Thank you for the reminder. As soon as I read your post, I jumped over to Amazon and ordered the remastered version (I currently only have the original 1982 CD version.)

I was never a fan of hers and I haven't hear this album since the 80s. However, when I got this CD last week, I couldn't believe what I was missing. Now officially a Kate Bush fan.

I saw Zappa and the Mothers at the Atlantic City Rock Festival in 1969. The only band that I "might" think could match them for tightness would be King Crimson.

It is a great album, but does not guarantee liking all of her stuff. Some of her recordings are quite a lot different. Arial, however, is a certified masterpiece.

I am rediscovering a lot of CD's with my new setup in terms of I'm finding new instruments, new "layers" to music I haven't heard before. Right now my most listened to CD is "Siamese Dream" by the Smashing Pumpkins. I know SP isn't "for everyone", but I think this CD is really solid from beginning to end. Lots of instruments layered on top of one another and a few tracks like "Soma" have great dynamics to them.

There was I time when I liked them, but my tastes have changed. In fact, I have just about quit listening to any type of rock (jazz, new age, and world music make up at least 80% of my listening now.)

New to the AVS forum, wish I still had the Talk-Talk album, great album. Westgate or anybody else listen to Choclate Watchband? Vinyl wise last listened to Long John Baldry-Everything stops for tea, Muddy Waters-Folksinger chess label nice sound vinyl or cd. Recently listened to F. Zappa-Burnt Weeny Sandwich still sounds great WPLJ.

The album you have stashed away is (It Aint Easy) and that has (Dont try to lay no Boogie Woogie on the King of R&R) I just picked up that Cd a while back mainly because of that song. They reissued both albums on Cd, Mr. Baldry passed away not to long ago R.I.P. Unfortunately I removed my turntable to make room for a new Pioneer Rec., although I do plan on setting up a another system with a vintage marantz Rec, and some old Coral speakers I purchased in Hong Kong while in the Navy. Couple other albums I listened to before removing player, John Mayall (Back to the Roots) and Savoy Brown (Raw Sienna).

Love that Zappa! The Grand Wazoo is another good instrumental Zappa album.

Currently I'm listening to:

Nektar: Remember the Future
Blue Oyster Cult: Cultosaurus Erectus, Tyranny and Mutation
Dream Theater: Systematic Chaos, Train of Thought, and Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence (second CD)
SymphonyX: Paradise Lost (been on a heavy metal binge lately - well, except for Nektar)

2 Re-mastered Jethro Tull - This Was and Stand Up. Sound excellent.
Re-mastered U2 - Joshua Tree
Led Zeppelin Box set of a few years ago. Jimmy Page is an artist with re-mastering of old Zep tunes.

Ellen Foley LP, wish it had been put out on CD...

You got it!

I have 2 albums, "Night Out" and "Spirit of St. Louis" both great.
The 2nd album has many songs co-written by Joe Strummer and Mick Jones of the Clash. I think she was going out with Mick Jones at the time...

Great voice.

I just picked up the re=master 30th anniversary edition's of the Joy Division catalog -
Unknown Pleasures
Closer
Still

They have done a great job with the sound of the bonus material - which is a live show that was recorded around the time of the release of the original albums (except Still since Ian Curtis was dead when the album was released)
