29/10/20 – MARTY’S DAILY ALBUM PICKS

Music today came from Deutsche Grammophon, the legendary classical music label. It arrived in the post today and as I mentioned yesterday I was looking for something to compete with Kev wacking the drums on his mega kit in the next room – this wasn’t it.

The album is called Songs From The Labyrinth (2006) and features Bosnian lutenist Edin Karamazov. The album is the music by composer and lutenist John Dowland (1563–1626). The album has instrumental, spoken word and songs sung by Gordon Sumner, you may have heard of him.

What’s most fascinating is reading the comments of the purists that hate his interpretation. It’s not really about whether you like Sting or not, it’s cultures clash, other worlds cannot relate to each other. Like him or not, it’s surprising to hear these people refer to him as a terrible singer. I wonder how an essay about AC/DC might read written by these people? If they think Sting can’t sing I wonder what they’d make of Nick Cave.
