Recorded live over 2 intimate acoustic shows on Monday 23 and Wednesday 25 November 2009 in the conservatory of Glasgow’s Brel Bar, Brel features acoustic performances of nearly every song from the Trashcan Sinatras’ most recent studio album, ‘In The Music’.

It includes 17 tracks in total with a further eight songs from the shows available on the US version of In The Music – but you’ve already got that one haven’t you?

It’s a great wee CD and is recorded like all live albums should be – without the annoying two second gap between each song. The only downside in my opinion is the lack of sleevenotes and pictures, similar to the Trashcans’ other live release, ‘Fez’.

Bloody recession!

Featuring 17 tracks, this CD of radio and other session performances was recorded during the 2009 ‘In The Music’ world tour.

The CD comes in a simple cardboard sleeve and includes at least one song from each of the band’s 5 studio albums, with the tracks split between acoustic and full band.

It also includes one unreleased song called ‘Stairs of New York’ – kind of a funny song about the band’s adventures in New York. The song was taken from the recent session they recorded for Daytrotter.

On The Edge…

…of world domination? Mmmm, perhaps not.

One of my earlier posts will give you all the info you need on the Westwood One Radio Networks.

This is another rare CD which includes the tracks ‘Iceberg’ and ‘Remember Phil’. The latter, as you well know, is in fact ‘Twisted And Bent’ – but when this acoustic session was recorded the song had no official title. It is introduced by Frank as a ‘world exclusive’ and is rather good.

Both tracks eventually appeared on the 7-inch vinyl bootleg which accompanied some copies of the Autopsy fanzine. More on both of these here and here.

One From The Vault

Westwood One is America’s No.1 Radio Network and in 1991 the Trashcans paid them a visit to record a live session.

The show – called The Vault – had 6 segments from different artists featuring a short intro and outro from the announcer and then a live song.

On this CD we have an excellent acoustic version of ‘Only Tongue Can Tell’ from their debut long player ‘Cake’. These CDs are extremely rare and hard to find radio shows with only a limited number made for radio stations that would play this type of music and stations that subscribed to the Westwood One radio network services.

Other artists on the show – which was broadcast in February 1997 – included Devo, Midnight Oil, Living Colour and eh, Culture Club.

Magic!

Featuring 15 acoustic tracks, this CD of radio session performances was recorded during the 2004-2005 ‘Weightlifting’ world tours.

The CD comes in a simple cardboard sleeve and includes at least one song from each of the band’s 5 studio albums, including two tracks from their recent long player ‘In The Music’.

It originally included two more songs from ‘Cake’, but these were omitted from the final cut. Booooo!
