The Ship Song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rKlaV-9Vzsk. The only other album I have of his is Nocturama so I wonder if I am missing any particular 'must have' from Mr Cave.
Hi Diance I am so sorry to resurrect an old thread but Nick Cave is my all time favourite artist, just nudging LC into second spot so I hate to reply to you!

It seems you enjoy the more mellow Nick Cave music so I would suggest you listen to the albums The Boatman Calls and No More Shall We Part first. The try Murder Ballads and if you like something a little heavier, in my opinion Nick Caves masterpiece is Tender Prey. Let Love In is also great.

Hell, ALL the albums are great!

Thank you, songwriter, I have taken note of your suggestions. I think Mr Cave first came onto my radar when I was impressed with his covers, and his stage presence, at the Came So Far For Beauty Wilner tribute to LC in Dublin a few years back.I do need some more albums. Welcome to the forum.

Speaking of fine live performers, I have just sent for Mark Bego's biography of Billy Joel, and in anticipation have been working my way through his albums. At the mo I am on 52nd Street. Just found this live rendition of (the latter part of) Until the Night: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTdAxpBHv_E

Hi Kush,

Thanks for the post about Ravi Shankar. I own two Ravi Shankar CDs and the link prompts me to listen to one
of them again soon.

Hi Steven,

I downloaded 2 albums of Ravi Shankar recently and wanted to respond after listening to the second one above, London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Andre Previn. The music for both albums is composed by RS and is essentially the London orchestra playing Indian classical music plus sitar, a very unique and intriguing sound. These guys were making world music before the term came into existence. The tabla/percussion is replaced with drums/cymbals and is very prominent with a number of solos which is unusual in western classical music.
Preceding these is the historic album Ravi Shankar made with Yehudi Menuhin in the late 60s (West meets East) which is slightly different, it is more of an indian setting with Menuhin joining him on violin - a vinyl copy of it has been in my family forever. These 3 are a terrific set.

terrific solo from Menuhin on the first track of West meets East:

Hi Kush,

Thanks for the Menuhin link. Yes, it is terrific.

The two Ravi Shankar CDs I own are: Bridges: The Best of Ravi Shankar and The Ravi Shankar Collection:
Ragas & Talas. Just played both CDs; prefer the 2nd one by a wide margin.

Steven - I just checked out Ragas and Talas - will download it soon before the New Year. Thanks.

This piece is the 4th Movement:Raga Manj Khamaj from the Andre Previn album. Mind blowing stuff....
