BEAUTIFUL i saw a review that said a of Beautiful, the Carol King story, 'a Tapestry of great hits' (clever eh) well it sure was. Actually Tapestry is one of my all time favourite albums, there is something about the line in the song Tapestry, 'Once he reched for something gold and hanging from a tree, but his hand came down empty' that seems so full of lost opportunity, said so poetically that I could only wonder at her skills. Anyway back to Beautiful, I defy anyone not to enjoy this show, packed with so many of the Goffin King hits and latterly Kings alone, (and a number from other writers of that era), and the story is pretty interesting too. So a big thumbs up from me. Robin Smith

HARD ROCK HELL Hafan, North Wales November 2014 . . .
ROBERT PLANT AND THE SENSATIONAL SHAPESHIFTERS. As aging Rock Gods go Plant certainly looks like a man who has enjoyed the pleasures and pain of a hedonistic lifestyle. Ravaged and bearded he may be but he can certainly hold an audience in the palm of his hand. He is currently touring his upcoming album Lullaby and The Ceaseless Roar with his band The Sensational Space Shifters and I got to see it at The Roundhouse in London. Actually, just about see, even though I was there pretty early I was nowhere near the front of the crowd. Fortunately the venue is not that huge so even standing well back was not a major disadvantage. I rather imagined the audience to be made up of old guys hoping to see a slither of Led Zep, sure there must have been some and sure there was a lot of grey hair . . .
