Future 'Classic Tracks'? new
      #991304 - 05/06/12 12:53 AM
Don't know if this has already been done or not, but is it possible to suggest songs for the 'Classic Tracks' column? Perhaps a list could be compiled here or somewhere else where readers can make suggestions.

For myself, since we're coming up on the 25th anniversary, I'd LOVE to see on article on "Under the Milky Way" by The Church.

Indeed. Or for that matter ANY tracks from Voice of an Angel

While Voice Of An Angel is undoubtedly a classic, I feel that a Classic Tracks article about it at this time would be a little premature. Perhaps in a decade or so we will better understand the full magnitude of its impact upon culture and, indeed, upon civilisation itself. Until then I think it would be best if we were to remain in reverent but silent awe.

Here are some I would like to read about:

- 'Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)' by Eurythmics (recorded on 8-track, I believe?)

- 'Once in a Lifetime' by Talking Heads and that wee bald fella out of Roxy Music

- the 1963 Dr Who theme tune (Delia Derbyshire & Dick Mills)

8-track indeed ... and one of these...



Movement Drum Computer (although he used a Mk1 in the Sweet Dreams video)

Now that's what I call a drum machine!

I'd like to see an account of how Robert Palmer's 'Addicted to Love' was created. I always understood it was mostly done on a fairlight except the drum track, which was proper live. That juxtapose gave the sound its special, instantly recognisable quality. I'd love to know how true that is and more about how that decision came to be.

Strictly project and just for fun

Yeah. Bizarrely, the only time I ever saw one of these was at an auction site near where my folks live in county Down, circa 1994.
There amoungst the tractors and used filing cabinets and picture frames was a liquidation batch from Belfast's Crymbles music shop... in amoungst gubbins was the rusting hulk of one of these. Christ knows what they'd been doing to it all those years - pouring coffee over it or something. I expect it went in a skip. Given that there were only a few dozen of the things ever made (?) seemed a very ignominious end...

That's a blast from the past!
I spent many happy hours and a few quid in Crymbles in my youth.

In my mind, Crymbles and Session Music are a bit of a blur now..... one of them used to have an enormous "Moog Synthesizer Amp" and 6 foot bass bin and massive tweeter horn on the left hand wall as you walked in.....

Session Music moved to a bizarre location on Donegal Pass? Where to get to it you had to walk past police snipers and a whole street of spides... or alternatively traipse through the derelict no-mans land between the Holy Lands and the Limelight...
But hey, I guess that's now the amazingly revitalised Odyssey Area area now.
