Sorry, Jim, I'll have to give that clip a spin when I'm home, I can't play Youtube clips at work!

Oh, Jim, you were not wrong!! The bass alone is staggering! :)

No chance of a CD reissue?

Thanks, Pierre, and I've noticed Greg has that reissue listed on his Syn-phonic page! Gentlemen, you've just made a sale!

Well, I'm excited about this!

Phoenix Again have put out a second album!

http://www.btf.it/catalog/product/view/id/21354/s/look-out/?___store=btf_english&___from_store=default

I really enjoyed their proper debut, gave it a nice review quite a while back. If I recall, they were a vintage band that didn't get the chance to record until these days.

Bella Band is awesome!  Great stuff Thumbs Up
 
 
 
Been on the road lately and came back to a honey do list of which my newest post winter tradition now exists.  I present the 2nd Annual Jacula (Tardo...) Sacrificial brush fire burn.  With newly acquired Three Monks - Legend of the Holy Circle as the back up band.
 
I just love the Jacula Tardo album, for some strange reason it hits me in a spiritual kind of way, when "Absolution" comes on the blaze takes a life of its own...the beer helps Smile.

The 2nd annual Tardo brush burn!  That's awesome, manLOLBeer

Michael, glad you like the Bella.  Another hidden one is that Cincinnatto album that Pierre had in his poll the other day.  I love the egg cover....looks great on the mini LP

Thanks Jim, and Pierre too! I HAVE seen this show up on one of Greg Walker's list (can't recall if it was LP or CD), and was always curious. I love it's rougher wilder guitar sound! That bass really chases you too!

(thanks for the clip Pierre!)

Jim, I hope that your new Avatar is not in your yard!  That bird feeder looks to be on a 4 or 5 foot pole with very little clearance to the snow.  This winter has been ridiculous!
 
Really been getting into this one over the past few weeks since the sad news.  I am usually not a fan of live albums, but this is one of the exceptions!

Jim....yep....that's right outside my back window a month or so ago.  The birds could just walk right up to the feeder without even flapping their wings.  Not that there's too  many around.  It was a brutal winter, cold and tons of snow.  But its melting good now. 

Makes driving an adventure, that's for sure.  Approve

This is too cool for me not to reply.  I was just looking through my RPI list of what to get next, I had it down to a couple of choices and Papillion was one of them...looks like that is what I am going to get tonight! 
 
Thanks for the influence my fine feathered friend!  With an assist by The H...

Guys, finally spun my CD of this, even though I bought it a month or two ago:



http://www.progarchives.com/album.asp?id=41273

Dark dramatic improvised jazz with an insane vocalist ranting over the top! Gianni Venturi barely sings, instead he spits, taunts, croons...I have never heard vocals done in such a way, only Claudio Milano of Nicholodean comes close for sheer originality.

A very difficult album but utterly unique and fascinating!

Oh yes that was very good Mike! quite unique and different from the stuff I'm used to hear from Italy. Very jazzy and also borders lounge music? where Michelle Pfeiffer is lying on the piano, I mean that in a good way if that's possible Wink
I'd like to investigate that one further more, thanks! Clap
