    Well, yeah, but I find it interesting that the drummer gets reduced to being a tambourine player, to accommodate the backup musicians. But I suppose it would be kinda ridiculous to expect someone like Gordon or Hawkwins to go on tour, just to play on the one or two songs that Capaldi sang on. And with Rebop Kwaku Baah on board, that pretty much took care of the ancillary percussion requirements. So it would seem Capaldi was effectively demoted to being a backing musician, except for the songs where he sang lead vocal (and I believe there's only two of them during that era).

    I kind of got the sense that Capaldi just wanted to be up front with Winwood as a sort of co-front man. Even if that meant he wasn't really contributing to the instrumental performances.
    I'm holding out for the Wilson-mixed 5.1 super-duper walletbuster special anniversary extra adjectives edition.

    Deus Ex Machina - "De Republica" (1992) ~Dittatura della Mediocrità

    Time for a Commercial Break!!



    from "De Republica" (1992)
    video: excerpt from 'Organism' by Hilary Harris (1975)

    Do you have "brave" ears? Do you like your progressive rock to be challenging? Have you ever wished that the efforts of artists like Zappa, Gentle Giant and Echolyn were just a tad less staid and predictable? Do you often find yourself enjoying "difficult" music that sends your mate, family, and/or pet howling from the room? Does the idea of an Italian prog band who dramatically deliver their vocals in Latin, and play uncompromisingly eclectic, avant-garde music which draws heavily upon jazz fusion elements intrigue you? ~ review by Peter

    And yet, he really only sang, I believe, two songs. But yeah, I suppose I could see the point that he probably wanted to be a front man, as it were.
