Both these album highlights were issued as singles.. The recordings were bluesier in places than on its predecessor but still equally impressive. Many album tracks make their debut on CD and have been joined by a raft of rarities and previously unissued material..
Disc: 2 1. Called the The 20th Century Records Albums The Love Unlimited Orchestra box set brings together all seven albums the group recorded for the label, newly remastered from their original analog master tapes. Release date is March He also has plus hours of audio to work with. Sounds as if he has carte blanche to do with as he wants. No idea yet on release dates. Any recommendations for the 10 disc Robin Trower studio albums to be release on Feb 8th…. New Jenny Lewis album announced with a rather expensive Ltd Vinyl version.
And a new Stephen Malkmus electronic album announced yesterday. I see the 2 ABBA songs release has been delayed to after the summer — but they are already talking about a 3rd song as they had so much fun! But, by not reuniting, people will remember us when we were young and vibrant.
Maybe they could release some vintage outtakes instead, and their reputation would remain intact. There must be good reason why ABBA are reluctant to release the two new songs. Amazon AU only ship within Australia. Amazingly this soundtrack has never been released on CD before — and now has 7 bonus tracks…a must buy from me! Unfortunately Paul there seems to be trouble brewing in the Tears for Fears camp.
If you go to Curt Smiths Twitter account you will be able to make you own assessment. You don,t need to print this paul. I just hope they can keep it together it would be a great shame otherwise. Amazon UK has few limited stock of box sets that are on sale…. Bananarama are issuing expanded versions of their last couple of albums if you would like to cover that? And Sophie Ellis-Bextor has an interesting take on her tunes in a greatest hits package with a variety of bundles available to pre-order.
Such a shame — really wanted them. Paul did you catch the Bros documentary over Christmas? Great read and would like to see your overall thoughts on how the series has progressed since then and thoughts for the future of the series? Sounds like HMV may be in trouble again. Time to spend those gift vouchers methinks…. Sleeper new single limited edition of white vinyl signed on the Sleeper HQ website along with signed bundles as well.
For the third time in recent memory , Amazon. Quite what Amazon. The only reasons that I prefered to order them from amazon. Neil Young to issue a 2 cd version of ragged glory in early McCartney just released 2 free downloads on his website of tracks not included on the Wildlife and Red Rose Speedway boxes.
A couple of items on my wish list are showing up on HMV, and matched by Amazon. Cat Stevens is releasing multi formats of his album Back To Earth , the final LP before he quit the music business. It is being plugged on Pledge Music with a May release date schedule. No track listing yet. The album remastered from original analogue tapes to stunning effect at Abbey Road Studios. Back To Earth live tracks, rare demos and two beautiful, completely unheard recordings.
The last love song. Expanded editions of two Bananarama CDs are coming January 25th, Yes, saw that. Double LP with tripe gate-fold! Similarly with Hours though 1 lp. Bit steep in price, but double Outside LP tempting. Wild Life and R. Apologies if already mentioned but Amazon de selling Status Quo vinyl singles boxes at attractive prices: 55 euros 42 euros.
Thanks for letting us know Phil. Absolutely no promotion unlike the rubbish RPO album. Why only mp3? CDs cost nothing to press up these days, Does anyone know if there are hi res files for download? It is said that a download release of Beach Boys concert recordings will follow within 1 to 2 weeks. Phil Collins continues the reissue campaign with the 2 live albums remastered in February. Some tracks proved irreparable.
The Beach Boys release or releases will feature both live and studio material recorded in Decent price Grooves in Germany for about 14 euro. No vinyl release yet. My discs are presently in route, and I intend to not un-seal them when they arrive. Replacement Badfinger discs are being presssed, and they will be supplied as soon as they are available.
The wong masters were used, and by the time this was discovered, it was too late to stop the distribution of the discs. I supplied my address and a photo of my discs as proof of purchase. Hi, Paul. Heads up on the Bananarama deluxe editions of Drama and Viva released by Cherry Red in January — track listing for 2-disc Viva is superb, but 3-disc Drama just might be overkill with two discs of mixes for just two songs!!!! Did anyone else manage to pre order a copy of the limited edition version of the kate bush lyric book?
Had my order accepted and confirmation received so looks ok. Also included is a DVD featuring a new 5. This clamshell boxed set features an illustrated booklet with a new essay by Anthony Phillips archivist Jon Dann. The re-mastered and expanded edition of Seventh Heaven is due for release date on 25th January and is available to pre-order now. On a similar subject to this whatever happened to the rest of those Tony Banks reissues from Esoteric?
Very disappointing. I really think there must be a market for us stuff… especially Still…. According to Banks, Esoteric lost interest, Sales must have been deemed to low.

At last! Further, the likes of Australian high street retail stores e. Perhaps they should look at their own business model rather than try and prevent competition. I have had no end of people tell me that they have had orders cancelled for the items only to go back on sale at higher prices. Once or twice fair enough, but so many times is an insult to intelligence. Signed versions and art prints also available. No tracklisting has been revealed, though the set promises 21 previously unreleased BBC radio performances from off-air recordings.
The more important question is whether Repertoire has uncovered any better sounding tape sources for the radio broadcasts. For me, the DVD may be sufficient reason to buy the set. It can be preordered at Amazon. One more for the odd Christmas album list…. Unfortunately, the release will be download-only.
For all out there waiting on the Egypt Station Spotify green vinyl a friend has just emailed me to say that his order has been cancelled due to limited supplies. Any light you can shed on this, Paul? Hi Paul! I know it was originally planned for a release, and that you actually had a hand in the production of the box set. Any new info you can lay on us? Thanks bud! I wish they would go back and sort out the sound on Everybody Loves a Happy Ending a decent album totally ruined by brickwalling.
Without divulging specifics, what, when a product is so obviously ready for release, holds something like this up? Is it generally legal? The Artist? The Company? Are they waiting for the bigger number? But then why have a 5 year lead in that would have cost a bundle and is dead money until launch and that cash can be recouped. It has to be the oddest of stories in my time here 4 years or so. Priorities, strategy, negotiation, leverage all come into it.
Labels can release things without the artists permission, but these days they tend to prefer a longterm view of working WITH artists and not against their wishes. Interesting short article about Nick Cave and the issue of grief and the loss of his son on the BBC website today.
I only came to Nick Cave late and entirely due to recommendations from SDE and with so much to catch up on he is right up there with my favourite artists. Some guys get all the luck. Satuday post post and still no sing of mine. Post Orifice is no use either, they will only tell me when my parcel is delieverd, not where it is. Eddie Kramer talking about 5. There is a covers album in March The deluxe Low in High School is vinyl only for now and out in December. Morning Starship Jobriath Days Of Decision Phil Ochs Wedding Bell Blues Laura Nyro News from Sony that there are four pages missing from the book in the Bob Dylan boxset.
All they are offering is this link :. I had pre-ordered this from Amazon UK, but cancelled this to get it from you. However, I have just got an email from Amazon allowing me to play or download it. Is this available ad infinitum or does it have a cut off date? If you try to download the audio from a cancelled product, then Amazon will end up charging you for it, so my advice is steer well clear.
If any of those are better than VGPS then they will truly be great.
What would you like first; the good news or the bad news? What it could offer beyond the contents of the 40th Anniversary Edition remains to be seen. A couple of intresting releases live x-propaganda cd available from Claudia brucken,s website and new ep by Fish featuring new studio and live tracks available on tour and from his website. The Specials are to release their first new album in 37 years. Pre-order only from HMV so far. A pity it took so long to get some new material out since they got back together.
New Van Morrison in December! Very, very strange cover artwork. Thanks for supporting SDE and the shop! As you say, they very limited because they were cutting orders from various retailers. I am glad that I spotted this as I have now ordered it here and cancelled my Amazon order as I too would like to support you when I can. Was the fact that you had these for sale shown somewhere or it a case of keep checking the Shop tab. Thanks Peter! The set includes her live albums. Missing are two home recording Song Club albums available to her fans only at the time.
However a few songs from these two releases are featured on a box-set only exclusive disc titled More From the Moon but no track listing has yet been issued for it. Pre-order is already up on Amazon. Made sure I got my order in before letting you know At least they deliver to Australia — no one I know over here could get the Bowie boxed set, Police or Suede.
Neil Young has just confirmed on his Archives website that next archival release will be the Crazy Horse world tour acoustic compilation Songs For Judy. It is named after some audience banter regarding Judy Garland who Neil imagines is sitting in the front row of a show. At the time there were a number of unreleased songs and there are many bootlegs in circulation.
Interestingly , Neill says the compilation was picked by Bernstein and journalist turned movie director Cameron Crowe, a big NY fan. The release date is November 30 and Campaigner can be streamed from his site now. There is an image of the album art showing a sketch of , presumably, Garland, flicking through some papers. Something from Neil Young himself regarding the long awaited nine years and counting! Archives 2 set. On his Neilyoungarchives. Blu Ray is no longer viable for economic reasons. NYA can give you what the blu ray had though by including High Res audio. I actually bought the Blu Ray Archives 1 set mainly for the visual content.
Interesting though that there is a CD package on the way. Thanks, Paul. You do a grand job! He has created sleeves for CDs, both new and archive, as well as graphics for reissued videos such as Rust Never Sleeps. I am guessing the book will be more a visual documentary along the lines of the recent Led Zeppelin release. Hide Intro Live 2. Ghost Nation Live 3. Metal Live 4. The Fall Live 5.

It is probably selling more copies today than when it was released! Paul, do you know why? Cherry red releasing entire catalogue vinyl box set for carter the unstoppable sex machine includes x2 unreleased albums. No CD. Non-Prime buyers have to get them from market place sellers.
Does anyone know if this is just applicable to McCartney? I checked a few other big names andcouldnt find a similar exclusion. I know it happens for non-musical items but this is he first time I have seen it applied to music. Long long promised by the band apprently waiting on Universal and still no sign.
Any chance of email to Universal Paul? Traveling Wilburys volume 1 being issued as a limited edition picture disc on 2 November. The sound of vinyl and udiscovermusic carrying photo and blurb about the album. However, both the back cover and the sleeve that contains the discs list these sixteen tracks for both 5. There is not an option on the Blu-Ray menu to select 5. But perhaps SDE could ask Universal Music whether all the materials on the Blu-ray discs other than the master album takes are intended to be available in 5.
If there are legitimate issues with the Blu-ray discs, I hope that Universal Music will provide an easy way for consumers to obtain replacements. Too bad that for a major release such as this that Universal Music gave the project to a shoddy pressing plant. Of course, the Clear vinyl release is also on its way to me. Let us know what your experiece with this boxset is. The disc will have previously unreleased John Lennon content, but no unreleased Rolling Stones content. The promo material for the new Rush box set does not mention who did the 5. Paul, can you ask around and find out if this is a Steven Wilson mix also?
I know Steven is a huge Rush fan, but he has said recently that he wants to back away from doing a lot of surround mixing for other artists as it takes time away from creating new music of his own. Either way, like the Tom Petty Live Anthology, this has skyrocketed in price on the secondary market. I just bought it on the amazon. No bonus material.
What a waste of plastic. Bananarama limited edition colored vinyl coming in October. I believe a CD is included with the LP. Getting to be an expensive year. Anyone else have this issue? At last the Yuka Fujii book Like Planets is available!! A no-brainer must have for any David Sylvian collector.
It interesting to see the many posts moaning, on the main news thread, about costs for particular items. If this was musical equivalency it would be, at pages, no more than, what? Heads would explode. It shows, to me at any rate, how people do not value music any more. Thank goodness there are companies willing to produce these kind of things and there are people willing to buy them in the world of books. As much as Amazon is damaging things, it is this cheap-as-chips attitude that is wreaking even more havoc on the world of physical music. Sylvian is art in human form. Art has a value, not just a price.
More news concerning the Cherry Red group of labels. The situation was apparently a glitch in the Amazon. This situation was corrected shortly after I placed an order and was forced to omit an item. This means substantially higher shipping charges than Amazon. Thanks for the info Phil. The worse part is not knowing which ones will be still around to buy at a later date.
New Suede Blue Hour Album released yesterday. Signed vinyl at their webstore. Signed CDs already sold out. It may not mean much to those beyond our shores but today the UK lost a genuine talent. Well said Chris. He played on so many records and had an amazing history. Saw him last in Hyde Park supporting Eric Clapton. I shall have a beer for Chas tonight. Chris Cornell career spanning releases. Amazon is showing artwork, but no info as to the contents.

Great target exclusive tracks…track 14 is from the Christmas episode of the tv show and track 15 was a one off single…. The 3 CD version will be limited as well. Plus the 2 CD version of the new stereo mix. The group originally wanted the album to be recorded live in concert, but attempts to record the group live had not proven to be musically satisfactory, so the group recorded the music mostly in the studio, adding audience sounds to two of the studio tracks.
Thanks Phil. As I, and others, have said before your updates are always of great interest to us more mature readers with a prime interest in the 60s, Beatles, Stones, West Coast music etc. It looks like the record companies intend to try to force MQA upon the consumers. This is bad news. If consumers find this unacceptable, it will speed the demise of the CD format. Not about a release, but about packaging from Amazon. I recently received a vinyl PSB Bilingual with absolutely no protection, packaged in a wayyyyy to big box with some wrinkled paper above it.
The result is that the cover is bended on 2 corners, which looks absolutely horrible… I complained with Amazon and since it was the second package within 3 weeks that got in with damaged goods I returned the first one and got an exchange , I finally was reimbursed fully without having to send the item back I told them that going to the post office had to be during my office hours, that I did it already once a few weeks ago, and that if I had to go again, I would gladly invoice them with my missing work hour….
My question is: is there any way to get a decent packaging from Amazon? Maye some well-hidden option? Does anyone have tips? However a ding is a ding and it was caused by being sent in a large box without padding. I contacted Amazon USA, recieved an apology, was told to keep the item and reimbursed in full! I have since ordered a few items from Amazon USA and they have all been perfectly packaged. Have you seen anything about the new Fall compilation coming soon. Called 58 Golden Greats and looks like an old Johnny Cash cover.
Good spot. Golden Greats was the original idea for the 50, album. Get an illustrator to do the same with MES on it! The most important thing about the collection was that it was fully endorsed by Smith himself; and he made one significant change — upping the number of fans by 45, He wanted the number to be nearer a batallion as 5, seemed too small. Shatner Claus Great Title! Iggy Pop is out on the same day. Eric Clapton also has a Xmas album out on Oct 12 — bet the Shatner one will be more interesting. Oh believe me, I completely agree and will likely be getting both the Shatner and Clapton releases.
Like Yes but with Captain Kirk on vocals! CD and Blue Vinyl. Out late Oct. Thanks for the heads-up, that looks an amazing line-up of artists. Seems falling out with Nash and Young has done him a lot of good. The 3 previous albums have been top drawer and the single from this one Glory is pretty awesome too….
Nash and Stills should take a leaf out of his book and up the output…. Not bad. Hi Paul, do you know if the Barry White album box set due soon is going to include any unreleased stuff. Dear All….. I always opt for standard shipping. So there is a product cost and additional is shipping cost…. My query is that in either case will i be charged import duty when the destination country is not one of UK, US, France and Gemany….
Norway is not part of the EU so any item bought from abroad is subject to import tax. As for the charge itself, there is also a handling charge to pay on top of the duty. This can be quite high. Thanks a lot….. Hi Paul, Just wondering if you could share this with all your Aussie readers who have been missing out on your deal alerts due to geo-blocking. Amazon AU have the soon to be released Led Zep.
It definitely the 9 disc version. Great news Phil. Abbey Road would be very welcome also. By the way, thank you for all your informative posts. The announcement will probably be earlier Phil. Nothing to get excited about. The extra LP has b-sides but only the studio recordings, none of the live ones. Ordered it straight away anyway! Paul, any details on the R. Wilson has created a 4. Waiting for a deal alert on Heavy Horses but no luck yet…this news uplifts my spirit. Two drummers have announced archival projects from their respective bands, but of course not providing a release date or any other details.
Dave Davies to release Decade an album of lost 70s tracks, some have been finished off with vocals and extra music. Phil, thanks as ever for the excellent updates. I was just stating that there have been times over the last couple of weeks when my posts have never appeared. I was assuming it was either a problem my end, beccause the post was not of interest or because I included a link — but I was unsure exactly why hence my recent post. I think I may have provided some fairly decent deal info over the last couple of day? Keep up the great work. All best John. No worries John. Cocteau Twins: Fontana Years box set out 12 October.
Four discs including the two albums for that label, plus b-sides, sessions and the promise of period rarities. Paul, I am still somewhat convinced that there is some technical problem with your forums. On the positive side, that site provides a complete tracklist. Hi Phil I am of a similar age 66 in fact and have similar tastes to you, so always look out for and appreciate your posts. I have been a record collector since and my first 45 and, sadly, I am something of a luddite and have yet to experience the apparent joys of blu-ray, sacd, surround sound etc.
Oh well. Oh joy. He even went back to the monochrome colour scheme. From that point, he played every instrument himself, moving from one to the other. Ultimately we separated them, so they could be treated and mixed differently. It was straight to recording! Under construction since mid, it was finished in , though parts of it were in use prior to that. This song just came out, and he recorded a brief demo. It had a folk type of sound. It was… interesting! I came up with a nice drum track, and then Dave had this idea where he triggered the guitar off the hi-hat on the drum machine.
He jumped up from his chair, laughing. You changed it. Do you mind if I work on it while you go to dinner? I spread the bad news to Mazarati, who were pretty angry. He totally stiffed me. I quit the band shortly after that. He gave me a ton of opportunities, so I look at the good things. We lit candles, the lights were dimmed. Lisa was on piano, with Wendy right next to her. He wanted them to play it — all he would do was the vocal.
We realised that the chair that Wendy was sitting in was really creaky. Quite stunning. And the date was April 21 , which was the date of his passing. Purple and gold dominated the colour scheme. Lovesexy was the first Prince album to be recorded there; subsequently, all of his records were completed in-house, alongside sessions by Stevie Wonder, James Brown, Madonna, Aretha Franklin and R.
The infamous afterparties hosted everyone from Miles Davis to Kendrick Lamar. Neil Young vied with local businesses to utilise the soundstage for tour preparations, rehearsals, videos and commercials. His ashes are on display in the main entrance, in an urn designed in facsimile of the complex.
After disbanding the Revolution, Prince returns with a kaleidoscopic double. Having conceived Dream Factory as a Revolution record, and plotted a further album by highpitched alter ego, Camille, Prince combines both for a triple set, Crystal Ball. He eventually distills them all into a dizzying broth of stark social comment, candy-coloured pop, heartland rock, electro-funk and smoochy soul ballads….
There was one hour session, which was uncharacteristic. He changed tempos, keys and feel. It was not originally intended to be a duet, but Sheena Easton was around and he loved her voice, so he invited her in. I said I had never heard a man say that before, and women want to hear it. FINK: He was sleeping four or five hours a night — tops. It exacted a toll on him.
If he did that for many nights in a row, he could be a bit funny. He could be short with you. It was time for me to go as well. That gave him pause. The bands he created around him were as much for image as musicality. There was a gang mentality he liked to present to the world. He was sadder, because the Revolution had broken up. On the heels of that, he and Susannah [Melvoin] had ended what had been a formative relationship in his life. He kicked a lot of things around at this time. Crystal Ball was a break-up record, slightly accusatory, but these were not mopey ballads, they were high energy, the passion of a couple fighting.
Much of the album was done with me and Peggy at Sunset Sound, but other people came in. Prince forms the New Power Generation, with tour dancer Tony Mosley adding a rap and hip-hop garnish to the soul, funk and swing flavours. He was trying to reinvent himself. New band, new sound.
He encouraged us to do whatever we felt with it, and everything we did that day ended up on the final version. At the time we had no idea what it was, or what it was for. I thought it was a Christmas song! That was spring . Later that year I got the call asking if I was interested in being in his new band. That was the genesis of the New Power Generation.
I was living there! I never went home. Then the wheel would start all over again. Sometimes songs would come out of those jams. Sometimes he would come in with set things. Then he started bringing in some hip-hop. That changed the situation! He realised that rap had changed, and the culture had changed. It was more socially conscious and topical at that time, and he began to take notice and wanted to dip into that area.
It was quite organic. He was fearless. I think it was his idea. I was no longer a member of his organisation, but he would still ask me to play. By then he was pretty much defined as the artist that he was. WHEN: It was a lot of recording us all at the same time. I think that was quite unique for him, that he was able to do that with his band.
Bland, Barbarella and Sonny T were fired in , marking the end of the original band. We were going in! It was a unique time in his musical journey in that he was giving us space and time to shine. Of course he could do it alone, but it became more like a family to him. He got the engineers to. But Levi said he once saw him do a vocal. He was invited n, which was unheard of. He was ully in character. The man was non-stop.
Usually in the studio you play one part at a time, but I would end up having my whole live keyboard rig set up, playing multiple parts at the same time while we were recording. A lot of that ended up on the record. Twenty minutes. Levi kept singing it, and Prince just kept laughing! We tightened up the groove and got excited about it. He said. Hannah Welton [drums] came for an audition in spring , and then Donna [Grantis, guitar] all of a sudden showed up. We were all there a month, but you never really knew what was happening!
I was given a short list of songs to learn and within a week was on the soundstage at Paisley Park with Hannah, Ida and Prince. From that very first session, we had a collective chemistry that was palpable. He wanted to create this mystery. Not only could songs change on the fly, but the arrangements were very open ended. Prince was a phenomenal band leader. We always had to keep our eyes on him, for eye contact, a nod or a hand gesture. We recorded rehearsals to capture tracks for reference — jams, grooves, new songs.
Prince started writing all these songs; we were learning and recording them, but we thought it was just for reference. Everybody was in the same room. That kind of energy keeps you on your toes more than if you record with a computer and a click track. I love the fact that sometimes you can hear everything bleeding into all the mics.
When we had a collection of songs that we felt fit together, they became PlectrumElectrum. He was always trying to keep it moving. I think we would have made more records. There was just so much music in him. Through example and guidance, he taught us so much. With the death of Prince on April 21, A reminder that he could still excite and energise like no other. The trio are pursuing solo careers. Here, we bring you a sneak preview of this lost record from The Purple One and look beyond its release to consider what else his Vault at Paisley Park might hold His modus operandi was such that — whether in the studio, at rehearsal, or onstage — he could record everything to a high standard of audio felicity.
Those are sitting in there, among all the other material that has accumulated over the years. Prince was dazzlingly productive while he was alive. Two songs, times , times . Though at times Prince is clearly feeling his way into these songs, there are no stops and no mistakes. We hear him road-testing arrangements, scatting rhythmic ideas and guitar parts, playing brilliantly fluid piano and flipping through his full repertoire of vocal styles.
These working methods were typical, says his engineer, Susan Rogers. If he had an idea he would go straight to the piano — sometimes the guitar, but mostly the piano — and record. Recent examples. The day before yesterday, I walked six miles. I do that every couple of days. Of particular interest to long-haul fans is the inclusion of a dozen demos that have never previously seen the light of day.
People had asked if I was going to leave America if Trump became president. Nash instigated another major upheaval in his life around the time of This Path Tonight, when he left his wife of 38 years and moved from Hawaii to New York City. There he set up home with Amy Grantham, an artist and filmmaker half his age. People have seen it all before in New York. For Nash, every day counts.
Because it very well could be. What made you uproot yourself so dramatically? I basically wrote the autobiography for my grandchildren, because the eldest is only five or six years old and they have no idea who I was. But after I wrote it I began to re-evaluate my life.
MY OTHER BLOGS
When I really got down inside myself, I realised that I was not happy. That was a brave decision to make at your time of life, when the temptation might have been to just coast along… Indeed. And I needed to move on. I watch Amy create every day. We have an apartment here in New York, with a small studio that we both use. I do my music and computer work on one side of the room and Amy does her painting and collage work on the other side.
Has that reinvigorated you on an artistic level too? In a way. I was a busy boy, but what happened to me in my emotional life forced me to focus on what my life was and what I wanted it to be. Has the Over The Years… compilation been a product of that too? This country absolutely deserves better. Unfortunately with CSNY, we have to really be in some kind of love with each other. The main difficulty for me and Joel and [sound engineer] Stanley Johnston was that each of those shows was recorded in a different place, of course — different sizes and echoes, completely different buildings.
And I had to make it appear like you were sitting in the middle of the 10th row, listening to one performance. Technically, it was very tricky. Is there much more in the archive? Oh yeah. Do you know what upset him so much about your book? Not one. So I presumed that everybody was cool and I published. So has that friendship gone now? Oh, yes. Do you miss him? And the sad part is the loss of the music. This suggests that these songs are endlessly fluid… They are fluid. But I still sing them with as much passion as when I wrote them, because I owe that to my audience. My audience needs to know two things.
One — I want to be there. How did you cope with that? It was tough for me, because David and Stephen and I had just created that incredible vocal harmony, which had turned me on enough to leave my country and my entire band. He was so funny and self-assured and so… dark is not the right word, but you know what I mean. Do you still feel as strongly today? I still believe that even the smallest action can change the world. Look at the guy who was the janitor at the Watergate Hotel.

At two in the morning he was probably sat at his desk, with a nine-inch black-and-white television showing the local game and a light beer. And he has to go check the rooms. When he comes across a room that has tape on the door, does he investigate or go back to the television? Well this kid made a choice. He chose to investigate and, eventually, he brought down the President of the United States.
Do you feel the same? When I came to America and joined David and Stephen and Neil — and of course I was living with Joni — they were as serious as a heart attack about their lyrics. Did her influence open you up creatively? She was an incredible part of my life. I learned a lot from watching her write, I learned a lot from living with her. Have you seen her lately? I saw her a couple of months ago. I went down to visit her, to see exactly what was happening with her health.
She was bright, she was lucid and she was talking. You were also privy to an unusual private playback of Harvest… Ha! David and I had bought Neil two black swans when he bought that ranch and lake near San Francisco. He invited me over one day to listen to Harvest. I still have one. Have you had much contact with Neil lately? I had breakfast with him about two months ago, when he came to New York. Which he did. It was all probably worth three-quarters of a million dollars and I just handed them over to Neil.
Have you heard much of his Promise Of The Real tuff? Yes, I have. Neil likes to be there. Did CSNY need friction, somehow, to prosper? But once again, he music is the most important thing about us. And the ruth is that if we never make another note of music ogether again, at least look at what we achieved. Has that role become less crucial to you. What would it take to get you all back together?
We have to like each other. I saw Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel when they had dressing rooms half a mile from each other and only came together for the songs on stage. Never said hello or goodbye. But Rick said no, that there would only be one Beatles song on the record. Do not tell us what the fuck to do and what to sing! And once you stir Crosby up, forget it. When we booked the studio to record This Path Tonight, we went in there the night before we were due to start, to make sure everything was set up properly.
I think people learn a little something about me from it. Will there be a new album sometime soon? Shane Fontayne and I had written 20 songs, 10 of which ended up on This Path Tonight — 13 if you buy the deluxe version — so we had seven left over. Emotional chaos set to music. So will the new songs reveal a more loved-up Graham Nash? Because I feel differently. I felt very alone for the last couple of years, regarding my family. Fortunately, my girlfriend Amy is well on top of the situation and has been very supportive of what I did.
Look what he was doing in When I was still in blue jeans, that fucker was in a dress! What a sad bloody death that was. And Prince, too. Have those deaths made you more aware of your own temporality? Of course they have. And it makes you want to use every second the best way you can, because it could fucking end instantly. Is legacy something you think about much? But I managed to do something good with whatever gifts I was given. So what can you do? So be it. HE early s were not a good time for Leonard Cohen. Bill Ginn, Roscoe Beck, Leonard and I sat around a table one day having lunch, and none of us knew that the other three were on Prozac!
When we igured that out, we really got drunk. It ofended my sense of morality.
He wasforgiving himself for his appetites, and he was forgiving everyonefortheir confusingboundaries. Because he was there and he was kind and he was my friend, he was like a lighthouse for me. The people who were close to him are still grieving. Warnes, meanwhile, is making her own comeback with her irst album in 17 years, Another Time, Another Place. Beck and other Cohen alumni are still by her side. I did feel that being 70 was new and diferent, and so was what I care to talk about. There was no way I was going to ind a poet to equal Leonard. Because that was an incredible band. And we felt that Leonard had not found the right producer.
His lyrics were so layered, rich, emotional and weighty, and the music we had to learn was kind of simple. Jennifer sing these songs with Leonard night ater night set the wheels turning in a direction that she was already thinking. And I loved Leonard. Paul Ostermayer and Bill Ginn were also in that band. We learned a lot with Leonard, and it created a wonderful camaraderie. That fed into that record with Jennifer. Roscoe has the ability to hear polyrhythms and dense chords. And I can hear emotional complexity.
BECK: There were great possibilities on a musical level. He learned Jewish and Catholic and folk music as a kid. None of those are complicated. But he was an exceptionally great melody writer. He found his melodies in the. So we felt useful. We were all very close.
So we decided to go in and do our vision. And we took care of our own. BECK: When you have strong feelings that a piece of art needs to be made known, you have to do something about it. Jennifer askedany record executive who would listen for years. And a slender, tall, Caucasian blonde with glasses who had sung folk music was all they saw me as. BECK: When it inally started to happen, it happened fast. Leonard was in Montreal, but once he realised we were actually going in the studio to make a record entirely of his songs, he came down to Los Angeles to investigate.
And then he started to hear some takes, and he changed his mind. He started to come by all dressed up, slightly drunk on cognac and looking kind of spacey. And we realised that he was impressed. He began to write for the project as soon as he realised it was happening. All the consoles were hand-built by George, and the digital multitrack was state of the art.
George gave us a rate that no-one else could possibly get. And doing it there made a lot of diference. George was a mentor of this record. But I had never been recorded that well. It was a crystal-clear sound, warm and natural. There were several takes, and ater each Henry and Leonard gave approval and encouragement. And Leonard stepped in. There are several songs in his repertoire that have its gloating tone. He knew that I took issue with those positions. BECK: Jennifer delivers the song with great emotion and intensity. I was trying to remove its disrespectful power over threesomes.
I wanted somehow to dilute it and say,. Changing the gender was my tiny shakeup. That was the thought behind the arrangement. Jennifer was singing along. It was a very intimate feel. Maybe a word was said about the texture that we wanted. But maybe not even that. We had learned the song years ago with Leonard. That was just one take, as far as I recall.
Totally improvised. BECK: The strings were recorded at a later session. He was one of our secret jewels. We liked to sit around and dream of where this song might be a ilm. But he was also a huge intellect.
Public Enemy Dig Into Vaults for Lavish Reissues
Back then, the rest of us were jazz guys, primarily. Bill loved Mahler, and he studied those scores. That balance was beautiful. The voicing is what was so evocative. He would just hit the note on the chord irst beat and let it ring. There was something so perfect and beautiful about that simplicity.
He propels it just the perfect amount. Roscoe was already a close friend and Jennifer had good humour, gratitude and great talent. BECK: We were placing high demands on ourselves, and we had a limited budget. And it took about a year. But when it inally took of, the press saying nice things about it gave us all the healing that we needed. It made new fans of his music.
Leonard expressed admiration for the record. And he also said latly that it did a lot for his career. The response was very strong. We were all in awe of Jennifer as an interpretive singer. Leonard was 40 or 45 and so handsome, and I was in my prime. It was a romantic, lovely, carefree time. That changed him. And then [his former manager stealing his savings] wounded him.
He got very serious in the end. When we were younger, it was mostly laughter and giggles. BECK: He seemed very gratiied on the last tours by the response he received from the fans. He did get his due. I watched him on stage in Hollywood on the last tour, and I could tell from his body language that he was taking pleasure in it. It was real nice to see. No-one can write a line like Leonard could.
Warnes and Beck discuss recording their own. He pauses. The Melbourne band have just packed out this capacity venue, their biggest headline gig to date, with the champagne a gift from the promoters. Without much industry hype or social media buzz, the five-piece have organically netted a steadily growing and passionate fanbase. Their music is traditional in many ways — guitar-based, song-focused, evoking the literate likes of The Smiths, REM and The Go-Betweens — but intensely modern in others — they write about our world and its problems today from a microcosmic, local viewpoint, and temper their intricate music with a backbeat that suggests The Strokes or even the Ramones.
Over the top, the dual lead guitars of White and Tom Russo circle, exchanging lines and arpeggios like two separate Johnny Marrs. This sound was at the forefront of their minds when Keaney, White, Tussie and the Russos formed the band in A later band,. When you put that on a song, it all of a sudden sounds like us. It was a good buy. Obviously a lot of them were written in , a ime when the old certainties are dying.
With such a productive process, they had too many songs to release, and a few gems have — for now — fallen by the wayside. Rolling Blackouts! When we formed this band, we came at it with a more disciplined approach to songwriting — we just wanted to make hooks, interesting stories and good melodies, with a nice pulse to the songs. And all of our Italian neighbours coming out and listening to what we were doing. The focus was always on the songs, there was never any ambition beyond that. The group grew up in these areas, aside from Tussie, and all still live there now, soaking in the coffee shops, gig venues and bars.
It was punchy and uniformly strong, but Rolling Blackouts were determined to do something more interconnected for their debut album proper. Maybe the point of our band is this special thing of the five of us staying loyal to each other, with the band as the window to something else?
The whole scenario is mapped out in impeccable detail in under three minutes, even down to the name of the establishment and the music playing, diagetically, inside. Several variants of the creature have been introduced, with a variety of abilities and sizes. This book described mimics as "subterranean creatures which cannot stand the light of the sun.
