Public Service Announcement

John taylor cap

I want to raise awareness on two issues today.

1. I want to remind people that John Taylor is the Earth’s Most Beautiful Human right after Gregory Peck.

2.  I want to tell any Duranies who may not know about it to run out and BUY the 2009 “Live at Hammersmith 82!” set.

This is the finest $17 I’ve spent in I don’t know how long!  It is a 2-disc set, and you get one DVD of the Hammersmith concert footage (about an hour), PLUS two Top of the Pops performances, AND six original classic videos from Rio.  Which works great for me, as I had all of those videos at one point on the Decade greatest hits VHS tape but that long since disappeared/wore out/I don’t own a VHS player anymore.  The second disc is an audio CD of all the live tracks from the Hammersmith show.  I’m not an audiophile and I wouldn’t normally notice this, but the songs have all been remastered beautifully!  So important with live stuff!

The concert itself is perfection; much better and simpler and more about the band/music than the big mess that was Arena. Here’s a sample lifted from the DVD…for educational purposes and because I canNOT watch this too many times.

Instant happy dancing & idiotic grins; isn’t that what we all need?  Go buy this set.  It’s out of print already, but buy it from a reseller or on eBay or…you will not regret it!

    Idiotic grins and happy dancing all over the place. I’ve never seen the clip for that song. Thanks, Cheryl.

    I never knew they covered that song! (Of course, at the time they were big, I wouldn’t have known it was a cover.) Excellent choice.
