Re: I saw a CB video in my sleep

Hi <1after2>,<P>I'm glad to see I am not the only person here to have had a dream regarding CB.<P>Mine was really cool, because in the video I was dreaming about, it was a stage set-up and each was playing their respective instruments.<P>Anyway, many of the folks I have introduced to CB liked their ...

I saw a CB video in my sleep

I have been introducing CB's music to more people recently, basically people who haven't a clue to who CB is/was.<P>I guess I have been trying so intently to bring CB's music to life for these folks that in my own mind, CB has come to life again.<P>Perhaps because of this, I had a vivid dream last n...

Re: Another Bad Day At Work- a sequel

I must agree, the Ballroom Blitz intro is timeless and very hip.<P>Yeah, Sweet really was an underrated band. I think I'm going to go down to Best Buy today and see if I can find something by them on CD.<P>I used to have a couple of their lps., but that was eons ago.<P>I'm in the process of replacin...

Another Bad Day At Work- a sequel

Hey all,<P> OOhh NNoo. <P>Actually, just attempting to add a little humor, here.<P>Easy, Disiplinarian.<P>Actually, at work today we were talking about the band, Sweet, and it occurred to us that they sounded a bit like CB.<P>Remember Sweet? Love Is Like Oxygen. Fox On The Run.<P>Just curious about ...

Re: TDTECF album cover

Sounds good to me, Cockatootoo...or should I say Dacockatootooness!<P>I've always felt that the better bands put forth an underlying story regarding their music, or maybe something about the band members, themselves. <P>It is likely that the Beatles started this sort of thing... remember the notion ...

Re: Gigs

You have me beat, Dave!<P>What I find amazing, however, is that you can recall the actual day of each concert you have seen! <P>I wouldn't even be able to tell you some of the bands I have seen, regardless to the date. My memory doesn't serve me that well. <P>May be my age showing, here.<P>SirAlDaMa...

Re: bad day at work

Dacockatootooness!! Now that brightens up my day! Good one, my friend. <P>Poor DaDrew. Looks like it is your turn through the ringer, now. <P>You know, I think I'm going to put on some music. And guess what? It may be loud. In fact, it may be very loud. <P>I may even blow a speaker, or two. Hey, new...

Re: CB's producer

Sorry, Lee G, I'm not sure of the name of the song. It was kind of a fast-paced song and I would assume it was her most recently released single.<P>I have really never payed attention to her music until now, having found out she is related to City Boy through her husband. <P>I know the video to it w...

CB's producer

I just learned of an interesting fact that some of you may already be aware of, but I must tell somebody!<P>Thanksgiving day, I'm over the inlaws with my wife and she tuned into the country video station on the TV. <P>A Shania Twain song comes on, whom I can't stand, though I have no choice but to l...

Re: bad day at work

I have a bad day at work and now the whole world is arguing the morale issues of Sex & Drugs & Rock and Roll.<P>I can't imagine a world of sane, peace loving people without a way to relieve stress. There are many, of course, but great music, good drink and a loving companion are universal st...

CB & ELO had Louis Clarke do strings arrangements

I've been clear about my appreciation for ELO. I think both ELO and CB are just about equals. <P>I don't know if anyone has noticed, however, but both ELO and CB had Louis Clarke do their classical/orchestral arrangements. <P>Quite exciting, I think.<P>May partly explain why I rate these two bands i...

Hey Disciplinarian,<P>I think you have the wrong idea regarding the use of this forum. This is about MUSIC APPRECIATION. This is why I post here.<P>You may want to try another venue. How about GOD DOT COM!<P>Hey Dave. Crank up the volume!!

Re: TDTECF album cover

Yeah, I never heard of CB doing such a thing, but I know that ELO did it with their 1983 album, SECRET MESSAGES.<P>On that album cover, for example, there are fictitious advertisments whereby the band members names are mixed so as to spell something else. For example, there is a name, T.D. Ryan, whi...
