Caught Live (5): Sight 'n' Sound @ Cannock 28/05/16

#1,119: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Sight 'n' Sound continue to be one of the most renowned Midlands harmony bands after almost fifty years and not a few members including Mike Sheridan, Rick Price, Roger 'Ollie' Spencer, Geoff Turton and the late, great Kelly Groucutt. Therefore, another trip to see Sight 'n' Sound perform at The Nest in Cannock last night [Saturday 28th May] was always on the cards for ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF].

This was the fifth occasion that Yours Truly KJS has had the pleasure of seeing and hearing this reformed quartet deliver not only their legendary four part harmonies but also their accurate live renditions of classics by the likes of The Eagles, Kansas, John Miles, Queen and, of course, ELO - alongside their own 1976 radio hit "Dance With Me", a superb [surprise] version of 10cc's "The Things We Do For Love" and not a few others. Sight 'n' Sound completely rocked the proverbial house with fantastic vocals and wonderful musicianship that would be at home in much larger venues. Their ELO Medley continues to impress and the keyboard/vocoder antics of Paul Trappett were again spot on despite a brief power outage! The vocals of Brian, Neil and Warren continue to be of the highest order. Special mention needs must be made of the sublime guitar craft of Brian Eustace which, at times, was as impressive as it was jaw dropping. This was another bostin' Sight 'n' Sound show. If they are playing near you ... go see 'em!

Sight 'n' Sound performed: "We Built This City" ~ "Can't Fight This Feeling" ~ "Hard Habit To Break" ~ "The Longest Time" ~ "Bohemian Rhapsody" ~ "New Kid In Town" ~ "Hotel California" ~ ELO Medley: "Wild West Hero"/"Sweet Talkin' Woman"/"Mr. Blue Sky" ~ "Music" ~ "Carry On My Wayward Son" ~ "The Things We Do For Love" ~ "MacArthur Park" ~ "Dance With Me" ~ "How Long" ~ Four Seasons Medley: "Let's Hang On"/"Working My Way Back To You"/"Who Loves You"/"Oh, What A Night [December 1963]" ~ "Don't Stop Me Now" ~ "Any Way You Want It" ~ Queen Medley: "Fat Bottomed Girls"/"A Kind Of Magic"/"Hammer To Fall" ~ "Desperado" ~ "We Are The Champions"

Sight 'n' Sound are: Brian Eustace [Guitars/vocals], Neil Craddock [Bass/vocals], Warren Shaw [Drums/vocals] and Paul Trappett [Keyboards/vocals].
