"Avalon" is my favourite Roxy track. But they have done lots of good stuff. You went to Knebworth Max? I'll try and remember to treat you with a bit more respect in future (but don't hold your breath :-) And finally following your link to The Jazz Age took me to Amazon who advise that they have "15 new from $9.99 2 used from $17.87" Guess which I would buy??

##Guess which I would buy?? LOL Re Knebworth, I went year after year. Amongst many other acts I saw there were Pink Floyd, Monty Python, Devo, The Stones, 10 CC, and the last tour of Led Zepplin before the drummer died.

I was never a great fan of Roxy Music, but I did get to see them in Paris in the early 70s. The show was in some fancy hall theatre on the outskirts and rather up-market for the shows I normally attended. I was freaked out when I was shown to my seat and the usher stood there with his hand out, waiting for a tip. I'll tell you that the theatre was designed for the volume though- things rattled and the sound echoed terribly. Years later I was working on a sound distribution system and we only had two tapes for testing. There was a Peter Townshend solo album and Avalon. The one that sticks in my mind is "More than this". After the project I thought I would never want to hear anything from Avalon again or the Pete Townshend either.

I was wiring up a shop once (used to be a sparky amongst other things) and the Project Manager guy had a computer and one (and only one) CD - Simply Red. This he played incessantly, and it was interspersed with noises from his (night time scenes) screen saver - owls hooting and the like. These days, whenever I hear those Simply Red songs, I always wonder where the owls are....

Lucky Sod! The nearest we got to it in Zimbabwe (then Rhodesia) was reading New Musical Express and seeing the gigs advertised. We used to dream about seeing the Who, the Stones et al. A friend of mine from those days went to see The Who in Brisbane a year or two ago and ended up with permanent tinnitus.... Which leads me to think I'm probably past concerts now. AND they're horrendously expensive...

Incidentally, if you want to see a really good music documentary look for "Searching for Sugarman", about a guy (Rodriguez) who is a superstar in South Africa, but a manual labourer in Detroit. Truth is stranger than fiction. Besides on circuit, I think I saw it on Apple TV, and I am told that it has also been uploaded to youtube.

Thanks - I'll look for that Aubrey, I am a big fan of Johnny Rodriguez. I didn't know his fame was greatest in SA. Sugarman was great but there are other good songs as well.

Just watched it - really good story! I'll try and get the DVD. Not sure why my "crowd" in those days called him Johnny Rodriguez but we did - even though its wrong. He seems like a really good person, as are his kids.

It's well worth the price of the CD -- then play it really loud!!!

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
