Kevin Coyne & Achim Goettert "Opera For Syd"

Kevin Coyne has always had my respect. This is a very different outing for him.

Yes they do Floyd cuts and the Jazz Sax hits the trail real well, but I doubt if Syd would have loved it as we do.

Closer to Beefheart than Floyd this wonderful concert is exceptional for it's strange beats and interesting Jazz - Prog sounds with some exceptional solos too.

I realise that I have almost a complete collection of KC. And have been adding some of the Siren recordings recently - I assure you every song is worth a listen, I cannot express the joy (As a Kevin Coyne fan) That I have when listening - I just warn off the people thinking it has a lot to do with Syd. Introductions are in German and I do not speak - Kevin was BIG in Germany and ought to have been BIGGER in his native country - Good on you guys out there in Germany who supported him.

A 192 sampled content that came to me from Borlando - Thank YOU - This is one of my favourite Kevin Coyne recordings. Sorry I have had no time to support this place as I am back at work and it SUCKS - Both my time and my uploading options.

And toc!
yet a given link running so our ears discover this album strange and penetrating. Thanks of course to PNF, but especially thanks to Isabel (a heroin on this site) that never forget us!
