  1. No, edit has disappeared as an option. As far as I can see. Not too bothered!
  2. Yeah I can’t work out how to edit the title thread
  3. There is a moment in the film version of Western Stars, its about 3.42....Bruce's voice meets the choir, meets the string section, meets the backing vocalists, and he sings 'Tonight the riders on Sunset are smothered in the Santa Ana winds...' And it is transendental It is beautiful, and I love it.
  4. No!!! I'd say the shoe was on the other foot, or glove on the other hand!
  5. This is a great listen, not a Bruce interview but rather 4 well known Irish Bruce fans talking about the music and the man, and playing 4 songs. An hour long. https://www.rte.ie/radio/radioplayer/html5/#/radio1/21645238
  6. That was class. I think virtually every song sounds better in this live setting. Bruce’s commentary or narrative in between songs is a bit on the heavy side! It’s beautifully shot, needs a big screen viewing. Small cinema in west Belfast about half full. Loved it.
  7. Haven’t seen this posted anywhere else, Bruce interviewed by Mark Radcliffe on BBC6 music, played last Saturday morning. You can forward to the Bruce section. It’s a good interview and features SJC, Western Stars and Tucson Train from the Soundtrack https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m0009kds
  8. Re Ireland next year.....hopefully it will be a re run of 2013, i.e a series of shows across the country, including Belfast , as opposed to a couple of nights in Dublin. And definitely not Croke Park, too big, sound not good enough. And definitely definitely not an emotional return to Slane - i can see the historical appeal but logistically its an awful venue. Got that Aikens??
  9. Tickets for a stadium show = no problem.
  10. This is a spellbinding performance of such a brilliant, important song.
  11. You may have seen this before, I had not. Its a charming piece from our man as he picks up his presentation from Ellis Island awards 2010 - with his Mom and Aunts onstage, he makes a lovely speech here, you might enjoy it.
  12. Link to last night's Radio Ulster special, this is worth listening to. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m0008jb0
