Re: Francis Lai 1932 - 2018

I've just listened to BBC Radio 4's obituary show 'The Last Word' which this week featured Francis Lai (pronounced 'Lie') and they played a powerful piece of his that was originally from the soundtrack of 'Un Homme et une Femme' and which was adapted for use as the theme to BBC TV's current affairs...

Re: Woman

I am ignorant of which corporate entity now owns the rights to the old A&M catalogue, but I have a couple of suggestions for whichever it is: 1. A re-issue of Woman including any unreleased instrumentals as well as the three other Bacharach / Titus songs, "Amnesia", "Chicago Fare...

Re: New Elvis Costello album

I'm going to stick my neck out and predict that the version on the album of 'He's Given Me Things' is going to be a whole lot better than that live rendition. Here's another one of those three tracks that have been put out ahead of the album's official release next month, 'Unwanted Number': https:/...

Thanks for the "heads up" Hank !

Re: R.I.P. ... Vincent Cole

This is shocking news, Vincent and I chatted many times over the phone about Burt, he was a great concert goer and a very kind man and a dear friend, I'm devastated to hear this.
My thoughts are with his wife Cheryl, family and friends.

RIP Vincent,I'll miss you....mon ami.
