Mr. Amos & the "to do" list Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

Dear Mr. Amos,

I'm sure you're having a great evening in your luxurious West Coast rockstar pad... Work must be hard with having your personal accountant add up all the royalty cheques that keep stacking up.

But I want to inform you of your official "to do" list, as given to you by me (but of course I speak for ALL fans).
As much as we love you and appreciate your music Mr. Amos, we can't turn a blind eye to the fact that your fans need much more music than you're currently providing them.
I believe this "to do" list will help you prioritize what you spend your valuable time and energy on.

1. The first 2 TST solo albums (Knowledge & Innocence / A Briefing For The Ascent) MUST be rereleased. Yes, of course they will be expanded editions.

2. The first 3 Swirling Eddies albums (Let's Spin / Outdoor Elvis / Zoom Daddy) MUST be made into a deluxe boxset. It should come with 2 extra CD's (cd1 - eddie demos & b-sides / cd2 - live eddies)

3. Horrendous Disc finally gets its proper treatment and by making it a double disc with all music recorded in this beautiful era included. DA's definitive version of this album is an absolute MUST...as it's one of the world's greatest rock albums...period.

4. Motorcycle becomes overhauled by giving it the royal treatment. And by that I mean that it becomes a 3xcd with Motorcycle Tracks added as the 2nd disc, and the 3rd disc is a new live in-studio version of the album, stripped down...and with Jason Martin adding some extra geetars!

5. The !Alarma! Chronicles become revisited again. This time, no "bookset". Instead, a boxset with that includes all the stuff from the cutting room floor of this era. Very comprehensive. The CD's and packaging should all look like LP's.

6. Kalhoun Retuned - this overlooked album is rereleased as a 2xcd set, with cd1 being the orginal album with a modest amount of bonus tracks. cd2 is the exact same album (basic tracks) with Terry's mature ears behind the soundboards remixing...and adding additional instrumentation.

7. Bibleland Rediscovered - a simple 2xcd set with cd1 being the usual regular album rounded out by rough takes and b-sides. cd2 is Terry first complete (and serious) cover album...all from christian artists in light if the "Bible" theme...

8. Shotgun Angel - finally gets the exposure it deserves by being rereleased as a unique 2xcd. The 2nd disc is Taylor and Michael Roe reworking the tracks...

9. Record some more Starter Set stuff with J. Martin...and make it a 4xcd album where each album can play and sound good alone, but if you play them all together...you have something really special!


...I have MANY more ideas, but I think that this little list should get you started. It woudl be great if you could have all of these out by next summer...that way you would totally dominate the summer festival season.
I'm glad I could be of help Mr. Amos.
God Bless,
- cb

This is not to say that Lost Dogs now takes precedence over DA in terms of Terry's involvement, but I do believe folks have to hold tight until the Route 66 album finishes.

Holding tight has never been one of my strong point's. Back in the "day"
I never knew(live in canada) when a new record was coming until I saw it in the store, all this new technology makes me much more anxious. But the anticipation is also part of the fun.

We were often the same way. There were a few exceptions, but we generally never heard about anything until it was already released. Then it was sort of just a fluke to find it. I can remember searching for the original Darn Floor when it came out.... going from store to store trying to find one that had it. Only one store had it on CD and I think they only had one copy. It seems like Jason got that one and I forget how I got mine. May have had to order it through the store.

Theres definitely been a change of attitudes among fans because of the internet. Back then, waiting years for an album was "normal"... now everything is expected instantly by some. Its weird to think about how things have progressed... a one stop website with tour info, online ordering with credit cards and other info would have been a dream come true back then..

We go back farther than that... I just remember the Darn Floor search well for some reason. It was a pain.

Albums? I first heard DA when they were traveling minstrels visiting our tiny hamlet.

Well... young or old, you've got us all beat I'm afraid.

Minstrels? I remember when Steve Baxter and Terry played a prehistoric
version of "The Bible" on the Divje Babe flute in the Flinstone's backyard.

Sadly I think the Lost Dogs is (to use Terry's words on FB) his "main gig" now.
So yes I think the dogs do take precedence over DA.
I think MBD is the last DA album.
It has been 8 years since it came out.
It is a great album to cap off a career with, but still the idea leaves me very sad.
