I'll be damned. Never heard of them whatsoever, yet they have a pretty lengthy write-up on Wiki.
Yeah. Strange situation with them. They're an American band but are relatively unknown in their home country. In the UK though they're much better known. The song in that clip was a #2 hit there and they had several other hits in the UK as well as a few albums that made the top ten, including their most recent one. I only first heard of them because a friend of my brother's had spent a year abroad in the late 70's. He came home with some cool records from the UK.

Lou Reed's classic album New York is getting the deluxe box treatment in September. Sadly, no surround content.

I was actually thinking about this one recently. On the original album, most songs have two guitar parts, played by Reed & Mike Rathke. In the stereo mix the two guitar parts are panned to opposite sides. I thought it could be a good 5.1 mix if they just brought the two guitar parts to the rear speakers, again on either side. Alas, it isn't happening.

Anyway, the box includes a disc of outtakes, demos, b-sides, etc... Another CD with live versions of every track on the album, plus a DVD with a complete live performance of the album that had previously been available on VHS.

Ironically, on the back of the original VHS, Lou wrote "by the way, a part two to this exists in the vaults. Write the record company. Why wait for me to die to hear it. After all, it might be a while." Sadly, Lou is no longer with us, and we still don't get to see the second half of the concert.

OK. I didn't know Bill Withers was singing lead on Grover Washington Jr's song, Just The Two Of Us. I know, I know. Whatever. Just shows how much I "haven't" listened to Winelight. It just didn't hit my radar...as in 1980, well, you know. I was a rocker, with nothing else in my arsenal. haha
