Chris and his Monitor

I have often wondered that has Chris always mimed his keyboard parts whilst performing live on tour pre 2002's Release Tour? Every tour since then he has had his sheet music or monitor in front of him. How often do you suppose he can play his notes without looking at the monitor given how many perfo...

Re: Henley Festival Ticket fiasco narrowly averted - buyer beware!

Yep, we were there last night. Awesome surroundings. Had aisle seat right at the back of the Grandstand. Could capture the whole of the river atmosphere, although too high to see all the screen projections on stage but saw it all at R O H last summer. Still buzzing now. Neil & Chris were suppose...

Re: Live versions of songs as studio releases

The Performance arrangement of Always on my mind is no doubt my best ever live version of this epic. The sequencing at the end is just sublime. They're always going to play this in concerts but I feel it's been diluted as time goes on....although saying that, love the additional sound effects Neil s...

Surely the clue is in the title…..

Re: 2017: "New Batch" of reissued & remastered albums w/ Further Listening albums

I dont think we'll get the Yes instrumentals as they were already released at the time of the album. Some of my fav PSB instrumentals though - so sharp and fresh.

Surely 90% of the music on the previous Further Listenings were released at the time of the respective album!!!!

Looking forward to the Yes Further Listening the most.
Hopefully get to hear their version of The Loving Kind & do you think the Yes Instrumentals will be included?

Instrumental delights

Love listening to Pet Shop Boys instrumentals. They bring a new dimension to the listening experience of quality songs. My best one is More than a dream. The part where "driving through the night, just you and me...."is simply pure musical perfection. Any chance of the boys releasing ALL t...

It doesn't often appear at Christmas

It's that time of year when I dig out my Christmas cd's. It doesn't often snow at Christmas is always on the top of my playlist. Just can't believe it hasn't appeared on any Christmas compilation album since Elton John's album. As Neil once said he wanted to make a video for it "as its Christma...

Very rare, but when it does go wrong it shows Machines are like Humans…not Invincible!

20 Seconds and counting.....T Minus 15 Seconds Guidance is internal

In the Discography-The Complete Singles Collection sleeve notes, Neil comments "God knows what relevance 20 Seconds and counting has...."to It's a sin. I think it's a random choice to pick such a marvel & famous quotation and use it as a sample in such an epic as It's a sin and then to...
