Barry Adamson

Quite a few people mentioned The Man With The Golden Arm on RR this week, but I think I said on the blog that for me the Barry Adamson version is such a belter I find the original kind of pales by comparison. Dunno - maybe it's just one of those times when the first version you hear of a track will alway be the definitive one, whether it's a cover or not.






(I'm having the same problems as DsD with podbean titles, so TMWTGA is track 1 and the others are The Big Bamboozle (also nominated this week) and his entertaining jazzed up take on the Bond theme (someone really needs to get him to do a Bond soundtrack sometime))

Man With The Golden Arm was the first thing he did after leaving the Bad Seeds - 1988 maybe? The Bond theme is off Soul Murder which came out in the early 90s and The Big Bamboozle is from Oedipus Shcmoedipus, which was mid-90s
