logging my predilections on a virtual shirtsleeve since jean jacket patches went out of style.
Were you always like “I LIKE Psycho Killer by Talking Heads, but I just wish it had some more ominous cello playing in it”? Well, you’re in luck! Here is an outtake version of Psycho Killer featuring Arthur Russell playing cello and it is really, really good.
This is fantastic; not sure why it wasn’t included on the rerelease of ‘77. In addition to what can only be called “rock cello,” it features the better non-album second verse, and a better-sounding high-hat ride during the French-language bridge. Thanks, Fernie, for directing me to this. Amazing.
