Description

I'll let you know how it goes in the ninth life. ... Peter Hammill live (audio only) plays here "Cats Eye / Yellow Fever (Running)", accompanied by Graham Smith on violin, from the unofficial live album 'Modern - recorded February 1979 The Roxy Theatre, Los Angeles, California USA'. Originally this song was on the Van Der Graaf album "The Quiet Zone / The Pleasure Dome" from 1977 when Graham Smith was in the band. Smith first wrote the music and Hammill later added the lyrics. During the concert (and on the album) this song and 'Last Frame' were played merged together, so I think that my audio edit here from the album also includes the beginning of 'Last Frame at the end of Cats Eye. The true end is probably around 5:12 or 5:34. At the fade out at the end you might just be able to hear the beginning of the first words of 'Last Frame' ("Pretty keen"). I compiled the video montage myself utilising footage mostly downloaded from YouTube, with some of my own added effects and filters. Comments are welcomed. Please check out my other videos.
