What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

WAKEMAN, Rick - Crimes of Passion (OST) - Belgian review translated


WAKEMAN, Rick - Crimes of Passion (OST)
/ published on 26-01-2018 /

Crimes of PassionHolala hat, there are labels crazy enough to dig up such things. Who remembers Crimes of Passion  ? Not Pat Benatar's album of the same name, but Ken Russell's film (RIP), in VF  : Days and Nights of China Blue , with Kathleen Turner and Anthony Perkins(RIP), released in 1984  ? Who did not fantasize about Kathleen Turner in her adolescence and even later  ?

The music of this strange cinematographic object was entrusted to Rick Wakeman, who self-produced this album, a reissue that comes to us in full CD, jewel case and booklet as it should be, where we learn that the director was very involved in the writing of music. Unfortunately, the cinema did not give thanks to Ken Russell who ends his career in oblivion. It is therefore one of the hidden virtues of this CD, which is musically a little dated, but paradoxically, makes you want to rediscover the work of this director and the discography of ultra-prolific Rick Wakeman.
