Tony mentioned in an interview that there was a beautiful instrumental passage in "The Border" that later was edited out in order to create space for more songs on the album. Would anyone happen to know if that passage was ever re-used? My theory is that it became the instrumental passage in the song "Still It Takes Me By Surprise."

I'm almost willing to call this my favorite of all Tony's albums... I don't know, ask me again tomorrow. There were a lot of low points (read: Jayney Klimek), but the high points are some of the highest of Tony's career. I mean, "I'll Be Waiting", "That Night", and "The Border"... there's no reason that any of these shouldn't have seen huge commercial success. And I can rock out to "Big Man" in front of all my friends and not be embarrassed in the slightest. Crank it up, this song is AWESOME!! cool

This one is probably my 3rd fav, Raincloud, Big Man and Thursday the Twelfth being my favorites.

Did anyone notice the 'Thursday The Twelfth' reference in 'Everybody Hates Chris' (repeated in the UK on the Fiver channel until recently)? grin

It was in a scene relating to horror films. I'm guessing someone who works on it has connections to Esoteric - Chris's headmaster at Corleone High was Principal Edwards, and they've just reissued a couple of albums by Principal Edwards Magic Theatre.
