...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

YES ALUMNI: GTR, “Roundabout” from GTR: Deluxe Edition (2015): One Track Mind



I’ll admit that in 1986 I was not a fan of the super group GTR. In fact I wasn’t a fan of Steve Howe’s version of Yes or Steve Hackett’s version of Genesis. Time passes, things change and I pulled out my old LP version of the Geoff Downes-produced GTR album. Quite frankly, the album holds up better that the second or third Asia albums, and stands alongside Steve Hackett’s post-Genesis work up to that point.
So, I was quite pleased to see a new reissue of GTR’s self-titled album by Esoteric Recordings, after the resolution of some long-standing matters involving finances and licensing. Included on the various editions are bonus tracks and never-officially-released music from a July 19, 1986 stop at the Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles.
