Rain Dog Origins: Jesus' Blood Never Failed Me Yet (Bryars) (22) RE: Origins: Jesus' Blood Never Failed Me Yet (Bryars) 28 Feb 14


In my post of 29 Jan 09 - 12:59 PM, I posted a link to a piece that Gavin Bryars has written about recording the Waits vocal,of which the following is an extract:

"I would say that spending the afternoon in that studio with Tom was as beautiful a musical experience as I can remember. I have a video with Tom and myself talking about the piece (a film crew arrived, in spite of my clear instructions to the contrary, from the record company later that evening - I look quite uncomfortable) and he is very eloquent about the piece and about his first hearing the music over the radio at the end of a birthday party for his wife. He talks about the place being littered with balloons and confetti and they were just sitting quietly. He describes the music as settling like a dust on the evening and they just listened to the whole piece, holding hands...."

Some (if not all) of that video can be seen here:
