    Were you there?

    Sadly not and I subsequently ruined the album for myself by listening to it too much… but I’m going to give it a whirl this evening.

    1. B9Com From No

      Indeed
      I must have listened to it 1,099+ times
      Title track still sends a shiver up spine though
      I saw him in the Tivoli, it was meh, bad sound

        I did the same with Buena Vista Social Club and The La’s album to the extent that I rendered them unlistenable now….

          never in a million years would I have guessed that

          (the La’s, yes; not the other two)

    Radio1 did a great piece on him a couple of years ago. I’m not sure if it is available on podcast but it covered his earlier years and how he came to play at the Trinity Ball. Great piece of radio.

          “….Although Rufus Wainwright’s version of the song “Hallelujah” appeared in the soundtrack album, it was John Cale’s version that appeared in the film. Wainwright was an artist for DreamWorks and John Cale was not, thus licensing issues prohibited Cale’s version from appearing in the soundtrack album.”
