If on iTunes

Hello guys,

Just a quick note to let you know that If shows up on iTunes this morning but when you click on it there is a message that pops up that states the album is unavailable.

Looking forward to hearing this!

Cheers all :)

Inconsolable Secret is such a sweet record and one that I practically wore out, especially that summer of 2005 in our travels. So many of the songs bring back such strong memories of places. I don't know how to feel about a new IS!

Over the past six months I've been listening to GH's Compilations album more than most other records. Just wonderful on so many levels.

Just finished up a couple of epics by Dan Simmons: The Terror and Drood. Both historical, with a touch of the fantastical. As usual per Simmons, both are compelling reads with richly drawn characters and intricate plotting on a very large scale. Drood features Charles Dickens, Wilkie Collins and of ...

First, I think, was Elton John's Goodbye Yellowbrick Road.
Last was a recording of Mahler's Symphony No. 3 paired with Das Klagende Lied just this morning via iTunes.

I love Olias as an album and iirc, this period for Jon was still about composing lyrics that sounded right with the music, regardless of meaning. Think of Close to the Edge: A seasoned witch to call you to the depths of your disgrace, I rearrange your liver to the solid mental grace. Makes no sense,...

"Yes" doing Parallels a couple of nights back: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=vdtvsGjAacc Not bad. Benoit David looks like Jon circa 1984. The set list I saw included Tempus Fugit and Machine Messiah. edit: Here is what Parallels sounded like in 1977: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=YiDp8DuxkKw&feature...

I'm a little surprised too that Steve, Chris and Alan want to go out, but I remember reading somewhere recently that Chris said he hoped Jon would be well enough to tour next year so perhaps this isn't the last go round, but it's gotta be getting close. Howe will probably live to be 125 and still be...
