Steinman had an unerring ability to successfully cannibalise his own failures. The solitary album by Pandora’s Box didn’t even warrant a US release, which enabled him to subsequently uproot its single, It’s All Coming Back to Me Now, and present it to Céline Dion, who turned it into a multi-platinum 1996 single.

Sidetracks And Detours are always delighted to receive recommendations from readers of stories and artists they feel we should address. Peter Pearson has suggested we look at some satelite subjects around Mark Knopfler and Dire Straits. peter and i are good friends but I must have somehow misled him into thinking we have a staff here about the size of Sky News, Don´t worry though Peter, our researchers are already out there, sifting for gold. Thanks, seriously, this will be good fun

My view on all this might be best summed up by something Hugh Moffatt (I think) once said to me in an interview, that ´we must intend what we write for live years of travel´, and when we have done so , according to Roland Barthesian theory, the author ´dies´ and the song belongs instead to the people.

subtitled The Notes The World Was Not Ready For, illuminates the historical significance of the compositions that helped create a paradigm shift in American music, race relations and culture. It is an engrossing story of "mysterious callings" that led Ellington to choose Randall Keith Horton as his assistant composer, conductor and pianist in 1973, and the author's serendipitous connection to Horton.
