I'm still in Oktavism Wonderland, so I'm saying merry Christmas to all of you with a passage from Rachmaninov's St. Chrysostom with some truly amazing basses:

I'm still in Oktavism Wonderland and I still don't care if everybody else thinks I'm crazy. Should anybody find my marbles, please keep them. Life is so much better without 8-)

The Male Choir of St. Petersburg featuring the late Vladimir Pasjukov, with Chesnokov's Cherubic Hymn

Shocking Blue, an old Dutch group. See to get a best of in trying to avoid all the fillers. One of my fave songs: California Here I Come.

I just found this video on youtube, I had searched for it for hours some years ago and couldn't find it, now I've found it again :D :D :D

It's a short snippet of Bowie with Tin Machine doing an accoustic cover of "If There Is Something", the video quality is horrible, the song is much too short, but it's absolutely fantastic:

Does anybody know if they ever released an accoustic version of this? (Honestly I'm not too big a fan of their regular studio and live versions of ITIS...)

Indeed. love that, thank you. Sorry for the late reply, I didn't look into this thread for a while.

Members who read my posts will know that I am a fan of The Kinks, Toto, Robert Palmer, James Taylor, Bonnie Raitt, Manhattan Transfer and a lot of others who can be found in my 2.000 CD shelf ...

But I always had a particular liking of Alternative/Indie bands, such as Belle + Sebastian, Beautiful South, Deacon Blue, Travis or Prefab Sprout. "Mr Prefab Sprout" Paddy McAloon was born near Newcastle as far as I know like so many good musicians of our time including our hero. McAloon has an instinct for perfect melodies and good lyrics and is still working - here a video from 2017 - hope you enjoy it :D :
