(Well, before you accuse me of bandwagon jumping, I'd planned to post this for ages. I've just seen 'Crashing Dream' posted on 'The Commercial Zone' and 'Happy Nightmare Baby' posted on 'Songs From Under The Floorboards', so this one's for the hat trick).
I have three criteria to post stuff: is it brilliant? Is it available as a catalogue item or official download? Has it been posted recently on a blog? If the answer is yes, no, no then up it goes. The first criteria is easy...for the other two, I refer to Amazon and Totally Fuzzy. According to Amazon, the current sale price of 'Perfume River' is £273.08. £273.08!! Hells bells, my first car didn't cost that much.
This is a great soundboard recording of a great show including 'Crashing Dream' (a more hi-fi recording than the one on 'Demolition') and a few tasty covers. RP are well represented in Blogland and quite rightly so, but given the scarcity of this release, I feel it my duty to share. Don't thank me, just pass it forward... I discovered the band just before their death knell - 'Depending On You' from the Whistle Test blew my doors off. As a result, 'Crashing Dream' is my favourite release of theirs, eighties production, synths and all. That was the first vinyl album I ever digitized, having found a lovely clean copy in a record shop in Birmingham for 99p. Thats £272.09 less than is being asked for for 'Perfume River'
And like it says on the CD 'In fond memory of Will Glenn'
Oh, by the way, if you are considering buying the copy on Amazon, you may be interested in a used car I have for sale...
This can't be today
You are my friend
Sad eyes kill
No easy way down
Ain't that nothin'
What she's done to your mind
Like a hurricane
What goes on
Rain Parade: Perfume River
