Listening to the medieval side of Blackmore today:
Blackmore's Night
http://blackmoresnight.com/

Their cover of Diamonds and Rust was the first track I ever heard by them.
On a crystal morning I can see the dewdrops falling
Down from a gleaming heaven, I can hear the voices calling
When you comin' home now, son, this world is not for you

Deadwing and In Absentia are both excellent-but I have to be in the right mood for them-didn't care for Signify or the older ones, got rid of em. I haven't heard Stupid Dream.

Boston Tea Party-A fusion who's who featuring T Lavitz,Dennis Chambers,Jeff Berlin, and Dave "Fuze"-can't spell his last name(that plays for the "Scraming Headless Torsos"-anybody familiar with them? Anyway-Berlin and Lavitz really smoke on this, Chambers is uncharacteristiclly restrained, and "Fuze" is all over the place-definetely has his own sound. This is on Tone Center records whose fusion stuff is ALL pretty good-if you like that sort of thing!

Wow- Lavitz and Berlin! I had no idea they had a project. Gotta get that!!

I've recently been into:

10cc (the Godley/Creme period)
Max Webster
Wendy Carlos
High Wheel (got their album at NEARFest)
Rush: Caress Of Steel
Kate Bush: The Dreaming

And an amzing album from 1987 by Jane Siberry called The Walking which is a little Kate Bush-esque but frankly a lot cooler.

[quote="FredProgGH"]Wow- Lavitz and Berlin! I had no idea they had a project. Gotta get that!!

Yeah-and they are really the highlights so far. Berlin is just amazing! He doesn't record nearly enough. I got a Bruford compliation DVD on Ebay that includes the 1978 Rock goes to college on it with Holdsworth,Berlin, and Dave Stewart. what a band!!! He;s incredible there too! I ctually got to see him do a clinic in memphis in the early 90's with shawn Lane and Walfredo Reyes(of Santana). they did like a 30 min. version of "Crossroads". T Lavitz is great too-saw him with the Dregs when they opened for DT in 2000.They just didn't let Chambers do enough-my only comlaint so far!!!!!

I've got Rock Goes To College on VHS somewhere. That was a great band. I saw them at Mile High Stadium one year opening a big all day festival show with UFO, The Cars, Ted Nugent and Heart. Bruford was a last minute replacement. A little out of place on that bill, but they were the best band of the day.

I don't specifically remember- you would think, but I wasn't a big UFO fan, although I liked them.

Oh now come on-I remember everything from my concertsdays in the 70's!!!HEHE-there couldn't have been some internal enhancement involved to cloud your memory could there have been? Bruford and schenker on the same bill would have made me spontaneously combust back then-I was a HUGE UFO fan, but didn't get to see them until 1980 or so, and Schenker was gone, and everyone was booing the new guitarist and yelling "MICHAEL"

Best track by UFO for me has to be Love To Love from Lights Out.
Strangers In The Night captures it perfectly.
They were good with Schenker but they made good albums without him 8)
Barclay James Harvest - Everyone Is Everybody Else is today's choice for me.

That is a killer song(love to Love)-was that off of Lights out or Force it? Force it was my fav overall. Let it Roll and Rock bottom are still my favs, There's some softer songs from Phenomenon that are really good to.

Lights Out and Doctor Doctor were alwasys overrated and overplayed! My all time favs:Too Young to know,Love Lost love,Out in the Street,mother Mary, Pack it up and Go, and Only you can rock Me. i remembered Paul Chapman even bothced LO and DD live-it was ptitiful . Saw a MSG video recently-He's still got it, and or course more than half the set list was UFO songs just mentioned. His first solo album(and maybe the second too) were awesome! another awesome guitarist from that era was the Scorpions original lead guitarist Uli Roth. He;s apparantely still around shredding also. there's a live CD out there with both of them on it. i need to pick it up sometime.
