Thanks to Advent's Alan Benjamin for pointing out a typo in the latest play list. The last of Advent tunes being played this coming week should have been written as: 'In Illo Tempore - To Dunsinane'. (Not a repeat play of "The Uncharted Path'). Apologies. Dick Heath

No major theme this week, however you will discover a greater number of longer tunes than normal, in particular during the jazz start. Another theme features the music of the semi-pro prog band Advent, with the release of their long awaited album 'Silent Sentinel'. Other new releases here included Allan Holdsworth's 'Eidonon', the eponymous Heath Green & The Makeshifters, and the country rock of The Whiskey Gentry. The show ends with that haunting piece of analogue electronica by pioneers White Noise, "The Visitation".


Please note the UK moves their clocks forward into British Summer Time next weekend, while I believe North America have done this already.

I had a short correspondence with former Touch bass player and singer Bruce Hauser via Facebook last week. Subsequently I felt I had to play something from that early classic American progressive album; that's where we finish. From that, the theme of this show developed, a reminder that progressive music wasn't purely a British development and there was an explosion of inventive music appearing in the latter half of the 60's, in the USA. Therefore the music below dates from 1965 to 1971, by all American bands (with a few other nationalities included in line ups)  but I have gone for a couple of alternative takes and/or remastered versions.

Trying to keep the themed shows going, and so this coming week's heavy ALT2 Show, follows the Gren Bartley, John Wetton and the violin specials. Suggestions for future themes are welcomed.


A couple of excellent new releases feature, i.e. from the essential Allan Holdsworth compilation, 'Eidonon' and some excellent RnB from Heath Green & The Makeshifts (one comparison made to the Frankie Miller Band by a reviewer, maybe but better). No folk - can somebody suggest heavy folk please? However, a good smattering of various forms of heavy jazz fusion spread through the show. A couple of favourites reappear (after a couple of years rest): Frumpy and a track that shows all/most of the tricks when playing rock Hammond; Ygnwie Malmsteen (with the excellent Johansson bros) tackling a classic UK tune; Paul Gilbert plays Brubeck or is that Mozart; Mr Eklundh and Freak Kitchen going Indo-rock ("No, We're Not Danes"), and finally "Kashmir" with an Egyptian orchestra augmenting Plant & Page. Don't forget to turn it up loud next Thursday night.

It has been quite some years after the last Violin Special but to the third of such, (and there may be an odd viola in here too). (which reminds me to update the catalogue of violinists I posted here some years ago.

Therefore be surprised at the range of playing styles and music here. Inevitably I have to kick off with the former opening music for the show. I'm not tempted to give too many details here, because of the variety, I intend playing, so only a couple more comments. Alas I could not find my Papa John Cretch recordings, to boost a lack of blues here (but last week's show had an above average amount of rock blues). Having considered it for a long time, simply because it will be the longest track I've played in several decades, we finish with the Morgaua Quartet's excellent interpretation of Yes's 'Close To The Edge'. Next week in contrast, I can reveal an airing of a forthcoming excellent (IMHO) RnB album (out in March) by Heath Green & The Makeshifters.

Apologies about putting this playlist up on the day of broadcast, but I've been fully occupied repainting my lounge  - I did once have a volunteer to do the curtains but she escaped 2 years ago. 


The grim reaper has struck again, it seems weekly now that I play something from a now regrettably dead musicians. This time the great and innovative jazz guitarist, Larry Coryell, said by some as the godfather of jazz fusion, so three of his pieces this week. As I mentioned earlier in the seasoning, following the death of Coryell's colleague, Alphonse Mouzon, I had the privilege of meeting both at London's Jazz Cafe over a decade ago. More from Ed Palermo's slightly hit and miss 'Great Un-American Songbook'. Something from the (American as opposed to the Dutch) Knitts' forthcoming album. The newie from the Residents, an album of songs about rail accidents.... I'm afraid the morbidity continues. As a devoted early Chicago fan, I had to include somethings from the Steven Wilson remixed Chicago album. And more memories of the late Deke Leonard with Man.

John Wetton was a major musician with respect to numbers of albums in my music collection (e.g. cf. David Bowie),  so most the music being played Thursday night with have direct or indirect connections to John Wetton: respectively, the former featuring Wetton, the latter covers of tunes that he recorded first.  Lesser known musicians, who alas have also died in the last few weeks, are featured, i.e.  Doug Lunn and Deke Leonard. In addition, a couple of carry overs from last week's excellent show with Gren Bartley, (I was surprised to discover on playback, that only one Bartley tune was played last week, when we put the show together live on air), so one tune to make up for that and a tune taken from Gren's favourite Tool album. Interesting album of covers by Ed Palermo's BB, due to be released at the end of this month, as featured. A couple of days left to download the recording of the ALT2 Show with Gren Bartley.
