Brill :-D

Focus takes me right back to my pre and early teenage years and my early introductions to prog rock by one of the TV engineers at the workshop I worked in during school holidays and weekends from the age of 12...

Would that be considered child abuse today?

Sylvia is high in my all time top 100...

Interesting seeing all the posts of Neil Young & Joni Mitchell (she may be totally bonkers, but I hope she recovers) I loved them when i was at school & still listen now. Anyone know or like Elliott Smith? My absolute all time favourite, even better than The Smiths!

You may also discover where my username comes from!

Edit; Why doesn't the youtube thing work for me?

Edit #2 - it does now :) (Steve)

Hit the Edit or Quote button to see how but you need the Youtube code wrapper around the clip number - i.e. M8wZcpTwN7o

[youtube ]M8wZcpTwN7o[ /youtube]

The only bit in between [youtube][/youtube] should be the number of the clip you want after the v=. For the clip above it would be kEbIZbX3v6g

Well Pretty Woman is on the TV again at the moment, dnd one of the musical contributors was Robert Palmer.

Perfect excuse to post up two for the juke box from Robert. Even without an old shool telly to show the visuals there can't be a single punter at the Pickled Egg who can't play the video in their heads as the track starts up.....

I give the PE Jukebox.....



and an inspired putting together of two marvin gaye tracks Mercy Mercy me and I want you

Yes and some of the older customers will remember Roy Orbison first time round, but the clip is from a one night only appearance on the dukes of hazard presumably referring to daisy!

Elina Garanca & Anna Netrebko, Barcarolle (rehearsal)
Jim, If you thought Johanna Söderberg looks good, Take a look at Elina (the blond). Fabulous!
Anna is fine too but struggles with her weight a bit.
Exquisite voices the pair of them.




Elina Garanca: Habanera



She looks full of mischief and devilment :mrgreen:
Her husband conducting - I bet he needs to keep an eye on her :twisted:

The pair of them again, Flower Duet.


Amazing to think that Anna worked her way up from a cleaner in the Moscow Opera House to one of it's most lauded artists.

Hayley Westenra & Russel Watson, Pokarakare Ana


Hayley was 15 there!

Lest we forget, here are Clarke and Smith

and a bit of background from "Ferrograph World"

This was the centre of their empire (Wallington Surrey, also the birthplace of guitarist Jeff Beck, who was mentioned is despatches earlier in the thread)

I had convinced myself that Ferrograph were a Newcastle company, don't know why.

One thing that surprised me (long story, sorry).

Years ago, the bloke I bought my HiFi stuff from was selling a Transcriptor turntable - as featured in "A Clockwork Orange" - the Angel Trumpets bit.
It was staggeringly expensive and stayed in the window for a couple of years.
He moved locations and had a massive sale. The Transcriptor was offered for something like £1400.

I had an old schoolmate visiting - he wandered all over the world and worked for SIDA at the time.
A friend of his at SIDA asked him to get the Transcriptor, so we went and bought it, bunged it on the back seat of the firms Volvo and set of for Västerås.
When we got there we were aghast at the sight of oil on the back seat - leaked out from the Transcriptor - the platter and tone arm floated in separate 'oil wells'

Only a little had been lost but it was years before the guy manged to get the speed accurate :(

Anyway, I had lived here for years and regularly passed the Vickers armaments factory and see attached to it a large Michell factory without giving it much thought.
Eventually discovered that Michell made the optical sighting and ranging gear for the tanks.
Even later discovered that the MD had used the very fine engineering capabilities to make himself what he considered to be the very finest record deck possible.
His mates saw it and talked him into producing them commercially - hence the Transcriptor.
Now long gone but lives on as the Michell Gyrodeck :)
