NYCD: The Blog

Saturday, November 11, 2006


Thanks to the fine, kind, and patient people over at A DEEPER SHADE OF SOUL, NYCD-Online has now found a way, just like the 2 million other blogs (some run and created by 7 year olds) to offer our loyal readers a chance to listen to some truly wonderful music they may have missed.

First up, a track from one of our faves of the year, ELVIS COSTELLO & ALLEN TOUSSAINT'S "River In Reverse."

Those of you who bought the CD may be wondering, "Where the hell is this song? I don't see it on my copy." That's right. This was a bonus track on the Japanese pressings.

The pair performed this Toussaint-by-way-of- Lee Dorsey tune during their coinciding tour and it was a show-stopper. I can't begin to understand why certain songs get chosen over others for inclusion on a CD release. In most cases it's the artist's decision. But really, what has Japan ever done for Allen Toussaint to deserve this gem?
