No G4s in "Whiskey in the Jar"? Cool Notes.

Also, why other thread/what happened to the other?

It was crappy. And this came from the original creator of the thread, Ray, who decided to re-create it.

Bunch of F4's in the chorus.
Sounds like a A#4 at 2:17 "Breakout"

Yes, "Jailbreak" has an A#/Bb4 on "Breakout!".
He's definitely gone higher than A4, I even recall a thread having more Bb4s.

Out In The Fields

Post  Clem on Sat Sep 21, 2013 7:36 am

Can't believe there isn't anything for 'Out In The Fields'. Phil's verse melodies go down to C3 (not that low a note for him, but they sound very bassy), and then his backing vocals in the chorus bottom out at D2, with some nice spoken D2s in there as well ('No flag has ever stopped a bullet... from a gun').

Yeah this is one of those old TRP1 threads that wasn't very thoroughly researched, there's pretty much nothing from "Black Rose" either even tho there are tons of note on that album (I recall B2s in "With Love" and some F♯2s in the backing vox of "Got to Give it Up"), I also recall a live version of "The Sun Goes Down" where he hit a sung C♯2, I'll see if I can find it later.

What are the plans regarding these old threads?

Any note that sounds bassy can be counted as a low note, if you ask me.

Yeah, I suppose they could be open to debate. What someone considers bassy someone else might not hear it that way. Pitches are a lot easier to draw a line under as low or not. But if it sounds low then it could go to a discussion and it could be decided from there.

Like most things on this forum, I think it's ultimately dependent on how the person who's documenting the singer's range views it.

Anyone check his stuff on the album Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of War of the Worlds?


I hear few sung F4s and G4s here, just casually notewatching. More spoken parts too, but not sure if there's anything noteworthy in those bits...
Btw, that's an excellent album. It's, like the title suggests, a musical adaptation of the War of the Worlds book, with spoken parts by Richard Burton(!!), as well as vocals by Phil, Justin Hayward from The Moody Blues, Chris Thompson from Manfred Mann's Earth Band, David Essex, and Julie Covington. It's very good, definitely check it out.

Can't believe this was never mentioned (probably their best known song)
F4s in the choruses and at 2.28 is a good example of the G♯4s within this song.

There are tons of A4's, a Bb4 belt and some weird gritty 5th octave growling in "The Rocker".
