    I have the SNL 25 year music box set, and it's great....but it's worth getting those first 5 complete seasons for the music. Dylan doing 'Gotta Serve Somebody' is awesome, as are many more. Too bad they stopped doing the complete season thing after those first 5.
     
  2. I believe you are right. The album released by the man himself was, of course, Of Human Feelings. :)

    The SNL Music Box is an essential purchase if you enjoy live performances

    It looks like those are just the individual volumes from the Box set

    That Elvis Christmas tune by Plant & Co was a great performance. Was that 14 Karet Soul doing the backing vocals ?

    Do you mean "save only one of the two from a burning building"? If Vickie were in there, she'd be urging me to rescue Kate.

    If it happened, it might guilt Kate into being a tiny bit more productive, knowing one of her biggest fans actually sacrificed her life for her. Maybe write a song about it.

    No, she was not, and MTV basically refused to air new music videos by her shortly thereafter.

    Somewhat unbelievably, I'm an American who probably has never watched an SNL performance as originally aired. Therefore, I can't contribute as expected to in this thread.

    All she was guilty of was pointing out a huge evil criminal conspiracy that everyone would know about a few years later.

    I think it was already widely known in Ireland. That she went so over the top on SNL probably was her mental illness bubbling up. What a career she could have had if she'd gotten mental help in the early 90's.

    (Probably time to get back to musical performances here.)

    The Magdalenes in Ireland, but also hiding sexual predators in the US. I don't know about anybody else's feelings, but slavery and child rape are two things that should always be exposed, and are definitively indefensible.
