yeah... Felipe you're right... And it is also a pity he doesn't perform in Russia
is a pity that Daria!!!
I do not like the Brazilian musicians, hear some, I hear rock from the 60s like the beatles, animals etc. ..I think I was born in the wrong country!!!!
then you found the right site, Felipe and I share your point of view XD
Me too Alan does't play eaither in my country Croatia , I'm born in wrong country too :sad::sad::sad::sad:
don't worry guys, at least we all met here and we can understand each other's words and feelings that's great! Even if we live far far away from Great Britain and the 60's
As Donovan said, social network is the new sixties and I couldn't agree more
I'm glad I got aquainted with you through the forum. Good evening everyone.
PS. sorry for the flood
We are born in the wrong country milka!!!!
But I love talking to you, I feel very well here, making friends and talking about the work of Alan!!!!
that's the spirit
I read that Paulinho da Costa played percussion on the album "Rising Sun"and it looks that he is unknown here in Brazil!!!!
Unknown in Brazil! Well, that must be because he moved to the States and is so in demand as a session percussionist. For several years, if you wanted a Latin sound on your record and you were recording in Los Angeles, he was the man you wanted to hire. He has worked with everybody from Michael Jackson to Willie Nelson to Bob Dylan to B. B. King. I remember when "Rising Sun" came out it was considered quite a coup for Alan to have gotten Paulinho to work on his record.
he worked all his life in the U.S., one of the best percussionist I know!!!!
Hollyh,you know if Alan is going to launch a new cd?
The record industry is so crazy these days, it's really hard for an artist to get a new CD out there. Alan in particular seems to be too independent to play the record companies' game. I think that's why he has begun to release new music through his website, alanprice.co.uk or alanprice.com. Go on there and you should be able to download several tracks of new music. Perhaps those songs will never make it onto a CD, but this is the way to get it. I admire Alan for being so smart about using the internet to distribute his music.
Cool thnx for information @hollyh
thanks for the information hollyh!!!
I saw some music, just that I can not download, I think you need to buy!!I liked "the story" "better this time " " In Mexico " and "Jack Kerouac & Mr Toad"
I can't download it either- but I liked his remasterisation of 'Time and Tide' (apparently he took the original vocal line and added some new lines for this version).
Has anyone heard the 'Based on a true story' album yet?
Yes, I do think you need to buy these tracks to download them. (They're fairly cheap I think, maybe 70p?) But I think because Alan is selling these independently, he'll get a larger share of the money. Just think of it as a way to pay back Alan for all the pleasure he gives us.
Indeed Lullaby I have heard Based On a True Story. It's one of my favorite AP albums EVER!
Aww I really need to get my musical education up to date one of these days; there's just no other alternative, right?
how many children have alan?
"Based on a true story" is my favourite too ! it contains so much emotion !
I believe he has two daughters, from two different marriages. One is grown-up and the other is still a schoolgirl at home.
