買完又買 (Part 2)

82 – 92 essence and rare
 
這是 Everything But The Girl (EBTG) 只在日本出版的精選,而且由 Cherry Red 在日本的代理 Toy’s Factory Records 推出,但當中 17 首歌中只有一首來自 Cherry Red,其他的是 EBTH 在 Blanco Y Negro / WEA 旗下推出的作品,真摸不著頭腦。

這張 82 – 92,不單止買完再買,其實是再再買。因為連手頭上這張,我已有 4 張。第一張是正價買,之後遇到便宜的見一次買一次 (便宜的定義是 30 元以內) 。
 
喜歡這張精選完全是它包括了我所有 EBTG 的至愛。Old Friends、Driving
I Don’t Want To Talk About ItCome On Home 等,都是恬靜,優美,清新,動人的。  Tracey Thorn 的歌聲,Ben Watt 的音樂,是完美的配合著。日本人揀歌真的一流。

 
它還包含了 B side 歌 Downtown Train,翻唱 Tom Waits 的,是 Ben Watt 跟 Tracey Thorn 合唱,訴說著 New York 夜間落寞的景象。
 
Outside another yellow moon
Has punched a hole in the nighttime, yes
I climb through the window and down to the street
I'm shining like a new dime
The downtown trains are full with all of those Brooklyn girls
They try so hard to break out of their little worlds
 
Well you wave your hand and they scatter like crows
They have nothing that will ever capture your heart
They're just thorns without the rose
Be careful of them in the dark
Oh, if I was the one you chose to be your only one
Oh baby can't you hear me now, can't you hear me now
 
Will I see you tonight on a downtown train
Every night it's just the same, you leave me lonely now
 
I know your window and I know it's late
I know your stairs and your doorway
I walk down your street and past your gate
I stand by the light at the four-way
You watch them as they fall, oh baby, they all have heart attacks
They stay at the carnival, but they'll never win you back
 
Will I see you tonight on a downtown train
Where every night, every night it's just the same, oh baby
Will I see you tonight on a downtown train
All of my dreams they fall like rain, oh baby on a downtown train
 
Will I see you tonight on a downtown train
Where every night, every night it's just the same, oh baby
Will I see you tonight on a downtown train
All of my dreams just fall like rain, all on a downtown train
All on a downtown train, all on a downtown train
All on a downtown train, a downtown train

EBTG 第一首 Single 就是 Night And Day,是首娓娓動人的作品:
 
Night and day, you are the one
Only you beneath the moon
Under the sun
 
Whether near to me or far
It's no matter, darlin', where you are
I think of you night and day
 
Night and day, why's it so
That this longing for you
Follows wherever I go
 
In the roaring traffic's boom
In the silence of my lonely room
I think of you night and day
 
Night and day, under the hide of me
There's an, ooh, such a hungry yearning
Burning inside of me
 
And this torment won't be through
Till you let me spend my life making love to you
Day and night, night and day

 
這晚上,我夢回那時我在 Ronnie Scott 看 EBTG 的演出。

Blind Faith

看 Music Week 不認識 Blind Faith抵打。Eric Clapton + Steve Winwood + Ginger Baker + Rich Grech 組成的超級樂隊。推出了一張同名大碟,它就是 Blues / Classic Rock 的經典。內裡的 Sea of JoyPresence Of The LordDo What You LikeCan’t Find My Way Home 等早已聽到爛熟。它的黑膠我有兩張CD 連手頭上這張有 3 張,其中一款是雙 CD 的 Deluxe Edition。


唱片的原裝封面是裸女揸飛機,後來可能因兒童色情 關係,換了一幅 4 人相片。CD 化後重新用回裸女封面,4 人相片的變得稀少了。

 
Blind Faith 的唱片都是屬於見一次買一次的,如果便宜的話。
