Thoroughly enjoyed my first Coast experience on Saturday night, well worth the 300 or so miles of driving that day! :D

Bumped into a certain Mr Bayne as well :)

That was on Saturday night for me at the Ironworks Inverness when I saw COAST live on stage for the first time. Spine-tingling. Its hard to find words to properly describe it. Awesome doesn't do it justice. Opening with The Song of Angus (and quite a few got to meet the Angus in question) through to the track that hooked me, America, it was an hour and a half of........... I'm sorry I just cannot find the right words.
I dont think I have been blown away in such a fashion over a group ever before. Perhaps, hearing Hells Bells by AC/DC after the death of Bon Scott comes close. Other groups, I have listened to their music and got into them, but I'm gonna say it a million times, this was something special.
Not forgetting the support acts, who were excellent.
It was in incredible weekend for me, meeting up with Jinty and Andrew H agaiin and meeting so many Riggies for the first time, Tiz, RC, Spud, Stirling Castle, Fifs, the Celtys, Lord and Lady Trousers, Jacqui, Davey T, and many, many others. And also got to meet the band and their manager too, very, very nice people.
Thank you all for such wonderful warm hospitality. :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love: :love:


From one soppy old fool to another (no offence!), you've just brought a grown man close to tears reading that. Was great to meet you at long last sir. Let's do it again sooner rather than later.

Fantastic gig in the Ironworks on Saturday! The band were sounding incredible. Everyone played with such emotion which really came across.

Brilliant meeting up with everyone and it was really good finally meeting some people for the first time after so long!

Can we do it all again this Saturday please?

p.s. I still can't believe I sold the raffle tickets! Good way to talk to everyone on their way in though!

I started recording something on my camera but then became aware that Iain was stood behind me. He wouldn't have said anything, I just felt a little uncomfortable......... I felt like I was picking his pocket or something :lol: :lol: :lol:

I finally just got around to buying this on iTunes. I am looking forward to listening to it on my walk tonight.

The only drawback to iTunes is no CD notes. Which song does Ian play on?

"The Beat of You" - for which he co-wrote the lyrics with Paul Eastham. Actually, I understand that the lyrics were more or less all Iain's work with just a bit of fine-tuning by Paul who of course wrote the music. :music: Duncan Chisholm also plays fiddle on that track. :rose:

I have listened to it three times. I like the first few tracks but have to say I find the majority of the songs good, but a bit of a let down from the high energy stuff on the debut CD. It's not that I don't like them, just a bit sleepier than I expected.

Does anybody else think the guitar at the end of the first song is very much like the end of the live version of "Running to the Light" from the last anniversay tour?
