Title: Accoustic Sessions Vol 1
Post by: Alan on October 07, 2013, 11:03:30 AM
I'm intrigued by the new studio acoustic album - something I've heard called for many times!

So how does it compare to the 'originals' and more to the point what's the track listing?!

I've ordered it.
Can't find any details of track listing but that's nice 'cause it'll be a surprise. :)

Yeah, I'm not gonna spoil your surprise!  :)
Only so much: for those of us who were at EB it is nice that there's some songs he played, e.g. The Newshound and Walk Away!
Other tracks are bit like a "best of" with a few surprises.  8)
Versions are as you are used to from the live gigs, some maybe a bit slower.

This is the kind of album I'd wished for since 1999, when I first saw TV live. (Ok, we got some "bootlegs" and official live albums since then, but back in 2000/1 I was really wishing for something like this...)

With the setlist he made a good choice.  :-X

No, I'm not surprised about J. Caffery as the producer. Especially as I did read this on Friday already, on the poster TV put next to the CD at EB:

(Btw, J. Caffery may have done a bad job on some re-masters, he did a VERY good job on producing "Useless-The Very Best Of..." and on many DTH albums - just don't mention the loudness wars...)  :)

Great review!

To answer your question 1: that's because TV licensed his releases to various labels since then (Boss Tuneage, Drumming Monkey...)!  8)

Great album. Good one to give to people who don't know about TV.  8)

Superb album. Would have said earlier but for the 'technical difficulties'.  ;D

Sound move by TV Smith.

The new Mike Peters.  ;D

Really enjoying this second play.

Not A Bad Day brought a nostalgic tear to my eye.

Like having TV Smith in my dining room. Like I have done many times.

Ooer missus!

Ask anyone who knows me who my favourite singer songwriter is and they will shout "TV Smith" before the question is finished.

This acoustic albums for the past, present and the future.

A thank you from TV Smith to all his fans and musicians.

Thank you to TV Smith from all his raving fans and gifted musicians.

Thank you Teev.

This album makes me smile and cry happy tears.

Love that it doesn't say 1 of 2.

Personally I'm looking forward to Volume 12 which will be packed full of rare classics.  :)

Been looking at the song per album stats. Not too surprising to see TV Smith Crossing The Red Sea like A March of The Giant he is.

"TV Smith - A Legend." Richard Strange.

Interesting how much I'm playing this acoustic gem.

At one point I thought I might just play it a couple of times like TV Live.

I can see Acoustic Volume 1 becoming one of TV's best selling albums.

The Lord's Prayer may have just slipped the net, but rest assured this new album is truly all Killers with no fillers.

Love it! 8)

After the "Useless" DTH version, the Cheap versions (incl. remastered & live) and various live versions plus the demo version (released on "Lucky Us"), I gotta admit I do not miss "Lords Prayer" at all on this album!  :o

This album sounds just great, TV and his guitar, performing a "best of" kind of collection of songs. Can't imagine it being any better (at least at this moment in time)!  :D

Just read the Goldmine interview.

"We Want The World" Dave? I think TV has conquered it already.  ;D

Welcome home from Russia with Love real soon Teev.

Interview? Must've missed that. Or did you mean "review"?  ???

Review. My most humble apologies Uli.

Still loving listening to AV1.

Me and C5 used to have lots of TV fun on the forum playing games and making lists, so here's one for Backstage Dave...

What title would you give to Acoustic Volume 1?

I'll give you a clue to my nickname for the album. Like Missinformation Overload and Sparkle In The Mud it's from a line in a TV Smith song. My nickname title is from a song on AV1.

Just for fun kiddies.

"Live for Today" C5 aka Backstage Bob aka Dave Allen (Superstar recording artist)

Post by: Uli on October 26, 2013, 03:11:58 PM
"Walk Away" (hm, maybe not the ideal title, as we don't want potential buyers to do just that...)  ;)
Title: Re: Accoustic Sessions Vol 1
Post by: Gabumon on October 27, 2013, 03:18:20 AM
"Why can't you just leave me alone? - Walk Away!"  ;D
Title: Re: Accoustic Sessions Vol 1
Post by: Tj on October 27, 2013, 02:21:42 PM
Ha! Walk Away he's Useless.

The two very best of TV Smith albums.  ;D ;D  ;D

Any other titles TUTS?

Just for fun. :)
Title: Re: Accoustic Sessions Vol 1
Post by: Tj on November 05, 2013, 11:05:24 AM
Just in case you think I've forgotten, my own personal chosen song title for Acoustic Volume 1 is The Light on The Horizon.

Who is?

TV Smith is.

Lean towards the light TUTS.  8)

Great album. Good one to give to people who don't know about TV.

Well I did just that. An old mate of mine was ill and couldn't do much but watching telly or reading (both of which he didn't want to do all day), so I gave him a few cd's to listen to, incl. this one! He knew a bit about TV of course (from me, of course), but didn't know many songs. He was very impressed by the "Acoustic Sessions Vol. 1"!  8)

It is a way better "Best Of" then the Useless in my optionion, i hope there will be a second volume too

Yeah, it's a real good choice of songs! And the acoustic way they are performed is 100% TV of course.  8)
I am currently very happy with this one plus the new album!  :)
