This album is absolutely stunning. Hussey's song writing has matured over the years so that now I find I prefer this and the last Mission album more than the original stuff I grew up with and loved. (Maybe I get old to and mature). If you are looking for something dark, romantic and chilled then this is perfect. I've long felt Wayne is one of the greatest but most overlooked songwriters of his (or any) generation. His best lyrical work stands up with the greats and this album has plenty of examples. Forget your preconceptions about what you think you might know about him and give this a listen. Truly a great album and it's get better every time you listen to it. Hopefully more will come from Mr Hussey as a solo performer.
Filmed & recorded at the final two shows of Wayne’s last autumn 50+ date tour at Leeds Trinity and Workington Carnegie the release sees two DVD’s, one each from both shows, along with an audio CD. All in all a massive 50+ songs (more than 5 hours!) along with interviews and other extra’s too! Included are such faves as: Wither On The Vine, Severina, Swan Song, The Bouquets & The Bows, Butterfly On A Wheel, & Wasteland, as well as a selection of Wayne’s suitably maverick cover versions such as Careless Whisper, Martha’s Harbour, & All Along The Watchtower!
2000 outing from Wayne Hussey & co., one of the biggest goth bands ever. Contains updated re-recordings of 18 of their biggest & best in the '80s & '90s, including 'Deliverance', 'Wasteland', 'Severina', 'The Crystal Ocean', 'Butterfly On A Wheel' and 'Love Me To Death'. "Resurrection" contains new tracks along with a new mix of the old 'classics', but much to my surprise, all of the tracks had been re-recorded. I listened through it and found some very enjoyable new interpretations, Like a Child Again & Butterfly on a Wheel stood out, but I would categorize most as just an interesting experiment by Wayne Hussey (the singer and songwriter).
Recorded in 1965 but not released until 1980, Et Cetera holds its own against the flurry of albums Wayne Shorter released during the mid-‘60s, a time when he was at the peak of his powers.
Mid-'80s release that established Horovitz among the prime composers and players on the contemporary improvising scene. He's not among either the traditionalists or the fusion/light jazz crowd, but is part of the New York "downtown" school that utilizes everything from hard bop to rock to contemporary classical. Guitarist Bill Frisell was also an important contributor to the date.
