from the Seventies
Brian Robert Pearce
|Brian Pearce busked the streets
and bars of Europe between the years 1994 and 2000. In addition he
busked in New York while participating in the TIGHTROPE musical, a play
written by Ken Post [ with Bonnie Burns].
The journal exists, at present, as approx. 750,000 hand written words formatted in about 55 segments
amazing myself here!
Thinking this was my favourite, then that, only to find another act
that was really my favourite. Or was it? One strong candidate for my
Seventies favourite is AL STEWART. His PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE album
was a masterpiece of tension and eery foreboding. It was perfect for
playing the board game 'Risk' with my mates on a Sunday afternoon in
1974/5. LOVE CHRONICLES held sway in Spring, 1974, while I experienced
the most ecstatic period of my life with my love for Judi. Together, we
"All through my seventeenth summer, running together from friends and ties, taking our clothes off and feeling each other through fingers and senses and mouths and eyes. Incurring the glances of old disapproval from eldery, local inhabititants' eyes - oh time - time, we hardly even knew you. You didn't touch us with your lies."
As the armies built up on the 'Risk' board, the song ROAD TO MOSCOW hauntingly played - and if that didn't menace enough, then NOSTRODAMUS would do the job. AL STEWART made it big with YEAR OF THE CAT, but I preferred his early stuff. He had RICK WAKEMAN playing the keyboards on PAST, PRESENT. He had JIMMY PAGE playing lead guitar on LOVE CHRONICLES. 'Nuff said!!!!
