Portishead – Roseland NYC Live

I Wanna Taranna Pt. 6 BMV #6 Portishead – Roseland NYC Live

I sure do love me some Portishead. So, a live album with an orchestra? That’s a natural… Yes please! In all honesty, this is one I’ve meant to pick up for ages, so this time it was meant to be.

Now, if I read this all correctly (below), the CD is recorded at different dates, while the DVD is all from the Roseland. Why they named it Roseland if it wasn’t all from the Roseland (on the CD) is beyond me. Do I care, though? Nope.

Here are the details:

“Although the New York Philharmonic is credited as appearing in the video, none of the musicians are members of the Philharmonic, nor is the Philharmonic credited in the audio album.

Unlike the CD, all the tracks on the DVD were recorded at the Roseland Ballroom. The DVD version has a bonus elements section, containing the music videos for “Numb”, “Sour Times”, “All Mine”, “Over” and “Only You”, as well as short films “Road Trip” and “Wandering Star” and the Portishead movie To Kill a Dead Man.””(Wiki)

And how does it sound? Exactly as you’d expect – the orchestra fills out the sound, adding so many more layers to the songs. The arrangements are stellar, and with the turntable work of Andy Smith, it’s old Portishead made new again. 

Me, I loved it. Listening to Portishead always reminds me that is great beauty and power in slowing down, taking care and deliberation in things. Plug this one in and get your smooth groove on. Hell yeah.
