Thanks to John for sending in the above video of Doves performing the rarely heard The Man Who Told Everything in Bradford. Whilst the video is not the best you will ever see, the audio is excellent. Cheers John! Good to hear this one done live again.
Whilst I’m at it.. check out this cover version of the same track. Very cool!
This reminds of a conversation I had in the UK, somebody suggested that maybe we should put together an album of Doves covers done by fans. So if you think you would be interested in doing a Doves cover then let me know. It would not be for profit.. Either it would be a free download album or I could look into possibly going in with a charity where we could put up a donation link so any money goes straight to them. So if there is any interest, give me a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org You don’t need to submit anything right away, just let me know if you would like to submit a track for the lp. Then we can look into deadline and all that stuff asuming there is enough songs..
PS: My favourite fan cover of any song: The Who’s BabaO’Riley on piano.
It is Thanksgiving here in the US tomorrow, whilst means nothing to me personally being a brit here, any excuse to eat & drink loads is fine by me. So to get with the thanksgiving mood, here is a gift to you all as a thanks for all the support since I started the blog back in Febuary. The most requested live track I get is for The Man Who Told Everything. With Thanks to Haruto, I can share this video from the wee tour of Japan doves did back in early 2003.
You can also check out versions of Spaceface (amazing!) & Words from the same show at our youtube channel. Keep checking the channel for more video from the show.
Cheers! Have a good one tomorrow if your in the US, or an expat American elsewhere in the world.
