Really hoping someone will record the performance as London is too far to get to.

Just trying to work out which of his own songs I would most like to hear Darius sing.

I think I remember you saying he would take requests. Are you collating them in advance, megham, or will there be cards or something less formal?

I think he may already have decided BT. No harm in choosing though as I can always send them on

That's fine.

Personally, I'd like him to dump the swing songs, yes, even his own.

I'll be really disappointed if his new stuff is in that style. I'd probably buy one copy and file it away.

He sounded as though he wasn't going down the 'swing' path. Which, I must admit would please me as I'm not that keen on too much of that kind of music. My mother loves it though

It's not so much Darius because he does sing them very well indeed, but rather the fact there has been a procession of average singers who have jumped on the swing album bandwagon since Robbie Williams' very successful album.

My reaction frankly is Really? Not another one !

I don't want to feel that way about Darius's songs.

Darius has a great voice and those songs, even his original ones in that style, just don't really do it justice .

I'd like him to sing some of the lesser known songs - eg Mercury Rising, Only You, Now or Never to name one from each group.

I suspect he'll have to include Colourblind.

Live Twice always gives me goosebumps when I've heard him sing it live.

There have been so many different requests that he may just make up his mind himself - I think it'll depend to some extent the backing he has in this.

I'm happy with just his guitar or no backing at all - his voice is that good!

I didn't have my usual camera and suddenly realised I was filming him on his side - sorry about that. This was the only unreleased, unrecorded song so was the only one we could make public. I think, by the reactiobn, the whole thing went well, if a bit on the crowded side
