"Under The Mily Way" and "Reptile" were two of the first songs I learned to play on guitar. I also liked GOLD AFTERNOON FIX, but SOMETIME ANYWHERE is the last one I bought and I wasn't crazy about it.

I'm not sure anyone was too crazy about SA. It was a tough time for them (or the two who remained at the time). I would recommend their newest "proper" album Uninvited, Like The Clouds as it is more reminiscent of their late 80s/early 90s work than most other recent albums.

Check out their Myspace page too as it has three songs from ULTC (Block; Day 5; and She'll Come Back For You Tomorrow -- listed as just Tomorrow on Myspace) and one (Song in the Afternoon -- a sunny little song) from their recent acoustic blend cd El Momento Siguiente. EMS (and it's predecessor El Momento Descuidado ) are also very cool acoustic reworkings of many of their songs with a few new songs sprinkled in (three newies on EMS; five on EDM). Here's the Myspace link

There's a video for Easy (also from ULTC) on YouTube. Click here for that one.

Thanks for the info; I like Song In The Afternoon a lot; I wasn't crazy about Block but the other two are good as well. I'll have to look up some of these albums; the acoustic ones would probably be my favorites.

Great version of Grind on EMS. And you'll hardly recognise Reptile! They did kind of a jazz/swing version -- there is a live video of it on their Myspace page. They made up the new version on the fly one night on their 2006 US tour when MWP left during the very first song (either a massive migrane or a massive hissy fit, depending on which story you believe) and the others plowed on. The did this piano driven version without him that night and then played it a few other times with MWP on guitar at other shows. It's a very fun version.

SK sounds great on the acoustic albums. His voice doesn't get overpowered.

What I noticed about his vocals on Song In the Afternoon is that it has not changed at all since Starfish - and that is a good thing. His voice perfectly complements Marty and Peter's guitarscape and the combination is what makes their music what it is. The lyrics and tunes are great, but it's the way the mix each others part that makes it stand out. I've already looked up some of their later releases and I see that several of their old albums have been re-issued in deluxe versions (which I've always wanted U2 to do). I've got two versions of the "Milky Way" single - a cassette single with "Musk" and "Warm Spell," and a 3" CD with Destination and "Milky Way"" acoustic, and I see that some of these are on the 2CD Starfish.

Hey, that's MY vacation plan!!!


I'm really hoping to go to Ireland later on in the year, possibly around October



The last time I was there was about .... hmmm ... 12 years ago. So it's about time for another visit!! I'm soooo excited with the idea of it. With any luck, I can spend at least a couple months there, catching up with wonderful friends and travellin' around a bit.

Getting ready to leave today to my mom's vacation house at Fripp island resort South Carolina to go to the beach
Got my ipod and my cd's ready and hopefully husband's work laptop with a dvd player, can watch movie's in the car with wireless internet but there's no signal on that island ready for a 5 hour road trip
We didn't get to go a few weeks ago but are going now.
Going to go to the swimming pools, whirlpool, tiki bars, resteraunts, boutiques, there's golf courses and tennis courts but I've never played golf or tennis there and have never played golf ever but I would like to do that sometime.
It's going to be 89 degrees there on tuesday
I'm on an island in a busy intersection

Going to Edmonton in a couple weeks, renting a cottage in the Muskokas (northern Ontario) in August and then in the fall off to either Italy or Cuba...

I don't really have the time or money to go anywhere this summer, so it'll all be small local trips with friends around New England, camping on the Cape, etc. I don't really count when I go visit people where I used to live in Michigan as vacation.
