  1. Country Life
  2. Siren
  3. Avalon
  4. Manifesto
  5. For Your Pleasure

Tonight I'm in 4th place place but well behind JARVIS by the time of the Encore round. My game so far had gone like this:

TuneUp....5000/5000...a 10 way tie for first place!
OnBeat...9000/14000...4th/13 in five way tie...IAGO wins round.
JukeBox...12980/20000...6th/13...JARVIS wins round and is first with 15629.
Triviaoke...19740/28000...4th/13...JARVIS wins round.

Well the answers looked like it would be something about Bryan Ferry or Roxy Music. 'Were these all done by them?', I wondered. I own a 20 song greatest hits cassette but couldn't tell them apart.

Question:...This Roxy Music album features "Dance Away" and "Angel Eyes".

I didn't know this but thought it would be Avalon although that obviously had the hit 'Avalon' on it but did it have the others too? Bill MADDOG and Richard BERGIE and me and the people in The Regulars group were playing together as a 'Superteam' but didn't know for sure. Well everyone guessed 'Avalon'. I'd been right on the other Bryan Ferry Encore question that they'd ever asked.

Correct Answer:...4. Manifesto

[NTN extra fact:...The 1979 album reached the British Top 10 and peaked at #23 on the American charts.]

I'm wrong and fall to 6th place of the 13 players. I finish with 9870 points which is only good enough to place 6304th in North America. I earn 1500+ Players Plus points for not meeting this week's 21000 standard. The bar was 980th(?) in North America. STOS is the only one right and wins the game.

Here's how the rest of the bar did:

JARVIS	22666	x	11333	5756
KELLY	20756	x	10378	6114
