Re: "The Record Producers: Tony Visconti" CD new [re: Adam]  

I wonder what Nile Rodgers thinks of track two?

I actually really like the concept of this compilation, it's been done for Brian Wilson(projects outside of the Beach Bums)Phil Spector, Quincy Jones and Jack Neitchze.

It was a fine idea at the time new [re: bowiefanpeter]  

I'm fairly sure Visconti didn't do This Town Ain't... either, but as Elvis Costello would say, it was a brilliant mistake.

Edit: Actually, now I see that they re-worked the song with Visconti in 1997.

Everyday I agree more with Strawman

I assume track two is Iggy Pop's version of "China Girl," since Iggy is mentioned on the album sleeve, and Visconti mixed his version of "China Girl." Also, it would be kinda stupid having two Bowie tracks appear consecutively.

It's the Iggy Pop version. Which is the original recording of China Girl.

Don't treat him like an idiot, it says "Bowie, David" on there so he's assuming that's the correct one.

For the sake of the compilation's integrity, I hope it is the Iggy Pop version. I got the track listing and cover from Amazon.co.uk but I cannot find it elsewhere at this stage.

Re: "The Record Producers: Tony Visconti" new [re: MajorBilge]  

I guess we should likewise assume that 'The Prettiest Star' is the 1970 version of the song (with Bolan on guitar).

Other than "Heroes", these are relatively obscure pickings of Bowie's catalogue. Were these Visconti's personal selections?

Ta, the email is on the way.

Thinking about this further, it would have been great to have a Finn Bros track on this CD (preferably 'Edible Flowers' or 'Disembodied Voices' that show Tony at his best). I know Visconti is a fan of the work he did with them and I know Neil Finn doesn't mind the recordings being traded around.

I've read elsewhere that the version of "Heroes" on this CD is the French one and that this release is therefore this version's digital debut.

Re: "The Record Producers: Tony Visconti" new [re: MajorBilge]  

Hi Adam,

I would have chosen some different tracks but I had final approval of these. They had to tie in with the Radio 2 series on record producers. At some point in the future I'll compile a 'best of...' mainly made up of the obscure gems.

Of course the 1970 version of The Prettiest Star is included -- I had nothing to do with the later version (which Mr. Bowie informed me they had to rerecord because they couldn't find the master tape and remix the original in stereo).

Cheers,

Tony

Dear Mr. Moqito,

No, I have never heard of "Tubgirl" and don't think I want to.

To answer your second question: no, I no longer have what you call a "Disco Stu Fro." Please do not email me again.

this might be a fabrication on my part

Stu has a crush on me.

Re: "The Record Producers: Tony Visconti" CD new [re: MajorBilge]  

I have Visconti's U2 work. Probably on both cd and vinyl. I was just mocking that fact that U2 is often heavily touted in his bio when he only did one or two live recordings for the group.

The only thing I would want to know, that would warrent emailing Tony, is about the 24 songs he was quoted as being fully recorded for Lodger. Do you remember anything about them? Was one of them "I Prey Ole"? Were any of them recycled for Scary Monsters?

I know that he won't give a direct answer. Neither will Bowie.

Why? Do Adam Ant, Boomtown Rats & the Stranglers have previously unreleased material that would have gone on the Visconti album?

Unless I'm sorely mistaken, Visconti only produced Mondo Bongo for the Rats, which is an abysmally bad album. Well, I suppose, Elephant's Graveyard could have been a decent addition but I'm fairly certain that Visconti himself would like to forget the existence of such a horrendous album.

The elephant's graveyard is a great song and the current reissue of the album has a much improved running order and some interesting bonus tracks.

Re: "The Record Producers: Tony Visconti" new [re: trendy rechauffe]  

Those who were there when Mondo Bongo came out will remember what a miserable letdown the album was. The Boomtown Rats had delivered a mighty strong triptych consisting of the self-titled debut, Tonic For The Troops and The Fine Art Of Surfacing. Excellent and thrilling stuff. Then came the shit. And they never recovered.

For someone hearing the album now as an isolated item it may come across a little less bad - but then it was horror.

Wow, so Tony mixed "Flowers in the Rain". Too bad my brother sold his single collection, so I can't check if this is the version I used to listen to when I was a kid.

But it seems I have been secretely brain-washed for the Visconti sound before I heard the first Bowie song.
