Past And Present – First Time Out


This is a UK private press LP recorded at Rook Studios in the town of Stourport On Severn. It was released in 1979 and is all cover songs of varying genres. I guess this band was a local outfit which played pubs/clubs, maybe weddings and the like. The musicianship is fairly good throughout, comfortably handling country rock, rock & roll, rock and ballads. The lineup of the band was: Gary Cooper (lead guitar/vocals), Peter Smith (rhythm guitar/vocals), Peter Elton (bass), Roger Quiney (drums/vocals) and Jilly Smith (vocals). The band is pictured standing in a rural clearing on the back cover, but it doesn’t really ever get to a rural vibe musically. Overall, it’s not a bad LP, not really my thing, but then the last two songs on side two are a really good “Long Train Running” followed by a facemelting version of “Exodus”, I’m not sure who’s arrangement it is, but it’s brutal nonetheless.

  • Du – Juan Harris – RB Green Bay Packers Although he hinted
    that he would go back to selling cars in the offseason, I have a feeling that Du – Juan Harris will not be on any car lot at the beginning of the 2013 NFL season. It is Tennessee’s Rocky Top, Florida’s Old Ball Coach,
    and of course the Gator Chomp and the mighty Tim Tebow.
    In a very short time he built a very, very thorough roster that can beat you
    in a number of ways.
