Pixies – Acoustic (Live in Newport) [2006]
mp3 | 192kpbs | 73:43 min.


“No! That’s just not right! The Pixies opening for us is like the Beatles opening for us. I won’t allow it. There’s no way we can follow the Pixies!”

– Thom Yorke

(on being informed of plans to have Pixies play before them at Coachella)

Pixies are one of the most influential music acts of modern times. And one of the greatest! No fucking doubt!!

An amazing group we’ve loved from the earliest days of the incendiary “Come on Pilgrim” EP through to the seminal,revolutionary, timeless wonder of Surfer Rosa – which shone like a raw, rupturing beacon of raging, cleansing fire amongst the music morass of the times! – on to the three fine LPs beyond.

Initially spanning the late eighties and early nineties, Black Francis and cohorts created the brand new blueprint for alternative rock that would be followed by everyone from the over-rated Nirvana to other grunge tat to Britpop …. and far beyond.

After a decade apart, the Pixies reformed, to fan euphoria, in 2004.

We here step into this tale at around 6pm on a warm Saturday in August, 2006 when Pixies took the stage – very surreally in the one time bastion of the most trenchant folkies wearing woolly jumpers – of the renowned Newport Folk Festival to perform one of their most unique sets ever!

Yap, Pixies playing Newport Folk Festival! Who’d have thunk it! If Surfer Rosa is not a world, nay a universe, away from the folk stylings of Pete Seeger et al, we don’t know what the hell is!

Recalling the huge brouhaha the Newport folkies made over Dylan’s electric performance in 1965, one can imagine the outbursts and riots that a fully-blown electric Pixies set would arouse!

So, therefore, playing a completely acoustic set, the reunited original lineup of Frank Black, Kim Deal, Joey Santiago and David Lovering give a wonderfully unique spin to 21 fan favourites!

No, not a typo. Twenty one stone cold Pixies classics mofos!!

This comes from a DVD that, as well as this wonderful show, had Bonus Features including a 21 Minute “fly on the wall” feature of the Pixies in rehearsals for their debut acoustic show as they deconstruct well-known Pixies songs from electric to acoustic versions, including “Debaser” (which didn’t make the final set list.)

You can buy this DVD here. And, of course, if any kind soul from Eagle Rock or elsewhere, wants to send this DVD to us – a collection of paupers living in a tin shack – please don’t be reluctant to knock on the e-mail door!!

No links here, thanks to internet nazis, but we saw some stuff on this on some other blog. And for the dumber of those dumb dumb nazi dum-dums, the phrase “on another blog” basically means “on another fucking blog!!

The Go-Betweens – Head Full of Steam

The Go-Betweens – Head Full Of Steam
1986, Beggars Banquet
mp3/ RS


She locked the door and the key, opened the windows for the neighbours to see her climb on my knee

Another sublime Robert Forster moment from the Go-Betweens’ seminal LP Liberty Belle And The Black Diamond Express.

Typically wonderful Forster poetry here splattered with hilarious abstract non-sequiters – the likes of “Her father works, her mother works in exports but that’s of no importance at all !

Surely the antithesis of your cliched love/ lust song!

Liberty Belle, the fourth album by the Go-Betweens, was released in 1986 in the UK on Beggars Banquet Records.

The album was recorded at Berry Street Studios in London and consisted of ten wonderful songs, the best of which being another Forster classic “Spring Rain”.

The album was produced by the Go-Betweens and Richard Preston, with the GB’s then being;

Robert Forster: Guitar & Vocals
Grant McLennan: Guitar & Vocals
Robert Vickers: Bass
Lindy Morrison: Drums

Tracey Thorn (Everything But the Girl) provides the backing vocals on this track.


Can I come to your place and can I wash your hair?

We were delighted to find the vid posted on Youtube as, amazingly, we’d never ever seen it!

Then later we were almost sad we found it! Almost!

Now we know why we’d never seen this before. Or nobody had!

Robert’s at his most, let’s say, outré here! No, we don’t mean he looks like he’s just back from the gay Mardi Gras! Well, not necessarily!

We won’t speak of the Grant wig and outfit either!

We’ll give them the benefit of the doubt and assume that copious drugs were being taken during the concept phase and also before and during the shoot, and that the plan was to take the piss out of all those OTT New Romantic bands popular at the time.

Head Full of Steam – Robert Forster

I’d never met her type she ignored me and that’s alright
Never to be friends or my body lie on her floor
Her father works
Her mother works in exports
But that’s of no importance at all
I don’t mind
I don’t mind

To chase her
A fools dream
I’m 104 degrees
With a Head Full of Steam
All waiting’s up
I’m on that team
That says go forward
With a Head Full of Steam

She plays hard to get along with
But she might drop by
She never had a nickname
But then nor have I
I don’t mind
I don’t mind
To chase her
A fools dream
I’m 104 degrees
With a Head Full of Steam

All waiting’s up
I’m on that team
That says go forward
With a Head Full of Steam

Steam may rise
Steam
may deck
Can I come to your place
and can I wash your hair?


I’d never met her type
She locked the door and the key
Opened the windows for the neighbours to see
Her climb on my knee
To chase her
A fools dream
I’m 104 degrees
With a Head Full of Steam

All waitings up
I’m on that team
That says go forward
With a Head Full of Steam
Go Forward
Go forward now
Go forward
Go forward now

The Ronettes – "Be My Baby"

We’ll make ’em turn their heads, every place we go

“The things Phil was doing were crazy and exhausting …. but that’s not the sign of a nut. That’s genius.”

– Larry Levine (Phil Spector’s engineer)

“Be My Baby” is a seminal 1963 single written by Phil Spector, Jeff Barry, and Ellie Greenwich, performed by the Ronettes and produced by Phil Spector.

It’s a classic of the pop music genre and the favourite song of no less a genius than pop maestro Brian Wilson! A song that has been influential on generations of great musicians, from the Beatles and the Beach Boys through to the present day.

The Ronettes were a girl group of the 1960s from New York City, best known for their work with producer Phil Spector. They consisted of lead singer Veronica Bennett (a.k.a. Ronnie Spector), her sister Estelle Bennett, and their cousin Nedra Talley.

The Ronettes were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2004.

In 1963 the girls came to the attention of producer Phil Spector, who was looking for a new girl group to assume The Crystals’ mantle. He was taken with Ronnie’s voice and style, and signed The Ronettes to his Philles label.

As Spector’s new protégées, they were given a strong image as “bad girls”, with beehive hairdos, heavy eyeliner, and tight skirts.

Their first Philles single was the sublime “Be My Baby”.

When “Be My Baby” was released as a single, the song became a hit, reaching #2 on the U.S. Billboard Pop Singles Chart and #4 in the UK Record Retailer chart.

The song as sung by The Ronettes is #22 on Rolling Stone’s list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

In 1999 it was inducted in the Grammy Hall of Fame, and in 2006, the Library of Congress honored their version by adding it to the United States National Recording Registry.

Often cited as the ultimate embodiment of Spector’s concept of the Wall of Sound, “Be My Baby” is one of the best-known and most enduring songs of its era, and arguably one of the most influential pop songs of all time.

Spector rehearsed this song with Ronnie Bennett (the only Ronette to sing on it) for weeks , but that didn’t stop him from doing forty-two takes before he was satisfied. Aided by a full orchestra, he created a lush, echo-laden sound that was the Rosetta stone for studio pioneers such as the Beatles and Brian Wilson.

Critic Jason Ankeny writes, “No less an authority than Brian Wilson has declared ‘Be My Baby’ the greatest pop record ever made — no arguments here.”

In her autobiography, lead vocalist Ronnie Spector relates that she was on tour with Joey Dee and the Starlighters when “Be My Baby” was introduced by Dick Clark on American Bandstand as the “Record of the Century.”

The song has been covered countless times by artists including Andy Kim (a 1970 chart hit produced by Jeff Barry), John Lennon, The Lightning Seeds, the Bay City Rollers, the Glitzzi Girls, The Baby Skins, Blue Öyster Cult, We Are Scientists, Psyched Up Janis, Maroon 5. Glasvegas, Ivy, Linda Ronstadt, Whigfield, Ultima Thule, Jason Donovan and Travis.

Brian Wilson considers his song “Don’t Worry Baby” (performed by The Beach Boys) to be the ‘male answer’ to this song.

In 1986, Eddie Money’s “Take Me Home Tonight” included the lyrics “Just like Ronnie sang” and Ronnie Spector herself singing part of the chorus to “Be My Baby”. Mutya Buena and Amy Winehouse recently recorded a derivative song “B Boy Baby” based around the chorus for Mutya’s debut album Real Girl.

The song features a famous drum intro by Hal Blaine which has been replicated on hundreds of subsequent songs from The Beatles and The Beach Boys in 1964 to Deerhunter in 2008!

The song has appeared in numerous movies and TV shows, best of all in the majestic Martin Scorsese film Mean Streets, which features a montage of street scenes and group photographs set against the Ronettes’ track.




The night we met I knew I needed you so
And if I had the chance I’d never let you go
So won’t you say you love me
I’ll make you so proud of me
We’ll make ’em turn their heads
Every place we go
So won’t you please

(Be my be my baby) Be my little baby
(I want it only say) Say you’ll be my darling
(Be my be my baby) Be my baby now
(I want it only say) Ooh, ohh, ohh, oh

I’ll make you happy, baby
Just wait and see
For every kiss you give me
I’ll give you three
Oh, since the day I saw you
I have been waiting for you
You know I will adore you
Till eternity
So won’t you please

(Be my be my baby) Be my little baby
(I want it only say) Say you’ll be my darling
(Be my be my baby) Be my baby now
(I want it only say) Ooh, ohh, ohh, ohh, oh

So come on and please
(Be my be my baby) Be my little baby
(I want it only say) Say you’ll be my darling
(Be my be my baby) Be my baby now
(I want it only say) Ooh, ohh, ohh, oh

(Be my be my baby) Be my little baby
(I want it only say) Ooh-oh-oh-oh, ooh-oh-oh-oh
(Be my be my baby) Oh-oh-oh, oohh…
(I want it only say) Oh, oh, oh, oh, oooohh…

The Smiths – How Soon Is Now

When you say it’s gonna happen “now”, well when exactly do you mean?

Starting with a seminal and sublime Johnny riff laid upon by Morrisey’s unique vocals and distinctively fucked up powerful poetic lyrics, this is a perfect song! A song you urgently want to immediately hear again once it’s over! And then hear again once that’s over!

Although, shockingly, not the biggest hit in the Universe at the time of its original release, like the song’s great line “when you say it’s gonna happen “now”, well when exactly do you mean?”, the track has slowly but surely, down the years, garnered the oceans of universal critical recognition it all so properly deserves, and now sits proudly amongst the pantheon of modern songwriting!

A truly classic piece of modern songwriting, “How Soon Is Now?” represents the peerless Smiths at their prime.

A crucially important, timeless, incendiary track!

We get the magnificent Morrissey lyrics, ostensibly simple yet extremely powerful – lyrics that really strike you in the gut; lyrics not only left of field, but from another time and place, a cross between Milton, some obscure Victorian writers, Oscar Wilde, Hubert Selby Jr, Kitchen sink drama, Patti Smith, Harold Pinter and a million other eclectic influences!

And all this majesty above a beautifully original, scintillating, wildly-oscillating Johnny Marr guitar riff!

How often do you hear words like “seminal” in a song? How often do you hear a magic unforgettable riff like this?

Nowhere but here, motherfuckers!

This song is perfection itself!!

I am the son
and the heir
of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
I am the son and heir
of nothing in particular

You shut your mouth
how can you say
I go about things the wrong way
I am human and I need to be loved
just like everybody else does

I am the son
and the heir
of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
I am the son and the heir
of nothing in particular

You shut your mouth
how can you say
I go about things the wrong way
I am human and I need to be loved
just like everybody else does

There’s a club if you’d like to go
you could meet somebody who really loves you
so you go, and you stand on your own
and you leave on your own
and you go home, and you cry
and you want to die

When you say it’s gonna happen “now”
well, when exactly do you mean?
see I’ve already waited too long
and all my hope is gone

You shut your mouth
how can you say
I go about things the wrong way
I am human and I need to be loved
just like everybody else does

“How Soon Is Now?”was credited to Morrissey and Johnny Marr and first released by The Smiths back in 1984.

Sire Records chief Seymour Stein – kind of damning it with faint praise! – called the song “the ‘Stairway to Heaven’ of the Eighties”, while co-writer Johnny Marr more sensibly described it as “possibly our most enduring record. It’s most people’s favourite, I think.

Originally a B-side with “Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want” on the 12″ single version of “William, It Was Really Nothing” in 1984, the song was subsequently featured on the compilation album Hatful of Hollow and on certain (U.S., Australian and Warner UK) editions of Meat Is Murder.

It was subsequently belatedly released as an A-side in the United Kingdom in 1985, reaching #24 on the singles chart.

Although a club favourite, “How Soon Is Now?” did not chart as well as writers Morrissey and Marr had expected. Most commentators put this down to the fact that the song had been out on vinyl in a number of forms before being released as a single in its own right.

The original track ran for nearly 7 minutes; however, the 7″ single edit cut the length down to under four minutes. The complete version is generally used on compilations.

The song contains only one verse which is repeated twice, plus a chorus and a bridge.

The subject is not one normally touched upon in realm of popular music. It’s an existential tale of a desparate individual who cannot find a way to break free of his crippling shyness – a tale with strong resonance to all sensitive intelligent souls across the world! (no, not one, thankfully, for the dumb Jocks!)

Two couplets from the song have since found their way into mass pop culture. Those being the opening to the verse: “I am the son, and the heir, of a shyness that is criminally vulgar / I am the son and heir, of nothing in particular“, and the chorus: “I am human and I need to be loved / Just like everybody else does“.

The opening was actually adapted from a line in George Eliot‘s novel Middlemarch: “To be born the son of a Middlemarch manufacturer, and inevitable heir to nothing in particular”.

While the track is cited as having changed the dumb U.S. media’s incorrect perception of the band, the lyrics have also been taken as specifically relating to contemporary Manchester club culture.

In any event the lyrics represent Mozza at his powerful poetic best, totally out of step with any other lyricist from this or indeed any other period!

The tune is built around an impactful guitar chord that rapidly oscillates in volume. As to how this amazingly distinctive resonant sound was achieved, Johny Marr gave the following account to Guitar Player magazine in 1990:

The vibrato sound is fucking incredible, and it took a long time. I put down the rhythm track on an Epiphone Casino through a Fender Twin Reverb without vibrato. Then we played the track back through four old Twins, one on each side. We had to keep all the amps vibrating in time to the track and each other, so we had to keep stopping and starting the track, recording it in 10-second bursts …..

We did it in three passes through a harmonizer, set to some weird interval, like a sixth. There was a different harmonization for each pass. For the line in harmonics, I retuned the guitar so that I could play it all at the 12th fret with natural harmonics. It’s doubled several times.

The song was originally included as a bonus track on the 12″ single release of The Smiths’ “William, It Was Really Nothing“, released in the United Kingdom on 24 August 1984.

According to John Porter: “I thought ‘This is it!’…but I don’t think the record company liked it…They totally threw it away, wasted it”. The track was subsequently included on The Smiths’ compilation album Hatful of Hollow, released on 12 November 1984.

The song was released on Sire Records in the United States, backed with “Girl Afraid”, in November 1984. It was expected to sell well and, for the first time, a video was made to promote a Smiths track. However, the song failed to chart.

Rough Trade boss Geoff Travis blamed poor promotion: “I can’t understand why ‘How Soon Is Now?” wasn’t a top 10 single, but perhaps I’m being naive. If only their singles had been played on the radio”.

Morrissey too expressed his disappointment in an interview with Creem magazine: “It’s hard to believe that ‘How Soon Is Now?’ was not a hit. I thought that was the one...”.

“How Soon Is Now?” was released as an A-side in the United Kingdom later, on January 28, 1985. The 7″ featured an edited version of the track, and the B-side was “Well I Wonder“, from the about-to-be-released Meat Is Murder album. The 12″ single also included a great new instrumental track, “Oscillate Wildly“.

In spite of being considered, by this time, something of a classic, “How Soon Is Now?” only managed to rise to #24 in the U.K. singles chart. The reality though, as stated in an interview by John Porter was that “Everybody knew the Smiths’ fans already had it”!

Following the acquisition of the Rough Trade catalogue by Warner Bros. Records, “How Soon Is Now?” was issued again as a single in the United Kingdom in September 1992.

A 7″ single and cassette featured the edited version, backed with a live version of “Handsome Devil“, recorded at The Haçienda on 4 February 1983 (this had originally been the B-side to The Smiths’ first single “Hand in Glove”).

Two CD singles featured tracks from The Smiths’ back-cataolgue which were, following the demise of Rough Trade, unavailable in the United Kingdom at that time. The re-issue reached #16 in the U.K. singles chart.


Reviews of this great track upon initial release were generally excellent, such as this one from the now defunct Melody Maker – a top weekly Brit music mag back then;

“Morrissey and co have once again delved into their Sixties treasure-trove, and produced a visceral power capable of blowing the dust off Eighties inertia. The majestic ease of Morrissey’s melancholic vocals are tinted with vitriol, as they move through vistas of misery with plaintive spirals around the pulse of Johnny Marr’s vibrato guitar. The string’s muted strains conjure wistful signs that bridge the schism between crass sentimentality and callous detachment. Each repeated phrase intensifies the hypnotic waves, with results that outflank anything since ‘This Charming Man’. Catharsis has rarely been tinged with so much regret, and shared with so much crystalline purity.”

– Melody Maker, 2 February 1985

The Smiths were always known for a sublime artwork aesthetic. This track continued in that vein.

The single’s cover art was a still from the film Dunkirk (1958) featuring British actor Sean Barrett, praying but looking sufficiently as though he was holding his crotch to have the sleeve banned in the censorial United States, where a photograph of the band backstage at the 1984 Glastonbury Festival was used instead!!

According to Morrissey: “‘How Soon Is Now?’ was released in an abhorrent sleeve — and the time and the dedication that we put into the sleeves and artwork, it was tearful when we finally saw the record…”

A music video was made – see end of this post – using the 7″ edit of the song which intercut clips of the band playing live (including a shot of Johnny Marr showing Morrissey how to play the guitar), an industrial part of Manchester, and a girl dancing.

Whilst unauthorised and heavily criticised by the band, the video has been credited with helping make the song their most famous in the United States, along with helping them attain heavy exposure on college radio.

Morrissey wasn’t a fan of the vid though and said:

“We saw the video and we said to Sire, ‘You can’t possibly release this… this degrading video.’ And they said, ‘Well, maybe you shouldn’t really be on our label.’ It was quite disastrous”!

“How Soon Is Now?” was always considered a “major problem” to play in concert, and live versions are rare.

One version was recorded during the concert for The Smiths’ live album Rank, but was not used. Instead, a raw version of this song (and entire concert) appeared on the bootleg A Bad Boy from a Good Family.

However, one live version was used to open Morrissey’s solo album Live at Earl’s Court.

Furthermore, the track has also been played on almost all of Morrissey’s tours since 2004.

“How Soon Is Now?” has been since been covered by various artists of very very varying quality!!

The guitar track was sampled, with the Smiths’ approval, in 1990 by indie-dance band Soho on their UK Top 10 single “Hippychick”.


The song was covered by Psychedelic Furs spin-off band Love Spit Love.

Their version was used on the soundtrack to the film The Craft – a dumb tale about a group of curvy nubile teen witches!

It was also later used as the theme tune to the witchcraft-themed television show Charmed, and has since, rather surreally, become associated with the series. It appears on Charmed: The Soundtrack and as a UK bonus track on its follow-up album, Charmed: The Book of Shadows.

Mad Russian lesbian-chic pop duo t.A.T.u.‘s cover of the song is featured on the album 200 km/h in the Wrong Lane (2002). Johnny Marr properly found their version “just silly”, but Morrissey, probably tongue in cheek, considered it “magnificent”!

t.A.T.u.’s version of “How Soon Is Now” is the opening track on the album Tribute to The Smiths, a compilation of Smiths covers.

Other artists to have covered the song include UK indie band Hundred Reasons, U.S. post-hardcore band Quicksand (bonus track on their Slip album) in 1993, U.S. post-grunge band Everclear, US punk band Meatmen (on the compilation “The World Still Won’t Listen”), UK band Paradise Lost (on the limited edition Say Just Words EP), and industrial rockers Snake River Conspiracy.

The song has, down they years, gone on to garner many many well deserved critical accolades;

In 2004, Rolling Stone magazine rated the song #486 in its list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. We think it should really really be far higher though! For example, Macca’s mawkish “Let it Be” was in their top twenty, for f*ck sake!!

In March 2005, Q magazine placed it at #28 in its list of the 100 Greatest Guitar Tracks.

In 2006, “How Soon Is Now?” was voted runner up in VH1’s “Top Lyrics” poll for the lyrics, “So you go and you stand on your own, and you leave on your own, and you go home, and you cry, and you want to die” and marginally missed out on top spot to U2’s “One”. None of those judges had heard of Bob Dylan or Leonard Cohen though!!

In May 2007, NME magazine placed “How Soon Is Now?” at # 7 in its list of the 50 Greatest Indie Anthems Ever.

The Go-Betweens – 16 Lovers Lane Acoustic Demos

A rare collection from our most favourite group of all, the mighty Go-Betweens.

This was given away back in May 1996 with the French music mag Les Inrockuptibles, who properly described the GBs as “the most under-estimated band in the history of rock”!

These are the acoustic demos to the GB’s most ‘accessible’, and also probably their best (but all their LPs are excellent!) album. Also included are a few unreleased tracks and earlier numbers.

All thanks to the great stripedsunlight who says;

A gem and maybe one of the rarest official items from the band. This freebie was given away with the issue 58 of the French magazine Les Inrockuptibles.

This CD is a 10 out of 10, studio recorded, acoustic demos, of possibly their best album, a must for any fan.

Here she be

When Genius Collides – Leonard Cohen’s majestic "Hallelujah" and Bob Dylan


This is a song about the broken.

– L.Cohen


I wanted to push the Hallelujah deep into the secular world, into the ordinary world.

– L.Cohen

A sublime moment this! Two of the giants of modern culture collide when his Bobness performs a fine cover of Leonard Cohen’s sublime “Hallelujah“, one of the finest songs of recent times! See vid below at the end of this post.

Lenny and Dylan are probably the greatest two artists of the modern music era, in terms of the quality of their work and their artistic longevity. A propos nothing, both, too, are coincidentally, yet interestingly, Jewish.

The work of these two masters will live on forever.

Lenny talks in a French interview in 85 about meeting Bob in Paris and introducing him to the song;

“It’s a rather joyous song . I like very much the last verse. I remember singin’ it to Bob Dylan after his last concert in Paris. The morning after, I was having coffee with him and we traded lyrics. Dylan especially liked this last verse “And even though it all went wrong , I stand before the Lord of song With nothing on my lips but Hallelujah”

– Leonard Cohen (from an interview in Paroles et Musiques, 1985)

We don’t know any details about where and when this Dylan boot comes from though. We think it could be from Bob’s 1988 tour.

by endraum

“Hallelujah” is an expertly crafted, beautiful and complex song where Cohen’s sculpted poetry juxtaposes secular and religious desire and ecstasy.

The sublime lyric sits astride a sumptuous melody regarding which, Rufus Wainwright – who often includes the song in his live repertoire and who did a decent version of the song on the Leonard Cohen I’m Your Man movie from 2006 – has commented that;

“It’s an easy song to sing. The music never pummels the words. The melody is almost liturgical and conjures up religious feelings. It’s purifying.”

Interestingly regarding the melody, in the section where the lyrics go “the fourth, the fifth, the minor fall, the major lift“, the chords move as described in the lyrics as follows: F (“the fourth”), G (“the fifth”), Am (“the minor fall”), F (“the major lift”).

“Hallelujah” was originally written and composed over the course of a year, and is said to have been a frustrating and difficult process for Lenny.

Cohen says he wrote at least eighty verses, discarding most of them in the process of crafting the song. Cohen is quoted as saying:

“ I filled two notebooks and I remember being in the Royalton Hotel, on the carpet in my underwear, banging my head on the floor and saying, ‘I can’t finish this song.’ ”

Cohen first recorded the song at Quadrasonic Sound, New York in June 1984, working with producer John Lissauer. The next recording of this song by Leonard Cohen was captured live in Austin, Texas on October 31, 1988 with production by Leanne Ungar and Bob Metzger.

The original incarnation of Hallelujah was as track 5 on Lenny’s Various Positions LP in 1984, which clocked in at 4:34. Here the lyric is much less secular than what it would later become.

The original recording is noted for containing a substantial amount of biblical references in the lyrics, alluding to David’s harp-playing used to soothe King Saul (I Sam 16:23), and his later affair with Bathsheba after watching her bathe from his roof (2 Sam 11:2).

The line “she broke your throne and she cut your hair” is obviously a reference to the source of Samson’s strength from the Book of Judges chapter 16 and to how his hair was cut by Delilah. The third verse refers to “the name” (Tetragrammaton).

An extended and significantly different version of “Hallelujah” was recorded for the Cohen Live LP in 1994, the performance being from an Austin gig in October 1988. This clocked in at a substantially longer 6:54.

The lyrics are very different in this version and in fact only the final verse from the original recording is retained.

In this version, the lyrics have become far more sexual and ambiguous, while the song’s structure has also been slightly reworked.

On stage in Antwerp in April 1988, Cohen describes this version as the the “secular” Hallelujah and speaks about the background to the song’s metamorphosis;

You know, I wrote this song …. it seems like yesterday but I guess it was five or six years ago and it had a chorus called Hallelujah. And it was a song that had references to the Bible in it, although these references became more and more remote as the song went from beginning to the end. And finally I understood that it was not necessary to refer to the Bible anymore.

And I rewrote this song; this is the “secular” Hallelujah.

In the years after his original studio album version, live performances by Cohen were almost invariably of the second version of the song.

Between Lenny’s two released versions of “Hallelujah”, former Velvet, John Cale recorded a very notable cover version, which appeared on the great 1991 Leonard Cohen tribute album I’m Your Fan and, again, on Cale’s beautiful 1992 live album Fragments of a Rainy Season.

See a great “Hallelujah” performance from John Cale below from BBC TV back in ’92.

Cale’s version featured vocals with simple piano accompaniment. Importantly the lyrics are quite different from those on Lenny’s Various Positions. In a 2001 interview with The Observer, John Cale said:

After I saw [Cohen] perform at the Beacon I asked if I could have the lyrics to “Hallelujah”. When I got home one night there were fax paper rolls everywhere because Leonard had insisted on supplying all 15 verses.”

John says he “went through and just picked out the cheeky verses”!

John Cale’s version was far closer to the secular version of “Hallelujah” Lenny had been performing on his tours, the version Cale had heard him perform.

John Cale’s fine version would later feature in the 1996 film, Basquiat, as well as, rather surreally, in the 2001 animated film, Shrek. Strangely, for the latter movie, Rufus Wainwright covered the song as well, and his version appears on the Shrek soundtrack album rather than Cale’s – whose version is far better in our view!

Single released from the “I’m Your Fan” tribute album

Cale’s version would prove very influential since Lenny would not for some time release his updated version of of “Hallelujah”.

Although Cale’s version did not reach a mass audience, it became well known among music cognoscenti. Jeff Buckley would, soon after, begin performing “Hallelujah” at his live shows, in a version heavily influenced by Cale’s. We were lucky enough to catch a couple of his shows from around this time in small clubs such as Whelan’s in Dublin

Buckley later recorded “Hallelujah” for his only completed studio album, 1994 ‘s Grace in a version that would reach a much wider audience than the original Cohen song or Cale’s cover, particularly so after Jeff’s horribly early demise in 1997.

Buckley’s version relied quite heavily on studio technology. Not wholly satisfied with any one take, Buckley recorded the song more than twenty times. Studio engineer Andy Wallace then took three of these recordings to create a single track. The result was a quite commercial sounding version which was more accessible to the music masses than Lenny’s.

Buckley’s is the version that inspired a thousand insipid cover versions by muzak merchants the likes of Bon Jovi (oh, the horror!) et al!! In fact there are countless morons out there who believe Buckley actually wrote the song!

Bizarrely, in March, 2008, Buckley’s version of “Hallelujah”, went to No. 1 on the iTunes chart, selling 178,000 downloads for the week, after being performed by some joker named Jason Castro on the seventh season of the vile television series American Idol. The song debuted at #1 that week on Billboard’s Hot Digital Songs chart, giving Buckley his first #1 on any Billboard chart!

As alluded to above, a slew of other cover versions of “Hallelujah” have been attempted, very variable in quality, to say the least, and most not very good!

Many such cover artists mix lyrics from both Lenny versions, and occasionally make direct lyric changes such as Rufus Wainwright singing “holy dark” and Allison Crowe singing “Holy Ghost” rather than “holy dove”.

“Hallelujah” is a very difficult song to cover well. Bob Dylan, typically, does a great job in the boot recording here though.

It’s up there with John Cale’s fine version.

No, we’re not big fans of the rather saccharine Jeff Buckley version. Nor, surprisingly, the version that cnut did on America Idol this year!!

There’s a nice piece about this majestic song on pagesperso-orange, with some great quotes from Lenny – in interviews or on stage – regarding the song, and also some changed lyrics live, as follows:

Warsaw 22/03/1985

Thank you very much friends. You know, since I’ve been here, many people have asked me what I have thought just about everything there is in this veil of tears. I don’t know the answers to anything. I just come here to sing you these songs that have been inspired by something that I hope is deeper and bigger than myself. I have nothing to say about the way that Poland is governed. I have nothing to say about the resistance to the government. The relationship between a people and its government is an intimate thing. It is not for a stranger to comment. I know that there is an eye that watches all of us. There is a judgment that weighs everything we do. And before this great force which is greater than any government, I stand in awe and I kneel in respect. And it is to this great judgment, that I dedicate this next song: “Hallelujah”.

Interview (magazine “Guitare et Claviers” 1985)

Hallelujah is a Hebrew word which means “Glory to the Lord.” The song explains that many kinds of Hallelujahs do exist. I say : “All the perfect and broken Hallelujahs have an equal value.” It’s, as I say, a desire to affirm my faith in life, not in some formal religious way but with enthusiasm, with emotion.

Interview (Magazine “Paroles et Musiques” 1985)

Here there is an ironic and warm “feeling.” I wanted to get into this tradition of the composers who said “Hallelujah,” but with no precisely religious point of view. And then I realize there is a “Hallelujah” more general that we speak to the world, to life… It’s a rather joyous song. I like very much the last verse. I remember singin’ it to Bob Dylan after his last concert in Paris. The morning after, I was having coffee with him and we traded lyrics. Dylan especially liked this last verse, “And even though it all went wrong, I stand before the Lord of song with nothing on my lips but Hallelujah.”

About the second verse, “Your faith was strong but you needed proof”:

According to the Judaic tradition, David asked for ordeal. But the Rabbies said we should be reluctant to do so because ordeal there will sure be!

“David playing psalterion”, Reichenau Movement, Tenth century

Interview (Magazine “Actuel” January 1985)

LC – I intended to say “Hallelujah”. There is a religious Hallelujah, but there are many other ones. When one looks at the world and his proper life, there’s only one thing to say, it’s Hallelujah. That’s the way it is….
Mag – It means “Thank You” ?

LC – The literal translation is “Pray God”. It’s not exactly some gratitude but the affirmation there is a will that we can’t control. What can we do in front of it ?

Mag – A good will or a bad one ?

LC – An impenetrable one.

Mag – Mysterious ?

LC – Saying “Mysterious” is again making a description. This will is obvious from time to time, hidden at other times

Montreux 09/07/1985

This is a song about the broken.

München 12/04/1988

Verse Variation

Forgive me Lord if you’re up there above, but all I ever learned from love …

Antwerp 17/04/1988

You know, I wrote this song a couple of … it seems like yesterday but I guess it was five or six years ago and it had a chorus called Hallelujah. And it was a song that had references to the Bible in it, although these references became more and more remote as the song went from beginning to the end. And finally I understood that it was not necessary to refer to the Bible anymore.

And I rewrote this song; this is the “secular” Hallelujah.

Nürnberg 10/05/1988 and Roskilde July 2, 1988

Modified verses

But it’s not a cry that you hear tonight And it’s not some gleeful laughter from somebody who says he has seen the light …

alternate version (Roskilde July 2nd, 1988)

It’s not some gleeful christian who has seen the light, it’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah …

Interview, Reijkavik, Iceland June 1988

Yeah another song came on top of that. So I’d already recorded that one. And I wanted to push the Hallelujah deep into the secular world, into the ordinary world. The Hallelujah, the David’s Hallelujah was still a religious song. So I wanted to indicate that Hallelujah can come out of things that have nothing to do with religion.

Gothenburg 02/05/93

In solemn testimony of that unbroken faith, which binds a generation one to another, I hereby bestow upon you the ancient priestly benediction “May the Lord bless you and keep you, May the Lord shine His Light upon you, May the Lord be gracious unto you, and grant you the blessings of Peace”.

Paris 13/05/93

by hakanphotography

Leonard Cohen – Hallelujah

Now I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you
To a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

You say I took the name in vain
I don’t even know the name
But if I did, well really, what’s it to you?
There’s a blaze of light
In every word
It doesn’t matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

I did my best, it wasn’t much
I couldn’t feel, so I tried to touch
I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come to fool you
And even though
It all went wrong
I’ll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah


(Original version from the Various Positions LP)


painting by L Cohen

Leonard Cohen – Hallelujah


Baby, I’ve been here before.
I know this room, I’ve walked this floor.
I used to live alone before I knew you.

Yeah I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch,
But listen, love is not some kind of victory march,
No it’s a cold and it’s a very broken Hallelujah.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, (Hallelujah…)

There was a time you let me know
What’s really going on below,
Ah but now you never show it to me, do you?

Yeah but I remember, yeah when I moved in you,
And the holy dove, she was moving too,
Yes every single breath that we drew was Hallelujah.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah.

Maybe there’s a God above,
As for me, all I’ve ever seemed to learn from love
Is how to shoot at someone who outdrew you.

Yeah but it’s not a complaint that you hear tonight,
It’s not the laughter of someone who claims to have seen the light
No it’s a cold and it’s a very lonely Hallelujah.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah.

I did my best, it wasn’t much.
I couldn’t feel, so I learned to touch.
I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come all this way to fool you.

Yeah even tough it all went wrong
I’ll stand right here before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my lips but Hallelujah.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah.

Lou Reed & John Cale – Waiting for the Man – Paris 1972

Feel sick and dirty, more dead than alive, I’m waiting for my man

An amazing video this!

The great John Cale performs with Lou Reed at Bataclan in Paris in 1972!

After Cale was essentially kicked out of the Velvet underground in 1969 by Reed, not long after their wonderful second LP “White Light White Heat”, I’d thought that Cale in ’72 would be more likely to punch Reed’s lights out than perform with him!

Of course, they would work together again much later on the “Songs for Drella” LP and perform in the Velvets reunion tour.

Here, they perform a slowed down re-interpretation of the amazing track Waiting for the Man from the Velvet’s seminal 1967 debut, The Velvet Underground & Nico, better known as the “Banana” album!

Am I crazy or is Lou actually happy and smiling here??!

https://i2.wp.com/upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/e/e4/Velvet_underground_album_cover_2.png https://i1.wp.com/upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/0/0c/Velvet_Underground_and_Nico.jpg/200px-Velvet_Underground_and_Nico.jpg

I’m waiting for my man
Twenty-six dollars in my hand
Up to Lexington, 125
Feel sick and dirty, more dead than alive
I’m waiting for my man

Hey, white boy, what you doin’ uptown?
Hey, white boy, you chasin’ our women around?
Oh pardon me sir, it’s the furthest from my mind
I’m just lookin’ for a dear, dear friend of mine
I’m waiting for my man

Here he comes, he’s all dressed in black
PR shoes and a big straw hat
He’s never early, he’s always late
First thing you learn is you always gotta wait
I’m waiting for my man

Up to a Brownstone, up three flights of stairs
Everybody’s pinned you, but nobody cares
He’s got the works, gives you sweet taste
Ah then you gotta split because you got no time to waste
I’m waiting for my man

Baby don’t you holler, darlin’ don’t you bawl and shout
I’m feeling good, you know I’m gonna work it on out
I’m feeling good, I’m feeling oh so fine
Until tomorrow, but that’s just some other time
I’m waiting for my man

The Smiths – Troy Tate Sessions (1983)

The Smiths Troy Tate Sessions (1983)

The legendary original unreleased recording of tracks for the seminal 1984 debut album from the mighty Smiths!!

These are the original studio recordings from the summer of 1983 for The Smiths” debut LP with producer Troy Tate and are usually referred to as the Troy Tate outtakes or sessions, or incorrectly as the Troy Tate demos.

Unsatisfied with his work as a producer, the Smiths re-recorded their debut with producer John Porter and this is what ended up being released.

Unfinished versions (at varying degree) of the shelved Tate recordings are in circulation on various bootlegs.

There are three Troy Tate Sessions “sets;

  • TATE 1 (core tracks),
  • TATE 2 (alternative mixes)
  • a third set that contains 2 demos: Jeane and What Difference does it make?

https://i0.wp.com/lorimoz.googlepages.com/Smiths.JPG/Smiths-large.jpg

There are two circulated Troy Tate versions of most songs he worked on, but for a few titles there are either only one or three versions out there. The first versions to have leaked (let’s call the set TATE1) feature seemingly rougher outtakes while the versions in a later set (TATE2) seem to be more polished, possibly considered finished, and include or exclude different vocals/sounds/elements. The Troy Tate recordings of “Jeane” and “Pretty Girls Make Graves” were considered good enough to see an official release so the versions of those two titles on most bootlegs are the studio ones, lifted from vinyl. For more information of the availability of the official sources for the latter two songs, click on the titles above in bold.

TATE 1 set

The first Troy Tate sessions bootlegs appeared on the market in the early 1990s. They featured what appears to be unfinished mixes. The pitch (speed) on these is often slower than it should be. Some bootleg feature speed-corrected versions. Timings given here for each title are respectively those of the uncorrected speeds followed by the corrected ones.

– Reel Around The Fountain (version 1; 6:13/6:02)
– You’ve Got Everything Now (version 1; 4:28/4:15)
– Miserable Lie (version 1; 4:52/4:39)
– These Things Take Time (only version; 2:48/2:40)
– Wonderful Woman (version 1; 3:29/3:19)
– Handsome Devil (version 1; 3:00/2:50)
– Hand In Glove (version 1; 3:30/3:20)
– What Difference Does It Make? (version 1; 4:13/4:01)
– I Don’t Owe You Anything (version 1; 4:37/4:24)
– Suffer Little Children (version 1; 5:54/5:39)
– Pretty Girls Make Graves (officially released version 3:35)
– Jeane (officially released version 3:03)

TATE 2 set (first half)

In the mid-1990s the following Troy Tate outtakes were released on the “Reel Around The Fountain” and “Wonderful Woman” manufactured bootlegs. They have since been lifted and included on other fan-made compilations. They are sometimes referred to as alternate or alternative versions. Please note that two titles were not included in the first set. The other four are significantly different to their counterparts in the first set.

– Accept Yourself (only version 4:03)
– The Hand That Rocks The Cradle (only version 5:15)
– Miserable Lie (version 2; 4:37)
– Reel Around The Fountain (version 2; 5:55)
– What Difference Does It Make? (version 2; 3:19)
– Wonderful Woman (version 2; 3:18)

TATE 2 set (rest)

The complete set from which the above six were lifted has since leaked onto the internet, and is gradually finding its way onto fanmade bootlegs. Again they are sometimes referred to as alternate or alternative versions. A set circulated on the internet and labeled as ‘remixed’ is actually this one, with an inferior sound. So besides the above 6, this set also includes the following songs/versions, different to any one above (except for the two officially released ones of course).

– You’ve Got Everything Now (version 2; 4:29)
– Handsome Devil (version 2; 2:52)
– Hand In Glove (version 2; 3:24)
– I Don’t Owe You Anything (version 2; 4:30)
– Suffer Little Children (version 2; 4:54)
– Pretty Girls Make Graves (officially released version 3:35)
– Jeane (officially released version 3:03)

TATE3 set

A different set leaked on the internet was labeled “Rough Trade Demos”. This actually includes inferior sounding versions of many songs in the TATE2 set above, but the two songs listed below are different. They sound like pre-mixed versions of the ones above. Whether or not Troy Tate had anything to do with these is unknown as this point, but because they are circulated among Troy Tate sessions, they are mentioned here.

– What Difference Does It Make? (version 3 aka demo; 3:56)
– Jeane (demo 2:46)

In short, the completist will have more luck finding the best versions of all the above on the internet. Manufactured bootleg cds either have slow versions of the TATE1 set, or 2nd or 3rd generation fan-‘remastered’ versions of all sets. At this point in time great lossless versions of all the above is available on torrent sites. Still, in case one wants to know what is found on various titles, here is a rundown.

https://i1.wp.com/lorimoz.googlepages.com/bootlegs.JPG/bootlegs-large.jpg

Differences between versions

Differences between the various circulated Troy Tate outtakes of each title are given below. These descriptions are not exhaustive, only the most obvious differences are mentioned.

“Accept Yourself”

Only version, TATE2 set – 4:03

This song was not part of the TATE1 set, or if it was, it was never released with the rest.

Ironically Simon Goddard in the fantastic “Songs To Save Your Life” mentions that the band recorded two different versions of this song with Troy Tate, but the other one is still uncirculated at this point in time.

“Hand In Glove”

Version in TATE1 set – 3:20 corrected / 3:30 uncorrected
Version in TATE2 set – 3:24

This one is quite easy. At 1:36 in the TATE1 version, there is an echoey background vocal of “kiss my shades…” absent in the other version. Also there’s something that sounds like flute in the outro of the TATE1 mix, but not in the TATE2 mix. There are many other minor differences, but these are the most obvious ones.

“Handsome Devil”

Version in TATE1 set – 2:50 corrected / 3:00 uncorrected
Version in TATE2 set – 2:52

The two mixes sound quite different. A very obvious difference is found at 1:45 when in the TATE1 version Morrissey stretches the ‘you’ in “yooooooou deserve it”, while in the TATE2 mix he sings “you deserve it, deserve it, deserve it”. At the very end of the song, after singing “Oh you handsome devil!”, he shouts “aah!” in the TATE1 mix, and “ow!” in the TATE2 mix.

“The Hand That Rocks The Cradle”

Only version, TATE2 set – 5:15

This song was not part of the TATE1 set, or if it was, it was never released with the rest.

“I Don’t Owe You Anything”

Version in TATE1 set – 4:24 corrected / 4:37 uncorrected
Version in TATE2 set – 4:30

These two versions are very similar. Not much work was done on the song between one and the other. The TATE1 mix has a one note bass intro before the drum kicks in, while the TATE2 mix, which is also sounds slower or smoother, has a 2-note bass intro. At 3:05 the finger clicking is more prominent in the TATE1 version. At 3:50 when Morrissey sings “life is never kind”, the inflexion is more on ‘never’ in the TATE1 version, and more on ‘kind’ in the TATE2 mix.

“Jeane”

Single version – 3:03
Demo – 2:46

All the Troy Tate outtakes bootlegs seem to feature the officially released version of this song, lifted from the “This Charming Man” 7″ single. However an obvious demo was found in a ‘Rough Trade Demos’ package circulated on the internet which mainly featured inferior sounding versions of the TATE2 set except for this song and “What Difference Does It Make”. This “Jeane” demo is shorter, rougher and lacks backing vocals. Its outro doesn’t have the accelerating drum and “ooh!” ending.

“Miserable Lie”

Version in TATE1 set – 4:39 corrected / 4:52 uncorrected
Version in TATE2 set – 4:37

The TATE2 mix usually starts with a drumstick click. At the end of the TATE1 version the echo fades out properly, while at the end of the TATE2 version, it is abruptly faded out, on whatever source in circulation.

“Pretty Girls Make Graves”

Studio version – 3:35

Because the Troy Tate produced version of this song had already been officially released by the band at the time of the initial release of the Troy Tate sessions on bootlegs, it seems like the makers decided to include it with the rest. The presence of the song at the very end of the track listings of the earliest bootlegs adds more weight to this theory, but doesn’t necessarily confirm it. Until someone finds any difference between the official and bootleg versions, this theory can be safely considered.

“Reel Around The Fountain”

Version in TATE1 set – 6:02 corrected / 6:13 uncorrected
Version in TATE2 set – 5:55

The TATE1 version starts with three notes not on the other one. The note is heard again at the very end after Morrissey’s voice fades out. There is no ‘oh’ before ‘people said’ in the TATE1 version, while in the other one Morrissey sings ‘*oh* people said’.

“Suffer Little Children”

Version in TATE1 set – 5:39 corrected / 5:54 uncorrected
Version in TATE2 set – 4:54

This one is rather obvious. At the end of the TATE2 mix, the outro guitar is accompanied by cymbal, but at the end of the TATE1 version, there is no cymbal. Instead the song segues into the piano part that was later used by the band in “Asleep”. The woman giggling or crying at the 4:00 mark is present in the TATE1 mix, and absent in the other one. Also, the “you might sleep but you will never dream” line differs.

Another slight but noticeable difference is the presence of an echoey ‘tock’ sound at the very beginning of the TATE2 mix. The same sound can be heard at the very beginning of the TATE2 mix of “Wonderful Woman”, but in a lower pitch.

“These Things Take Time”

Only version, TATE1 set – 2:40 corrected / 2:48 uncorrected

There is only one Troy Tate version of this song in circulation.

“What Difference Does It Make?”

Version in TATE1 set – 4:01 corrected / 4:13 uncorrected
Version in TATE2 set – 3:19
Demo – 3:56

This one is rather obvious. A look at the song lengths alone is enough to tell the versions apart. However it is worth mentioning the “oh!” before the drum kick in the intro of the TATE2 mix, and the piano that comes in right after that. Also what sounds like a violin is heard in the background soon after, while it only comes in at about 0:38 in the TATE1 mix.

At 1:36 when Morrissey sings “it makes none”, the violin (or something that sounds like that) is heard in the background of the TATE1 mix, while in the TATE2 mix, there is guitar picking and an added “aaahh” back vocal. At 1:46 there is slide after “tonight” in the TATE1 version, and dreamy echo on the background vox, but in the TATE2 version there is no slide and much less echo.

The ‘Rough Trade Demos’ version is unique, and different to both of the above mixes. It sounds like a primitive pre-overdub version of the TATE1 mix. It could be speculated that this version predates Troy Tate’s involvement.

“Wonderful Woman”

Version in TATE1 set – 3:19 corrected / 3:29 uncorrected
Version in TATE2 set – 3:18

The two versions of this song are very similar. The guitar seems to be slightly higher in the mix of the TATE1 version, particularly around the 1:45 mark. The only obvious difference is the presence of an echoey ‘tock’ sound at the very beginning of the TATE2 mix. The same sound can be heard at the very beginning of the TATE2 mix of “Suffer Little Children”, but in a higher pitch.

“You’ve Got Everything Now”

Version in TATE1 set – 4:15 corrected / 4:28 uncorrected
Version in TATE2 set – 4:29

The two versions are reasonably similar. From the 3:35 mark in the TATE 1 version, a kid’s voice (or perhaps slide guitar or some studio effect) can be heard.

The Smiths – DISCOGRAPHY

The greatest group of the eighties.

One of the greatest of all time.

Morrisey and Marr struck up a seminal partnership. Up there with Lennon/ Macca.

In a decade filled with crassness and emptiness, the Smiths shone like diamonds in the music gutter!

Nuff said.

Fine collection of their unmissable official LPs, some collections and some nice boots! Oh and some videos also!

What the fuck else could you want?!

Classic recordings of some of ‘s greatest masterpieces!

Magnificent!

There is a pair of CDs with the beautiful longstanding German performance of the Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos and Cantatas by the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra conducted by Karl Munchinger.

Suzanne Danco was a soloist in cantatas.

These recordings were made in 1950 and 1953 in the MONO regime and remastered in 2004. In the 50’s the quality of the German sound-recording equipment was on the high level. That is why there are no any noises or squeeze frequency range in proposed recordings.

Karl Munchinger

Country: Germany
Birth: May 29, 1915 in Stuttgart
Death: Mar 12, 1990 in Stuttgart

Karl Munchinger was one of those rare conductors whose careers are largely tied to their native city, in his case, Stuttgart. He was also closely identified with Bach, having conducted and recorded many of the Baroque master’s compositions, generally with high critical praise. Munchinger also conducted much music from the Classical and Romantic periods and, to a lesser extent, from the twentieth century. The majority of his numerous recordings were made for the Decca label. Munchinger showed musical talent as a child and later began studies at the Hochschule fur Musik in Stuttgart. He then studied conducting at the Leipzig Conservatory under Hermann Abendroth. After graduation, he returned to Stuttgart and freelanced as a conductor while primarily supporting himself as an organist and choir director. In 1941, he accepted the post of conductor of the Hanover Symphony Orchestra. This would be the only major appointment in his career outside of his native Stuttgart. He held no post from 1943 until the end of the war.

In summer 1945, he founded the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra, the ensemble he became identified with in much the way Karajan would be with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. He quickly built the orchestra up from modest resources in the postwar era, so that by the late-’40s, they were making their first important tours abroad. Munchinger and the SCO debuted in Paris in 1949, representing the first German ensemble to appear there since the prewar era. That same year, they made successful tours of England and Spain. In 1952, they toured Central and South America. The conductor himself made his American debut in 1953 (San Francisco) and took the SCO back to the U.S. the following year for a successful concert tour there. He would return with his ensemble in 1977, once more receiving generally favorable response from both critics and the public.

By the mid-’50s, Munchinger had established a reputation as one of the finest Bach interpreters in Europe. His admirers will assert that he was instrumental in restoring
Baroque traditions to Bach interpretation, filtering out errant Romantic elements that had crept in over the years. Also by this time, Munchinger and the SCO were receiving invitations from throughout Europe, Russia, and Japan, and appeared in these various locales over the next couple of decades, scoring particular triumphs at the yearly festivals in Edinburgh, Salzburg, Prague (Prague Spring), and Colmar. In the recording studio, Munchinger was scoring triumphs a well: in 1964, he led the SCO in a recording of Bach’s St. Matthew Passion with soloists Peter Pears, Hermann Prey, and Elly Ameling for the Decca label, that was awarded a Grand Prix du Disque.

He made numerous other notable recordings of choral works by Bach, as well as the Brandenburg Concertos; symphonies by Beethoven and Mozart; and even music by twentieth century Swiss composer Frank Martin.

Munchinger founded the Klassiches Philharmonie Stuttgart in 1966, an offshoot ensemble of the SCO, expanding the membership to 45 musicians in order to accommodate performing larger compositions. Munchinger and the SCO continued a fairly heavy performance and recording schedule in the 1970s and ’80s, with many tours abroad. In 1977, they became the first German ensemble to visit the People’s Republic of China. Munchinger retired in 1988 and died two years later.

Johann Sebastian Bach: Complete Works – Hänssler Edition Bachakademie

Johann Sebastian Bach: Complete Works – Hänssler Edition Bachakademie
2000 | APE + CUE | Booklets, Front Covers: 143 MB | 171 CDs: 51 GB

The greatest creator of music of them all? Yap … no doubt!

And this sublime package collects all of the master’s masterpieces! Yap… all of em!

Grouped into 43 distinct volumes. A paltry 171 CDs in all!!

The most magnificent music ever created!

Full info about available recordings of the master’s works … http://www.jsbach.org

A very different set than Teldec’s Bach 2000. The Hanssler Bachakademie, supervised by Helmut Rilling, is not HIP (historic instruments performance). The orchestras are warm and lush (but not huge). The soloists are, in general, extraordinary. The tempos are sane.

Hanssler has included fragments of some incomplete BWV’s that are not included in the Teldec set; a minor plus but appealing. I found I preferred these traditional instruments and the daring using of forte-piano in place of harpsichord on a few of the recordings (flute sonatas).

Highlights for me are The Well-Tempered Clavier Books 1 and 2, Musical Offering, Flute Sonatas, The Motets. I also found I prefer these Cantatas recordings to any other, including the new Koopman, Suzuki and the well-known Leonhart-Harnoncourt. While not the newest recordings, the sound is warmer which I prefer to the new state-of-the-art HIP recordings. Although most of the Cantatas are older recordings, much of the Hanssler Bachakademie edition is newly recorded for this project and the sound is consistent and excellent.

I am dirty as a glass roof in a train station
I feel like an empty cast iron exhibition


A great Lenny live LP. This 1973 album is comprised of live recordings made in 1970 and 1972 in London, Brussels, Paris, Berlin, Isle Of Wight and Tennessee.

Cohen’s fourth album was released during the three-year silence between Songs of Love and Hate and New Skin for the Old Ceremony.

Live Songs is a live album, or, more accurately -and as the title suggests – a compilation of live recordings, performed mostly in Europe in 1970 and 1972. Cohen is backed by an excellent country-influenced group, which includes guitarist/ fiddler Charlie Daniels and vocalist “Jennifer Warren”, who would soon become famous as Jennifer Warnes who, amongst other things (some good solo stuff and some succesful stuff too – especially the “Up Where We Belong” movie tie-in single with Joe Cocker) became a renowned interpreter of Lenny’s songs.

The album consists mostly of reinterpretations (often with additional or significantly altered lyrics) of songs from Cohen’s second album, Songs From a Room.

For example, “Nancy” is a version of “Seems So Long Ago, Nancy”, and “Improvisation” is an extended instrumental guitar trio version of the vamp from “You Know Who I Am”, which is also featured.

Strangely, neither Songs of Leonard Cohen nor Songs of Love and Hate (which itself had featured a live track, “Let’s Sing Another Song, Boys”, culled from the same tour as the 1970 recordings here) are represented.

The other tracks are a cover of the folk standard “Passing Through”, and two new compositions: “Please Don’t Pass Me By (A Disgrace)” (a thirteen-minute singalong recorded in 1970) and “Minute Prologue”.

At the beginning of a Paris, France performance of “Bird on the Wire”, Cohen recites the first verse of a French translation of the song’s lyric.

A “bonus” track, the sublime “Queen Victoria”, was recorded by Cohen alone in his Tennessee hotel room in 1972. This was later covered wonderfully by the great John Cale!

Lenny must have had a thing for weird stoic right-wing German-Brit bitches! Guess he must’ve later loved Maggie Thatcher!

Queen Victoria,
My father and all his tobacco loved you,
I love you too in all your forms,
the slim unlovely virgin floating among German beards,
the mean governess of the huge pink maps,
the solitary mourner of a prince.

Queen Victoria,
I am cold and rainy,
I am dirty as a glass roof in a train station,
I feel like an empty cast iron exhibition,
I want ornaments on everything,
because my love, she gone with other boys.

Queen Victoria,
do you have a punishment under the white lace,
will you be short with her, make her read those little Bibles,
will you spank her with a mechanical corset.
I want her pure as power, I want her skin slightly musty with petticoats
will you wash the easy bidet out of her head?

Queen Victoria,
I’m not much nourished by modern love,
will you come into my life
with your sorrow and your black carriages,
And your perfect
memories.

Queen Victoria,
the Twentieth Century belongs to you and me.
Let us be two severe giants not less lonely for our partnership,
who discoloured test tubes in the halls of Science,
who turned up unwelcome at every World’s Fair,
heavy with proverb and correction
confusing the star-dazed tourists
with our incomparable sense of loss.

The Beatles – Discography (41 Albums) – Remastered by Dr. Ebbetts


The Beatles – Discography (41 Albums)
MP3@320Kbps | Remastered by Dr. Ebbetts
41 Albums | 614 Tracks | TT 1:03:48:51 | iTunes-compliant tags | 4.2 GB
Dr. Ebbetts specializes in releasing digital remasterings from long-deleted and hard-to-obtain vinyl records, particularly issues from the audiophile Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs (MFSL) label. Although the Ebbetts catalogue has many artists, it is most known for Beatles CDs transferred from the best quality MFSL releases, US releases and mono vinyl sources. While lables like Millenium, BEAT, Mirror Spock and Fabulous Sound Labs (FSL) also issue ‘needle drops’ of Beatles vinyl, Dr. Ebbetts is regarded by many audiophiles as being the highest quality. For those interested in the technical, one source close to the Dr says that Ebbetts says that he uses no noise reduction and that there’s no magic formula…just a good ear and patience.

Great Australian Albums The Go-Betweens – 16 Lovers Lane

Another GBs nugget from the wonderful stripedsunlight

This is a wonderful document about 16 Lovers Lane, not only the finest of many fine GB’s LPs, but one of the finest albums in recent times! An album that was shamefully overlooked when it was released, the consequent lack of deserved commercial success contributing to the band splitting up for a long number of years!

Bob speaks about the show thusly;

The first Album in the 2nd series of Great Australian Albums aired in Australia this weekend and I managed to record it. I’m going to upload the hour long broadcast in 4 parts to make it a manageable download from the blog and the 1st part is up, with the rest as I find time this week.

So all you overseas fans who couldn’t watch and those here who missed the show here’s your opportunity.

The 1st series had some fantastic albums but the Triffids Born sandy devotional and the Saints I’m Stranded were the highlights for me and I have recordings of those 2 shows if there’s heaps of interest cause this takes a bit of work.

The series has held exceptionally high standards, with its interviews and insight and this was no exception. 16 Lovers has always been an album close to my heart, I cut my wedding cake to “love is a sign”, and it was the cumulation of everything the Gobs had achieved, it should have been their breakthrough album. It hasn’t a weak song on it and many exceptional songs.

The hour in which they delve into the making of the album and the collapse of the original band is fascinating, the way they operated, the relationships which were very convoluted and the disappointments which came after, had me glued to the TV.

All the band members talk with candor and humor, with Grant’s input made with footage from old interviews done in such a way that he was truly part of it.

I hope to hear many comments from you guys about things that stuck you or touched you.

I’ve included a few screen shots from this wonderful document.






The Go-Between’s started in the late 1970s when Robert Forster persuaded his friend Grant McLennan to form a band. They began writing songs and were soon in London where they made their base for most of the 1980s.

Lindy joined around 1980 and she and Robert became lovers. Shortly after the couple broke up, violinist Amanda Brown joined and became involved with Grant.




Through it all were a series of brilliant and critically acclaimed albums.

In 1988, they returned to Australia without longtime bass player Robert Vickers and was replaced by fellow Brisbane expatriate John Willsteed.

It was this line-up of the Go-Betweens that recorded 16 Lovers Lane, their most musically accomplished album.

The band then embarked on a year-long world tour. Then, on the 29th of December at 6pm Robert met with Lindy and Grant met with Amanda and sacked them.





Big thanks to Bob at stripedsunlight

There will always be suffering
It flows through life like water
I put my hand over her’s
Down in the lime tree arbour


This classic from 1997 is, in my view, by far the best of Cave’s albums, at once melancholic, yearning, beautiful and redemptive.

Also, importantly, there is a sense of truth and depth in the lyrics that gets lost in the archness of much of his lyrical output elsewhere.

This album speaks of lost love, pain, disappointment and distant yesterdays that survive only only in tortured memory. And it does so in a beautiful, resonant and poetic manner.

Cave’s subsequent, and indeed previous, albums, although sometimes containing moments of brilliance, unfortunately all fall short of this one.

Apparently, the females who caused such anguish to poor old Nicky, and who ‘inspired’ this exceptional work were;

  • his Brazilian ex-wife Viviane Carneiro, from whom he had then recently split (most explicitly on ‘People Ain’t No Good’ and ‘Brompton Oratory’),
  • Tori Amos (a rather incongruous pairing!) with whom he had some liaison and who apparently, as ‘Green Eyes’ relates, has a ‘twinkling cunt’ (she braided her pussy hairs, rumour has it! WTF!), and finally
  • Polly Jean Harvey (see the picture above for reasons why!… oh momma!! …) with whom there was a torrid affair which West Country Girl’ and ‘Black Hair’ speak most explicitly about.

This is what getting fucked up by a woman can do for you …. you can, if talented enough, make great art to release the demons! We see this scenario evidenced too in, amongst others, Dylan’s great ‘Blood on the Tracks’, the Stones best album ‘Exile on Main Street’ and in the only half decent album by bombastic U2 ‘Actung B’.

https://i0.wp.com/fc04.deviantart.com/fs24/f/2008/018/7/2/Boatman__s_Call_by_FeniceNera.jpg
by FeniceNera

Now I know Cave here wears his influences clearly on his sleeve (does that mean he ‘rips off’ other musicians?, I’m not sure … and I’m not sure it even matters … nothing in music, or art more broadly, is entirely, or even significantly, original).

As usual with Nick, there’s the continual strong influence at play (especially, in the stylised nature of ‘Green Eyes’).

However, foremost on this album there’s the footprint of Bob Dylan’s majestic Desirewhich too was a redemptive album by His Bobness (aka god) and a manifestation of the then current state of his relationship with estranged wife Sara, ‘Desire’ being essentially an extended love song and a kind of ‘take me back please’ plea to that beautiful lady.

Nick here basically copies Bob’s magnificent song Sarafrom Desire in ‘Where Do We Go Now but Nowhere’ – and also the song title ‘West Country Girl’ makes the Dylan influence even more obvious!

However, regardless of this, The Boatman’s Call is a supreme piece of work in its own right.

Never have Cave’s lyrics been so pared down, minimal, beautiful and poetic. Never therein have the spiritual and the profane merged and counterpointed so well (as is a hallmark of Leonard Cohen’s canon). Never has the imagery been almost haiku like in it’s beauty, simplicity and profundity.

Never has the music been so beautifully sparse and never has it meshed so consistently well with the lyric, across an entire album.

Never has there been such consistency in terms of quality and theme across one of his albums.

And never has the overall work so successfully exceeded even the sum of the magnificent individual parts!

This for sure is Cave’s meisterwerk!

Sony Music Entertainment Inc Cat # CK66210


just some grateful, faithful woman’s favourite singing millionaire,
the patron saint of envy and the grocer of despair



Another great Lenny live collection! Twelve amazing tracks here beautifully performed!!

This documents the Field Commander Cohen Tour of 1979 and the songs were recorded live at the Hammersmith Odeon, London, on 4, 5, and December 6, 1979 and at the Dome Theatre, Brighton, on December 15, 1979.

Lenny said this was his best tour ever!

Accompanying Cohen was the great jazz band Passenger from Austin, Texas, consisting of members Steve Meador on drums, Roscoe Beck on bass, Mitch Watkins on guitar, Bill Ginn on keyboards and Paul Ostermayer on sax and flute.

Other tour members included violinist Raffi Hakopian, oudist John Bilezikjian, and wonderful singers Jennifer Warnes and Sharon Robinson.

A sense of fun (well, by Lenny’s standards anyway!) pervades the album, taking its lead from the hilarious title track.

Just look at the amazing tracklist! Add that to the amazing performers and perfect performances and you’ve got something pretty fucking special!!

This LP’s a real pleasure to listen to!

Leonard Cohen recorded his last studio album–The Future–in 1992, so Columbia Records can perhaps be forgiven for continuing to mine the master tapes of his old live performances. The songs here are collected from two 1979 concerts at London’s Hammersmith Odeon and Brighton’s Dome Theatre.

At that time, Cohen was touring in the wake of his Phil Spector-produced Death of a Ladies’ Man album and was, to judge by the performances collected here, in fine form. His voice had not quite plummeted to the crockery-rattling depths captured on I’m Your Man (indeed, on “Memories”, he positively yelps), and the backing band, including Jennifer Warnes on backing vocals, is terrific throughout. The songs, of course, are impeccable, including “Lover Lover Lover,” “Bird on the Wire,” “So Long, Marianne,” and “Hey, That’s No Way to Say Goodbye.”

Field Commander Cohen, he was our most important spy:
wounded in the line of duty;
parachuting acid into diplomatic cocktail parties;
urging Fidel Castro to abandon fields and castles;
leave it all, and like a man,
came back to nothing special
such as waiting rooms and ticket lines,
silver bullet suicides,
and messianic ocean tides,
and racial roller-coaster rides,
and other forms of boredom advertised as poetry.

I know you need your sleep now.
I know your life’s been hard,
But many men are falling,
where you promised to stand guard.

I never asked but I heard that you cast your lot along with the poor;
that you be this and nothing more
than just some grateful, faithful woman’s favourite singing millionaire,
the patron saint of envy and the grocer of despair,
working for the Yankee dollar.
Drinkin´ rum and Coca-Cola. Go down Point Koomahnah.
Both mother and daughter. Working for the Yankee dollar.

I know you need your sleep now.
I know your life’s been hard,
But many men are falling,
where you promised to stand guard.

Lover, come and lie with me, if my lover is who you really are.
And be your sweetest self a while, until I ask for more, my child.
Then let the other selves be rung; let them manifest and come,
`til love is pierced and love is hung
and every taste is on the tongue,
and every kind of freedom done, then
oh my love, oh my love, oh my love

Leonard Cohen – New Skin for the Old Ceremony (1974)



Album : New Skin for the Old Ceremony
Artist : Leonard Cohen
Release Date : 1995
Original Release Date : 1974
Lable : Sony
Number of Discs : 1
Total time : 00:37:06

Those were the reasons and that was New York,
we were running for the money and the flesh.


A neglected Lenny classic from 1974. Eleven amazing tracks here. Beautiful timeless songs!

This was Cohen’s fourth studio album and here he seems to evolve away from the rawer sound of his earlier albums, with violas, mandolins, banjos, guitars, percussion and other instruments giving the album a more orchestrated – but nevertheless spare – sound.

In concert, a prolonged “I Tried to Leave You” has often been used to introduce Lenny’s band. The 14-minute rendition from the 1985 Montreux Jazz Festival even featured extra lines given to the backup singers.

“Who by Fire” explicitly relates to Cohen’s Jewish roots, echoing the words of the Unetanneh Tokef prayer and sung as a duet with Janis Ian (also Jewish; her birth name was Janis Eddy Fink).

“Who by Fire” was covered by great Brit indie band The House of Love on I’m Your Fan. It was also covered by British experimental band Coil, on their landmark album Horse Rotorvator, featuring Marc Almond on lead vocals.

“Leaving Green Sleeves” is a reworking of the 15th-century folk song “Greensleeves”. Cohen retains the chord progression and the words of the first two verses, but changes the melody and takes the latter verses in a different direction than the original.

//upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/1/1a/New_Skin_for_the_Old_Ceremony.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

The original cover art for New Skin for the Old Ceremony was an image from the alchemical text Rosarium philosophorum. The two winged and crowned beings in sexual embrace, caused his U.S. record label, Columbia Records to print one early edition of the album minus the image substituting instead a photo of Cohen!

The image originally came to public attention in C.G.Jung’s essay, The Psychology of The Transference (2nd ed.1966) where it is held by Jung to depict the union of psychic opposites in the consciousness of the enlightened saint. The sexual embrace as a symbol for this condition of psychic unity is also found frequently in Tibetan thangkas (sacred paintings).

Of course this LP contains one of Lenny’s best – certainly best known – songs, “Chelsea Hotel #2“!

There was an earlier version of this track called Chelsea Hotel #1“!

This however was only performed live and we already posted this fascinating earlier version on a great Lenny boot from Tel Aviv in 72.

“Chelsea Hotel #2” refers to a sexual encounter in the Chelsea Hotel, probably New York City’s most famous Bohemian hostelry.

But who was giving head on the unmade bed??

For some years, when performing this song live, Cohen would tell a story that made it clear that the person he was singing about was Janis Joplin. In a 1994 broadcast on the BBC, Cohen described that as “an indiscretion for which I’m very sorry, and if there is some way of apologising to the ghost, I want to apologise now, for having committed that indiscretion.”

Lloyd Cole covered the song on the Cohen tribute album I’m Your Fan, and Rufus Wainwright performed the song at the 2006 live tribute, Leonard Cohen: I’m Your Man. Regina Spektor has also covered the song in live performances.

Cohen’s former bandleader and guitarist Ron Cornelius says he co-wrote “Chelsea Hotel #2” with Cohen during an eight-hour airplane trip. Cornelius is listed as co-writer in the BMI database but not with the U.S. Copyright Office or on any Cohen record (until the release of the Leonard Cohen: I’m Your Man soundtrack in July 2006).

According to Cornelius, the song was re-copyrighted as #2 in order to leave him out of the credits. He hired a music attorney and was paid $8,500 for not pursuing the case. Following the discussion about Cornelius’s claims, Cohen and Cornelius met in March 2006 after twenty years. “His memory is better than mine. From now on, let it be known we wrote Chelsea Hotel together”, Cohen wrote to Leonard Cohen Forum.

I remember you
well in the Chelsea Hotel,
you were talking so brave and so sweet,
giving me head on the unmade bed,
while the limousines wait in the street.
Those were the reasons and that was New York,
we were running for the money and the flesh.
And that was called love for the workers in song
probably still is for those of them left.

Ah but you got away, didn’t you babe,
you just turned your back on the crowd,
you got away, I never once heard you say,
I need you, I don’t need you,
I need you, I don’t need you
and all of that jiving around.

I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel
you were famous, your heart was a legend.
You told me again you preferred handsome men
but for me you would make an exception.
And clenching your fist for the ones like us
who are oppressed by the figures of beauty,
you fixed yourself, you said, “Well never mind,
we are ugly but we have the music.”

And then you got away, didn’t you babe…

I don’t mean to suggest that I loved you the best,
I can’t keep track of each fallen robin.
I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel,
that’s all, I don’t even think of you that often.

Leonard Cohen – Live Songs (1973)

Album : Live Songs
Artist : Leonard Cohen
Release Date : 2001
Original Release Date : 1973
Lable : Columbia Europe
Number of Discs : 1
Total time : 00:49:08
Total size : 112 MB

I am dirty as a glass roof in a train station
I feel like an empty cast iron exhibition


A great Lenny live LP. This 1973 album is comprised of live recordings made in 1970 and 1972 in London, Brussels, Paris, Berlin, Isle Of Wight and Tennessee.

Cohen’s fourth album was released during the three-year silence between Songs of Love and Hate and New Skin for the Old Ceremony.

Live Songs is a live album, or, more accurately -and as the title suggests – a compilation of live recordings, performed mostly in Europe in 1970 and 1972. Cohen is backed by an excellent country-influenced group, which includes guitarist/ fiddler Charlie Daniels and vocalist “Jennifer Warren”, who would soon become famous as Jennifer Warnes who, amongst other things (some good solo stuff and some succesful stuff too – especially the “Up Where We Belong” movie tie-in single with Joe Cocker) became a renowned interpreter of Lenny’s songs.

The album consists mostly of reinterpretations (often with additional or significantly altered lyrics) of songs from Cohen’s second album, Songs From a Room.

For example, “Nancy” is a version of “Seems So Long Ago, Nancy”, and “Improvisation” is an extended instrumental guitar trio version of the vamp from “You Know Who I Am”, which is also featured.

Strangely, neither Songs of Leonard Cohen nor Songs of Love and Hate (which itself had featured a live track, “Let’s Sing Another Song, Boys”, culled from the same tour as the 1970 recordings here) are represented.

The other tracks are a cover of the folk standard “Passing Through”, and two new compositions: “Please Don’t Pass Me By (A Disgrace)” (a thirteen-minute singalong recorded in 1970) and “Minute Prologue”.

At the beginning of a Paris, France performance of “Bird on the Wire”, Cohen recites the first verse of a French translation of the song’s lyric.

A “bonus” track, the sublime “Queen Victoria”, was recorded by Cohen alone in his Tennessee hotel room in 1972. This was later covered wonderfully by the great John Cale!

Lenny must have had a thing for weird stoic right-wing German-Brit bitches! Guess he must’ve later loved Maggie Thatcher!
https://i0.wp.com/www.cathedralcatholic.org/academics/homework/johnson/Queen_Victoria_.jpg


Queen Victoria,
My father and all his tobacco loved you,
I love you too in all your forms,
the slim unlovely virgin floating among German beards,
the mean governess of the huge pink maps,
the solitary mourner of a prince.

Queen Victoria,
I am cold and rainy,
I am dirty as a glass roof in a train station,
I feel like an empty cast iron exhibition,
I want ornaments on everything,
because my love, she gone with other boys.

Queen Victoria,
do you have a punishment under the white lace,
will you be short with her, make her read those little Bibles,
will you spank her with a mechanical corset.
I want her pure as power, I want her skin slightly musty with petticoats
will you wash the easy bidet out of her head?

Queen Victoria,
I’m not much nourished by modern love,
will you come into my life
with your sorrow and your black carriages,
And your perfect
memories.

Queen Victoria,
the Twentieth Century belongs to you and me.
Let us be two severe giants not less lonely for our partnership,
who discoloured test tubes in the halls of Science,
who turned up unwelcome at every World’s Fair,
heavy with proverb and correction
confusing the star-dazed tourists
with our incomparable sense of loss.

Tracklisting

1. Minute Prologue
2. Passing Through
3. You Know Who I Am
4. Bird on the Wire
5. Nancy
6. Improvisation
7. Song of Isaac
8. Please Don’t Pass Me By
9. Tonight Will Be Fine
10. Queen Victoria

Leonard Cohen – Songs of Love and Hate (1971)

Album : Songs of Love and Hate
Artist : Leonard Cohen

You’re living for nothing now,
I hope you’re keeping some kind of record.


Lenny’s greatest album, the classic Love and Hate from 1971. One of the greatest albums of all time!

Eight seminal tracks here. Beautiful timeless songs! Pure poetry.

This was mainly recorded in Columbia Studios, Nashville, from September 22 to 26, 1970. “Sing Another Song, Boys” was recorded at the Isle of Wight Festival on August 30, 1970. Further recording took place at Trident Studios in London. The album reached #145 on the Billboard list, but was his most commercially successful album in many other parts of the world, reaching #4 in the UK and #8 in Australia.

This is a sort of concept album – using the best meaning of that term! As it was originally designed to be listened to on vinyl record, there is a “hate” side and a “love” side, rather than necessarily being just sides 1 and 2!

Interestingly too, each song seems to have a corresponding counterpart! For example, “Avalanche” and “Love Calls You by Your Name” are stylistically very similar, with familiar structures to each other. The same holds true for all the other songs (“Joan of Arc” to “Last Year’s Man”, “Diamonds in the Mine” to “Sing Another Song, Boys”).


The back cover of the album bears the lines:

They locked up a man
Who wanted to rule the world
The fools
They locked up the wrong man

This LP was ranked 74 on Pitchfork Media’s list of the 100 best albums of the 1970s. Only 74? Fuck off!

The songs are raw and emotive and often frankly personal – especially the wonderful “Famous Blue Raincoat” which tells of a kind of complex “Jules et Jim” threesome involving a chick called Jane, and which ends with the great line “Sincerely, L. Cohen”.

“Famous Blue Raincoat” has been covered numerous times, most notably by Jennifer Warnes, who had earlier toured as a back-up singer for Cohen, on her 1987 tribute album to Cohen, Famous Blue Raincoat. It has also been covered by Tori Amos on the Leonard Cohen tribute album Tower of Song.

by Michelle?


It’s four in the morning, the end of December
I’m writing you now just to see if you’re better
New York is cold, but I like where I’m living
There’s music on Clinton Street all through the evening.

I hear that you’re building your little house deep in the desert
You’re living for nothing now, I hope you’re keeping some kind of record.

Yes, and Jane came by with a lock of your hair
She said that you gave it to her
That night that you planned to go clear
Did you ever go clear?

Ah, the last time we saw you you looked so much older
Your famous blue raincoat was torn at the shoulder
You’d been to the station to meet every train
And you came home without Lili Marlene

And you treated my woman to a flake of your life
And when she came back she was nobody’s wife.

Well I see you there with the rose in your teeth
One more thin gypsy thief
Well I see Jane’s awake —

She sends her regards.

And what can I tell you my brother, my killer
What can I possibly say?
I guess that I miss you, I guess I forgive you
I’m glad you stood in my way.

If you ever come by here, for Jane or for me
Your enemy is sleeping, and his woman is free.

Yes, and thanks, for the trouble you took from her eyes
I thought it was there for good so I never tried.

And Jane came by with a lock of your hair
She said that you gave it to her
That night that you planned to go clear —

Sincerely, L. Cohen
