When You Lose Someone So Young - John Miles - Rebel (Vinyl, LP, Album) download full album zip cd mp3 vinyl flac
Top international reviews. Music - the song: is a big production,gutsy sounding epic of a song. The opening track on the Rebel album;this sets the tone for a truly remarkable long player. The moving and personal: when you loose somebody young,is a touching moment on the album. Alan Parsons? Producer perhaps. Excellent re-mastered sound;with bonus tracks and very good sleeve notes etc.
All songs performed with optimism and good attitude by John Miles - he is truly a rebel - with a cause - on this album. Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again. By the mid s, prog rock was a spent force and pub rock was giving way to the awful sewage-laden tide of Punk and New Wave.
Only a few artists such as Genesis and Al Stewart continued to carry the flag of melodic rock, LP the time was just right for someone such as John Miles to step forward with his own particular brand of pop-tinged rock. Not only that, but it's stood the test of time as well and I've waited many years for this very well digitally remastered edition, though oddly the jewel case doesn't bear the usual sticker proclaiming the fact. You have to look pretty hard in the small print to find a line which says "Mastered by Tim Turan at Turan Audio".
I've never heard of Tim Turan apparently his mastering studio is in Oxfordbut he's done a good job and this reissue is a welcome update, sonically, on the first one from as long ago aswhich was a bit soft sounding, not least in the bass. This was a great album when first released and it's still a great album today, so you can buy this new remastered edition with confidence, particularly at such a modest price. From the perspective of someone who never heard the two bonus tracks at the time, for me they add nothing of interest, but then Rebel really doesn't need augmentation, it's fine as it is, then and now.
One of the tracks was John Miles' 'Music', a track that I must have played until the grooves were almost worn out so, on seeing this CD for sale here at a ridiculously low bargain price, I decided that it was worth buying for that song and, if any of the other tracks were good, then that was a bonus.
Firstly, this album really is worth buying for 'Music' alone. I have often shared the sentiments of this song and, in it, he has managed to capture the excitement and majesty of orchestral rock in a song which builds to a sensational climax, resplendent with strings, brass and soaring, heavenly backing vocals. John Miles' vocals are also simply beautiful - this song is a true classic.
Thankfully, and what makes this album a great purchase, the whole album is also very good. Perhaps none of the other tracks ever hit the heights of 'Music', but Miles has the ability to write exceptionally good songs and makes great use of dynamics, giving everything he touches a very classy, slightly classical feel. Other highlights include 'Everybody Wants Some More', 'You Have It All', which features a great guitar sound and - at just under seven minutes long - sounds like a long-lost Eagles epic, 'Rebel', which reminds me of 'Lace And Whiskey'-era Alice Cooper and 'Pull The Damn Thing Down', a brilliant mixture of classically-tinged ballad and good time rock 'n' roll.
Elsewhere, there are echoes of seventies greats in other songs such as Billy Joel and Stevie Wonder and yet you couldn't say that Miles was at all derivative - he has a distinctive and unique voice and this highly enjoyable album stands alongside other great releases of the era with integrity intact.
A fantastic addition to the collection of anyone who loves classic rock. I remember I worked in at music store in october and found the vinyl edition, I had to have that. Since I have bought all his albums until mid eighties. When You Lose Someone So Young - John Miles - Rebel (Vinyl came to my hometown in Roskilde Denmark, in the summer of for The Festival, but I was too young to go. Still the remastered album is great, much better than previous CD edition, but comparing it to other remastered albums of the decade, released these days, it could have been much better cleaned and enhanced.
Being a producer myself I could would love to put my hands on the mastertape. There's nothing wrong with the recordings, but the Music with the musicians should be crisp and clear. Alan Parsons always had high standards, but this is probably just a stereo 2 channel remastered version.
Hopefully Alan Parson one day is asked to do a new remastered of this great album and I'll be back to buy it on Amazon. But for now, the very best version you can get and very good buy if you love John Miles music, you won't find anything better. Bought for my son in law for Christmas, he loved it. Load more international reviews. I have been a great fan of John Miles since the mid'.
Sad, the man is a very underestimated musician that should have received a lot of praise. I have all his albums on tape and I'm now purchasing the CDs. What a knockout album!
I've been playing it since it arrived a week or two ago. There's not a bad track on it. This is a must have album. Buy it - you won't be disappointed. Remembering the past. Like him or you dont. It is a Christmas present for my dad, I'm sure he will love it as he played his cassette version over and over again.
Been looking for a while for this classic. Really enjoyed listening to these tracks again. Quality is fabulous too. Very glad to own a copy of this LP again. First had it some 40 years ago. Superb album, if you like John Miles you'll love this album. Great album with his hit single 'Music' which is brilliant, pity many don't remember or haven't heard of John Miles but will enjoy the vocal, instrumental, guitar combinations of his tracks.
