Extended holiday...?

Captain Fantastic 30 year Deluxe Edition package
The Deluxe Edition

No, not really. This gap in posting is due to a bunch of things of which a couple of parties are part of.

Party = A social gathering especially for pleasure or amusement.

So what's the current favs over at the RadioDupree playlist? Here's the answer:

1. David Bowie - Star - Stage
2. Talking Heads - The Overload - Remain In Light
3. Sly & The Family Stone - Family Affair - West Coast Rock
4. Jethro Tull - Crossed-eyed Mary - Live Bursting Out
5. David Bowie - Speed Of Life - Stage

My latest purchase is the 30 year deluxe edition of Captain Fantastic And The Brown Dirt Cowboy. And for once they've not managed to mangle an Elton John re-release. You get the original poster and lyrics and scrap books plus a live recording from Wembley Stadium, London of the preformance of the complete album. Recorded June 21, 1975 it was just a couple of weeks after the Captain Fantastic... was released. The show is full of energy and I recommend this new CD version to any Elton fan.

Steely Dan connection: Jeff "Skunk" Baxter - who was by then a member of The Doobie Brothers - plays guitar and steel guitar on the Wembley recording.
