|Sun Mountain/Berry Town||Your Mother Wouldn't Like It|
|Lyrics to The Second Arrangement||Crossword|
In the October issue of Metal Leg I mentioned the existence of a Gaucho out-takes cassette containing half of a previously-unreleased track entitled The Second Arrangement. ... In addition to the aforementioned song, it includes Babylon Sisters, Gaucho, Glamor Profession and My Rival.
Once again Donald Fagen has an article in the January edition of Premiere magazine, this time dealing with a "charming barcarole" (a kind of song thta Venetian gondoliers sing!) from a Delibes opera called Lakme, which he finds irresistible. It's an entertaining, if brief, piece entitled "In The Throes of Lakmania," again written in Fagen's own distinctive style. It seems that he may have discovered a trend in that this particular song has appeared in no less than three separate films recently: firstly, "Tony Scott's kinky little picture" of a couple years ago, The Hunger, with Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon; secondly, the new Ridley Scott (Tony's brother) film Someone To Watch Over Me and finally a Canadian art film entitled I've Heard The Mermaids Singing. This man is obviously not only a Lakmaniac but a movie maniac, too!
Rosie Vela is recording her second album at the moment, but who knows whether or not our two exasperating, elusive idols will bother to show up this time.
