In response to Cyrille Regis, BBC 2 repeat the Adrian Chiles documentary, Whites v Blacks, How Football Changed A Nation, unbelievable true story, worth watching

There is a three-part article coming up for E.L.O (Eldorado, A New World Record and Out Of The Blue). Look out for it soon.

Stoke City condemned 2 relegation. Who is the new manager? Paul Lambert.

Agreed Reyno about Clyde Best, further back is the story of Walter Tull which is quite heartbreaking, links to Northampton and lived in Rushden.

Big loss is Cyrille, only short time at Wolves, but I was at the Peterborough game where he scored the last minute winner, Cyrille and Laurie C, what a team.

I think many people forget guys like West Ham's Clyde Best whenever the subject of the impact of black footballers in the English game crops up. He was just as good as the West Brom trio years b4

Cyrille was part of the ground breaking so called 'three degrees' who did so much to break down racial barriers in Football back in the late 70's.R.I.P

After All - 1988 How High The Moon



ARTIST: After All
ALBUM: How High The Moon
LABEL: Capitol
SERIAL: C2 90662
YEAR: 1988

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN:

LINEUP: Scott Acomba - vocals * Todd Simko - guitar, backing vocals * Jordy Birch - bass, backing vocals * Leigh Grant - drums

TRACK LISTING: 01 Save Me From Myself * 02 Bullets * 03 It's Only The Blues * 04 Holiday * 05 Waiting * 06 Shadows Of A Dove * 07 The Boat Leaves Sunday * 08 90-92 * 09 Here I Am Again * 10 The Colour Of Mary's Eyes


Background
This is a one-off Canadian outfit from Vancouver with an interesting sound that should appeal to many readers here. They combine a melodic rock/AOR style with an alt rock style that blends beautifully. Think Boulevard, Glass Tiger, Silent Running, Tuesday Blue with Tomorrows Child and Lions And Ghosts. They must have done something right to appeal to the paymasters at Capitol Records, who are notoriously picky about who they sign on their label, so good AA for that.


The Songs
'How High The Moon' is a consistent listen all the way through. I doubt they'll be much to complain about here, as it is an album you can run the gauntlet from start to finish with pleasing results. The impression they leave on the introductory 'Save Me From Myself' is a good one, definitely you can some traces of those aforementined bands shine through, particularly Tomorrows Child, but that's only one. Highlihghts for me include the intense depth charger of 'Bullets', the graceful acoustics of 'Waiting', and the Glass Tiger like 'The Boat Leaves Sunday'. Toward the end, the band get a bit racy and a bit poppy. 'Here I Am Again' and the especially jangly 'The Colour Of Mary's Eyes' are the cases in point.


In Summary
Produced by former Red Rider alumni John Webster, this album won't set your fires alight if you are expecting a swag of guitar hero like solos. After All would only release the one album, before migrating their style of rock to become the band Pure. This was released on CD, and with Capitol Canada's releases all bundled with EMI, you may find this easier to come by in your online searches. Worth an exploration, and I'm certain you won't have to jump through hoops or as high as the moon to acquire a copy.
