Access All Areas

This place isn't what it used to be but I guess that's to be expected.

Did anyone buy Access All Areas? Any reactions?

Not sure what this place used to be, but although a little quiet at times, I learn a lot that I would not otherwise hear, living abroad as I do now.

Anyway YES I bought AAA and thoroughly enjoyed it. One aspect that stood out was the excellent vocal displays. Mainly Jacka but also Hully and Marty Craggs too. If I have a concern with the new line up it is the lack of a top notch front man. Over the years that has been filled by the above mentioned and of course Billy Mitchell. Still I live in hope (well its cheaper than France)

Thanks Waldo,

I'm glad you enjoyed it. I have the same concert in an earlier format - "Classic Rock Legends" - and I seriously don't like it so I haven't bought it this time around although I'm sure the sound quality is much improved.

That version of "Clear White Light", if you can even call it that at all, was probably the worst track I've ever heard them perform.

The whole set struck me as really stale. Jacka moved on shortly after that and although Lindisfarne without Jacka is still something I struggle to come to terms with even now him leaving was probably the best thing that could have happened. It forced the remaining line-up to try different angles and gave Marty a bigger role.  

You're right about the latest incarnation - the lack of an obvious front man will be their biggest challenge. Forum Index -> THE MAIN MESSAGE BOARD
