The Late Great Daniel Johnston: Discovered Covered is a 2004 Gammon Records two-disc set. The first disc features covers of Daniel Johnston songs by a variety of different artists. The second disc features the original versions of these eighteen songs, as well as "Rock This Town", a previously unreleased Johnston track.
For Becoming Jane, Adrian Johnston delivers an elegant score that perfectly captures the poignant and bittersweet, utterly romantic tone of the film. Johnston was given permission to study the surviving music books that once belonged to the Austen family in preparation for scoring the film, and that study shows. By weaving music from the period throughout the score, he gives this highly speculative "biopic" a genuinely authentic feel. Particularly notable is the inclusion of themes from "The Irishman" in the tracks "Bond Street Airs" and "A Letter." Also noteworthy are the tracks "The Basingstoke Assembly," featuring "The Recruiting Officer," and "Laverton Fair," featuring "Softly good Tummas" - both pieces of source music by Kynaston/Walsh and arranged by Johnston sparkle with energy. Track after track of the score features cues of music positively dripping with the sound of delicate strings and exquisite piano solos. This is music to think, to read, to write, to DREAM by - it encourages a quiet, reflective mood (perfectly suited to curling up with one of Austen's novels and a cup of tea).
"Founded 1984 in New York, Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys recorded A Subtle Plague's first demo. (…) The brothers Simmersbach, Analucia DaSilva, Pat Ryan and changing drummers achieved wide notoriety as one of the best live bands in the U.S. underground (…) Their communal way of touring and devoted fans led to Germany's Rolling Stone magazine calling A Subtle Plague "the Grateful Dead of the '90s"…" ~wikipedia
