Is that ex-Manfred Mann Paul Jones?

yus. apparently, along with 'pretty vacant' on the b-side, this was a reaction against punk - poorly judged. :)

Seems like a weird project for him and Tim Rice. Some songs shouldn't be touched, or at least, there's no good reason for touching them.

Bleezy - it's not that simple, the idea was as follows as defined by Red Mosquito.

Red Mosquito says:

Hello Val. The idea was to select a reasonably well know toon and compare it to an interesting/ leftfield acoustic version by the same artist or another artist. At least one youtube clip will be necessary to demo the unplugged version. The original version might feature electric piano and the unplugged version might be played on a bassoon. Seek out the weird ones!!

This later got expanded to include plugged in versions of acoustic, for example, a heavy metal band doing a Leonard Cohen original.

Hi BB. It's nice to see you made it back. I may very well have missed it (if that's the case, apologies) but a little appreciation to Nick aka 'The Foe' for keeping this thread alive would be nice as you have stated you might not close it. ;@}

I'll get my nom later.
