Thanks to my new-found corporate-puppet status, I’ve blagged a copy of the album from Feargal at Setanta. I’m a bit puzzled as to the format (it says three CD singles, with different live tracks released on 10/3/97) but there’s no denying that it sounds wonderful.
All the tracks were recorded live at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire in October of last year. There’s the same lushness as Casanova but there’s also an emotional progression. Whereas a lot of Casanova was quite coy and playful, these songs (sorry, don’t know the titles) sound a bit more honest and vulnerable.
The second track on the CD reminds me of ‘Spread A Little Happiness’ and I’m *sure* I’ve heard this on the radio. Is it the current single?
I’m really quite envious of Neil Hannon’s vocal control and range. Bastard…
love and kisses,
