  2. Where we are now: The site is back up and running! The character set encoding issue has been fixed so old posts should now look ok. I am currently working on themes/skins etc and I will be deleting the temporary green skin very soon as it has many issues. I will do a very quick variation on the stock blue skin first just to get a light-grey background and san-serif font, and I will set this as default. Later this week I will hopefully add a professional third-party skin in pfm colours (life is way too short to do this crap myself, and I've found one I really like than needs next to no tweaking). We are getting there slowly...

  3. May I please request people check and update their email address if it is out if date. I ask as I’m getting countless bounce errors as the server fails to send notifications through etc. I’ll eventually figure out how to send these to a black hole somewhere, but it makes sense to address it at source as quite a few folk are obviously not getting the thread and conversations notifications they have set in their preferences.

  4. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Eric Dolphy - Live in Europe vol. 3. Supposed to be one of the less essential Eric Dolphy releases, but still quite nice.

    We've bought ourselves the super whizzo boxset reissue of that as a Christmas present; but have amazingly managed to keep it wrapped up - only six days until it gets played.

    I don't own the vinyl of Astral Weeks Live at the Hollywood Bowl, but reckon the performance by him and the band is great, although I mostly prefer his vocal on the original.

    The Hollywood Bowl shows in 2008 were the first time Morrison had played Astral Weeks since it was recorded in New York 40 years earlier.

    The recording sessions in 1968 took place over two days, horns and strings were added afterwards. The musicians came from a jazz background and had worked with people like Eric Dolphy and Charles Mingus. Morrison used his acoustic guitar and sang the songs to the band, they then improvised and jammed the backing live.

    The Hollywood Bowl album sounds more deliberately organized, although there was only one rehearsal prior to the two gigs. Some critics think Morrison's performance is transcendent. It definitely isn't a bad album.
