Oh yes, Mistress and Maid, not overly keen on that one either!

I really like Golden Earth Girl, I know the lyrics are a bit cringy, but that melody! Also near the beginning when the bass kicks in on "moonlight in the air" (is that the right lyric?), it sounds great. Essentially it's obviously a rehash of Warm And Beautiful, but of course, as Paul would testify, there's nothing wrong a bit of (re)hash now and again :puker

So, I've come across something I don't have, and iTunes is being annoying by not letting me buy it as I'm not in the US.

Anyone know where I can get hold of the iTunes London Festival album from 2007 (Either download or CD)? I've tried my usual not-quite-legit websites for a download but can't find one :cry:

As far as I know it's only available as an iTunes download. I've bought a couple of tracks from it, but not the whole thing. "House of Wax" is particularly nice!

I have it, I can put it on wetransfer or something and PM you the link if you like? Can you do that with itunes store-bought files?

James you are an absolute star! Thanks for this, whether it would work or not probably depends on when you bought it (the more recently it was bought the less likely it is that there will be any DRM on the files, so hopefully you didn't buy it too recently!). Whatever method that's good for you would be great, thanks again! :-BD

I think I got it back in 2007, so we'll see. But I'll send you a PM. (Mike, you didn't see any of this :wink: )

if i'm not mistaken...a while back, that priviledge was reserved for those who became a 'supporter' of the site (note the big, colorful box some have below their names on the right hand side...)

...you could try to 'donate' using the button at the top of your screen...located betwix the 'maccaradio' and the 'faq' buttons

..'course...i've been known to be wrong once in a blue moon...even when i'm not near kan-tuk-ee
lift up your head...and remember what your life is !

Edging ever closer to the end.....

Chaos And Creation remains a fantastic album, lots of happy memories for me, and whilst it contains highs and lows, the lows are not that bad at all!

Just finishing off the bonus tracks now for MAF, and I've got mixed feelings. What a stunning album, but how frustrating that one song, just one song, stops it from being an absolute masterpiece. Remove Gratitude, and replace it with 222, and there you have an album that is one of the very highlights of his solo career. Love it.


I wonder if I can get a pristine copy of "Struggle" (the very last song of this whole journey), rather than the disappointing YouTube rip, before I get to it?
