So, I was feeling a little down over the weekend (for various reasons, both personal and due to the terrible events on the news) and, almost randomly, I put the Thick as a Brick (1 & 2) Live in Iceland CDs on, and they really lifted my spirits. I enjoyed the tour both times I saw it, and had only listened to these CDs a couple of times since buying them last year. All I can say is that it was fun to rediscover the treats on offer: the current band really worked for me, as did Ryan O'Donnell's contributions (although I have always liked him). There were times when Ian's playing raised the hairs on the back of my neck. It all worked, in spite of a couple of mistakes on the second CD during TAAB2. I was surprised that IA allowed a live performance with some glitches to be released officially, but I actually prefer that to having him tweak it in the studio afterwards.
Anyway, sometimes what we need to lift our spirits can be right there under our noses!
