This is the alternative, re-recorded version of "Ceremony" now also featuring Gillian Gilbert in the band. This was released in September 1981 (originally). My previous post (green and copper sleeve) shows the original version of New Order's first single, released in March of 1981.
Strange, they were fairly popular for a while. In Pop music history another failed act that you can call a one-hit wonder.
Channeling @luckybaer :
Mine is a New Zealand pressing of the original (1982) release and therefore doesn't have the red 'R', but this is a nicer image than the ones I could quickly find of the original.
Nice!! This is the version I have - released in 2019...
This is what the cover of my "Blue Monday" 12" single looks like (this isn't mine, but an image I found on Discogs):
I've got a 2019 release of "Temptation" coming early next week. That song is one of my favorites, and I can't wait to compare that version to the version on Substance and the version on Total.
Just discovered this song a couple of weeks ago.
Yes, it is a brand new song.
Fleetwood Mac - Say You Will
A new release from Marbin, IDK how to describe their music, very eclectic influences but this is just beautiful solo guitar.
The album is called "Ten Years in the Sun"
On a Monday this song came back while humming during work. I still dig it I guess...
Carpenters - The Rainbow Connection
This arrived today. Musically, I like it a lot. My copy is a pretty clean pressing, although they messed up the label around the hole on Side 2. It is a much cleaner pressing than my copy of "Exciter," which arrived a few days ago. New vinyl from "non-audiophile" labels is almost like a crapshoot!
Boys Say Go I think is one of their most gayer tracks that Depeche Mode ever did. I play that loud when I'm near my friends who are virgins, they are like turn that shit off because they think they might turn gay after listening to it, quite funny back in College. Nodisco is very solid as well, more/less how I feel about Discos at times. Of course as soon as Vincent Clark left DM I like the darker/emo feel of their 80s output. Depression shit sign me up.
Also, I don't like current vinyl presses. Too much hit/miss.
Meanwhile some Video Game Music:
Ay mama, belly full of lechon asado,moros y christianos and maduros ,sipping on a flor de cana 18 (always be sure your liquor is older than your women) and wreathed in the smoke from an El rey del mundo (counterfit,no doubt)...what better time to play this old standards chestnut?
Been too busy lately (sigh, WFH is much more time consuming than "regular" work). But last night spent much of the evening listening to Don Byron's CD "A Fine Line" (2000), here's a couple of tracks:
"The Ladies Who Lunch" (Cassandra Wilson on vocals)
Stevie Wonder's "Creepin'" (Patricia O'Callaghan vocals)
"Reach Out I'll be There"
"something completely different"
I love Don Byron's music. He's fearless, inventive beyond belief, and never repeats himself--a modern music force. Saw him a couple times in the '97-'98 timeframe & was wowwed. Not only does he play one of my favorite instruments (rarely seen in jazz these days) but he has a knack for finding young bandmates whom the world will be aware of very soon.
Another quarantine inspired recording
Roger Waters "Mother"
