Alive 26 Jul, 2004
Buy this album. It is amazing. Last month, the Red Hot Chili Peppers played three nights in Hyde Park, London. I couldn’t go, but really wish I had. Still, the next best thing is here: a double CD culled from these gigs, Live in Hyde Park. This album came out today, so I had to buy it en route to the office. I’m very glad I did too. It’s worth the price alone just to hear the Peppers’ amazing rendition of I Feel Love! I gather the CD is only available in the US on import , sorry. For once, us Europeans and Australasians get first dibs
Moving on, I’m conscious that benpoole.com has been very quiet of late. This is due to a combination of home commitments (three kids takes it out of you I tell you), lots going on at work, and — of most interest to you — some secret squirrel stuff, soon to be revealed on this site (promise). Actually, some of it isn’t all that secret, but please, humour me.
Exits looking suitably annoying and mysterious.
