This photo by Julia Gorton popped up on Facebook yesterday, and I hadn't thought about it for some time. Eno seems to be looking at the camera and thinking, "Hmm...maybe I should put together a compilation called No New York..." And who knows...Perhaps this was snapped the evening that idea was born?
As James makes his way across western Europe, our friends at Bedazzled have shared this nice little collection of four songs by James White & The Blacks, taped live back in May of 1980. Note the gorgeous pink satin jacket James is sporting!
Our friends at the ROIR label are offering a 10 track compilation for free download for Valentines Day. It includes James' "Melt Yourself Down" from the Lost Chancealbum as well as many other like-minded favorites...Grab it here.
A rather noir-ish shot of James at the keyboard last night at the 206 Lounge gig on Sullivan Street. His European tour starts on Feb 14. See all of the dates here. Check out James' story on his favorite film noir movies over at Perfect Sound Forever. Thanks to Emma Z. for the shot.
