More Eden

Thanks to Adam for the above atmospheric picture from Eden. Another review of the Eden show, this time from never enough notes who seemed to enjoy the show abit more than the this is Cornwall reviewer did..

Doves have some hard work to do: When the gig was announced Mumford & Sons were still emerging and Doves, with their solid following and previous storming set at the Eden Sessions in 2002, were a steadfast finishing band. And although the crowd is still up for it when they take the stage, it is clear that many are Doves virgins.

The band grab the audience well to start; Jimi Goodwin’s memorable voice and the moody and atmospheric music is the perfect soundtrack for the sun setting over the stunning Eden Project scenery. The band have worked hard on this ‘greatest hits’ tour and put on a good show with dramatic visuals including some interesting videos, my favourite being the ‘hoodies’ filmed for Black and White Town. The band relies heavily on the crowd being right there with them and affectionately coining the audience ‘Edeonions’, Goodwin manages to gain friends in most of them, especially when he offers to pay any council fines if the sound techs cranked up the volume.

Check out the official Eden Sessions blog here, for a short review of Doves set & pictures.

A few of you have wrote in asking about the status of the Eden download. Latest from the Doves Live Store..

We are expecting final approval from the band very shortly, as soon as we have it we will ship the CD’s and downloads.

Finally, work has started on the Echoes In The Alleyway microsite. Expect a full launch sometime late August ready for the album to be made available at the site early October. I have already received 9 tracks for the album so far, the quality is fantastic. Some really talented artists involved. I’m sure you will enjoy their take on some of your favourite Doves tunes. Tracks not dared to be covered yet include.. The Fear, Pounding & Words.

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.
