Above is a solo acoustic version, which is pretty great. However...
Google up ' "truth no. 2" silver bell '. Look carefully and you will find what you seek.
|Elton John - Burn Down The Mission|
(Feb 28, 2010 - 16:25)
|I used to think Elton John was a genius arranger as well as a great composer. The truth is that he recorded the piano and the vocal, handed the song off to Gus Dudgeon (1942-2002) and left the building (http://mixonline.com/recording/interviews/audio_gus_dudgeon/). According to an interview I read with Gus somewhere, Elton approved of every finished track but one. Here's to Gus, wherever he is. And here's to Bernie, who wrote some of the most poetic and evocative lyrics of his career on this album. |
|Koop - Koop Island Blues (w/ Ane Brun)|

|I liked this song until I read up about Koop's production methods and then I loved it. Basically the reverse of how a Britney Spears track is produced.|
|Great Lake Swimmers - Pulling on a Line|

|Hmm, clicked over to Amazon to download it and guess what—it was free. I'm going to take that 99 cents I saved and buy 1/3 of a latte with it.|

|Eastmountainsouth - Rain Come Down|
(Feb 18, 2010 - 01:25)
|I bought this CD after I heard them on Morning Becomes Eclectic and then Goodwilled it when I listened more more closely and realized that it was stealth Christian rock. I felt like the church organist who accidentally ordered the Frank Zappa songbook online. There should be some kind of a PMRC sticker on stuff like this. With a picture of the dude from Creed. |
|Ellie Lawson - L.A.|
(Dec 07, 2009 - 13:51)
|Hmm, wondering why I never heard such a well-produced CD so I googled:|
"Atlantic Records declined to release Ellie Lawson's debut album, The Philosophy Tree. Shortly after being dropped by Atlantic, Lawson picked up the pieces and got herself an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres' successful daytime talk show. Following that appearance, Barnes & Noble came to the rescue, arranging an exclusive release of the album through its retail stores, and in August 2005 Philosophy Tree finally appeared. And it's weird that Atlantic passed, because Lawson's debut is a dead ringer for Unwritten, the debut of similarly blonde, similarly British Natasha Bedingfield that blew up the U.K. charts."
|Hans Zimmer - You're So Cool|
(Jan 29, 2008 - 18:13)
|The Carl Orff piece that Zimmer paid homage to was popularized in Terrence Malick's stunning first film, Badlands. Anyone who's gone to film school knows this film and the music. True Romance was supposedly some kind of a homage to Badlands, or perhaps that's the explanation that was floated after the similarities were pointed out. |
