I've been lucky to see a few amazing gigs over the years. One of those was Jeff Buckley at Manchester University Union on March 1st 1994.

He was an unknown. Making his UK debut. The first thing you notice is the voice. So beautiful. Yet so powerful. So powerful infact that I remember quite a few people fainting and being carried out.


I relived that night tonight on the balcony. The wind coming in off the Japan Sea makes it really cold. I can't believe it's 18 years ago...

Tuesday's training:

Rollers - ride to the music - Jeff Buckley's Grace (58 mins)

Mojo Pin 120 HR / 100 cadence

Grace 130 HR / 100 cadence

Last Goodbye 140 HR / 100 cadence

Lilac Wine 140 HR / 100 cadence

So Real 150 HR / 100 cadence

Hallelujah 140 HR / 100 cadence

Lover, You Should've Come Over 150 HR / 100 cadence

Corpus Christi Carol 140 HR / 100 cadence

David L. :

I share your views about the power of this music. Mojo Pin and Hallelujah are on my "playlists". But I have never found it the kind of thing I would cycle to or ride on a trainer (if I did ride on a trainer). It meanders and pauses, winds and twists, ...

David, thanks for commenting. Yes very powerful.

I too wouldn't ride the trainer if I lived on your side of Japan!

Yes the album meanders and twists. One of the reasons why it is so good. If I know an album before I ride to it, I will target songs to ride easy and hard to (Hallelujah, Lilac Wine, Corpus would be easy). No problem going hard to Eternal Life or So Real.

For me there are two types of training music. The stuff to do hard or interval work to (think Chemical Brothers, Underworld, Prodigy). And the stuff to get sucked into (Jeff Buckley, Calexico...) which are the background to what most of my winter rollers will be, riding in HR zone 3.

In the dark with the wind blowing and rain (soon to be snow) blasting me occasionally, it's actually easy to turn an album up and get into it. With two young boys it's the only time I get to listen to album like it should be listened to: from start to finish, with no interruptions.

Anyway, I'm trying to ride to a different album each time, so any recommendations appreciated!
