Clouds of Loneliness
 
'Harmony' is an album I don't always go straight to if I want to listen to GL.
My first choice is always 'Old Dan's Records.'
Recently I was listening to some GL songs through my audio streamer and selected 'Clouds of Loneliness' at random.
What a superb song.
For me, it's the best song on the 'Harmony' album.

I like that one too Martyn. Gord has played it at the last few shows I've attended. I also like Sometimes I Wish from Harmony.

Hey Martyn,

I know what you mean about not heading straight for Harmony but when I do remember it I enjoy it quite a bit.

NO HOTEL is pretty cool and River Of Light is a very nice tune. I do lean towards listening to albums in their entirety but not always.

Peace,

Bill :)

Hello Bill.

I, too, tend to play albums in their entirety.
The only one I don't is ' A Painter Passing Through.'

When I first heard it, it was so different, for me at least.
After 'Waiting for You' it, frankly, came as a disappointment.
OK, I've modified my view but it still the least played GL album.

I can't get hold of 'Uncle Toad Said' and 'Ringneck Loon.'
I do like 'I used to be a Country Singer' & 'Red Velvet.'
Of course, they weren't written by Gord.

My outstanding track is 'Much to my Surprise' without a doubt...

Martyn.

i agree with River of light as best toon on that album. if Jeff Lynne was twiddling the knobs, it could have been a Traveling Wilburys song
