Billy Joel "Pianoman" Original Video
First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.
Yes, this video is on YouTube and YouTube is not an alarm clock.
My last five non classical albums, all played in the previous three days
Moody Blues Days of Future Passed, I like this. The use of an orchestra seems pretty good, except for that final gong.
Claude Bolling Suite for Flute and Jazz Piano Trio. A recent purchase, I saw it fairly cheaply on Amazonia. Do you consider this classical? I don't, though it did win for best chamber music. This is the original with Jean Paul Rampal. Terrific
Yes, The Yes Album. Wonderful and optimistic music
Pink Floyd Animals
Pink Floyd The Final Cut. Has the post war dream finally ended? I leave that as an unanswered and unanswerable question.
I love the Yes album and Pink Floyd's Final Cut. The Final Cut has an atmosphere that brings back the bad days of Thatcher and the way we felt about that very vividly. I'll immediately put it on.
