Bit like Pete really. There is everything on my Ipod from George Formby, to Gorillaz. I do however have a particullar liking for Alan Parsons, and film & TV music.

Ade, Is that Alan Parsons of 'Don't answer me' fame? Top track if it is.

hugh mc dowell, E.L.O

simon berry ,art.of .trance

mauve, ultravynil

kenny jones, too many artists to name

brian ferry

delerium

so luckily i get ot hear all the songs and work on them before they come out so i have a massive collection of stuff here on cds and multitrack the only thing im not into is stuff like heavy/death metal and cheesy pop crap a'la sclub 7 etc..

i would love to hot link a couple of my tracks but getting permission isnt easy and i dont fancy a copyright suit! but one of my best ones is "love washes over-pherik remix" on the platipus label if you want a listen, that went top 40 on release and was on every major cd compilation that year.

edit: heres the hot link to the love washes lo res demo from the labels site, im allowed this one :Phttp://www.platipus.co.uk/audio/wma/JUL028.wax

Alan Parsons also engineered Pink Floyd's "The Dark Side of the Moon" album. Sold a few copies if I remember correctly.

Peter.

I'm a classical pianist and I'm a composer also, so...

only classical music for me.

There is a English composer, one of the biggest Genius of all time.

His name is Benjamin Britten, my favourite composer.

Anyone knows him?

List of his masterworks:

Violin Concert

Choral music (various)

Peter Grimes

The turn of the screw

Saint Nicholas

Les illuminations

Death in Venice :getmecoat::blush: :blush:

Ive got them all on CD now from 1976's Tales of Mystery & Imagination, to 2004"s A valid Path. I know the concept album has fallen out of favor recently but the quality of production and engineering on AP albums is top notch, as well as the songwriting.

For any lovers of 70's era rock have you checked out this?

Wolfgangs Vault

Started out as the tape archive of Bill Graham who ran the Fillmore venues in USA and taped all his gigs, but also includes the old King Biscuit Flower Hour tapes and more.

You're only supposed to be able to stream them, but if you play them while running a sound editing program in record mode (I use Cooledit pro) then they'll record to your hard drive.

The Pink Floyd concert from 1977 is truly awesome (listen to Roger Waters and Dave Gilmour laughing at each other during Have A Cigar), and there are 2 Early Zep gigs which are good too. Have a scout around and enjoy...............


Regards

Mat

Re Alan Parsons Project. I actually had Ammonia Avenue, which was a great album (Only on pre-recorded tape unfortunately). Don't answer me was from this album I seem to remember. The title track was great. The whole point of them was that it tended to be a different set of session musicians each time didn't it, and the common thread was Alan Parsons himself. I seem to remember Colin Blunstone (sp?) was the vocalist on Ammonia Avenue.

This is a bit like one of my all time favourite bands (sounds like a crap DJ talking), and that's The Divine Comedy. The line up changes, but the common thread is Neil Hannon, singing and writing.

The Alan Parson Project consisted of Alan Parsons & Eric Woolfson, when Woofson left in the early 90's the Albums just went under Alan Parson name. You are right in that the rest of the band is made up of session musicians and singers. Singers are choosen if their voice fits the feel of the song, likewise with musicians. I especially like the instrumental tracks.

The other day I was looking around eBay, as you do, and happened to do a search for "records"...this turned out to be vinyl LPs, mainly, and the first one listed was a Bill Evans/ Jim Hall collaboration entitled "Intermodulation"...for £200!! Crikey....I'm sure I have that...so I had a look in the cabinet and there it was. Hmmm. Wonder what else is worth a bob or two? So I went through half the collection and, judging from the prices asked for on eBay, that would cost me over £2000 to replace. Madness. Of course, there's a world of difference between that and realising the money!! Does seem that I've invested my pocket money well, though....

The valuable stuff was things like Davy Graham "Folk, Blues and Beyond" and some of the more esoteric jazz....boxed sets of opera were valueless, by comparison. Must admit that, these days, I tend to play rather than listen...creation is more rewarding than consumption, any day.
