  1. Listen to LTY a number of times now and I love it, best since GOTJ in my opinion. What a gift he has given us in these dark times.
  2. Good morning to you, Whanganui! Listening to that was a great way to start a long weekend
  3. Just had my first listen and I am excited, left me wanting more, which I take as a good thing
  4. For being born a few years too late and in the wrong country to catch a '78 show!
  5. Mrs Kiwi who is a big JBJ fan said she had heard that Bruce had somehow "helped" with the new album. I searched Google and couldn't find anything about it so told her JBJ would be so lucky! Now, do I let on that I have seen this thread???
  6. Yeah I got both on vinyl, got Candy-O first and quickly went out and bought the first, can remember my parents telling me to turn that racket down! Ben certainly had charisma, I can sure appreciate his appeal!
  7. Got the original vinyl as well. As a 15 year old boy at the time, I was quite taken with the artwork!
  8. Love the first two albums, must admit Heartbeat City left me a little cold, a bit too slick. But the first two are masterpieces - especially love the Shoo Be Doo/Candy-O combination, the sparseness of the former and then blasting into the latter, pure genius!
  9. Devastated! He made rock exciting again with that guitar! RIP
  10. I am unsure at this point about the 2 songs released, musically they certainly haven't reached out and grabbed me by the throat. I do like the sentiment of the lyrics and I am very keen to hear the album in its entirety and give it a good listen. But whether or not I end up liking this album, I want Bruce to put out new music for as long as he can and wants to because that next release may be one that resonates with me and give me that kick inside. Plus I also love the thrill of anticipation when a new album is announced.
  11. Proud to share my birthday with this man, thanks Bruce for restoring my faith in music again and for 5 amazing shows! Happy Birthday Bossman
  12. Hello Daisey, how is Wangas? Do we know if Bruce knows how to text, he is a senior citizen. After a number of listens the song has grown on me and are really anticipating the album.
  13. Happy birthday to my hero, the man who made me feel the magic again. Sail on brother!
  14. Hi Daisey, thanks for the shout out! Had a great day and Mrs Kiwi spoilt me rotten!
  15. Yeah, thought of him but also wondered if it was a reference to Pete Ham of Badfinger who had died earlier that year
  16. Hi all. Anyone know who is "Pete" that Bruce mentions before It's Hard to be a Saint?
  17. This was bothering me too. Was thinking that there must be something wrong with me, like maybe I had lost that lovin feeling
  18. Yes, I keep hearing songs from Magic or WOAD both of which I weren't keen on so maybe that explains why this one is lukewarm for me
  19. So, I ain't alone... Have had a number of listens and am not getting the fever that most on here are. It will join the growing list of original albums that I never listen to, starting from the Rising through to this one (excluding the Seegar sessions which I love). Probably part of the problem for me is that it ain't country enough. The country influence is minimal to my ears. To me it is a crooning album which is not my cup of tea. Am really into Don Henley's Cass County at the mo, now that is a country album! Just not me I guess, am happy for Bruce and the majority of fans that are really getting into it. Cheers
  20. Sadly, I agree with Bobby after my first listen to the album. Very bland IMO
  21. Spouses, eh Daisey! Have been out all day today and Mrs Kiwi text me late this afternoon telling me that she had had an uneventful day and had no news. I get home this evening and see my Auckland tickets have arrived. No news???
