Myself, I have only seen and then bought the Sony import _Chansons des Mers
Froides_  which contains the wonderous postcards (which BTW are written in
French), but we here in Canada cannot be too choosy. Sometimes we are
not privilaged enough to get a domestic release at all - like _Shimmering Warm
and Bright_ by Bel Canto just as an example.  Has anyone purchased the Zazou
CD with the booklet?  Please let me know what it is like (the booklet
that is.  I'm assuming that the musical works are the same).

Huh? Are we talking here about 'Long Distance Runaround'? That's the extra
(vocal) track on the vinyl 2x10" (also available on the 'Joe Friday' 7", by
the way). It doesn't sound like a dreary jam session at all.

My mistake.  I was working from memory, and thought there were only
3 Peel tracks.

What ever happened to the obvious connection to Jean Cocteau, a french dream researcher? I don't remember when he did his work, but apparantly his work is well known in the field. Hopefully I won't get too many "go buy it" recommendations here, cause I am on a severe austerity program. Matthew

I have some news for you, at last!

As some of you know, Bel Canto has finally signed a contract. They
decided to go for Atlantic Records on a new label, "Lava", which
evidently was created for Atlantic's most popular artist, Jason Flom
(never heard of him, what's he like?). The label won't have any
special profile, though.

The record will be released in September in Europe, but not until
January in the States. They don't want to rush it, they need to have
some marketing in place first. Considering Anneli is due to bear her
child in August, it's not surprising they have had to change their
plans. The Japanese tour in the autumn had to be cancelled, for one
thing.

The good news is that it is rather likely they will be playing in the
States coinciding with the release of the album. Nothing's set yet,
though.

I finally picked up the phone and called their manager, you see. I was
prompted to do that by TONO, the organization in Norway which collects
money from TV and radio shows, dJs and so on. They called the
University and wanted money for the Bel Canto songs they kept at their
FTP server. The administration thought it was funny, but I had to call
the manager to see where we stood legally. Well, to cut the story
short, he thought it was swell to have a web page and a mailing list,
so he took responsibility for the material. I'm very happy about that

Hopefully, I can provide more timely information in the future, as we
will be keeping in touch.

The booklet is all in english. Its actually a 6-panel folded piece, not
really a booklet at all, and I suspect, though I haven't seen the graphics
on the postcard version of the release, that the graphics are probably
similar, but definately not done as nicely on this version. The inside is
black and white, the outside is full color. Each song is featured, one or
two to a panel, with a photograph of the singer, credit information for the
song, descriptions of some of the artists. IMHO the design is nice, but
probably not AS nice, and not very original.

so there you go, that's my brief little review of the HZ cover.

BTW, any good reason for the low traffic on this list lately besides the
nice weather...?

Huh!? Who? This is the same Atlantic that handles Led Zeppelin, right?

 sorry ... but I am positive that this track is not on my CD . The
 accoustic thingy at the end is not "the" extra track ...

> Has anyone heard the RHP song included on the soundtrack to a movie coming
> out soon (i forgot the damn title)?

Are you thinking of the Amateur? The RHP song on the soundtrack is "Japanese
to English" It's a pretty good soundtrack, more even than most, though most
(all?) of the songs are previously released. Other highlights include PJ
Harvey "Water" and MBV "Only Shallow", plus Yo La Tengo, Liz Phair, Bettie
Serveert, Pavement and the Jesus Lizard. Available on Matador, as if you
couldn't have guessed. There are also some compositions at the end by
the film's writer/director Hal Hartley.

As a film, it's good, though not as strong as some of his earlier movies. I
highly recommend renting either "Trust" or "Simple Men". There was a whole Hal
Hartley thread here a few months ago, but I forgot to save it. Does anyone
know if he's done anything else besides the above two and "The Unbelievable
Truth" ?
