UB40 played Caesar's Coliseum here on Thursday. They were fantastic. So good I'm disappointed that they only played 1 1/2 hours. I could have gone for more. They featured a chunk of tracks off Signing Off, in anticipation for their UK dates. Didn't miss Ali (that's a compliment as to how they good they were) until Red Red Wine. The only track I wish was done a little better. Overall an amazing show. So as always we open the show with a track they played at the show (a favourite of mine as well).
Two hours doesn't last very long anymore. I ran out of time again. Didn't get to the Dinosaur Pile-Up lp, next week for sure. Of course, in just a matter of a couple weeks there be hardly any new material at all. That's OK because I've got some special Rewind! shows in the works for the lead-up to the holiday season. Stay tuned for those announcements.
Remember you can stream the show online at www.cjam.ca and download it through the archives if you missed it. I'm always open to requests. Call during the show or message me through this blog. If I don't have it I can always make sure to feature it the next show. There business done, now the goods;
