Re: Collaborative Spotify Playlist - Contribute!

I haven't been on Spotify in a long time. So I just downloaded the program and logged in. I followed Per's instruction and clicked on the 3 dots but I csn only add songs to my own lists. I found the CBforum when I scrolled down but don't know how to add anything to it. I don't remember how to do it ...

Re: RIP David Bowie

You did beat me to it this time, Bertrand as it is usually me who starts the RIP threads. Strangely enough I have felt it coming for the last couple of years so I'm not as much in shock as I supposed most anybody else does. Having certain abilities can be both a blessing and a curse. I also have the...

40th Anniversary of the first two albums

I have googled around for a while but could only find the year of release 1976. Anyone have any ideas when CB and DATR was actually released, day and month? Just so that I know when to start celebrate. I figure the first one was released in early 76 and the other later the same year.

Re: Expanding the reach of the City Boy brand name

I especially loved the last one. Now I'm trying to imaging playing various old games but with actual City Boy music in the background. Of course old style electronic versions of your old songs. :)

Re: Nightmare in Paris

I didn't know exactly where you lived. I'm glad you survived. Personally I think there will be more attacks in coming weeks and months. Try to avoid public transports. If you need to get to work, use cars instead and drive with collegues together instead. You can split the gas bill later. Avoid mall...

Re: article from Prog Magazine : how prog were City Boy ?

I have already wasted my time on the review of the recent reissues. So enjoy the main article and interview with Mike but skip the reviews just like TS suggests.

Re: The first four albums: New reissues due in July.

Another thing I remember from the loner notes is the background to firing Roger Kent. We all know that Mutt didn't think he was good enough but at least I didn't know that Mutt did set his terms in the case. Unless they'd let him go, he wouldn't produce any more records with the band. To Roger's def...

Re: The first four albums: New reissues due in July.

One thing I have been thinking of lately is that there's an odd number left. I don't know how CRR are going to handle it. Are they going to release them as single albums or go for TDTECF and HAR as one double and IP as a single album? Personally I think it would be nice with triple batch if that can...
