(May 7, 2019): Mansfield.TYA – Un Chant D’Amour (Ciné-Concert / Jean Genet)

From the 2006 album, Fuck (Téona ‎– TEO 206 (France)). Carla Pallone and Julia Lanoë are a duo from Nantes. Despite the title of the song, this is the one of the first things I went to when I learned Notre Dame had burned. The title of the album was obviously apropos. There is meloncholy and sadness here. The first six of the eight tracks on the LP were recorded for a “cine-concert” in 2004, presenting “Un chant d’amour” from Jean Genet.

(May 6, 2019): Painter – Going Down The Road

K-SHE Classic. From the 1973 self-title album, Painter (Elektra ‎– EKS – 75071). This Danny sweetmeatLowe band from Edmonton would move to Seattle and sign with Elecktra for this debut LP. After the follow up fizzled and Electrak dropped them, they changed lineup and name to Hammersmith in 1974. “West Coast Woman” was a top 20 hit off this LP. I can recall recording the enitire album on the K-SHE the Seventh Day program when I was 13. I still have the Memorex cassette, though it is missing the pressure pad.
