Yep in Argent, especially as Rod Argent and Jim we’re cousins.

Didn't Rodford also play in Argent and Charlie too?

Jim Rodford, bass player, The Kinks, Phoenix (I think?), but I remember him with The Zombies, saw live a while back. RIP

In response to Cyrille Regis, BBC 2 repeat the Adrian Chiles documentary, Whites v Blacks, How Football Changed A Nation, unbelievable true story, worth watching

Green, Glen Allen - 1987 Down The Avenue


ARTIST: Green, Glen Allen
ALBUM: Down The Avenue
LABEL: Home Sweet Home Records
SERIAL: 7-01-002339-5
YEAR: 1987


LINEUP: Glen Allen Green - all vocals, all instruments

TRACK LISTING: 01 Love Is Waiting Here * 02 Down This Avenue * 03 Living For Babylon * 04 Eternity * 05 Look Up * 06 Turn Up The Music * 07 A Million Miles Away * 08 Out West * 09 Famine Of The Heart * 10 Not In The Grave

Glen Allen Green followed up his 1985 debut 'A Living Fire' with this one, 'Down The Avenue' two years later. I quite enjoyed the bombastic nature of that debut, but second time around, Glen decides to become Nashville's very own Aldo Nova. Somehow, the results don't come off as successfully. Perhaps outside assistance was required to provide contrast in terms of musical delivery of ideas.

The Songs
To be fair, the songs are reasonable in quality, but they don't jump out and grab you by the short and curlies. The opener 'Love Is Waiting Here' wasn't a great lead-off. Personally, I think love got bored, and took off soon after. The title track 'Down This Avenue' is full of bouncy hi-tech rhythms and gets things back on track. 'Living For Babylon' contains a punchy arrangement, with brass parps as a filler. I didn't care much for the ballad 'Eternity', next. 'Look Up' is more like it. CCM/AOR central, it's good that Glen knows his bread and butter, musically. 'Turn Up The Music' is a mainly piano led affair which does track along quite nicely. The last two tracks wind it up things in solid fashion. 'Famine Of The Heart' and 'Not In The Grave' despite the unusual song-titles are well worth hanging around until closing time.

In Summary
To wrap up, this was the last of Green's two albums, nothing has been released since. Both worthy of acquiring if you are a CCM/AOR fan, but at a pinch, I'd say 'A Living Fire' gets the nod ahead of this one, though I am happy to have both in the collection.
