  • On An Overgrown Path: Another UK record store closes every 2.7 days
    and I felt it was important that somebody should document the interesting and varied stories behind independent record shops Last Record Shop standing is essential reading and provides a priceless snapshot of the quirky and fast disappearing network of independent music retailers in the UK It is more lament for the past than action plan for the future which means successful initiatives such as Harmonia Mundi s record label owned stores and their merchandised presence in independent bookstores in France which could also work for ECM and other independent labels are not covered My photo above shows the Harmonia Mundi section in the independent Libraire Larcelet in Saint Dizier Also missing is coverage of the turmoil in the distributor wholesaler sector which is making it increasingly difficult for independent label s to get their CDs distributed to retail outlets Yes I know the death of the independent record store is part of progress and the endgame is online music distribution But as Lech Walesa once said it is easy to turn the aquarium into fish soup but it is more difficult to reverse the process Last Record Shop Standing should be compulsory reading for every record company executive and artist including Sting It was recommended to me as were many CDs found on the Path by Prelude still crazy about classical music after all these years Records in Norwich who epitomise everything that is great and valuable about independent record stores As does the one below After Prelude Records told me about Last Shop Standing I asked for a review copy from Proper Music Flattery will get you everywhere but I was touched when the book arrived with a hand written dedication from Graham Jones saying To Bob a true music man Middle and lower photos are c On An Overgrown Path 2009 Any copyrighted material on these pages is included as fair use for the purpose of study review or critical analysis only and will be removed at the request of copyright owner s Report broken links missing images and errors to overgrownpath at hotmail dot co dot uk Posted by Pliable at Thursday November 12 2009 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels bbc tv polydor prelude records simon cowell sony bmg sting syco x factor 3 comments Pliable said Email received There is no hope that such shows as X Factor and American Idol will ever produce someone worthwhile who will truly contribute to musical culture Are these shows ever going to find someone who can fathom Beethoven and Shostakovich and Sorabji or who can improvise like Thelonius Monk or who has even a hair fraction of Nick Drake s talent I doubt it Cheers David Cavlovic 6 54 pm Pliable said David for more than five years I have been championing the music of Nick Drake On An Overgrown Path http www overgrownpath com 2005 10 skin too few html Do you know you are the first reader to have

    the audience participating in the singing of two plainsong hymns The influence of both Bach s Passions and Britten s Church Parables are evident in Passion and Resurrection But despite being written for largely amateur forces the sung drama is much more about the future than the past The 85 minute work progresses from simple chant settings to the radiant finale which evokes Messiaen and uses Jonathan Harvey s signature technique of symmetrical inversion with mirrored harmonies radiating from a central bass axis Jonathan Harvey is better known today for his Buddhist sympathies but he says of the composition of Passion and Resurrection That was a wonderful period and the mystical Christ remains with me very much to this day The excellent commercial recording of the work seen below was made by the BBC with Sinfonia 21 and the BBC Singers conducted by Martin Neary and is available on the enterprising Sargasso label On a day when we must focus on making the past work for the future my links point to the Dresden Requiem for eleven young victims of allied bombing and an icon in the restored Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church in Berlin the Madonna of Stalingrad The white poppy symbolises the belief that there are better ways to resolve conflicts than killing strangers Read more here Header montage is c On An Overgrown Path 2009 The original photos together with a translation of the middle plaque can be seen here My copy of Jonathan Harvey s Passion and Resurrection was purchased online Report broken links missing images and errors to overgrownpath at hotmail dot co dot uk Posted by Pliable at Wednesday November 11 2009 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels 2nd air division usaaf armistice day audre lorde bbc tv benjamin britten buddhism france harry patch jonathan harvey martin neary usaaf 2 comments Pliable said The plaque at Créancey says they the USAAF pilot killed in the crash was flying a Spitfire I was not aware that the American airforce flew Spitfires But a search on the internet confirms that the British supplied a limited number of Spitfires to the USAAF for use in the European and Mediterranenan theatres of war Which explains the presence of one in central France in 1944 http www ww2incolor com us air force life 276 html Cue Walton s Spitfire Prelude and Fugue http www overgrownpath com 2007 05 elgar first of new html 8 24 am Pliable said There are some useful Jonathan Harvey samples here but not Passion and Resurrection http www musiquecontemporaine fr en search disp all query Harvey exp inl on exp aud on so ta 8 53 am Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Chance headlines Loading Search On An Overgrown Path Loading Blog Archive 2016 19 February 5 January 14 2015 196 December 21 November 9 October 23 September 24 August 13 July 25 June 12 May 12 April 17 March
