Steve Hackett - Somewhere in South America... Live in Buenos Aires (2002) (Japan LP Sleeve) [Re-Up]

A great snapshot of the show Steve Hackett brought to the USA in the summer of 2002 for too few dates, his long overdue return. The vast majority of his North American fans didn't get to see this show, so this CD lets you hear what it was like. Hackett produced a lot of work in the nine years since his last US tour, so this was the first chance to hear a lot of "new" things live. This minimalized production does deliver, though I might have enjoyed more new material at the show. In any event, old classics are retooled and this collection captures a great show.

The Japanese Discovery of America by Peter Duus
English | Mar. 1997 | ISBN: 0312163789 | 226 Pages | PDF | 11 MB

This brief documentary history chronicles the nineteenth-century (1837-1871) encounters between Japan and the United States that led to the opening of Japanese society to Western influence. An extensive introduction describes American attempts to overturn Japan's long-standing policy of isolation (culminating in the 1853-1854 Perry Expedition) and considers the lasting effects of Japan's fascination with a culture radically different from its own.

An outstanding UK band with PENDRAGON/GENESIS influences and occasional flourishes of Pink Floyd. The Long Goodbye is a debut album released in 1996. The band has a dramatic vocal style, HACKETTesque guitars. The flute on the album, played by Martin Orford, adds a bit of variation. Fans of symphonic progressive rock should appreciate Moria Falls.
