He's dead. He died from a heartattack a few years back.

Thankfully not!

Grzegorz, have you read the posts about "Telecaster" and the Don Black thing? Sounds like things might be happening with a bit of luck!

Oh and MOTS was 3 years ago not 5....

Perhaps gtelicki actually means Piere who sadly died in 2005.

Andrew Taylor's Mohribold album has proved very popular with fans of symphonic-rock, prog-rock, psych-folk and indeed Oldfield's classic albums!

Excellent album - most sounds very dated now but Downwind and Emotions are pure gems (especially Mike's playing on Downwind). I used to own this on Vinyl but gave it away when I moved countries :-)

I listened to side one of this LP last night and I tell you what...it's better than I remember it. I definitely recommend it, especially for those of you who like a bit of jazz-rock fusion.

Spooky.....I set up my record player on the 27th......its been mothballed for 6 years, the first album I played on it was Downwind.....awesome album along with Time is the Key.....sad to see that Pierre has passed on, he was a fantastic percussionist, reminded me fondly of Animal from Sesame St

The "expanded edition" part has made me a bit curious. I didn't notice this at first.
Does anybody know what that entails? The website doesn't say. I hope they have not gone and ruined the original.

PS. Ordered this from Amazon - still in the mail.

I've bought this, and IMHO it doesn't really sound any better than the old CD. :) The booklet pics are nice, tho'.
