John Cale Song Of The Week - Dying On The Vine
FBC! continues with the "John Cale Song Of The Week" series, in anticipation of his September 30th concert at Royce Hall, where he will play the integral of the Paris 1919 record, and a medley of older and newer songs.
Today, Dying On The Vine, an interpretation he gave for a BBC TV program with Chrissie Hynde and Nick Cave. I particularly like this version, with the piano accompaniment going its merry, baroque way, accentuating the starkness of the lyrics. You can buy the song here, if you like it, and better yet, get yourself a ticket to Royce Hall (individual tickets on sale starting August 9)
