Oophoi - Signals from the Great Beyond (The Complete Recordings), monumental album from the Master, enough said.

Yes, it's a great one, especially Disc 1.  It was one of the last recordings I obtained from Gigi.

It certainly is, it was the first disc I bought directly from him, and always had a special place with me, more so now, and is probably my most favourite album of his, although there are so many more of his that come really close to it.

This is absolutely devastating news. I only emailed him earlier this week to see how he was, he told me he was in hospital and had been for the past month, I knew he had been ill for some time. Gigi's music inspired me to make music again, and I am forever in his debt for that. He will be greatly missed, I will miss him deeply. I will cherish the legacy that he has left us with and his beautiful sounds. My deepest condolences to his wife and family. Rest in peace my friend.

.... and, yes, I'm particularly proud that I learned how to embed the soundcloud player...  :)
Beautiful piece,  8)

I "listened" to this today....



and by "listened" I mean I whipped out my guitar and tried to play along after not playing these songs for 10-ish years and trying to remember what part comes next....

I should really get back to the stack of ambient CD's piling up on my kitchen table that I bought months ago and then didn't listen to...

IMHO it is their best ever album, raw and powerful, nothing else they've done has ever come close to it.

Saturnus latest, Saturn in Ascension, is superb, although imo they could have left off the final track, but highly recommended all the same :)

Ah, had it been a UK artist then I could have seen about getting it for you and shipping it across, which may have worked out cheaper.

Iron Maiden-Live After Death.  I would say if you could only have one IM album in your collection, this should be it.  Recorded 1985 at the peak of their game. 

I'm showing my age here a bit, but I saw the Maiden on their first tour with Paul Di'Anno at Middlesbrough Town Hall. I liked their stuff very much then but I think they haven't really changed musically from their early days.
Incidentally, I also saw a band called 'White Spirit' at the same venue (well, in the Crypt) with Janick Gers, before he joined Iron Maiden. My last blast from the past was seeing an AC/DC soundalike band with a Mr Brian Johnstone as singer - before he joined AC/DC.

Jolly days...

I saw Iron Maiden at The Rock Garden in Middlesbrough, again it was with Paul Di'Anno on vocals, they where pretty average in my opinion, could never understand why they got so big. My friend took over the lead guitar role in White Spirit, Jannick Gers left to join the Ian Gillan Band, before he eventually joined Iron Maiden. But yes those were the days 8)
