    I think their problem was that they tried to go "stadium rock" and a lot of their early fans deserted them. Not sure they did anything special after new gold dream.
    Sounds about right.

    I thought Sparkle in the Rain (1984) was good. Once upon a time (1985) was probably their best known album, some good songs on there.

    A really interesting thread on music rights, ownership, legals etc through the prism of Taylor Swift's conflic with her original recond label, Big Machine

    The Stones screwed the Verve over Bitter Sweet Symphony as well. Richard Ashcroft only started getting money from that song 2 years ago.

    I recently bought a boxset of their albums for £12 odd. Includes a few from the 'golden era'. I only know their singles really, so it will be interesting to hear them in the context of the original albums.

    Hmmm, screwed is a bit harsh.

    He ripped off the riff from the instrumental version of The Last Time, so much that the Glimmer Twins (Mick and Keef) were added to the songwriting credits and the royalties went/still go to Allen Klein, the Stones‘ Manager.

    It was a salutary lesson in plagiarism, I guess.

    The Stones (Jagger Richards) handed back the rights to the Royalties last year. The Stones were never involved in the legal wrangle, it was all done by Allen Klein, who was the Stones manager at the time of the song. However, the bit the Verve sampled was nothing to do with Jagger/Richards, as it was a sample taken from an orchestral version performed by the LSO (or whoever).

    There’s at least three good albums there, be nice to hear what you think when you’ve given them a good listen

    That’s crazy about finding different tracks under the stereo tracks Clever to even think of trying that.

    A lot of folk (it seems to me)seem to be raving about the new John Meyer song 'Last Train Home'. I have quite liked some of his stuff in the past but this track is quite boring (that's me being polite).
    Reminds me a lot of Clapton (in decline) in the 80s.

    Easy listening, nice smooth sound. I like it, but get where you're coming from.

    Synth & Guitar sound great on it though. Although the synth riff probably stays a bit too simple for too long? Personally I think it's nice to see a bit of that more crafted music about again.
