 One BBC's best known DJ's (besides John Peel) and who played loads of progressive rock Alan Freeman died recently (See KW's thread in forums)

 Of one of the many tributes is

The Tangent's Andy Tillison had this to say:
"Fluff (along with John Peel) was the best music teacher I ever had. I always wanted to write a piece of music he'd use as one of his Jingles. The end of In Earnest... that very last 3 second phrase was deliberately done for that purpose.
A funny and gentle soul whose voice and enthusiasm for 'our' music will remain with me for ever.

In our own tribute we will now be dedicating the forthcoming Tangent live album to his memory

Andy. "Not 'arf"

EDDIE JOBSON: News of an album entitled "Theme of Appreciation ~ A Worldwide Tribute to Eddie Jobson".
Just a month after Eddie Jobson opened his first-ever official Internet message forum in January 2006, a few of us who congregated there (and got to know each other as if we had been friends for many years) decided to make this CD for Eddie. Rather than imitate or interpret his great works, we agreed to pay tribute to him by contributing original pieces, ones showing how he has inspired us to stretch beyond our limitations and strive for the amazing levels of excellence he has demonstrated in every aspect of his work. Over the course of seven months, we received 15 contributions from 9 countries. Most contributors created new music especially for this CD, while some drew upon previously composed works that proved especially fitting for this album. In the course of making this CD, it developed into something greater than we ever imagined. We hope you get a similar sense when listening to this album. [Ben P Stein]

Mike Oldfield rerelease?

Voiceprint is known for re-releasing old material that ranges from "lost gems", to "highly dubious stuff best left buried"It remains to be seen in which category The Space Movie DVD release falls, as the 17-minute excerpt that appears on the Elements DVD is not as mind-blowing in this current CGI-ridden day and age, as it was back in 1980 when the Tony Palmer film was released. A film featuring the music of Mike Oldfield is to finally find its way onto DVD. The Space Movie chronicles man's longing for the stars and his dreams of journeying into space. The progress from weird and wonderful contraptions which barely got off the ground to man’s first moon landing is one of the most amazing of man’s achievements in the 20th Century. This film is a celebration of that achievement. All the footage in the film has been made specially available by NASA and The United States National Archive and includes never before seen footage of the lunar landscape. The films soundtrack was written and performed by Mike Oldfield and the films Space Symphony will have just as much appeal as Tubular Bells, Ommadwn, Hergest Ridge and Incantations.

 
Thomas Dolby live CD

Thomas Dolby
The Sole Inhabitant CD


Just when you think the 21st century might finally have caught up with Thomas Dolby, he takes another giant musical and technological leap. The artist who pioneered the marriage of technology and art, who first gave synthesizers soul, puts a camera in his brain and takes us on a visual trip inside his head, his heart, and his music; showing us at one and the same time where it came from and where it's going.

This live concert CD was recorded in May 2006 at the Martyrs in Chicago, IL. The sold out audience that night saw one of the best performances from Dolby's 'Sole Inhabitant' tour, which has thrilled crowds across the USA throughout the year.

The 'Sole Inhabitant' tour dates received high praise from critics. The Chicago Tribune wrote, “The audience seemed mesmerized by Dolby’s compositional and musical dexterity…Far from coming off as strictly a nostalgia act, the evening unfolded as a celebration of his past accomplishments and a harbinger for his future as a revitalized performer.” The Orange County Register added, “Most people’s knowledge of Dolby begins and ends with ‘She Blinded Me With Science,’ a sly slice of synth-funk from a superior album (The Golden Age of Wireless) whose variety and depth went far beyond its artificial surface. Indeed, for those who sought him out — certainly for scores of electronica acts who routinely cite him as an influence — Dolby was one-of-a-kind, a do-it-yourself electro wizard whose work conjured warmth and soul from machines whose output in other hands was pure digital chill.” The Washington Post summed it up: “When he whooshed into ‘Europa and the Pirate Twins,’ Dolby sounded startlingly relevant, no easy trick for a talented artist whose entire career is usually unfairly surmised in a single, shouted phrase.”
