TLW cover version update

Postby CarstenWohlfeld » Fri Nov 17, 2006 6:42 am

sorry for starting a new thread for this, but i didn't know where else it would have fitted in.

tune in next monday to Eva Umbauer's show on Austrian National radio FM4, for a radio session with TLW content.

Ken Stringfellow recorded a session for the show, playing the grand piano in the ORF broadcasting house, that featured "Shapes". And a lovely version it was, too.

Also, Ken will relaase a covers record next spring that will feature his version of "It'll Be A Breeze". It's already recorded and is currently awaiting a new mix.

just thought I'd mention it.

I know I'm biased but Ken Stringfellow releasing a covers record deserves a topic of its own. Especially with such LW content. I might even use the word awesome in this respect. In fact I think I will.

AWESOME!

I think Liesbeth was right, this deserves a topic of its own. This is supposed to be a happy occasion! Let's not bicker and argue about who killed who....

I just wish he'd have included his piano cover of "Shapes" on the record. Oh and I wish I knew why he changed the Breeze lyrics from "Is it your kisses I'm feeling" to "Are these your kisses I'm feeling"? Is there anything wrong with John's grammar?... I don't think so :)

By the way, I spotted Eva U. at the LW show yesterday, so maybe there'll be even more Long Wintery goodness tonight (click "stream" on the top of this page, show starts at 10 p.m., that's 4 p.m. EST.)

EDIT: I just asked, and there'll be something indeed, and a band portrait tuesday night. I'll certainly try to tape everything, if someone's able to digitalize this, I would happily send them the tape.

It depends on whether the pronoun refers to the kisses (plural) or the feeling of them, which could be a singular (a feeling) or a plural (state of feeling many kisses). From the context of the sentence, it appears that the narrator is feeling many kisses.

In a more poetic mode, though, "is" and "it" and "kiss" have a more pleasant assonance. "Are" is a broader sound. When humming this to myself, I've been known to make the kiss singular and stick in a "that" before "I'm feeling," which makes it sound like Johnny Cash song, somehow.

"Is that what I'm feeling? Your kisses? Is that it?"

It.

please tell me someone got the Ken thing recorded, I wasn't home last night. Shapes on piano, mang!

By the way, TLW announcing Breeze as a Ken Stringfellow cover was a nice touch.

She only played "Find Yourself Alone" from the session, the rest will follow at a later show of hers. Still, she played 4 TLW songs (plus Posies, Ken, Jon Auer, Oasis?) and a girl who's working at the radio station got to talk about her love for the El Dubs (she got to see them this year in Austin).

That's what I thought, but what do I know about songwriters' grammar...

"Songwriters' Grammar" would make a good T-shirt slogan.


Or song title, for that matter.

Randy Newman makes me think of Family Guy. Thanks for that, Seth MacFarlane.

there's only one theme with Ms. U, and it got a little tiresome this year, to be honest.
Anywya, I was so tired from last weekend, I jsut fell into bed before the session started, will have to get my hands on it some other way.

There seems to be no KS show without Long Winters cover, and I hope you won't mind if I bore you with another 'tubed video of Mr. Stringfellow covering "It'll be a breeze" (solo, as an encore after a wonderful show with a backing band).

I wasn't bored! But then again I'm biased in favour of Ken Stringfellow and have less of an allegiance towards this particular song.

Man, I was jealous when Ken played with band in 2002 in the US only, and I'm jealous now - what's with Vienna to get all this love? (although granted, Moni did invite me to come over for this show).
