Hans Peters: Best Years

Best years? I guess they are coming now. The shows are great, the music more then fantastic, the cd/dvd's overwelming. A tour? Man, you really know how to suprise us. Thank you thank you thank you thank YOU!

Thank you. Danke Had now finally time to look at the excellent photos from the Royal Albert Hall by Simon Watson. You solve big feelings with me, and remind me of my last concert in Manchester. Very much regret that I do not live in England, would otherwise have upon each 2.Konzert. Sincerely hope that it's me again soon possible. Great pictures, thank you that everyone can see it. Greetings from Germany

Hatte nun endlich mal Zeit die hervorragenden Fotos aus der Royal Albert Hall von Simon Watson anzusehen. Sie lösen große Gefühle bei mir aus, und erinnern mich an mein letztes Konzert in Manchester. Bedauere sehr, dass ich nicht in England lebe, wäre sonst wohl bei jedem 2.Konzert dabei. Hoffe sehr, dass es mir bald wieder möglich ist. Tolle Bilder, danke dafür, dass sie jeder sehen kann. Grüße aus Deutschland

RachelPAtoSH: Vicky CD

Vicky - have you tried the CD on a second/third player? Some old players seem to be unhappy playing any CDs over 65 minutes long, I understand. we will happily swap the CD if you're sure it's faulty, but the replacement will come from the same pressing (500 at a time, and no other faults found...). Let me know....Helen In The Comeuppance Shop

StefanieR: hints for classical accorion .......

Dear lover of art, Dear music lover, Dear Steve, professionals on the accordion are eg Ruslan and Elena Kratschkowski (Russian sister and brother as far as I know). They play modern, recently composed pieces and classical music. MY favorite by them is "Pictures of an exhibition" by M. Mussorgsky. One sample: HAVE FUN AND ENJOY! Sincerely yours, Stefanie

Vicky: Faulty CD

I attended Steve's concert at Symphony last Sunday evening. We purchased a copy of Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel live in Birmingham CD. Unfortunately the last track Tumbling Down on disc 2 is faulty. How can I exchange the CD for another copy?

Also with a.s.s.concerts nothing over a planned concert. It in addition, class would find, if I could visit a concert once again in Germany. The latter in Manchester was super. Envy all, which reported also here yes in great words of the experiences. Greetings from south Lower Saxony Thank you for contributing, olsch455 We are considering a Germany tour and an Orchestra/Choir performance. More to come.....

olsch455: Germany

Naja, auch bei a.s.s.concerts nichts über ein geplantes Konzert. Fände es aber auch klasse, wenn ich mal wieder in Deutschland ein Konzert besuchen könnte. Letztes in Manchester war super. Beneide Alle, die ja auch hier in tollen Worten von den Erlebnissen berichtet haben. Grüße aus Südniedersachsen.

StefanieR: other live dates?

Hello, chekker from Germany! It's wonderful to read that there were other fans from Germany in London (and maybe in Birmingham). I would like to support your question in the last line: Any plans for gigs in Germany? Whereas concerts in the Netherlands or in Belgium would great, too! I remember that Steve used to tour with a.s.s. concerts and promoting, Hamburg. You may look at Best, Stefanie

chekker: RAH

Steve, it was a special night in the RAH on Saturday. It was terrific to have this experience: 3,500 people singing along to your tunes. And they all seemed to have aged very well. Your best line: Remember, girls, when you used to throw pants at me ... me and Tom Jones." We had come from Germany for the concert, and it was worth it! We had been to your concerts in Bonn and Cologne a couple of years ago, but your performance at the RAH topped everything. Any plans for gigs in Germany?"

Diane: RAH - still floating

Can't seem to leave a post, cherie! First two have been rejected. Don't know what I'm doing wrong! Anyway, to try again, head still buzzing from Saturday night. Songs going round and round. I had tickets for the Mayfair, Newcastle upon Tyne on June 14th 1974, aged 17, and couldn't go when my dad took ill. It was very poignant to finally get to see Steve after 40 years, not too far from the date of the original concert. Can't wait for the next installment!

Stef: the Stockhausen - Bach - Mozart - CD

Dear music lover, Dear Steve, just to let you know that the three pieces on the CD mentioned would be best listend to from a good sound system. Especially the "Glasperlenspiel" by M. Stockhausen has its quiet, calm sequences. Other instruments: timpani, drums, (big) harp. The conductor was Gil Raveh. Hope you enjoy listening! Best regards, Stefanie

StefanieR: UK concerts

Dear Ravers, are you, like I am, still moved by Steve's performances? I AM, oh yes!!! I struggle for the proper words to describe his magic. Such powerful, incredible way to fascinate thousands of people! To be under such a positive spell when he is onstage (and offstage...) is an immeasurable experience for me. Seeing him onstage .... is so important that it seemed to make my life whole, complete. That's what I experienced in London and Brum. Thanks so much, Steve!

robertotechno: Fab night

Steve, thank you for all the hard work and commitment. You always play like you're living the dream. We travelled from Frankfurt and only got to the hall with minutes to spare, but soon relaxed once the start of Hideaway kicked in. Great sound, great lighting effects (Sebastian, wow!!), and great players, and great fans, too. We chatted to several in the interval and they were as gobsmacked as us. Best Years on tour next year? YES PLEASE!!

Tuesday, 01 July 2014

jollyroger: RAH

Special night, that! I was in the back row of the stall, in front of boxes and the sound was immaculate. At times, it was like listening to a CD. Well done to Steve's sound crew - that hall isn't an easy one for rock music. And the lighting was imaginative and on-the-button timing-wise, even a little 70s retro at times! A historic night.

PeteB: Birmingham Symphony Hall 29th June

Thank You Steve! At Birmingham Symphony Hall last night, you spoke for a while about taking opportunities when they presented themselves. After 39 years and many, many concerts, I finally got the opportunity to shake you by the hand as you left the stage. An opportunity I took and you reciprocated for which I sincerely thank you. A small gesture on your part which meant a great deal to me. Thanx.

charlie875a: R A H

thought the gig was good, and from the reports it was, but i must say it depended where you were sitting. I was in row P and the sound was awful, had it not been steve i would have left before the end of the first session and demanded my money back. I know i was not the only one, i talked to some one from Holland and she was dissapointed as well. I do not blame Steve in any way, i love the man but i came away very flat so now looking forward to the next gig i can make. Its a long way to drive from Plymouth , into central London to hear a muffled concert but i will say i was glad to be there just the same.

Markyd27: My uncle david dowsett

Hi, I don't know if you you remember my uncle david dowsett or not from braintree, yet my dad tells me you used to go nans house in edinbourogh gardens. The reason I contact you is that I have a back list of songs I've recorded on my iPhone and need an opinion if they are tolerable to ears as I can't get feedback easily. Kind regards mark. If you have time to listen to them please let me know and I will forward them to you. Thanks again mark

pjuk: RAH 28/6/2014 continued

Sorry - got a bit too verbose there but I did want to add my final paragraph which was... Congratulations and thanks to Steve and all for a superb evening that may well find it's way into my list of top ten best ever gigs. I'll admit I'll probably be off trying to find something else again but class and genius is permanent and the Royal Albert Hall gig was a reminder of that.

pjuk: RAH 28/6/2014

I fell in love with pop / rock music when I was a small boy and bought records from the age of 10 at a time when The Beatles had just broken nationally. Much as I loved pop, I never expected it to last and, in fact, it was the immediacy of the art I liked and even admired. Being a bit of a seeker of new things, I've always tended to find bands / artists - love them - and then move on trying to find something different. Apart from the aforementioned Fab Four, there is no artist who I've got more than two or three albums of and I'll cheerfully admit I often don't listen to a band's later efforts at all. So, if I'm listening back, then the test for me is if the music I loved at the time has resonance and can move you years / decades later. And so to Cockney Rebel. I loved 'Sebastian' when I first heard it and couldn't understand why it wasn't a massive hit. But the first two albums? Phew! They were just magical for me and I similarly didn't understand the adverse comments from the 'knowledgeable' rock press (of which, of course, I was an avid reader). I bought all the singles too, saw the original band once (Dagenham Roundhouse!) but had started to move on by the time of 'Come Up & See Me' - although somewhat guiltily as I felt Steve Harley was (rather oddly) an underrated talent. Nevertheless, 'Menagerie' and 'Psychomodo' are two albums I return to again and again as they simply stand the test of time, despite the myriad of bands / artists and styles I've listened to since, they never fail me. Saturday night at the RAH was a simply wonderful and surprisingly moving experience then for someone who usually dips in and out of things over time. I actually couldn't initially sing the refrain from 'Tumbling Down' as I had something hard and jagged in my throat as I and 3,500 other people all rose spontaneously with arms aloft to sing (I managed it eventually though ;) ) Congratulations and thanks to Steve and all for a superb evening that may well find i

Kath Tyler: Birmingham

Congratulations to Steve and the band, choir and orchestra. I didn't think the last time they all performed there could be matched, but it definitely was, what a night! Thank you so much. Steve was on great form, love the old stories and humbleness (is that a word?) of the guy and Steve Norman was a hoot! Please Steve keep doing these shows until you have covered all your albums.........fantastic!!

musky: oh what a night

saturday night, royal albert hall. goes straight in to my top 10 gigs of all time. was worried about sound in rah cos i saw jools holland there last year and it was apalling, but the sound last night was fantastic.every song was delivered brilliantly. these 2 albums deserve a full choir and orchestra and how well they sang and played last night.found myself watching steve norman a lot of the time, very amusing.brilliant night, cant wait for best years tour!!!!

Fox: 40 Years on and still amazing!

Royal Albert Hall Saturday night is a night I will never forget, Steve and the band were amazing as were the orchestra and choir. The bonus of getting Stuart Elliot and Jim Cregan on stage for the encore of Make Me Smile was remarkable!. I first saw Steve on the Best Lives tour, on the final night at Hammersmith , yes that night it was recorded. I received my Definitive Version album for Amazon this week and listened to it constantly at home and in the car. I have seen Steve about 20 odd times in between those two gigs , feels like i have gone full circle ... but wait ..did I here rumor there is to be a Best years/Timeless Flight Tour? ....Watch this space :-)

new cross boy: 40 Years On and I missed Brazil again!

Royal Albert Hall, Saturday 28 June 2014. Incredible, fantastic, superb. The Birmingham Symphony Hall show was great but this was on a different level altogether. The sound quality was immense and Steve and the boys were on top form (as always). I confess that when Stuart Elliott and Jim Cregan joined on stage for the final this New Cross Boy was moved to tears. From Hideaway to Tumbling Down every song was brilliantly executed. Have Sebastian or Death Trip ever sounded so good? I was transformed back into the 17 year old who on 3 July 1974 had missed Brazil play Holland in the 74 World Cup to go to see Cockney Rebel at the Victoria Palace. 40 years on almost to the day I was STILL prepared to miss Brazil play in the World Cup. It was a good decision! p.s. to the gorgeous blonde lady in the orange and white dress in Arena E about row 12-ish sitting in the aisle seat eating an ice-cream in the interval - WOW!!!!

SueRogers5: Royal Albert Hall on Saturday 28th June 2014

It is getting ever more difficult to find words to describe Steve's performances ! I have seen him in very small intimate venues and in bigger ones, like Shepherd's Bush Empire, and he has never failed to deliver a stunning performance, which leaves you wanting more ! Saturday night at the Royal Albert Hall, he was just outstanding, as were the other members of Cockney Rebel, the Orchestra and the newest member, Steve Norman ! 3,500 people on their feet, in unison, singing the words to Steve's songs, will, I am sure, live long in Steve's memory, as it will for most people who are in the fortunate position of being able to see him perform live. Love and thoughts to Lincoln !

Fox: The Best Years..

I received my Definitive Version Of The Best Years yesterday from Amazon, and have been playing it ever since at home and in the car when at work. It is amazing. I love the two live discs from Hammersmith as I was there on the night it was recorded, that being my first time that I saw Steve Live. I have waited 40 years to hear the recording of that special night. Now 40 years after (and after seeing him 20 odd times since) I am going to see Steve again at the Royal Albert Hall. I can't wait! x

BowRose20: Tom Jones looks better natural.

Hi Steve, I saw you at the Gateshead Sage last night and wanted to say how brilliant you are. I don't think there is anyone quite like you, you and the band performed beautifully and your craic was very funny. Does Steve Norman do that every night? I loved every minute of it.

I lost my dear father the 31th of May. When I first heard "This old man" at the Academy in Dublin in 2010, it touched me deeply. It was a song made for my father, too. He was that kind of man. Thank you Steve for this beautiful song. It gives comfort.
