  1. Interesting! I am running a fairly old version of EAC, could re-install I suppose, but thought I'd give this a try first. The pop down on mine shows CUETools DB Metadata Plugin V2.1.3, so selected that. Reloaded the CD and it works! Track information is now showing, although no CD cover info (no big deal). Thanks for the tip.
  2. Not quite at the same level, but I have had similar problems with a Yamaha mini system connected to a Panasonic TV with HDMI ARC. Most of the time it works just fine, but sometimes the ARC handshaking over HDMI just seems to get itself confused, with the TV screen displaying the Yamaha's home screen when it is set to TV mode. When that happens it refuses to play ball, and one has to resort to the 'Windows' solution (although its not Windows), ie:- Switch it all off, disconnect from power and wait for a while, then reconnect and switch on again.
  3. Jason and the Argonauts. Loved this film when I first saw it as a kid, and its still a favourite.
  4. Well, somebody had to post this.
  5. Mystery Train starring Screamin' Jay Hawkins
  6. Welcome aboard Gerry from another Adelaide member (a '55er')
  7. Debut album by British blues band The Groundhogs - Scratching The Surface (1968). My copy is a 2006 CD remastered from the original tapes (same cover photo but without the text). Somehow I seem to have largely missed this band, but they have been around in one form or another from 1963 pretty much up to the present day. They took their name from a John Lee Hooker song, and toured with him when he toured the UK in the mid 60s. Apparently he was impressed with them, and recorded an album with them in 1964 ("... and seven nights" re-released as "Hooker and the Hogs"). This line up consists of Tony McPhee - guitar and vocals, Steve Rye - harmonica and vocals, Pete Cruikshank - bass and Ken Pustelnik - drums. Their sound is very reminiscent of early Fleetwood Mac, maybe with a bit of Canned Heat thrown in. Apparently Tony McPhee turned down an offer from Peter Green to join Fleetwood Mac, and also declined an offer to join John Mayall's Bluesbreakers after the departure of Eric Clapton (what was he thinking?) This is quite a raw, no frills, down to earth album, recorded in two four hour sessions in October 1968, and it sounds great.
  8. I watched my blu-ray copy of this just the other day. The imagery in this movie, along with others of its era is influential in quite a lot of later movies. Every time I watch Dark City the references to Metropolis, Nosferatu and The Cabinet of Dr Caligari in that movie are very obvious. The documentary on the blu-ray does mention the influence on Blade Runner, especially regarding the city scenes.
  9. The Traveling Wilburys, Volume 1 and Volume 3 Obviously recorded many albums as themselves or in different bands, but only two albums as The Traveling Wilburys.
  10. Orange? Red? Did it change colour? If it did, then I didn't notice, but I quite like it the way it is now.
  11. Tremors. Kevin Bacon and friends battle against an attack of 'graboids' in the Nevada desert. It spawned a series of follow up movies as well as a television series. I've only seen the first sequel but wasn't all that keen on it. Probably give all the sequels a miss and watch the original, its a lot of fun. Monsters. A low budget British film about a US photo-journalist escorting an American tourist to the USA through Mexico, which has been quarantined after being infected by aliens. I found this an oddly compelling film, even though you don't actually get to see the creatures until quite late in the movie.
  12. I certainly hope not either, but there is no way of knowing of course. In the meantime another order I placed quite some time after this one arrived within a reasonable time (different provider, but also from the UK). I will do as they suggest, give it another week before contacting them again if it doesn't arrive by then.
