Hot on the heels of Dean Wareham‘s first solo release since 1992 (Emancipated Hearts released last month) comes the news that a full solo album will be released om Double Feature and Sonic Cathedral in March. The album was recorded with My Morning Jacket’s Jim James at his studio in Louisville last winter. The album will be self titled and will contains nine tracks. More details, tracklisting and pre-order information as soon as I have it.

Damon & Naomi's cover was released on their second album The Wondrous World of Damon & Naomi, in 1995. Here’s the version from the Bootleg Edition released for Record Store Day earlier this year
It’s that time of year again where you get to vote in the 19th A Head Full of Wishes. Vote for your favourite Galaxie 500, Luna, Damon & Naomi and Dean & Britta album and five tracks. One lucky voter will get a couple of 7″ singles – probably this one, this one, and the last one of these I’ll ever give away!
When I first put my database together a cursory bit of research didn’t reveal anything useful about the track “The Last Goodbye” – the sleeve told me it was by “Robbins” but I knew nothing more, so it went into my database as being “written by Robbins, originally by unknown” – in the 20 odd years since then Google got better and YouTube got made and it turns out that the song isn’t called “The Last Goodbye” at all but “The Beginning of Goodbye” although to be honest I know precious little more about the song.
This video on YouTube suggests it was recorded in 1971 but not released until much later…
Cagney and Lacee’s version, “The Last Goodbye” was released on their only album – Six Feet of Chain (which has already had one incorrectly named song in this series).
