Music Diary – 23rd July

Welcome back to another site in my music diary – today for the 23rd July!

So – I will take you back in the year 2000 when I added another Jethro Tull vinyl single to my collection. This one is from 1968 and it’s the UK release of „Love Story“ with „A Christmas Song“ on the flipside. There is also a different and misprinted version on which Ian Anderson is miscredited as „Ian Henderson“ as the composer.

Music Diary – 22nd July

Welcome again to my music diary – today for the 22nd July!

In 2003 I attended a very special show: The Belgian dance company Ultima Vez performed „Blush“ which featured the music of Woven Hand in Vienna at the Volkstheater. It was very interesting to see the interaction between the modern dancers and the band playing live on the same stage.

Cheers and have a nice day!

Welcome to another day in my music diary – today for the 21st July!

Back in the year 2000 I got my copy of the Cramps maxi single „Kizmiaz„, which was originally released in 1986! And this collector’s item is in pink vinyl and features the songs „Kizmiaz„, „Get off the Road“ and „Give me a Woman„.


Cheers and have a nice day with fine music!

Music Diary – 19th July

Hello again – another entry in my personal music diary! This time for the 19th July!

Back in 1996 I added a wonderful and special CD to my huge Jethro Tull collection: The MFSL release of the outstanding album „Thick as a Brick“, which entered the charts worldwide in the year 1972. This one is a „Original Master Recording“ and comes as a 24 carat gold disc. The sound of these very special and limited editons is outstanding and nowadays very hard to find.


Other Tull releases of this serie are „Stand Up“, „Living in the Past„, „A Passion Play„, „War Child“ and „Songs from the Wood„.

Music Diary – 18th July

Welcome to my personal music diary for the 18th July!

In 2009 I had my long overdue live experience with the one and only Mrs. Patti Smith! The musician, singer and poet played an open air gig in Wels at the so called Schl8hof. Although Patti got a cold that night she did an awesome performance and served us a nice mixture of her classics and some nice surprises.
