Yeh I know I could go and have a listen on Spotify but I'm a busy man* - save me some time?
*not that busy, obviously
i think the opening track Glory might even be my favourite Television song. Definitely worth a listen. the later album is just a bit boring in my opinion.
if you can check out the old whaldorf recording.
Nowhere near as sky-scrapingly amazing as Marquee Moon but well worth listening to.
Otherwise the only non MM stuff worth bothering with is the numerous live albums , especially The Blow Up.
But "Days" is certainly in contention on that list.
Assuming you don't have the re-released/expanded version of 'Marquee Moon', then seek out the track 'Little Johnny Jewel' it's not on any album proper. As above, 'Glory' on 'Adventure' is great and also one of my favourite Television tracks.
Not to hijack the thread, but whilst we're here, where's a good place to start with Verlaine's solo stuff? The only track I'm familiar with is 'Kingdom Come' via Bowie's cover...love it.
all the songs sound like the slower ones on adventure. maybe i'm just always comparing everything to MM.
Dissolve/Reveal is a cracking song.
but this is something else! i might download it and compare. thanks anyway.
