Been listening to Fleetwood Mac's 1975 self-titled album and 1977's masterwork, RUMOURS all week.


Great choices!

When I (and all the radio stations) over-played RUMOURS in 1977/1978, I vowed I would never listen to it again. Now, having heard these classic songs again on the oldies stations I listen to, I actually went out and re-bought the album recently... and I find myself absolutely *loving* it!!!

Really good covers and some original tracks.

Check out my YT link for a taste. Very 1970's European film music style don't you think?

Nice. I remember loving Rise To The Occasion by Climie Fisher when it was released in 87. A pity Fisher died so young.
Broadcast has some good tracks too, like the title track for instance.

Yes, a great shame he died. Bowel Cancer, if I remember. I like that album, I remember being underwhelmed by their follow up however, 'Coming In For The Kill'.

Today I caught the artist Sia (who continues to sing with her back towards the audience, face unseen) on the Ellen DeGeneris show, singing "Candelabra," and just had to buy it at iTunes for $1.29. Frankly, I think I enjoyed it more on the tv program, with a very interesting teen girl dancing, but am still glad I bought it.

Anyone else like Boney M? Cheesy nonsense, but fun!!

Doesn't get more cheesy than that, no. Boney M played in my small hometown in Norway back in the mid 80s, but I can't call myself a fan.

Apart from Milli Vanilli, that is! Same producer of course, Frank Farian. Though I would draw the line at listening to them. Terrible what happened to them in retrospect.

Boney M were massive in the UK during the late 70's - early 80's. Very catchy pop music but too cheesy for my taste.

I was tortured by Boney M once. An 8 hour bus ride in Nepal where the driver had one cassette tape, Boney M's Greatest Hits which he played over and over and over again. After about 4 hours a Nepalese passenger went to the front of the bus and took the cassette away from the driver and everybody cheered. big grin

Timmer, good choice with the Oldfield. My favourite of his is 'Crises' which I've been listening to recently, but I love most of his stuff.



Have you heard his new album yet, 'Man On the Rocks'? It's a bit different for him, but I really like it.

I love CRISIS. I've only listened to Man On The Rocks once and was very luke-warm on it, I'll have to give it more listens.
