Another 'lost' post / Lilac Time / Stephen Duffy
This is the 2nd post I've "lost" recently - earlier this week, I lost a John Cale post (that I remembered writing). Today, I can't even find an index for what was written for today. Still, I'm going to post anyway - as today means a new 'month index' in blogger.
So, live and direct - been playing Lilac Time CD's when I rest in th evening - best one lately was "Astronauts" and the single "Dreaming" from '91. "Looking For A Day In The Night" didn't make as much of an impression on me. Odd, I always seemed to prefer Stephen Duffy's solo works to the Lilac Time - but now I can barely tell the difference between the two. It seems possible to me that I could "obsessively collect" his works, but...seems like a lot of other people already engage in this activity.
He never came to the U.S. and played at all, did he? I mean, since dropping the "Tin Tin"...I would've loved to see him in concert around the time of "London Girls" ( = the "Duffy" CD from about '95).
And I have yet to buy any of his expanded re-masters, though I'd like to. So, Indolent Records went out of business, and that's why I have an Australian copy of "I Love My Friends"? And it seems like there's one of his 12" singles that I can't find - and that's because there's a doubt that it even got released?

Welcome to November. I have some silly stuff planned for November, for the blog.
