Skids - Wide Open (1978, UK, new wave) 
Tuesday, September 25, 2007, 06:42 PM - Music, - UK, English
When I posted live recordings of Armoury Show with Richard Jobson, I remembered I own an early 12" of the Skids, former band of Richard J.

Other Skids members:
Stuart Adamson - lead guitar
William Simpson - bass
Thomas Kellichan - drums



Side one:
1 The Saints Are Coming
2 Of One Skin

Side two:
1 Night and Day
2 Contusion

U2 and Green Day performed The Saints Are Coming live in New Orleans.
But the Skids still are better!

Barclay James Harvest - Live (1974, UK, symphonic rock) 
Saturday, September 15, 2007, 06:27 PM - Music, - UK, English
For the Mellotron fetishist.
I personally prefer these live versions. In the studio BJH could polish the sound and use symphony orchestras, which made the already mellow songs too sweet. Live they had to perform the music with keyboards (mellotron!), guitar, bass and drums. That made the sound rougher.

John Lees: Lead guitar, Recorder, Vocals
Les Holroyd: Bass guitar, Rhythm guitar, Vocals
Stuart Wolstenholme: Mellotron, Electric Piano, Moog, Vocals
Mel Pritchard: Drums



Side one:
Summer Soldier [11:19]
Medicine Man [10:27]

Side two:
Crazy City [4:55]
After The Day [7:24]
The Great 1974 Mining Disaster [6:28]

Side three:
Galadriel [3:11]
Negative Earth [6:20]
She Said [8:31]

Side four:
Paper Wings [4:17]
For No One [5:48]
Mockingbird [7:40]
