I was hoping to highlight a different photo in the set – a beautiful one of Jim – and had contacted Angel for permission to use the photo to link to the set. He had granted permission for use but wanted to watermark the image in question first and asked me to send on a link to which photo I wanted to highlight.
From there I had no response. I’ve waited a few days, and was reluctant to badger the man, so will highlight his wonderful images via this route instead. And you’ll see the pic of Jim I was hoping to highlight in amongst the set anyway. You can view the full set by CLICKING HERE
Still on the tidying up process of my Flickr account (I underestimated the number of images I have in my account. 20k was not quite right…the figure is nearer 34k! That’s A LOT of images to be sifting through and sorting out!)
The image below was posted by Jim on January 3rd, 2016. Underneath it was my comment to the news about it.
Just on 25 months later, I got my first listen of it…and by heck was it worth the wait! What an incredible song! No wonder Jim was already excited by it! Romantic alright! It’s frigging BEAUTIFUL!
The only gripe I ever had was that…much like Liaison and Bittersweet, it ended up a bonus track on the deluxe edition of Walk Between Worlds. Jim gave an explanation as to why a few days after the album’s release.
But, unlike the aforementioned tracks on the deluxe Big Music album, Silent Kiss was destined (so far, at least – due to the nature in which WBW was to be showcased) never to get a live airing.
Will it ever? Highly doubt it. Will I love it any less because of that fact? NO WAY! It was absolute love upon first listen.
A couple of weeks back, I was asked whether I’d like to work on a photo of Jim taken at one of the US shows by a lady that attended. She had seen some of my work on Instagram and really liked what she saw and asked if I’d like to try something with one of her photos. I had full creative control on what to do with it.
Tonight I went to work and something pretty fab unfolded, so here is the result.
Thanks to Vidhya @mysteriousdays2 on Instagram for giving me the chance to play around with such a fab photo. I’m so happy you’re happy with the result.
Jonesy always goes off on tangents. “So, Richard Jobson…how’s he doing?” It’s like…”you’re Scottish. He’s Scottish”. Lol
Jim describing Roger Daltry as looking like a “condom full of walnuts” when he walked out on stage. Lol.
I read an interview with Daltry recently…he said he doesn’t even work out! It’s just how his body is! What a sod!
Wow! Quite possibly the best review of the tour so far! It may never be surpassed!
A great set of photos with it too!

A great review – even if there is a little bit of misinformation (yes, I’m being pernickety AGAIN, Jim – but if a job’s worth doing…). I did love the bit about Jim’s splits and lunges and if reviewer Nick was to try it himself, he’d have to call 911 in the end! Lol
Also…can’t quite put my finger on WHY I am loving the new shirt… 🤔🧐 (I’m such a flipping perv! Lol) You can read the full review and see the rest of the photoset by clicking on the first image of Jim.
