32) "The Mid-Morning Recording" Laurie
"Golden cities...golden towns" She is by far one of the most
thought provoking artists of the past 40 years. Inventive, creative
and tonight's album just scratches the surface. Anyone who knows me
knows that I really like Laurie Anderson. From my very first listen,
I could really understand her atmospheric qualities. I also noticed
the great storyteller she really is. The first thing I heard by her
was her box set 'United States Live Parts I-IV". Someone made a
cassette tape recording of it for me with the words, "Here, I think
you'll like this." I first heard it under headphones early one
morning at the beginning of the nineties, and it blew me away. I couldn't
believe someone decided on creating a concert that lasted two nights,
with two tickets, and two separate performances. The Warner Bros. recording
for 'United States Live' stems from a two night performance held at
the Brooklyn Academy in 1982, and gladly, I've already played it in
it's entirety over two weeks of MFL. I believe it to be her best and
most engaging work to date. It's so...big. Tonight's album is at its
core a selection of songs composed for the four parts of 'United States'.
I'm sure Warner Bros. wanted a studio album, but after a surprise hit,
they decided that they could put out a five LP set by her as well. Before
the box set, 'Big Science' merely showed the highlights, but it is a
great document in its own right. Since this CD has been re-released,
I figured it a good time to play it. This record is a good look back
on her beginnings. I respect her artistic abilities in every sense of
the word. She was even the very first, and to my knowledge the only,
artist-in-residence for NASA. How cool is that? You should check out
the Wiki page about 'United States Live' along with the links on that
page for a ton of information on this and all of her projects. Right
now you can go to her website www.laurieanderson.com and check out a
flash site dedicated to the re-release of this mornings' recording.
I also dedicate this recording to my hero John Peel, the first person
who played "O Superman" on the radio, and subsequently made
Laurie a star in the U.K.
