Blue Water

Soundcheck at Hull gig

The first gig of best of doves tour will kick off tonight. At the soundcheck doves were playing ‘blue water’. This is gonna be an exciting gig!

Blue Water Live at the Manchester Ritz

Doves official youtube channel: Video of Doves performing Blue Water at the Manchester Ritz back in November 2000.

Also uploaded onto the channel is a 10 minute Doves album megamix.

XFM Manchester Interview

Andy Spoke to XFM Manchester’s Pete Mitchell on Sunday there. I managed to grab a wee minute of the interview (cheers to Slow Hands at Doves board for the heads up) which you can listen to here. The bit missing is basically just Andy talking about how somebody suggested they should revisit Blue Water for the Best Of. What you will hear is Andy talk about the origins of Andalucia and the band’s plans for the rest of the year.

You may have noticed with the previous blog post, we have a new author on the blog. A big thank you to Madeleine aka BlackEyedAngel at doves board for offering to help out during this busy time. Madeleine has the great advantage of being based in North West England, so will have access to articles like the one she posted about below that I do not over here! The fresh input is never a bad thing also, the blog will only benefit as a result.

To those who have asked about status of doves.net.. Not sure to be honest though I do know the site will have a fresh new look which should be going live any day now, so that may be why the site is down.

Hear Best Of Snippets

If you fancy hearing snippets from the Best Of.. Obviously you may have most of the tracks. But you can hear new tracks such as Blue Water & Drifter. Drifter sounds interesting, Blue Water sounds like it remains true to the version allot of us liked 9-10 years ago.

Visit the amazon.co.uk digital download store.

The amazon UK digital download page states a new release date of April 20th, which would appear to be the new release date in North America. I will find out if the UK date has been moved also.
