If you read my last two posts you probably guessed where I was going.
David Sylvian & Ryuichi Sakamoto – Forbidden Colours
Or as it says on the sleeve: “The vocal version of the theme from the film Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence.” Brilliant!
David Sylvian – Silver Moon
My favourite track from the 1986 Gone To Earth album. The line-up for this track is pretty impressive:
David Sylvian – vocals, keyboards, guitar
Steve Jansen – drums
Ian Maidman – bass
Bill Nelson – guitars
Robert Fripp – solo guitar, frippertronics
B.J. Cole – pedal steel guitar
Mel Collins – soprano sax
I lost track of David Sylvian’s solo career after this but he has released several critically acclaimed albums available here.
Ryuichi Sakamoto also has a large back catalogue available here.
