Anyone else not seeing the link or is it a problem at my end?

This was discussed a bit on another thread. I think I'll wait a bit before splashing out. If anyone gets it can they post a review please?

Agreed. It looks promising...but I'll wait and see.

You can get a preview of the Popoff book on Amazon. It doesn't seem to have much info that most of us don't already know and sadly appears to be lacking any of the session info I was hoping for (where the songs were recorded, who played on what song, and so on). I'll probably give this one a pass.

Looks to be very similar to books like Steve Turner's "A Hard Day's Write" or Cliff Jones' "Another Brick in the Wall" - just a bit of context and then a brief musical analysis - without any input from anyone associated with the band.

I was hoping for something more like this:

Oh well.

Somebody here is going to have to write the book we all want to read.

...just need access to the hard data of what was recorded where and when and by whom! ;) I think we could then fill in the rest.

I've just caved in and ordered this. Will hopefully keep me going until the BIG one. It's Ralph's new book that I'm really looking forward to.

There's a new interview with Bernie about Cut the Crap in this new book, and I think he may have totally lost his marbles. Here's a sample...
But somehow Cut the Crap ended up a really great album, if you put the record on now you'll enjoy it. It doesn't date.

Bernie's right in a way: time hasn't made it seem appreciably worse than when it was released.

It doesn't date, it doesn't marry, it doesn't even go out with friends. Cut the Crap will die alone, unloved and barely remembered, in a tenement, its confused mess of a body undiscovered for weeks.

Especially since the piecemeal assembly that characterized CTC's creation is standard operating procedure nowadays for a lot of stuff -- see The Song Machine for further reference on how that all works.

Got anymore nuggets where that one came from? Since Mark and I did try to engage him.
