KingCast rest and relaxation time: More than this, the Postman rings twice.... banned in Boston like Milan Kohout.

With some discovery battles set forth in one case I don't publicly discuss, with today's lawsuit filed with Brian Jesseman against the Union Leader, and with Senator Tarr's office taking the helm on the matters of Robert Taylor legislation, I can actually relax for a few hours. So the creative muse suggested Postman Rings Twice -- a quick but excellent read, and I stumbled across one of my favorite Roxy Music songs (at least from their synth/mellow era) "More Than This." I went with the pic of Bryan Ferry's insanely hot girlfriend from the 80's who actually is the one wearing the helmet on the cover of "Avalon." Photo courtesy Robert Mapplethorpe.

Bryan Ferry is now 62 years of age. Ouch.

Related info: Postman Rings Twice was banned in Boston, just like International Mobius artise Milan Kohout.

I could feel at the time
There was no way of knowing
Fallen leaves in the night
Who can say where they´re blowing
As free as the wind
And hopefully learning
Why the sea on the tide
Has no way of turning
More than this - there is nothing
More than this - tell me one thing
More than this - there is nothing
It was fun for a while
There was no way of knowing
Like dream in the night
Who can say where we´re going
No care in the world
Maybe i´m learning
Why the sea on the tide
Has no way of turning
More than this - there is nothing
More than this - tell me one thing
More than this - there is nothing

Honorable Mention:

1974's "Street Life." Dig the Horn section and the keyboards. Is this rock?

No, it's Roxy Music.

And the guitars are wailing, too. That shit was hip. Still is.

And Brian Eno rules.

You're a Roxy Music fan? If so, we have much more in common than either of us ever could have imagined. Who knew ?!?

"Beauty Queen" from - For Your Pleasure.

The entire Manifesto album aka CD. Fantastic. "Trash", "Ain't That So", "Dance Away," & "Cry, Cry, Cry."

Flesh and Blood's - "Rain, Rain, Rain."

I could go on and on. Which are your faves?

The artwork on their actual albums were always fantastic.

Ferry=not a "great" voice but unique and fitting for Roxy, no one else could have pulled it off. His solo effort (one of them) "TAXI" very good. Not familiar with the other.

The Hitler-"friendly" allegations against him, I think, kind of put a speed bump in his career a bit over the past year.

Roxy Music. Good stuff. Very good stuff!
