bazbo 0314: Gary Moore – Rockin’ Every Night – Live In Japan
Geinige liveplaat van meneer Moore, toen hij gelukkig nog in zijn hardrockperiode zat. Oorspronkelijk verschenen in 1983 in Japan, maar vanaf 1986 ook verkrijgbaar in de rest van de wereld. Ik heb een Europese versie en kocht die op 4 november 1986. In het gezelschap van Moore niet de minsten: Don Airey, Ian Paice en Neil Murray, bijvoorbeeld. Ene John Sloman zingt (bij vlagen nogal vals) en godzijdank is Moore zelf lekker bij stem, al zit hij er af en toe ook naast. Het gitaarwerk daarentegen messcherp en gedegen. Mooie versies van White Knuckles en Wishing Well, maar ik vind het lange I Can’t Wait Until Tomorrow het hoogtepunt van de plaat. Lekker om weer terug te horen. We want Moore!


bazbo 0313: Tony Monopoly – Tony Monopoly
Tony Monopoly (1944 – 21 March 1995) was an Australian-born cabaret singer and actor who enjoyed success in the United Kingdom. Born Antonio Rosario Monopoli in Adelaide, he was a regular on the national radio show, Kangaroos on Parade at the age of nine as a boy soprano. At the age of sixteen he became a Carmelite monk and remained in the order for five years. During the 1960s he regularly performed with Edwin Duff and Norm Erskine, as a trio of singers, on In Melbourne Tonight and Tonight with Don Lane. In 1975 he was appearing at Caesar’s Palace in Luton when he auditioned for Opportunity Knocks, a British television talent show, for a run of six appearances. In June 1976, his self-titled album peaked at No. 25 in the UK Albums Chart. In a national pre-selection to choose the song that would go to the Eurovision Song Contest, held on 9 March 1977 at the New London Theatre, Monopoly earned 66 points and placed ninth with the tune Leave a Little Love. By the early 1980s Monopoly performed aboard cruise liners, “I lived on one yacht for a year,” he said. “I went to 56 countries. I had champagne for breakfast. But I hated it”. When fulfilling his increasingly rare engagements on dry land, he divided his time between Australia and the UK. Monopoly was head-hunted for a musical while appearing in Cinderella at Hanley, near Stoke-on-Trent. He starred – in drag – in Moby Dick, the inaugural production at the newly refurbished Old Fire Station Theatre in Oxford. The show’s success prompted Cameron Mackintosh to mount a 1992 West End production, which opened to scathing reviews and promptly closed, after which Monopoly portrayed Old Deuteronomy in a UK tour of Cats. Monopoly died in Brighton, England on 21 March 1995. Aldus Wikipedia. De Vrouw kocht dit en ze vindt I Believe het mooiste lied. 


bazbo 0312: George Michael – Careless Whisper (12″ single)
Godzijdank kocht De Vrouw (vér voor mijn tijd) de maxisingle en is het met tien minuten voorbij.
