Hey Pepe.....you'll never guess....
@DavidAnderson Hahaha. Separated at birth, bro... :-D
What are the chances....
@DavidAnderson No idea ma' friend, but I'm off to buy a lottery ticket...just in case...
Absolute and indisputable love for this song... One of my very early first jams as well. LOVE.
@BladeRunner Well thank you, Miss Digger. It just gets better and better with every listen, doesn't it? :-D
@21schizoid it does! I even had the opportunity to see them live back in 99, a sea of people singing along to this... oh it gets mythical =D
@BladeRunner That's one beautiful image and memory...right there... ;-D
always good for a listen, good tunes stand the test of time..........
@totty01843 Can't argue with a word of that! :-D
Love it, great pick.
@brianberrington Thanks Brian!
Oh, you & @DavidAnderson ...telepathic! I haven't listened to E &TB for a while....and they haven't dated :-)
@debutch Haha. Indeed, DC. Me and Dave...quality double act!! Hadn't listened myself for a time. Glad to revisit though. A stunning band and yep, their sound totally stands the test of time... :-D
@pauseliveaction Far more succinct than I could ever be, SuzySue... ;-D
I was playing the album this weekend. Just wonderful.
@andypritchard Serendipity in action, Pritch!! :-D
I am with @pez....Perfection.. (of course I meant your ramblings also...)
@pez Unequivocal praise!! :-D
@christineb Haha. Thank ya' Chrissy. Your fleeting visit to my world, is always a joy... ;-D
Right from the magnificent intro, to the rambling guitar outro, an absolute slice of awesomness... plus a lovely piece of Schizoid waffle...
@ErnieBilko Why thank you kindly, Bilks. What a fine fella you are. I agree wholeheartedly with your description of this Bunny slice...magical... :-D
JAM. I bloody love this song :-)
@armstrongkath Thanks Kath. It's astoundingly wondrous, ain't it...
I played this to death back in the 80s.
@cwparker Me too, Carl. In fact, I might be doing it again now... :-D
Great tune, Mr B. You always do it with classy ;-)
Top stuff 21! Now, we've had this all out before mate. The 80's, a seemingly tricky decade for us old progtologists, yet when we delve back into it, we're surprised how rich it was. I for one am hoping that Japan feature fairly high in your list. Oh, you said both of us, who's the other one? :)
@florencevibert Thank you Florence. I'm not called classy too often, so I'm framing that comment!! ;-D
@Phyl Ah Phylsta', one of my two! I'm not going to 'out' the other member of Bristow Ramblings Society, for fear of reprisal. Your recall as ever, is flawless (if you could pay a bit less attention to what I say, I could at least get away with the odd thang). Now not too many months ago, I Jammed the excellent Mr Sylvian, but his solo cut, Red Guitar. A fine song it is too. Perhaps a Japan track will emerge. I dunno', so who the hell else will!! Progtologist...I'm borrowing that... ;-D
I saw your awesome username in the comments of @christineb and thought I shoul check out your jam, and you did not disappoint.
@lifeless1 Ithangu sir! I shall bestow the Followback right at ya'...
Hate to say it, but I don't think I've ever heard this before !!!
I'm guessing this would be from the '80s, which (I've probably said before!!!) musically was a fairly lean time for me. Not because of the quality of the music - just didn't seem to hear a lot of it for all sorts of very good reasons. But I'm very happy you're intro'ing me to some top toons - excellent jam Doc :-)
Nice Jam Pepe. I was a huge EATB fan back in the mid-late 80's - the height of their powers so to speak. Had the pleasure of playing a couple of tracks (Silver & one from their most recent album) on the radio a couple of months back. Good stuff!
Like Mike this sounds new to me although I know of Echo & the Bunnymen of course I just dont recall hearing this splendid song before, loved it..
Yep It doesn't get much better than this! Top tune Pepe :))
@teen Ta much! Glad you're up for those Bunnies...
@Sid_Bonkers Thank you Siddy. You, me and Mikey @mikelowe will get thru' this 80s reflection of mine...unscathed... :-D
@CaptainJam Why thank ya' skipper! :-D
@cbinseoul Cheers Craigy lad! Yep, the Bunnypersons were truly something in their pomp. As with lots of 80 s bands, I kinda' lost my way with them, though I and everyone else can still luxuriate in this braw stuff... :-D
If not their finest hour then certainly their finest 5.50!
@Cranky Haha. We find ourselves in agreement yet again, young sir!
....and I might add, this always takes me to Donnie Darko, one of my favourite films ❤️
Mr. B, I have appreciated the introductions you and the fellow "progtologists" (nice call @Phyl) have bestowed upon me (Floyd was about my only foray into the genre), and I certainly enjoy when you have imparted your favorite tunes from my most formative decade, the 80s). For a second I questioned, "this can't be the best tune of the 80s?", but I must say after a period of reflection, I don't think I can name a better one. Fine work as always, sir.
@DavidAnderson Zactly! No bad thing that, bud!! :-D
@kfarrnd Blimey Kev, thought I was gonna get a telling off there!! ;-D Firstly, you are most welcome to the collective prog wisdom from us crusty types. Secondly, @Phyl has produced a cracking word there. Thirdly, I'm sure we'd be festooned with 'better' 80s toons, from many quarters, but I'd wager few would argue about this being one of the very best! Thanks for another brilliant input ma' friend... :-D
Always one of my favorites, fantastic choice!
@victoriaozelle Cheers Vic! :-D
So glad you liked my last Jam mate, thanks. That birth thing. I'm quite sure we didn't share a Mother, but me Dad, well that's much more of a possibility, tho he never said he'd been north of the border. :) You're welcome to adopt 'progtolosist' too mate. Cheers :)
@Phyl Hahaha. Always welcome. We'll leave our parental situation, as one of life's little mysteries, sir! I'm saving progtologist for a suitably erudite post...could be a while then...you will of ciurse receive credit. If nothing else, I refuse to be an anonymous plagiarist... ;-D
@21schizoid Hahahaha!! You see, never say never... ;-))
@florencevibert I'm aiming for debonair...watch this space... ;-D
