    I bought the vinyl of "Straight To The Krankenhaus" back in 1977 and replaced it with the CD about 10 years or so ago. I didn't realize that they released a CD last year. How do they sound 42 years on from that very fine album "Straight"?

    Striptease is their unreleased at the time and NOW released 'fifth' album from 1977 or so.

    Yeah, I have great hopes. Straight to the Krankenhaus is one of my favorite albums of all time. And now I have to search for the 1st one I guess.

    Secret Oysters first album is quite different, much more jazzy.

    It has Mads Vinding on bass (jazz & Jazz fusion guy, here a great track with Tony Williams) and rock drummer from Burning Red Ivanhoe, both was replaced on the next album Sea Son.

    I prefer this album, but never saw them live in this formation.

    I purchase Spotify so I suppose that sort of counts...whatever.

    The Arc-Light Sessions: The Unintended Consequence of Memory

    I try to keep real negative opinions to myself since we're dealing with personal taste - but what did I just listen to? Right from the beginning it sounds as if someone did a multi track recording and then sort of moved each track a little bit this way or that - off by a tiny bit so that it doesn't quite sync-up. Then the vocals kick in and I'm like "no". I sat there and listened to the whole thing just to be fair and I think that tasked my fairness. To anyone who likes it, dog-bless. Not for me. This is what happens when I have Progarchives new releases in my Feedly as a way to be introduced to stuff.
