It's not meant to reflect Los Angeles. It's meant to reflect a certain LA sound from the past, which it does.
Give me examples

Re: Hotspot: 1 year old today

The two albums had a modus operandi which they both successfully accomplished - "Elysium" to sound "L.A." and "Hotspot" to sound "Berlin". If you listen to these albums and are not transported to those places, I'd be astonished. (and for the record I have nev...

Re: It Doesn't Often Appear At Christmas

Chart wise, its only really ten years old, which is probably not old enough to properly surface yet. Most of the top 20 look like older songs re-charting. Chris Rea wasn't even a top 40 hit when first released. Now its peaked at 11. The chart is an abomination. A national institution thats been rui...

Re: Closer To Heaven items on auction for Stonewall

So they went for far less than I was prepared to pay privately. Ah well. I wasn’t available for the end of the auction so they were never going to be mine. You could just enter your maximum bid in advance at any time. eBay would not allocate it all unless someone else bids above it. But I'm glad yo...

Re: Closer To Heaven items on auction for Stonewall

I'm happy to be the bidder and final disc owner. Depending upon the final sale price, the files would be made available at a reasonable cost so that most people could enjoy them. I'll cover the shipping to the US as detailed in the listing.

Re: CD with demos of "Actually"

I wondered if they could be in-house test pressings from when Actually - Further Listening was being prepared around 2001? Then it would make no sense to create a "Demos" disc along with "Further listening"; all those tracks would have gone on the "Further listening" d...

Re: CD with demos of "Actually"

They are expensive (bit steep even for me) but this is the sort of unique opportunity to hear stuff we may otherwise never hear. We’ve had all the further listening (twice), so unless we get some super deluxe editions in six or seven years, these are the stuff of holy grails. Maybe a group of you sh...

Re: Best version of Discography

The best version of Discography is the version that was released back in November 1991 18 tracks of pure pop perfection of 5 minutes 1 second or less. I would agree. Probably the most perfect, consistent greatest hits that arrived at the perfect time in their imperial period. However, I have two ve...
