Only one gripe tonight with Magnum, the set list. It is great to hear all these classics but can we drop a few 'On A Storyteller's Night' album tunes and have some songs back like 'Back To Earth', 'Changes', 'Soldier Of The Line' or 'Pray For The Day'?
Rotating some tracks a good start. And given that Back Street Kids and the excellent Vigilante were the only two songs from the Polydor era, the lack of the band's chart hits becomes even more surprising.
Kingdom Of Madness and The Spirit were almost sole representatives of the Jet era that they could (or even should) expand on.
Thunder's Harry James guested on drums due to Jimmy Copley being ill (best wishes for a speedy recovery to him), although bar the new album Harry James would be familiar with all the songs.
Mark Stanway's keyboards filled the sound and the hall well. A solo piece before Sacred Hour closed the set and as usual an early finish at the Mean Fiddler - 9.45!
Fantastic music, superbly performed and presented. Yet Magnum have such a huge and amazing catalogue; they should use it well to avoid disillusioning all but the casual listener.
