Another beautiful ballad from the Alan Parsons Project, this is 'Time' taken from the live in Colombia concert (well worth watching).

Just got the new vinyl in of Tea for the Tillerman 2. I guess I thought it was going to be more of a straight remake vs a reimagining, so I’m not sure where I fall yet -
WOW!!, that IS different. Can understand you not being sure. It has a certain something to it, though.

Huh, and here I thought the album was all new material, but in the style of the original. Sounds more like one of those tribute albums by a collection of artist fans, which I might prefer? The original was one of my very first albums and I played it to death.

Then i think you’re the target audience for the new album. I have the original, but never played it often, as it’s in terrible shape (someone else played it to death before I got it). But I don’t have that emotional connection to the first one, so I sit here and wonder what the hell he did to songs like Wild World, while you enjoy how it’s developed over the years. I will say there are some songs much more close to the original, and sound great just with the age in his voice now.

Yeah, I do have that emotional connection, which is why I think I'd prefer it if other people covered the tunes on the album. It's easier for me to accept alternative takes from others, I guess. For me, Tea for the Tillerman was such a unique, original sound and approach that didn't need reimagining, and new songs in that vein would've been interesting to me (but maybe not to him!). ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
