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

The Eloy journey continued into 1982, the band having to find a set of songs to reach the dizzy heights of 1981's 'Planets'. 'Time To Turn' would be that album, and though the music isn't as outrageously good as its predecessor, there are still moments to delve into.

The Songs
A stacked organ sequence introduces 'Through A Somber Galaxy', it is less space-oriented as the song-title might suggest, the middle sequence featuring a strong David Gilmour guitar solo from Frank Bornemann. It is trademark Eloy, so no worries there. 'Behind The Walls Of Imagination' starts out introspectively, and keeps to the same tempo throughout, the melody and instrumentation akin to similar era Alan Parsons Project. The title track 'Time To Turn' has a touch of Genesis and Pink Floyd, the slower tempo an opportunity to let some spiralling synth leads dominate, along with a children vocal choir joining in. 'Magic Mirrors' would be considered a run of the mill song in terms of the overall Eloy discography, and though pleasant, lacks pulling power by comparison. The nine minute 'End Of An Odyssey' is a return to Eloy's bread and butter. It pushes through three distinct sections, with keyboards dominating right up to the halfway mark. Hi-hats are scattered across the soundscape, and vocals don't kick in until the 5 minute mark. The song itself isn't that musically challenging, but as mentioned earlier, it is trademark Eloy. I kept hearing Genesis on 'The Flash'. Perhaps it was the Phil Collins like vocal? The middle section has a bouncy synth segment which makes this song more interesting. Bornemann brings out the acoustic guitar for 'Say, Is It Really True', amid a nice layering of synths giving this an space like/ambient feel. quite beautiful actually, this track is a lovely way to finish up the album.

In Summary
Another great album, and like the 'Planets' album, UK label Heavy Metal re-released 'Time To Turn' during the same year, with another Rodney Matthews inspired cover being used as an alternative. The 2005 remaster and reissue by Harvest is exactly the same circumstances as the 'Planets' reissue, with the 12 page liner notes written by Volker Kuinke in German.

Almost a forgotten album with the more illustrious Planets and the dazzling Performance album either side of it. Still, enough worthy AOR crossover on display
