Almond, Marc - Willing Sinner- Live At The Passionchurch, Berlin Willing Sinner- Live At The Passionchurch, Berlin
Pop New - LP GET 149 Get Back
Sealed 2006 2LP Original. “Complementing The Similarly Titled Video Release Featuring A 1991 Concert In Berlin, The Willing Sinner Finds Marc Almond At One Of The Most Unusual — And Fascinating — Points Of His Career. On The Verge Of Scoring A Big Solo Hit In The U.K. With His Cover Of "The Days Of Pearly Spencer," Part Of His Extremely Lush Album From That Year, Tenement Symphony, Almond Himself Increasingly Favored Performing Stripped-Down Shows Consisting Of Only Himself And One Regular Musician, Pianist Martin Watkins. While Seemingly Counterintuitive From The Perspective Of The Business, This Was Just What The Doctor Ordered From An Artistic Point Of View, Letting Almond Showcase Not Only The Increasing Depth And Ability Of His Vocals And Song Choices But His Now Well-Honed Air Of The Professional Treading The Boards. Well-Recorded And With An Audibly Thrilled Crowd Supporting Him, Almond Reworks Both Solo And Soft Cell Songs To Either Emphasize The Core Melodies At The Heart Of Bigger Numbers Such As "Something's Got A Hold Of My Heart," A Brilliant Take On "Mr. Sad," Or "Toreador In The Rain" (The Latter Punctuated By Enthusiastic Handclaps) Or Bring Out The Elegant Melancholy Already Apparent In Songs Such As "Youth" And "Stories Of Johnny." Watkins' Performance Is Equally Top-Notch, Matching Almond Well As His Second Of Three Key Collaborators Over The Years (Along With Dave Ball And Neal X); Given That The Two Never Recorded A Studio Album Together On Their Own, It Makes This Document All The More Impressive. A Relative Rarity Surfaces With A Cover Of "A Man," Which Wouldn't See The Light Of Day In Studio Form Until The Release Of "Absinthe," While Agnes Bernelle Joins Almond On-Stage To Re-Create The Stars We Are-Era Duet "Kept Boy" — A Great Performance But, By Default, Appearing Without The Outrageously Fun Mugging Apparent In The Video.” – Ned Raggett, All Music Guide... more details
 
Almond, Marc - Jacques Jacques
Pop Used - LP BREL 1 Some Bizzare
1989 UK Original With Custom Inner Sleeve. Vinyl Appears New, Unplayed. “Recorded On And Off Over Three Years, Through All Sorts Of Record Company And Band Changes, And Ultimately Released Independently When No Major Label Would Take A Chance On It, Perhaps The Most Striking Thing About This Labor Of Love Is Its General Consistency. Much More Than That, Though, Jacques Turns Out To Be One Of The Best Single-Artist Tribute Records Yet Recorded; Certainly It Was Anything But A Commercial Cash-In, Given How Its Subject, French Singer/Songwriter Jacques Brel, Had Little More Than A Cult Following In The English-Speaking World, Most Notably Through Scott Walker's Various Cover Versions. Remaking Two Songs Done Earlier In His Solo Career, Concert Standby "If You Go Away" And "The Bulls," Almond Adds On Ten Other Songs, Whose Subject Matter Alone Is Testimony To Brel's Abilities With Lyrics Both Personal And Political. The Classic Willing Sinners Lineup Is Mostly Present Throughout (Martin Mccarrick's Abilities With The Accordion Especially Come To The Fore Here), With Plenty Of Orchestral Players As Well, Serving The Gallic Cabaret/Pop Tunes Well. The Most Striking Performances Include The Worker's Lament "The Lockman" And The Astoundingly Beautiful And Lush "The Town Fell Asleep," Certainly One His Best-Ever Recordings. In The End, Though, Singling Out Songs From This Remarkable Album Is Nearly Impossible; Without Any Question, It's An Out And Out Triumph.” – Ned Raggett, AMG... more details
