...anyone know what album that was from?
hmm let me think he diiiid.
Nightwatchman from the AMC album Engine
Why Won't You Stay from the AMC album Everclear
Johnny Mathis' Feet from the AMC album Mercury
Patriot's Heart from the AMC album Love Songs for Patriots
The Windows on the World from the AMC album The Golden Age
No Easy Way Down from the solo album 60 Watt Silver Lining
hmmm can't remember any more clearly...
Myopic Books from Love Songs for Patriots
from memory, he also opened with 'Why I'm Bullshit' from Klamath
and did a cover of 'I Left My Heart In San Fransisco'
a pretty unusual set, given that he usually plays guitar and pretty much always plays tracks from California ... really enjoyed it
at least on the greek live album.
its no 'somewhere', mind.
absolutely killed. Love that song.
thanks! I got the impression that the piano-lounge-jazz thing was a re-working? Or am I wrong?
At St Bonaventure's in Bristol. It was just about the best I've ever seen him. My fave gig of last year as it happens.
I've seen him several times over the past 22 years, mostly with AMC. He's never been less than magnificent. One of the truly incredible frontmen, but not one that usually gets a lot of praise.
most of the songs were radically different from the album versions, which are mainly guitar-based ... Mission Rock Resort and No Easy Way Down were probably the least altered ... but he often re-works his own material (he re-recorded many of his best songs with traditional Greek musicians on The Ugly American, and has worked with many different musicians outside of AMC) ... he's probably the single artist I've seen perform most often - both solo and with AMC - and every show is always special
if you like what you heard and what to hear something similar then either Mercury (AMC) or 60 Watt Silver Lining (solo) are probably the best places to start
anyone off to see this play at the brighton festival,its on at the old market till 23rd may,songs by eitzel.sounds fab.
I will, much appreciated.
hopefully it will be performed again (ideally in London) at some point
good article about it here ...
