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

Emerald Rain - 2000 Live 2K



ARTIST: Emerald Rain
ALBUM: Live 2K
LABEL: Frontiers
SERIAL: FRCD 056
YEAR: 2000

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN:

LINEUP: Murray Daigle - vocals * Mike Dmitrovic - guitars * Sean Gregory - bass * Kyle Lazenka - drums

TRACK LISTING: 01 Never Surrender * 02 Desperate Heart * 03 Heart On The Line * 04 Your Disguise * 05 Age Of Innocence * 06 Come Clean * 07 High Road To Nowhere * 08 Broken Saviours * 09 Endless Grey * 10 Don't Tell The Rain * 11 Dungeon Drums (solo) * 12 Misery Loves Company * 13 Take A Stand * 14 No Saviour * 15 Take A Stand (Studio)


Background
Canada's Emerald Rain have been around for a little while now, yet this is the first time I have sampled their wares. Well, that was my mistake. Live2K is naturally a live performance recorded at the Dungeon in Oshawa, Canada. The track list combines material from both of their albums, along with one new track ('Your Disguise') and the previously Jap-only 'Take a Stand'. Both the live and studio versions are featured.


The Songs
From the outset this is a rocking affair and the pace only relents on two occasions with the power ballads 'Misery Loves Company' and 'Come Clean'. Throughout the 59 minutes and 15 tracks we are treated to many memorable moments, in particular the brilliant 'Desperate Heart', 'High Road To Nowhere', and 'No Saviour'. To be honest there isn't a dud track on here. The performances from all involved are tight and professional. I would describe Murry Daigle's vocals as being similar to Harem Scarem's Harry Hess and on the odd occassion Ten's Gary Hughes. I have to make special mention of the guitar work by Mike Dmitrovic. Simply astonishing. Combining elements from Pete Lesperance, Vinny Burns and at times John Petrucci, Mike absolutely scorches. This is the first time in a while that a guitar performance has affected me so greatly. The tone is beautiful and you hear every note even when the solos are going flat-out.


In Summary
This album has been on heavy rotation in my cd player since the moment I got it. You can feel the energy of the live performance thanks to the bands great attitude and sound. The production is crystal clear, a great job done by the band themselves. For those who already know and appreciate the work of Emerald Rain this album will confirm what you think - these guys have talent. For the un-initiated Live2K is the perfect way to get introduced to Emerald Rain.
