That's not a nice name to call John Greaves.

It's more the flavour of him though...

Say, this might be good for this thread.  It's a letter dated February 1991 I received from Dave Stewart, in reply to a fan letter my friend Rob and I sent him upon the CD release of "National Health Complete", one of the greatest prog collections I'd heard to that point.  Thankfully I've kept the letter in good condition.

Opinions on this one?


The three longer pieces are great.

I suppose I am biased (as a drummer who loves percussions) but I would have loved at least one of the Wind Quartets to have some drumming on it. Not to say they are uninteresting as is, just kinda breaks the mood of the album to my ears.

Hell yes Pierre! I love COS. Perhaps one of my favourite Belgian acts. Apart from the vocals of Pascal Son, I find myself increasingly drawn towards the percussion side of things. I love all the clever bongos and such, and it's almost omnipresent in their output.

Yeah. And Marc Hollander too. A few years ago, I wrote the lyrics for the project of a friend musician. Marc Hollander loved it and we almost signed on his label Crammed discs. Almost ...Unhappy

Cool story man. I didn't know you wrote.

Steve, what an honour to receive that letter from Mr Stewart! And might I say, Dave's handwriting is beautiful!

I especially noticed that, because I recently discovered that my handwritng has really gone to s**t, so I appreciate good hand-writing skills!

Pierre!! Where do you find all these pictures?! You literally have one for every single occasion, no matter how obscure! I'm beginning to wonder if you draw/photograph all these yourself when the need arises! I was especially impressed with your recent `In The Duck of Grey and Pink' efforts lol!

Don't be surprised, Michael, this is real life ! Love and Music are concrete. The rest is illusion.

Man With Hat/Phil,

Is it just me, or does that `Civil Service' album seem to have some wildly inconsistent drum/percussion mixing?! Some sections it's spot on, the next they swamp every other instrument!

Still a nice pleasant album, plenty for Canterbury fans to enjoy on it

Pierre!! I listened to that only two hours ago, just before I finished work lol!   

It took me a long time to appreciate that one, it seemed so fragmented and unfocused on the first few plays! I think when I first got it was I expecting it to sound like Caravan, but it turned out to be much more involved, experimental and complex! A wonderful album, a Canterbury classic!

Oh yeah, Dave has the best penmanship in prog, hands down.  That letter is frameable.
