  2. If life was fair, Mark Hollis would be universally hailed as one of the greatest songwriters of the rock era. Talk Talk have always been one of my favorite 80s bands, and I think this is by far their best album (though I love them all). And I'm really looking forward to hearing the remixes!

  3. Thanks so much for all the great music!!

    Curious... do you know the original sources for these four tracks on the remix disc? I'd (wrongly) thought myself a bit of a Talk Talk completist, but I'll be darned if I can figure out what 12"s, etc. these originally came from...

    6:38 - It's My Life (12" Mix)
    10:30 - Such a Shame (Special Mix)
    8:06 - It's My Life (Remix)
    13:34 - Such A Shame (US Long Version)

    Thanks very much in advance.

    1. Hey, Pete! And a Happy New Year to you, too. All is well on my front, and my family is doing great, too. My wife has finally started her business and the site is up and going. You can find her at -

      We are hoping for some success and a lasting future, depending on who all needs editing done!

      I am happy to hear from you. I'd always felt something of a kinship with you, whenever you made comments. You're one that seemed to have exactly the right words to say, and could almost read my mind at times. I appreciate your input. So, needless to say, when I got the alert that you had commented, I had to respond.

      Admittedly, I have avoided this blog like the plague. I really overdid it, and really burned myself out. I honestly don't even visit any music blogs at all right now. I just needed a hard break. Lord knows how long it will last. Right now, I've drifted back into comic books, and dabbling a bit in Tokusatsu since the new Kamen Rider came out. Plus, with Star Wars on the screen again, I've started reading some of my old Sci-Fi novels from the 80s, once again. Always a fan of Frank Herbert, but also check out Julian May. Nothing current, but her Pliocene Exile quadrilogy from the 80s is spectacular.

      It's really good to hear from you...

    2. PS -

      Hey Pete, send me an email when you get a chance.

    3. I would if I could find an email address for you anywhere so, mine is peterooney345:gmail.com if you want to start the ball rolling that way. I loved the Pliocne Exile quadrology when it came out (yes, I really AM that old) but didn't she do three books after that too? I also loved the David Eddings series and The Magician books by Raymond Feist. I'd be happy to correspond from Manchester to wherever you are, but perhaps here isn't the appropriate forum. Great news from your end - take it easy and only come back to this when you're good and ready. Your health and your family ALWAYS come first. Looking forward to hearing from you! :-)

    4. Obviously there should be an @ sign in my email address - I don't want to end up being spammed by a rogue Sisters of Mercy bot or something equally horrendous.

  6. Just jumping on the band wagon here, I just flew back to Shanghai from my home city Cape Town yesterday - feel jet lagged as ever, but being home with family over Christmas was worth ever minute of jet lag. Have a great New Year and thanks for the Music as they say. Life in China last year was made that one bit brighter.

  9. Hi KC2! How is your life? I hope it is as much as you want. I read in an earlier comment that you're into SciFi novels. Have you tried Fredric Brown's "What mad universe"? I couldn't keep from reading it till the end.
    Hugs brother from the end of this rock.
