Your home page just prompted me to put Journey - Don't Stop Believing on - love that song! Anyway, GP time.

 

Ho yeah. Although Separate Ways (Worlds Apart) is my favourite........

Separate Ways (Worlds Apart) Oh yes! Love it, love it, love it! What a cracking way to open an album. Send Her My Love and Faithfully are two more classics from that lp. Do you cover Separate Ways?

This is my second favourite Eagles album. If anyone has only got Hotel California and the Eagles Best Of/Greatest Hits then this really is worth adding to your collection.

Chance would be a fine thing. We're toying with the idea of adding keyboards (if I buy one), and that would be first on the list. I was introduced to Journey by this track, played on Paul Gambaccini's Saturday afternoon show years ago, which was how my love affair with ARS (American Rock S--- as my brother calls it) began. This track, on a Rega Planet/Mira combo, might very well be the most fun I've ever had with hifi..............

Though of course that was a joke. Did you enjoy them? I can't be objective about them, since I'd go back and do them all again - we did do each "album" in the space of about four hours, after all. Apart from "....Downfall", which I'm still quite proud of.

Joking aside, I thought they were really fine. But then have always enjoyed a good pub-rock band.

Funny enough it was the first Journey track I heard too. Used to rent a room in a house where a music journalist also rented. He had two promo copies of the Frontiers album and he gave me a copy as he thought I`d probably like it. Liked it so much I went out and bit by bit collected their back catalogue. To this day I blame British radio for not playing this band enough and making me miss out on ten years of Journey. If you ever do cover it I may come and see your band! (live near Watford)
