Interesting discussion about whether any of the songs could have been released on a Lindisfarne album. In the 1980s, the "Sleepless Nights", "Dance Your Life Away" and "Amigos" albums cast the net wider in terms of stylistic variety, often moving to a more mainstream approach, and there was also a blurring of Alan's solo and band output.

I think several of the songs could have merited a revival at this time and indeed "Golden Apples", another song from the early days, was tried out at the "Sleepless Nights" sessions and ended up on "Buried Treasures". Some songs enjoyed both a solo and band life, notably "Day Of The Jackal", "Heroes", "100 Miles to Liverpool" and "Malvinas Melody" whereas "Evergreen" was tried out for "Sleepless Nights" and ended up on "On The Other Side".   Accent was often on melody and this abounds on "Some Other Time"- "Love Lasts Forever" and "Personal History Book" are especially good examples of timeless tunes.

For those of you who do not subscribe to the music magazine "Uncut" the Spme other time album was rated a creditable 7/10 in the July edition. Nigel Williamson described the title track as "baroque chamber-rock Click-clock Tick-tock as "1960s pysch-pop", 297 words as "lovely folk rockism" and She as "Badfingerish" Whilst I personally dislike the "pigeon-hole speak" of the modern music critic, the piece was on the whole a positive appraisal, and ended with "it's testament to Hull's prolific talent that such burstingly melodic songs could be so easily discarded"

Anyone seen any other reviews?

Finally got a copy of this. I must admit, I wasn't sure what to expect, as often, there's a very good reason why an artist's unreleased songs were unreleased in the first place..... However, I'm pleasantly surprised by the quality of the songs and I'm now wondering what Alan's versions would have been like.

Dave and Ian have done a great job and I can't wait to see if there are any more in the pipeline.

Excellent and fully deserved five star review of "Some Other Time" by Ian Taylor in the new July/August issue of R2 "Rock'n'Reel".

My copy arrived in the post today.
It has inspired me to finally join this list after lurking here for so many years
Hi all!
Its a great piece of work, no duff tracks at all.
I guess we will never hear the originals but I believe a great job has been done trying to re create the original sound and feeling of the songs .
I hope this one is well recieved so we will hear more in the future.

I finally got round to listening to this CD this lunch time. I'm not sure what  I was the more afraid of - yet another crushing disappointment or having to admit to actually liking it.  

My immediate impressions - with the opening bars - were positive but it soon became apparent that this album is more piano orientated than I would have liked. If I had wanted Elton John, I would have bought Elton John.

Dave's vocal delivery holds up well throughout and it is to be doubted that anyone other than he could have interpreted this materially adequately in the absence of the great man himself.

This collection is probably worthwhile if only for the fact that we finally know whatever became of Clear White Light (I, one presumes).

Tracks 9 & 10 are obviously prototype versions of the song which eventually became When War is Over.  This helps to fuel a nagging sense that there is a reason why this material took almost half a century to see the light of day. To an extent at least, it is faithful to the spirit of scraping the bottom of the barrel which now mostly prevails on
Planet Lindisfarne. To state the obvious, it is aimed at a niche market to which, if I am true to myself, I no longer belong.

Will I give it another listen? Probably. Some Other Time.


Aaron, I remember you saying similar stuff about Lindisfarne in the past.  You might have been joking (in part) but I suspect from this latest post your thinking about the current Lindisfarne who you previously referred to as a tribute band is they've outstayed their welcome.  Obviously, there are people who disagree with you as there appears to still be an appetite for Lindisfarne music (new and old) and whilst I doubt I'll rush out to buy this CD myself I say each to their own.  As for scraping the barrel maybe if the hat fits....!!

Really Enjoyed the Cd, Some Other Time"- "Love Lasts Forever" and "Personal History Book" are my Fav tracks. Lot of piano on the Cd. Does anybody know if a copy of the chords and lyrics is about any where.
