Steve Marriott Live 1985. It's his Packet of Three Band, including Jerry Shirley and Jim Leverton doing Small Faces, Humble Pie and a few Blues numbers. It's a short show (about 45 minutes), but it is OUTSTANDING! Awesome sound and quality, and Marriott is simply amazing. Highly recommended.

Re: Have you gotten any new dvds lately?


 Well, it's a non-music dvd, but my wonderful wife just presented me with a 4 dvd set of one of my all-time favorite sci-fi/horror tv seies, "Brimstone". This was a Fox series that only ran for 14 episodes or so, from fall of 1998 'til mid-winter of 1999...whomever the mouth breather was that ordered it cancelled lost their job, one can only hope emoticon.
 Absolutely brilliant concept for a tv series and the writing was first rate! John Glover as the Devil was absolutely brilliant and I even managed to forgive Peter Horton (the 'hero' of the series, Detective Ezekiel Stone) for being in "thirtysomething" due to his stellar work in this fantastic series...the interplay between the two (Glover & Horton) was superb! I've just spent the majority of my weekend watching all the episodes, and I'm convinced more than ever that Fox made a monumental mistake in cancelling this show...it had the potential to become one of the all-time classic television sci-fi/horror series. Damn shame...well, at least I can enjoy it & share it with some other select viewers! emoticon

Yeah, the great John Glover as the Devil, he's always worth watching.

Re: Have you gotten any new dvds lately?


 Well, I've watched all of it! (Is it obvious by now how much I loved this series? emoticon)
 Here's some of my favorite lines from the series (apologies for this latest digression):

(from the opening credits)
Stone: "I was a cop. When my wife was raped, I caught the guy who did it, and I killed him. Two months later, I died. I went to Hell. A hundred and thirteen of the most vile creatures... escaped."
Devil: "They think they'll beat the Devil. Nobody beats me!"
Stone: "So how am I supposed to send them back?"
Devil: "The eyes - windows to the soul. Destroy the eyes, and the damned get a one-way ticket back home to Hell. But it's not Hell you should be scared of - it's losing your second chance at life on Earth."
Stone: "Time to give the Devil his due."

Devil: "If it means anything - I'm sorry. Sort of. Well... no, I lied - I'm not."

Devil: "Vanilla?!? Where's the waitress - I only eat Rocky Road!"

Devil: "I never loved anyone but God... and that was a long time ago."

Devil: "Junk mail...one of my lesser triumphs."

Devil: "I have always advocated family values, all the way back to Cain and Abel."

Devil: "My job's not to decide who lives and dies. My business is with the soul. And I have never damned a soul who didn't thoroughly deserve it. Mother Nature is a completely different story. She kills indiscriminately, good and evil alike. Why she gets all the good press, I'll never know."

Devil: "Four out of five dentists surveyed agree - tooth decay is no longer a problem...once you're dead."

Devil: "Now wait a minute! Fifteen years in Hell, now you're back on Earth and you're complaining! Oh, because you have to walk...you're not going Hollywood on me, are you, Zeke?"

Devil (talking about roses): "Did you know the thorns were originally my idea?"

Devil: "God's universe is not like the American legal system. You do something, you pay for it."

(Stone defends killing his wife's rapist)
Devil: "Yes, yes, now that's what I like to hear - the indomitable spirit and righteous indignation of the human species. I've heard it a million times defending a billion atrocities, and it's still music to my ears.!"

Devil: "Thanks to global warming, it gets more and more comfortable for me up here very day."

Hotel Desk Clerk: "Where have you been?"
Stone: "Out of the country."
Hotel Desk Clerk: "Really? Where?"
Stone: "Down under."
 
An Angel: "Yours is a divine purpose, Ezekiel."
Stone: "He'd (the Devil) freak if he heard that."
An Angel: "Good - let him freak."

Stone: "Why don't you try and just enjoy some of the beautiful things in this world? Just one. Try it on for size."
Devil: "Believe me - it won't fit."

Woman:"Why shouldn't you know the whole truth? It's not as if you'll ever leave this house alive."
Stone: I've got news for you - I never entered it alive."

(Stone lights a candle for the dead in a Catholic church)
Woman: "Who's that for?"
Stone: "Me."

(Stone meets the Devil in an elevator)
Stone: "Going up or down?"
Devil: "Guess."
Devil: "You know, before they invented the elevator, I had to walk all the way from hell."
Ezekiel Stone: "Glad to hear it."
Devil: "Second throughts, Ezekiel?"
Stone: "Can't you find someone else to torture?"
Devil: "Millions of them! They can wait. Everyone's in such a rush...I say, stop and smell the burning flesh of sinners."

Stone: "Do you know anything about faith?"
Devil: "Faith? I was present at its creation."

Stone: "Get out of my head!"
Devil: "As if you could wrap your brain in barbed wire to keep me out...that is a delightful image, however!"

Devil: "That glint of joy in your eyes as the little tyke dropped to the ground - if you don't mind me saying so.
Stone: "I do mind."
Devil: "I know...I just don't give a damn."

Devil: "You don't have any friends, Ezekial. You're not only really dead, you're really most sincerely dead."
Stone: "Isn't that from 'The Wizard of Oz'?"
Devil: "I HATE that movie!"

(The Devil interrupts Stone as he's having breakfast)
Stone: "What do you want?"
Devil: "Your every waking moment consumed with holding up your end of our bargain."
Stone: "Man's gotta eat."
Devil: "A living man, perhaps. But, for you, this would be classified as recreation. Like those idle thoughts of yours replaying that sweet bygone day over and over. As if, you're expecting a different outcome. Some people would call that insane."
Stone: "Yeah? What would they call a conversation with the Devil over breakfast?"

Stone: "Bless me, Father, for I have sinned. It has been a long time since my last confession. I was a cop, and good at my job. I was married; I had a good life. Then my wife was raped. We caught the guy who did it, but he got off. So I tracked him down and I killed him. Two months later, I cornered this petty thief who had a gun. He opened up on me, and I took five bullets to the face and neck. I died. And because I had killed a man in cold blood, I went to Hell. You know it's funny, but even in the most maximum security penitentiary, from time to time, inmates will escape. It happened on Devil's Island. It happened at Alcatraz. Six weeks ago... it happened in Hell."

Priest: "The Devil, he appears to you as a man?"
Stone: "Yeah...he looks a lot like a kid I used to beat the crap out of in sixth grade... I'm sure that's on purpose."

Stone (seeing The Devil disguised as a motorcycle cop) : "Don't you know it's against the law to impersonate a police officer?"
Devil: "What do you think you're doing, Ezekiel? You're impersonating a human being."

Stone: "You know, you should be grateful. You should be happy. Every week I send one of your sinners back to Hell. You do nothing but complain."
Devil: "Don't get so cocky, detective! You know what over-confidence leads to, don't you? You get bit in the ass!"

...and my single favorite exchange between Stone & The Devil:

Devil: "So, Ezekiel, how did it feel? A pariah, shunned and hated by your fellow men?"
Stone: "Kinda reminded me of you...yeah, run out of heaven on a rail. I bet it still hurts, doesn't it?"

 About ten meinutes, Sandbagger...well, after watching all the episodes, maybe a bit more, in total - but a great way to spend some extra time! emoticon

Just bought the latestissue of Classic Rock and I have to say the version of SOTW from Montreux is, apart from Lordy's beautiful jazzy intro, is appalling. Morse, once again utterly destroys a DP classic. I've heard kids play it with much more taste than this 1980s squuky-twiddly showcase. No one's going to buy Montreux dvd after first seeing and hearing this! emoticon
