How was it?  Have yet to hear this.

Have heard these (not recently, though)...someone said on the last BOC chat
that "Power" was not the SummerDaze version, I hope this is true for a couple
of reasons.

"CGLoD" sports a really sharp guitar hook, and lots of inviting spaces for BD
fills...the times I saw them do this (and on the tapes I have) the soloing was
very very good, seems to be a structure that lends itself to interesting BD
guitarwork, or at least stuff that appeals to me...for instance I have never
heard a solo on "Take Me Away" that really grabbed me.  Don't know why (unless
it's the spirit of Aldo Nova fucking everything up).  This song is a EB vocal,
for those who have not heard it...kind of mid-tempo.

"Still Burning" (did he drop the G again?) I thought suffered from the
repetition in the chorus:  "Burning for your love" repeated either 4 or 6(!)
times in the chorus, in addition to having it in each of the verses too.  Did
a quick listen of a tape just now and think I counted 37 uses of the word
"burning"...not that long a song either...I cannot conceive that he/they did
not receive some negative feedback on this, will be interested to see what's
changed in the last couple of years.
