Re: Problems with Pablo Picasso [re: cmljr]  

yeah i hate it when he either forgets or rearranges lyrics in live performances...ie in tvc15 live versions he sings 'creature feature', would rather he didn't sing it!!!

EVERYONE IS ENTITLED..TO MY OPINION

John Cale cover is better.

Re: Problems with Pablo Picasso [re: cmljr]  

I do agree that the Riverside performance was very good. Does anyone know about the Oslo, Norway performance? I haven't heard any complaints about it yet

Re: A Song for Future Generations [re: Adam]  

No, No, No! Gail filling in verses is NOT GOOD. She's got a lovely voice and I enjoy hearing it immesely on lead in Under Pressure and as back-up on other songs. But I HATE when Gail "fills in" for notes David feels less confident about hitting. At the 2000 BBC concert (I think, or was it the Bridge School Benefit, I forget), she sang part of the lead on Aladdin Sane and I HATED THAT!!! David sang the first verse (albeit at a lower key than the original song recorded in '73) and it sounded great, then Gail sang the second verse at a higher key (more akin to the original key). But since David's lower key first verse WORKED, I didn't like having him abdicate the second verse to Gail so she could sing it in a higher key. He should have done the whole song in the lower key, or, if he didn't like it that way, he shouldn't have done it at all.

I love Gail, but when I show up to see David live, I want to hear HIS voice on lead.

Maybe he could slow it down and deliver the song in the same style as the original.

Agree!
Can't see why DB wanted to cover it in the first place. To me Cale's version is the only.
(And Richman's is good too, but it just doesn't have that special place inside my heart. Ok, so Cale's version is not the only one... GO JOHN CALE! anyway.)

"I suppose it's sit nice next the the three (yes THREE!!!!!!) editions of Reality I now have, regular singe cd, double cd with three extra tracks and tour edition (with live DVD)
They produce it because they know there are people like us who must own everything. We fall for it because we love the music so much."

Double CD and tour edition I could accept but not the single disc version, too.
