There was some talk on here a while ago about CO playing with a mini orchestra - I think Derek mentioned it but can't find the post, there was a thought that Careless Love may get a debut outing ?

Was there nay more news on this ?

Cheers !

yeah - a vid recording would be nice... altho it may show some incriminating dance moves by yours truly!! i'll have to stay back a bit! Wink ..but even a decent sound recording would be great especially if they play Suspended, Dont Do Crowds and World is Full o Strangers.. 7th heaven!

"careless love" was pure speculation on my part. but I believe I've heard carey say in the past that the only reason they don't play it live is because the strings are too important. we'll see. honestly, i kinda doubt they'll play it. but maybe. they definitely seem like they want to change up the sets when they play the same city a few times.

Ha. Well I'm really happy that for once I was right!

Don't take my advice on the lotto though. I never win. Ever.

oh... and I posted these on the other string, but I thought I'd share them again here. Just some pictures I took at the gig.

I went to one of those Neil Young / Wilco shows at Madison Square Garden a couple of years ago. It was awesome! And Neil Young did all of the classics in his set. "Cortez" was transplendant.

I gotta say... even though I do (obviously) take some pictures during shows, it was really nice going to a concert where you don't see little glowing boxes hovering over the crowd for the entire gig.

I mean... I'm sure even I get on people's nerves with my picture taking, but I try to limit it to during just a few songs. Especially if I'm in the middle of the crowd and it's really blocking someone else's view. Tweedy can be a bit of a hot-head (he's also been known to yell at audiences for not being engaged enough or not knowing the lyrics to "Jesus etc", stuff like that), but his heart is in the right place, I think. He just trying to get the vibe right.

And that show I saw in NJ in April was un-freaking-believable. They must have played a solid 3 hours, career-spanning, 2 Big star covers, full acoustic set in the middle set. I went with my girl who was sick as a dog at the time, and even she had a blast.

I'm curious if anyone has found a live recording of this show? june 7th 2010 at NYC ballroom.. i saw on a blog called NYCtaper that there was a couple of requests for recordings - was that you blurecu? i'd love to get a copy but all my searches have found zilch..
heck, i'd love to get the Love Language's recording too for that matter...

yes, that was me. I don't believe he taped it. I haven't seen a recording mentioned anywhere either. Sad

I'm hoping NYC Taper is able to tape the Belle & Sebestian NYC show next month.
