Black Sorrows :: Endless Sleep

by

BlackSorrowsEndlessSleepCoverRootsy_coverThe Black Sorrows, die eind jaren 80 en beginjaren 90 wereldwijd triomfen vierden met hun stevige rootsy pop, beperkten zich de laatste jaren tot activiteiten in hun eigen Australië. Daar komt nu weer verandering in met Endless Sleep, hun nieuwe CD met veertien covers. De keuze van die nummers getuigt van een meer dan goede smaak. Lou Reed (Dirty Boulevard), Hank Williams (I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry), Mississippi Fred McDowell (61 Highway) en John Coltrane (Lonnie’s Lament), om er vier te noemen. Hun helden. De uitvoeringen zijn verrassend en eigen. Prachtplaat. En bij de prachtplaat zit een best of-CD bij: One More Time. Een dubbel feest.

Australian band the Black Sorrows is back with the brand new album »Endless Sleep«. A heartfelt 14 track album, celebrating the musical heroes that, in one way or another, helped shape the music of the Black Sorrows. We get beautiful versions of songs we usually associate with JJ Cale, Lou Reed, Warren Zevon, Blind Willie McTell, Eddie Hinton, Skip James, John Coltrane, Willie DeVille, Hank Williams and many more. But to say that the Black Sorrows »is back« is only true from a European perspective. After the success in the late eighties with the best selling albums »Hold On To Me« and »Harley & Rose«, they seemed to disappear. But back home in Australia, they been touring and recording all the time and with considerable success. The main reason they disappeared from the European radar was that singer, songwriter and band leader Joe Camilleri developed a bad case of fear of flying and prefered to stay in Australia. But thanks to KBT, or what ever it was, he’s now ready and able again and this summer will see the band touring in Europe.
