Defining CB albums

I would like to return to the kind of topics I used to put up as a newbie at this forum some 14 years ago! I came to think of these stickers on the Abba reissues, where each album is given an epithet, Arrival is called "The Classic Album" and Voulez-Vous "The Dynamic Album" for example. I thought th...

2016 CB interview!

When searching for CB stuff at eBay I found a very interesting press cutting, originally published in Sweden Rock Magazine (March 2016). This article, consisting of 7 pages, is based on new interviews with all 1978/79 era members, except Max. The fact even Lol is participating is sensational enough!...

Re: Interview with Mike Slamer

If you mean the one below, about a year ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4mfmWp078lc Thanks, I wanted to know because in this later interview, Mike seems a lot of more willing to talk about the years in City Boy compared to the former interview ten years ago. That's a move in the right directio...

Re: New City Boy cover

Thanks Piet for providing us with this cover!

I think LAD did a good job! Pretty close to the original but still nice to hear a slightly different version!

As said in another thread, good to see the board is still keeping up with new CB-related material :cheers:

40 Years Ago Today: Swedish Radioshow "Poporama"!

For all lovers of Swedish Radioshow "Poporama", here is a site loaded with cassette recordings of the show, including the one which was broadcasted on this very day 40 years ago (a Friday back then). You will find some classic songs in that particular show which was aired in stereo for the first tim...

Mario Vargas Llosa and City Boy

I just happened to notice a strange coincidence between Peruan author (and Nobel Prize winner) Mario Vargas Llosa and City Boy. In 1981, the same year as It's Personal was released, Vargas Llosa's novel "La guerra del fin del mundo" was published. Or was it really a coincidence? Could Lol perhaps be...

Misprinted lyrics?

There seems to be a difference between what the printed lyrics says and what is actually sung in "The Greatest Story Ever Told": The print says: Around her neck, was draped a snake, she held him to her And on her arm, a silver charm, with Roman numbers He saw an eye gleaming like a coal and breathin...

Re: 40th Anniversary of the first two albums

OK, the mighty Duck has consulted his sacred diaries and has some answers to your mysteries!!! The following dates only apply to the UK unless otherwise noted. A single was released on 10/3/75 which I assume was "Shake My Head And Leave". The first album was released 2/20/76. The second single: "Do...

Re: My Fantasy 2006 Vertigo City Boy Series Reissue

Totally agree with that. Nice work! I'm specially amazed how they pulled off a cover like DATR decades before photoshop!! :D As a matter fact, I mailed a question to the photographer Paul Wakefield himself and got this reply back: It was a tricky set-up and long before Photoshop as you rightly say....
