Compelation Album : LUSENET : Isle of Light Forum : One Thread

Have you though of doing a 'best of NMJ' album? Here are my suggestions for the album I would buy for myself and my friends

Flying P.E.A.C.E. The Man and the Deer Wings and Rings - not previously recorded I think! The Touch Fools ....Fallen Angel Beside the Waters The one on Ship to shore that starts "The lady who stands on the beach with her son..." and a belter to finish, I'll think about it - the hares leap?

Not bad eh?

Totally agree with Water Road. My all-time favourites (on the songs side) are (and this will come as no surprise to Nigel) the somewhat overlooked "Beside The Waters", and the totally wonderful "All in All". Mind you, "Behind The Stones" is making a pretty good bid.

Looks like a double album then :-)

dear Anna, you have proposed an interesting and worthy selection of NMJ toons. However, in my view, no NMJ best of album would be complete without every track on 'Sentinel'. Well, at the very least, there should be 'Water Road' - my favourite NMJ song, for some reason.

having spoken to NMJ it appears that Ship to Shore has in fact been digitally re-mastered so watch this space it should be available soon. Have you had a chance to listen to 'Behind the Stone'? It's got to be the best so far, get it for Christmas like me!!

Good idea,but time spent in between two speakers mastering or engineering sounds off old master tapes takes a very long time and I am doing my best honest.The 'Angels over Water ' album was of course partly a compilation with 30 minutes of new material at the time of compiling the other tunes from the old tape masters and it took a few months to get it into print.The new songs album has been developing for seven years as the first recordings for it started back then from songs that audiences kept requesting. The finished recordings took from July 98 to Feb 99. Maybe 2000 will see two more CD's released.'All we need is the time'.Who can tell which song this line is from.Prise for the person answering Peace. Nigel M.J.

It's from "Fools" (Sentinel). Howzat for a 20-year old memory?? Now, where are my keys....dammitt...:)

P.S. No prize necessary - the postage would be ruino

YES! It is from Fools Of The Finest Degree. You obviously have not suffered any memory loss from the passing of two decades. Must have been looking after your brain cells. Prize is we will share the postage with you when you next buy an album. Why is it so costly to send things to the states. Is that how they make all that lucre? Tour coming up so frenetically busy for a while and will not have much time to answer forum questions but thanks a lot and its nice to be in touch with those for whom the music rings a bell or two.
