- Paris 1919 by John Cale
8/10 Penrith Steve 1st November 2014
“Paris 1919” is perhaps John Cale’s most well known album and features Lowell George of Little Feat on guitar. You wouldn’t expect an avant-garde musician such as Cale to revel in the zeitgeist but it’s 1973 and if wants to do glam he’ll do glam “MacBeth” begins with the beating toms reminiscent of Suzi Quatro and keeps a glam stomp going throughout. The Dylan Thomas inspired “A Child’s Christmas In Wales” opens the album and melodically sounds similar to something from one of Brian Eno’s early 70s albums. The album’s highlight is “Andalucía”. The title track is also brilliant with its dramatic intro, superb melody and stabbing strings. For anyone wondering, John Cale’s solo output sounds absolutely nothing like The Velvet Underground. Good though.
