Fragments Of A Rainy Season (Vinyl) (Reissue)
Not yet reviewed.
John Cale will re-issue the classic live album 'Fragments of a Rainy Season,' featuring his revered interpretation of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah," amongst many solo versions from his enduring catalogue and previously unreleased outtakes, through Double Six / Domino.
'Fragments of a Rainy Season' is the the first live John Cale album to feature him performing solo and "unplugged" – before that term became a mid-'90s buzzword.
In contrast to the jaundiced punk truculence of 'Sabotage/Live' (1979) or 'Even Cowgirls Get the Blues' (1986), 'Fragments' gives us Cale at his most melodic and moving, a mellowed and certainly a soberer man in a Yamamoto jacket and a lopsided haircut running through a selection of his prettiest songs.
It's a Cale many of us love deeply, a man alone at a concert-hall Steinway revisiting the pop-rock of 'Paris 1919' and 'A Child's Christmas in Wales,' as wistful and whimsical as any '70s singer-songwriter holding court at L.A.'s Troubadour club.
On 'Fragments of a Rainy Season' – fragments of pain from a long and sometimes mystifying career – the rain comes down in buckets.
