Listened to this in the garden today whilst trying to recover from a heavy night on-call and really enjoyed it. Lots of short but sweet tracks and some classic TD melodies. My personal favourites are Crystal Curfew(with it's simple but beautiful repeated phrase on the guitar, lovely), Paradise Cove and Radio City but there's nothing on the CD that's all that bad. Biggest surprise for me was that I'd forgotten just how BIG the drums are on this album.

TD and Edgar have had hard years as well, it was well into the early 70' before they could give up their day jobs. It's also well documented that Edgar had to rough it in Paris (Bois de bologne), eating nothing but horse meat for some time.

Bet he doesn't eat horsemeat now!

why would ANYONE eat horsemeat?

The French do, infact they used to buy horses from the UK

From Wiki:

According to legend, the modern French taste for horse meat dates from the Battle of Eylau in 1807, when the surgeon-in-chief of Napoleon's Grand Army, Baron Dominique-Jean Larrey, advised the starving troops to eat the flesh of horses that had died on the battlefield. The cavalry used breastplates as cooking pans and gunpowder as seasoning, and thus founded a tradition.

Horse meat gained widespread acceptance in French cuisine during the later years of the Second French Empire. The high cost of living in Paris prevented many working-class citizens from buying meat such as pork or beef, and in 1866 the first butcher's shop specialising in horse meat opened in eastern Paris, providing quality meat at lower prices. During the Siege of Paris of 1870-71, horse meat was eaten by all citizens of Paris due to a shortage of fresh meat in the blockaded city, and also because live horses were eating vast quantities of grain which was needed by the human populace. Many Parisians gained a taste for horse meat during the siege, and after the war ended, horse meat remained popular amongst Parisian citizens.

Anyone else relieved to hear that that wasn't an euphemism…?


The tracks from Lily in approximate order of my preference:
  1. Long Island Sunset (a true classic)
  2. Mt. Shasta (things this atmospheric are rare for TD post-Franke)
  3. Radio City (rock on Jerome!)
  4. Paradise Cove (more driving energy, the TD you barely knew before)
  5. Lily on the Beach (something classic in that melody)
  6. Blue Mango Cafe (simple, but efficient)
  7. Too Hor For My Chincilla (not such a gem it's sometimes made, but still a darn good piece)
  8. Gecko (fun stuff)
  9. Crystal Curfew (mildly haunting; starting to get mediocre now)
  10. Twenty-Nine Palms (nice melody, don't like the specific sound in use)
  11. Alaskan Summer (percussion comes off a little strong for my taste)
  12. Valley of the Kings (I feel this one just gets lost)
  13. Desert Drive (what the hell, TD? what the hell?)
