I want to thank "ME," who hipped us to new music from John Cale in the chatbox. The 5 -track E.P. is out next week, but you can listen to it all now. If you're a fan, you will love this. Click on it. It is prime Cale.
Coincidence then, that I had been thinking about posting this song since last week. I go on these John Cale binges every couple of years or so, where I listen to nothing but. I hope everyone owns "Paris 1919." If you don't, it is time. It is a baroque pop necessity.
I love this track. Listening to the new Glen Campbell album, with its lush production, brought this track to mind. The horns and the strings seem perfectly "finished" to me. Beautiful stuff, me thinks.
