Για τις επόμενες δύο μέρες θα ακούσουμε μουσική και τραγούδια σχετικά με [τα] Φώτα. Ξεκινώντας με το ομώνυμο track από το πρώτο σόλο άλμπουμ του Ian Anderson, Walk Into Light, κυκλοφορημένο στο όχι φιλικό ηχητικό περιβάλλον των early ’80s.
Ο άνθρωπός μας, με full ηλεκτρονικό εξοπλισμό και με τη βοήθεια του οργανίστα [των Jethro Tull] Peter-John Vettese πραγματοποιεί μια ενυτυπωσιακή απόπειρα προσαρμογής.

For the next two days we‘ll have music and songs about Epiphany and lights. Starting with the title track from Ian Anderson’s first solo album, Walk Into Light, released in the unfriendly sonic environment of the early ’80s.
Our man, with full electronic gear and with the help of [Jethro Tull] keyboard player Peter-John Vettese, makes an impressive integration attempt.


❝ Close in, move out to where you want to go.
There’s a crowd out there handclapping slow.
We’re all powered up, switched on, the rig is tight.
Step into joy.
Walk into light.
Never mind what some people say.
They’re going to love you anyway.
Shake off that nervous twitch and feel your strength.
Stand astride the width and walk the length.
Those super-troopers fired and burning bright.
Step into joy.
Walk into light.
Stand tall and be yourself.
You can do it for your health.
Maybe a circus ring, a disco floor.
Do like we do.
And do some more.
A crowded ofice or a party night.
Step into joy.
Walk into light.❞


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the song !
