Today I had been planning to plug a new release, but the release date seems to have been delayed so I'll hold on to that for now. With a gap in the schedule and absolutely no idea how to fill it I turned to the "this day in history" page on Wikipedia in search of inspiration.
The first entry for 27 January reads "AD 98: Trajan succeeds his adoptive father Nerva as Roman Emperor". Now that sounds suspiciously precise for an event that took place over 1900 years ago, and they were also on a difficult calendar back then. But it serves its purpose.
Here are a couple of tracks from "Firm Roots", the 1969 album by Alan Trajan (no relation - his real name was Robertson and he hailed from Livingston).It is very much in the style or Procol Harum and Pete Brown, and not bad at all.
"Dislocated Seaside" - Alan Trajan
"Time" - Alan Trajan
Other notable 27 January events include Dante Alighieri being exiled from Florence in 1302.
