Brian Auger’s Oblivion Express 

Looking in the Eye of the World

Brian Auger’s Oblivion Express
Looking in the Eye of the World
(True North)
Auger made his name 35 years ago. One could easily be unaware he is still touring and recording, groundbreaking chops intact. He played keyboards on notable numbers from the Yardbirds’ “For Your Love” to the Absolutely Fabulous theme, “Wheels on Fire.” Daughter Savannah sings now, and son Karma drums. The sound is supper-club funky, with little to alarm Auger’s fellow seniors. Still, he’ll inject colourful note clusters when he can. Amid covers of Marvin Gaye, the Doors and Donovan, a couple instrumentals stand out. “Meet Mr. Eddie” and “Soundcheck” should satisfy fans, freaks and historians.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
