Re: The Perfect Road Mix CD

Actually, I've recently been attempting to make a heavy rock CD mix, as well!<P>It is quite difficult to put together a mix of songs that seem to fit together well, especially when mixing in a multitude of bands.<P>I give credit to record producers . I made 3 CDs (and threw them out) before I made a...

TDTECF album cover

I was wondering whether the album cover artwork to TDTECF may be tied in to previous CB songs.<P>For example, from Book Early, you have the two "Cigarettes" on the street and the fire beneath the road makes for "Dangerous Ground." <P>The shadow on the sidewalk may be the result of "Moonlight," and T...

Re: bad day at work

You have to be kidding? You never play music loudly? In the car perhaps?<P>Do you use the lawnmower to cut your grass? Do you have a barking dog? My neighbors do!<P>And they have all-night beer binge parties in the summer...with loud music.<P>And very loud, screaming kids. And loud motorcycles.<P>If...

bad day at work

Yeah, another bad day at work <P>So, now my neighbors have heard those two CB lps. I hope they liked them as they had no choice but to listen.<P>Does CB have this effect on anyone else? Talk about great music!! I didn't have to drink myself into oblivion. :p <P>Sorry to vent. Had to tell someone.<P>...

Re: When/how I first heard CB's music

Hi Rogel,<P>You're English is better than you give yourself credit for!<P>I, too, am a 'big' Beatles fan. I was only 10 years old when they broke up and I didn't really start listenting to them until I was 12. I guess from what you've said in you're message that you must have been around 12 when you...

Re: When/how I first heard CB's music

Hi Hjalb,<P>I must agree with you about the passion we share for music. Yes we all love City Boy, but we are from the same generation where music meant something very real within our lives. <P> There was a mystique to music then, unlike now where there is no cohesiveness among the young crowd for th...

When/how I first heard CB's music

The year was 1977. <P>My friend JT bought the DATR album and one Friday night, with little else to do, our gang of 6 got together at JT's house to drink beer (17 and oh so cool).<BR> <BR>Then it happened...he pulled out the album and cranked up the volume!<P>For the other 5 of the gang it was new mu...

Re: CB fan

I wish CB had been able to attract a larger fan base because maybe they would have been together a bit longer. Clearly, their music was great but they didn't have the marketing muscle to propel themselves to more sales.<P>This gives me an idea for a new topic!- Thanks Ari.

Re: favorite band/artist and where CB fits in

Hey Progman,<P>I think I can speak for every City Boy fan when I say...WELCOME BACK! CB made some great music and really got cheated by not making it in a big way. <P>I have introduced people to their music and almost everyone agrees that they were more than just an average band.<P>later

Re: AOR- Adult, or Album Oriented Rock?

Hello, Lee G and Geir,<P>I'm not certain I'm thinking of the same thing here when you mention album-oriented-rock, however, in the 70s I recall bands producing what they referred to as "concept albums." In other words, all the songs were tied into some theme which carried through the album musically...

Re: No ladies!

I've only known two CB fans, as well, none female. <P>However, last month my wife asked me to put on some music and I put in a Jackson Browne CD. She said it was too depressing and asked me to put in something else, so I put in the DATR tape. She wasn't sure what it was but thought that was a vast i...

Re: favorite band/artist and where CB fits in

Hey cockatootoo... I agree about Elton. I never get tired of his stuff. I remember as a kid in the early 70s how his music seemed to define the times- esp. Madman and Caribou LPs. <P>I think his 2001 CD 'Songs From The West Coast' was an instant classic. Have you heard it? If not, I could burn it.

Re: favorite band/artist and where CB fits in

You know, now this is really getting tough! Your challenge, Cockatootoo, is a hundred times more difficult than picking out CB's best songs. <BR> <BR>In my teens, ELO was my all-time favorite band. I even bought second LPs, some of which have never been played yet. I don't think ELO is still by top ...

Hello, Ari, Lee G and Dave.

In fact some of those are actually my top picks!<P>I really like the Momm...
