then I saw Peter Gabriel and well, Sledgehammer still haunts my nightmares, I want to hurt the man it's such a vile song - but I a loving this one, it's fab! There's hope!

Smooches!

Spoken prematurely:

"The jaded underworld was riding high
Waves of steel hurled metal at the sky"

"Lord, here comes the flood
Well say goodbye to flesh and blood
If again the seas are silent
In any still alive"

This killed m a bit. But don't feel bad, I have a folder for Uzi songs, and this one will go straight into it. I very rarely listen to them of course, but it does make me feel better to have them there. October around the corner, and December as well. I migth as well be ready.

Lioness: it's a typical Gabriel song of that period, the mood can swing tremendously. I don't listen to this album often, I like it more than I enjoy it :-) Hope you weren't too upset.

Philip: thank you. Enjoy the weekend.

Why does your album pointer go to Robert Fripp? Was he the writer? I see it listed on disc 1.

Thanks, you do point to some interesting music (but usually when I go to get them they have expired, I'll have to be quicker)

Gabriel was doing a guest spot on Fripp's album. Re missing them: that's why I settled on posting the links every Friday. They last two days, so you shouldn't ever have to miss one unless you're offline during the weekend.
