Postscript: Amy Winehouse – Lioness: Hidden Treasures

31. oktober 2011

Fotografiet ovenfor viser Amy Winehouse som meget ung i skoleuniform. Det er dengang, tatoveringerne, den outrerede udklædning og kemien endnu ikke havde fået overtaget. I dag ved vi, at Amy døde af alkoholforgiftning. En banal, forudsigelig og trist kendsgerning.

Og boet efter Winehouse har hurtigt været ude for at høste de postmortale frugter af frøken Winehouses’ kunstneriske udfoldelser. Om inden sÃ¥ længe kommer et album med efterladte indspilninger med de foreløbige titel: Lioness – Hidden Treasures. Og selv om man kan have sine kraftige forbehold over for nekrofil rovdrift, sÃ¥ lader det til, at der er interessante ting imellem. The Telegraph afslører følgende indhold:

1. OUR DAY WILL COME (Reggae Version): Re-working of classic 1960s doo-wop song produced by Salaam Remi Gibbs (better known as Salaam Remi) and recorded in May 2002.

2. BETWEEN THE CHEATS: Recorded in London in May 2008. Produced by Salaam Remi.

3. TEARS DRY: Original ballad version recorded in November 2005 in Miami with Salaam Remi. The later version appears on Back To Black.

4. WAKE UP ALONE: The first song recorded for the Back To Black sessions. This is the one-take demo recorded in March 2006 by Paul O’Duffy.

5. WILL YOU STILL LOVE ME TOMORROW: Version of the Carole King-written Shirelles classic. Produced by Mark Ronson and featuring the Dap Kings with string arrangements by Chris Elliott. Recorded in September 2004.

6. VALERIE: One of Amy’s jukebox favourites, the original slower tempo version of the Mark Ronson-produced post-Back To Black single. Recorded in December 2006.

7. LIKE SMOKE featuring Nas: Amy and American rapper Nas became friends after Amy name-checked the New York rapper on Back To Black’s Me & Mr Jones. Produced by Salaam Remi and recorded in May 2008.

8. THE GIRL FROM IPANEMA: The first song 18-year-old Amy sang when she went to Miami to record with Salaam Remi. Recorded in May 2002.

9. HALFTIME: Amy and Salaam Remi worked on Half-time since the Frank sessions. Recorded in August 2002.

10. BEST FRIENDS: Frank-era live set opener produced by Salaam Remi. Recorded in February 2003.

11. BODY & SOUL with Tony Bennett: Cover of 1930s jazz standard with Tony Bennett. Recorded at Abbey Road Studios London in March 2011 and produced by Phil Ramone.

12. A SONG FOR YOU: Heartbreaking and emotional version of the classic made famous by Donny Hathaway, Amy’s favourite artist. The song was recorded in the spring of 2009. Produced by Salaam Remi.
