Awww thanks! That's high praise indeed. It's all thanks to you and the collective wisdom of this forums' members.
Yes that is surprising indeed. What's even more surprising is that A1/W1 were recorded with the video loop turned on!
I posted two sets of clips because I was curious whether the presence of a video loop affected performance or if just having the feature turned on would make a difference whether there was a video or not. Avalon has a video loop, Walking in the Rain does not, but there was still a difference!
This is something everyone can easily try themselves, so why did I bother posting clips? Expectation bias. I was convinced off would be better before I even listened, and after I listened I didn't want to believe what I was hearing. A bit of unbiased feedback was needed.
"Forced" you say? ;-) That's a fantastic cover. Grace does it justice. I love it when artists come up with truly creative and brilliant alternative perspectives on a great song. Newton Faulkner's rendition of Massive Attack's "Teardrop" comes immediately to mind.ThomasOK wrote: ↑2023-03-10 17:58 After listening to the second pair I was forced to go find this and listen to it:
Maybe I should bring this album to the show?
If you have room to pack another disc I think Grace Jones would be a welcome addition at the show.
