Alan Parsons new album

Hi, I heard Alan Parsons new album "The Secret" released today, my first impression after a first listen is that is the best solo album by Alan Parsons, great melodies and arrangements, with Alan taking lead vocals in one track at least, highly recomended, a far move from his last album " A valid pa...

Great interview to Jerry Sahlin (A.C.T)

Hi to all of you I discovered this recent interview, I always knew he is a big fan of ELO (my favourite band) and he likes City Boy (my second favourite) a lot. But in this interview no only he talked about ELO, he mentioned City Boy in the first answer, but what surprise me in great way was his ans...

Queen's Innuendo title song

I found in this song (Innuendo), a great song, similiraties with City Boy. I'm talking mainly about the guitar playing, with State Secrets-A Thriller (Spring in Peking) and Dear Jean (I'm nervous). Some of Brian may guitar parts reminds me of these 2 songs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2N0TkfrQh...

Re: Turn on to Jesus

Hi Martin again
When you say Jesus being prominent in this kind of bar, you refers that Jesus (religius) kind of music was being played in the bar?, or there was a big image of Jesus hanging on the wall? or a big crucifix?

Re: Turn on to Jesus

Hi Martin
Thanks for your answer, very interesting information, about the phrase "Micky take", what does it means exactly ?, something like a joke, a contradiction, or the idea that these two facts together can't happen at the same time.
Cheers

Re: Turn on to Jesus

Hi all Thanks for all of your answers, no doubt about that Turn on to Jesus wasn't the best name for a potential hit single, but what about the lyrics? My big question is: if in the lyrics there is a openly critic on religion or something to give you a kind of negative interpretation? Maybe was just...

Turn on to Jesus

Hi everyone, just to know exactly what the original title "Turn on to Jesus" means, I understand that maybe means for me (not sure) be yourself Jesus, buy I'm not sure. I would like exactly what it means, and if the record company rejected in favour of 5705, was it for the title or the lyrics?, or f...

Re: Happy Christmas!

Yes, you're right and 2009 was the peak with Max and Roy plans to reform the band. That dream of a new album dissapeared year by year, first with Renaissence Records being dissolved, and later with Mike not being interested at all (and that was the only remaining chance to get a recording deal). As ...

Re: Happy Christmas!

Thanks Robin, the facebook page is dead, I never got a message from there. It looks like this is the only place to get some related news but unfortunately is very quiet. Some input from ex-members of the band would be appreciated.
