about

Hardly any live performances of Louis Philippe have been committed to disc over the three and a half decades of his career, an exception being a version of ‘Domenica’ featured on Trattoria’s luxurious ‘No. 100’ commemoration box-set. As he’s never been the world’s most intensive gigger, many fans have very little idea of how his ‘baroque pop’ can sound in a concert hall or a club environment. This double-album provides as faithful a picture as could be hoped of what most of them have missed over the years. Recorded on 22 and 23 April 2005 at London's Bush Hall and on 18 May 2005 in Bremen's Sendesaal (together with a couple of tracks taken from an earlier - 13 January 2001 -, and noisier gig at the Spitz, London), this collection shows Louis Philippe’s delicate songs, as well as some Francis Poulenc mélodies, and covers of Brian Wilson’s ‘I Wasn’t Made for these Times’ and Paddy McAloon’s ‘Nightingales’, in a quasi-chamber setting, accompanied by the piano and double-bass of Danny Manners, as well as the guitar and the flute of David Longdon. Three performances in total were recorded, out of which this selection was made, which covers songs written by Louis Philippe from his él days to what was his latest album at the time, ‘The Wonder Of It All’. This double-album also includes three performances recorded live for a special broadcast by German Radio 4 station.
