Matching performances according to the jacket on my CD which arrived today.  I may be dating myself by using the term  "jacket" but  it does seem appropriate for a cardboard case.  I had been expecting it to be from the hr1 concert a few years ago, but it is the 2013 perfomance. It 's interesting to hear the resurgence of vinyl LPs.  There are many who claim to hear the nuances which are lost on my unsophisticated ear.

Actually looking forward to my morning commute to give it a first listen.  No turntable in the car!  Ah but there is one still lurking in the basement. LOL
Ask the Band / Good morning guys! A question about using a lyric for a book.

Dear Foreigner,

I'm going to be publishing a book. It's all small time but the book will be on sale for money. I would like to print these lyrics from your song "I Want to know what love is" before one of the chapters:

"In my life there's been heartache and pain
I don't know if I can face it again
Can't stop now, I've traveled so far, to change this lonely life
I want to know what love is, I want you to show me"

I want to be respectful to you and was wondering the cost for reprinting your lyrics.  Is this irritating/disrespectful from an artist's stand point ? You would receive credit in book.

The book is fictional and not in bad taste at all. It's not objectionable, racist, ugly.

Thank you

Sue- the titles are exactly the same on the CD you mentioned. But are they from the same recording? No idea, it doesn't say so on my copy.
Andreas (TheSpick) talkes about a vinyl and the cover is a different one, too.
Great find BTW, Andy ;-)

I wonder if this is the same acoustic performance included as a second disc in some editions of the "I Want to Know What Love Is-The Ballads" which had a European release in Feb.  My copy is in transit.  It is shown on Amazon as"Exclusive 40 minutes acoustic concert live in Germany, previously unreleased"

Does anyone know?

Well, I have only been reading here for too long. So long, that I forgot my details and had to re-register...

Anyway. Just today I discovered something that passed my attention somehow and might be interesting to the die-hard collectors.

An Acoustic Evening With Foreigner   
Recorded at Dornier Museum, Friedrichshafen, Germany on July 31st, 2013 / previously unreleased acoustic concert
1 Double vision
2 Long, long way from home
3 Say you will
4 When it comes to love
5 WAiting for a girl like you
6 Dirty white boy
7 That's all right
8 Fool for you anyway
9 Feels like the first time
10 Juke box hero
11 I want to know what love is
12 Hot blooded

This vinyl LP was released as part of the Record Store Day Germany on April 19th 2014. For a look at the cover use this link and scroll down a while.

It seems to be one of those "first-on-RSD"-releases, because according to another website, the record will get a general release here in Germany on the 4th of July... It's an official release by Edel Records / Ear Music, not a bootleg.


Absolute thanks Jeff!!  It's been a crazy busy day and I've been reading thru your concert in snatches.  A bit like a great book that I hated to put down, re-living the night with you.  An  incredible pleasure. I don't know how you capture the experience with such illustratative detail, but I thank you for sharing wiith us all.

Good thoughts and prayers ( if that's okay with your life's outlook) for your continued healing.  What a relief when doctor's not only can diagnose, but also have a way to correct the problem.  Healing music therapy by FOREiGNER.  Can't think of better energy.

Looking forward to my show.  It's just under a month away.

Hopefully you've seen my review right now. Since it was the first review of the tour I put allot of detail in the other acts.
What a great review !!! Again!!!! I don't know what to say that hasn't been said ...
As I knew about your health issues one of the best news was to learn that you could make it to the show. Can't tell you how happy I was for you. Well ... you know ...
Thank you so much for keeping us updated with your wonderful write-ups.
Take it easy and recover completely. Tons of love  :-*
P.S. ... and I remember Bo and Jim, too  :D
Jeff, I don't even know what to say that hasn't been said a million times before about your reviews. Truly. Spectacular. Your reviews brings us there as if we were with you. Prior to reading the review (or any concert review for that matter), I always Google images of the venue so I can get a better idea of the stage and audience set up. In my mind, I was there along side! And like Meryl said, SO glad you were well enough to go.

Most importantly, glad to hear your health is improving!

As far as the mushy part (lol)? I think someone is cutting some onions in my apartment, I gotta run...  ;)

Be well my friend!


PS- I remember meeting Bo and Jim, haha.
Wow! That is a great review, Jeff! So glad you were well enough to go.
