true blue – dirty beaches (live)
Here´s a selection of the tracks, I played at the “saddest music in the world contest”@ roter salon as “the little dog cried” before the live acts played & after the concerts.
I haven´t recorded all of the songs of that night, just a selection of old blues, gospel, tangos combined with some recent ambient tracks, loner folk of the 60ies, gospel – all of them deadly sad until rodriguez´ends with: “i`m gonna laugh instead of crying – I am gonna live until I die” – cover photo by jlt (shot in stuttgart)
