=>Jim's Corner: No Illusions
  =====================

Greetings Friends !

It's no Illusion !  You really have received an new issue of TATW with a lot of news to tell you about all things Triumvirat !  So much to tell and so little time.  I think I'll have a Double Dimple, sit back, and put this new issue together.  Speaking of Illusions, in case you haven't noticed, this year is the 25th anniversary of the release of Illusions on a Double Dimple, my personal favorite Triumvirat album.  And what could be better to celebrate, than to remaster the album and release it in time for Christmas this year ?  Well guess what ?  It's really gonna happen !  Read the article below for more info.

The concerts in Saint Louis were a real treat.  So many fantastic musicians gathered together, playing together.  And these guys had so little time to rehearse together, it was amazing what they were able to do.  Alaska did a great job, Barry Palmer sang his heart out, and Par Lindh gave a fantastic performance with spot on playing of their material, my favorite being the title track from their latest album, Mundus Incompertus.  Not to mention the rendition of Spartacus at the Off Broadway was nothing short of magical.

I've gotten the itch to tweak the website here and there once again, and who knows, maybe even a whole new look will be coming soon.  You never know.   There is a new Spartacus Forum, that will have multiple forums, and will be moderated.  Hopefully, this new software will help control some of the malicious postings that we've had recently.  I have traced these posters, and fair warning, next time their provider's system administrator will be notified so that appropriate action can be taken.  We cannot tolerate juvenile behavior on our boards.

Sorry to say that the progressive rock news in this issue is a bit old, so forgive me if you've heard about these things already.

There's lots of Triumvirat news to share with you this time, so I'll let you get to reading it all !

So how are things in your corner of the world ?

Peace,

Some of the extra tracks to look forward to: live versions of "Deadly Dream of Freedom" and "Capitol of Power" from the 1975 Spartacus tour on that CD, and "Timothy" featuring Helmut Koellen on vocals to be added at theend of "Illusions". Also recently unearthed at the EMI vaults in Cologne was a version of the Beatles' "She's Leaving Home" produced by Juergen Fritz and featuring Barry Palmer on lead vocals, and Helmut and Elke Koellen on backing vocals fom 1976. Helmut's 1977 "You Won't See Me" album is also being digitally remastered and will be out soon as well.

=>Palmer/Alaska/ParLindh Concert Review
    ================================

Posted by Kevin Behrndt on June 07, 1999 at 04:23:25:

Awesome. The only word to describe virtually four hours of progressive rock.

Alaska: Excellent keyboardist. Agree with previous poster that the words sung by drummer/vocalist Lewis were difficult to discern the way it was miked. I'm not crazy about his voice but the instrumental soundscapes were gorgeous. Some of the songs too wordy.

Alaska played instrumental backup to Palmer and his band for "I Believe" and "Spartacus". Keyboard parts were virtually flawless by O'Hara--just like Jurgen Fritz. I was hoping they would play more of the instrumental parts of Spartacus but they did not.

Palmer's voice sounded great I thought, but backstage he said he was suffering a sore throat and apologized.
His solo stuff was good, more pop oriented, not really like Triumvirat.

I thought the Alaska keyboardist was great--but Par Lindh is simply awesome. I completely disagree with previous poster. His playing is as virtuoso as it gets. Rick Wakeman is maybe in this league. Par Lindh blows Keith Emerson away. Beautiful majestic sweeping organ playing.

They played a few Triumvirat songs also, including Waterfall off A La Carte sung by Magdelena Hagberg, not Palmer. I was disappointed they did not play more Triumvirat, but they may be playing different stuff at Monday's show.

Par Lindh is an unusual band--true "classical" rock dominated by beautiful synthesizer and organ combined with hard rock blasts of guitar and drums. And I think I'm in love with the lead vocalist Magdelena--beautiful voice and stunning looks to boot. This may be the world's tallest band also--everyone is tall and lanky.

Overall, there was a delay at the beginning which made the concert run past midnight, and there were some technical glitches, but considering the amount of equipment, the changes between sets, and the unusual venue, for $18 this was a steal for four hours of progressive rock. And you could chat with the musicians between sets and after the show. I was disappointed in the crowd size--I don't think there was more than 150-200. I thought St Louis would fill the Church venue. These musicians deserved better and we all need to spread the word and support this great music. Overall--8.5 out of 10.

=>Triumvirat Tribute Concert
    ====================

Posted by Kevin Behrndt on June 08, 1999 at 02:48:06:

Come on people...Let's hear some reactions to the progressive rock extravaganza held in St. Louis this week. Where are you fellow Triumvirat fans?

I, much to my wife's displeasure, spent 2 of the last three nights listening to some great progressive rock. A truly unique experience. My hats off to Joe Toohey and Russ etc for making this happen. I'm sure it was a lot of work and a financial hit, but for those that were there, it was well worth it.

Random thoughts on the second concert at Off Broadway.

Surprisingly, technical glitches aside, the sound was probably better at Off Broadway, especially for the vocals. This time you could hear the words sung by Lewis of Alaska more clearly. Unfortunately the flow of their show was interrupted several times by computer keyboard problems (how bout a handy old mellotron for backup?) but when that was resolved they were great. Did not have time to play as much of their album, but did a great version of Tarkus by ELP. With all the ELP we heard this weekend it sounded like an ELP tribute at times.

Barry Palmer sang pretty much the same set, capped off by great versions of I Believe and Spartacus. John OHara of Alaska really shone with an awesome solo to conclude Spartacus. Disappointed they didn't stick "March to the Eternal City" in there somewhere.

I meant to ask Barry Palmer what was up with Jurgen Fritz reforming Triumvirat for a new album and whether he was interested in being a part of that but did not get a chance. If you read this Barry, tell us the scoop.

Par Lindh and Barry did "Deadly Dream of Freedom" but that was it for Triumvirat material--no Waterfall tonight.

Finally, Par Lindh Project did a more rocking oriented set since Par did not have the Church organ or grand piano to utilize. They did not play as much music but what they did play was blistering at times.

Magdelena Hagberg was more animated and just as enchanting. What a find she is--beautiful voice, a violin player, and you can't go wrong with those looks. I have nominated myself Chairperson of the Magdelena Hagberg Fan Club. At times, PLP can sound a little like Renaissance in their more pastoral moments, but their intense drummer pushes them into hard pounding rock after the mellow interludes.
Par Lindh is simply an amazing keyboardist--this band is better than 90% of the music out there, and its a shame so many are missing the boat.

All the musicians were very friendly and approachable making this a unique experience, which will be interesting to "relive" on video. Let's support these great musicians and lets see more reaction to these concerts.

=>New Yes Album:  The Ladder
  ========================

Here's the official press release on the new album:

YES is mixing their anticipated new album, The Ladder due on YES Beyond / BMG Entertainment on September 28. YES features the classic line-up of Chris Squire (bass guitar), Jon Anderson (vocals, acoustic guitar), Steve Howe (lead guitars), Alan White (percussion), Billy Sherwood (guitars) with the newly added Igor Khoroshev (keyboards). Bruce Fairbairn, legendary producer best known for his work with Aerosmith (Get A Grip, Pump), Bon Jovi (Slippery When Wet, New Jersey) and Cranberries (To The Faithful Departed), had just completed making The Ladder prior to his death May 1999.

YES, formed in 1968, has been on the leading edge of progressive rock music for over three decades. YES has created some of rock's most enduring hits including "Roundabout," "Seen All Good People" and "Owner Of A Lonely Heart." To date, the band has sold over 28 million albums worldwide including the unforgettable albums Fragile and Close To The Edge. The Ladder will mark the 30th Anniversary of the band's first album release YES, released initially in 1969.

"Yes create sort of a classical modern pop: a wacky mix of Stravinsky, Moody Blues and Vangelis scores...Their vocal harmonies have always been one of rock's most epic sounds." - Los Angeles Times, 1997

"Yes has aged better than fellow classic rock icons the Who and the Rolling Stones because its music has always been based on experimentation and virtuosity." - Chicago Sun Times, 1997

Keep up with the latest Yes news at Yesworld ( http://www.yesworld.com ) .

=>New Dream Theater Album
  ======================

To qualify for induction, individuals must be born in Canada or have spent their formative years there, have made a national or international impact in their field, and have worked in that field for a minimum of 10 years.

The new cement stars were unveiled on May 27th.
