My impression of the Suite was that I enjoyed it, but I don't know if it had the impact I had hoped. The audience never seemed to get it. There was too much noise and talking which seem to diminish the impact of presentation. I wish I had been in symphony hall in salt lake city to hear it because I am sure the accoustics of a hockey arena where I was would have an adverse impact. The richness of the sound could not fully be appreciated imho. I did love the impact of Sail on Sailor and its transition to the next song and the outright beauty of Prayer. I have found that a boot I have of the suite really feels better at night with the lights off and the headphones on. Thanks VDP for another wonderful experience. dave marshall > I've seen alot of comments on the Wilson Suite.... > glowingly good, bad, informed, enlightened, downright > stupid or mean-spirited. They're all correct as far as I > know, if "beauty is in the eye of the beholder". > --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Message: 2 Date: Thu, 05 Oct 2000 11:31:14 +1000 From: Mullins Geoff Subject: Red Bird /Blue Cat Dear Members: I am new to Spectropop. I am interested in corresponding with anyone who has an interest in the Red Bird & Blue Cat labels. I have a particular interest in the rarer releases towards the end of the life of the labels. Regards, Geoff Mullins --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Message: 3 Date: Tue, 10 Oct 2000 12:13:18 +0900 From: Des Burkinshaw Subject: Phil Spector / BBC programme "Unlocked" What a great site! I bet you guys can help! I'm producing a TV series for the BBC in England for transmission next year, (Unlocked - 25x15min episodes - each one about one classic song) and I'm desperate to include Phil Spector. I know the chances of getting him to contribute are minimal, but I've got to try. Does anyone out there know who manages him or where his HQ is? You can call me on the BBC switchbaord in London on (omitted from archived message) or email me at (omitted >from archived message) if you have any info. We'll be in the States later this month for about 2 weeks. All the best DES --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Message: 4 Date: Tue, 10 Oct 2000 12:17:05 +0900 From: Chris King Subject: DA DOO RON RON club night re-locates to Brighton Dear Spectropopsters:- I am extremely chuffed to announce that after a 5 month hiatus, Da Doo Ron Ron is to phoenix once again.
