Review of Tempest - Bob's new one


Recommended Posts

thanks FB , hope the guy's right in his findings there . sounds promising enough .

you wouldnt wanna fluff your 35th album celebrating 50 years in showbusiness with a lame duck

haha...what about the 45 verse jobbie on the sinking of the Titanic!....old Gordy wasn't even trying with the "Edmund Fitzgerald"....

Yea nice one FB,


you just know its gonna be good..maybe his last..lets hope not.


I am always suspicious/ weary of reading reviews before I listen to an album.. I like to make my own mind up on what a song maybe ABOUT,,, sometimes its obvious where the spark is coming from but I'm sure there will be many layered meanings to these songs.


A case in point was reading a review of one of Bob's recent albums ( cant think of name at mo ) and the reviewer was giving some actual lyrics from Working Mans Blues, he stated Bob was singing


" I'm listening to Stevie Ray's Hum, got my eyes tight shut"


when he's actually singing


" I'm listening to the steel rails hum "


which for me is much more emotive and blues.. ( never got Stevie Ray Vaughn... so maybe I hear it differnt..haha )


anyway really looking forward to this one.. cheers again FB
