I am not exaggerating when I say that I have probably listened to Sugar's "Copper Blue" from start to finish a minimum of several hundred times, and it's still capable of hitting me right in the gut. It's so goddamn good.
The Airwolf theme song arranged for 8 cellos is *extremely* my brand https://www.youtube.com/embed/73iTHJQaxcY
My best friend in High School spent a year in Switzerland (his dad was swiss and had regular sabbaticals, which worked out nicely for his family) which was where he came across a CD pressing of Tony Ashton & Jon Lord's 1974 "First of the Big Bands." I dubbed a copy as a dutiful Deep Purple fan but I didn't listen to it a ton at the time.
I was pleasantly surprised to find a used copy on vinyl a couple of years ago, and I've gained a better appreciation for it. (I *always* really liked 'Band of the Salvation Army Band' though)

Have a free listen and please consider following if you enjoy this sort of weirdness! #magicianssociety #bandcampfriday #mastomusic #musiciansofmastodon http://magicians.bandcamp.com/track/funeral-march
Disappointed by the dearth of #mellotron content on the fediverse, tbqh
It was so weird watching Genesis slowly turn into Phil Collins' bland pop backup band during the 1980s.
Don't get me wrong, I love early-mid 1980's Collins Genesis, but "We Can't Dance" was not recognizable as Genesis*
*I should probably actually listen to the whole album some time, but I've never been inclined based on the singles.
I mean, "I can't dance" is frankly garbage compared to pretty much anything on Abacab
Most of the people I follow #onhere have a boomer-rocksona
Which is fine! Mine is The Clash. They count.
I've always liked David Barbe's contributions to Sugar, and I've always wondered how Sugar might have evolved as a band if Bob hadn't flamed out.
I've also always secretly wondered if part of the reason Bob blew the band up was because he didn't want to be in another competing-for-songs situation once David started writing songs on FU:EL. (I really need to read Bob's book one of these days) #nowplaying #np #tootradio #sugar #davidbarbe #1990s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=npERnnxMZKU
