This album is fantastic in its own way. Sure enough, Emerson's skill is shown remarkably in this large compilation of songs, even more so than with ELP (the piano improv)…
Did you ever wonder how high the valves should lift; what happens when you scale it up or down; how big the inlet passage should be; why small engines run so fast; how heavy it will be; how the flywheel effect changes with size; how to set your lathe for greater accuracy; or how to check tapers and angles? Rudy describes and illustrates his real world approach to problem solving on these and other subjects in the shop and at the drawing board. He includes an outline and drawings of examples used in the DVD presentation.
Much like two years prior, 1996 was an active year for the band, when DIRTY LOOKS released another two full length studio albums in the same year, namely 'Rip It Out!' followed by 'Slave To The Machine'. Henrik sounds so much like Bon Scott in "Something In You" that it's uncanny. Original guitarist Paul Lidel is back in the fold. A heavy slab!
SOUND IT OUT is a documentary portrait of the very last surviving vinyl record shop in Teesside, in the North East of England. Starring Tom, Kelly, David, Daniel, 70,000 records and the good people of Teesside. A distinctive, funny and intimate film about men, obsession and the irreplaceable role music plays in our lives. High Fidelity with a Northern Accent. Got any Makina ?
