Dec 2011 newsletter: Songbook v2

I'm thrilled to hear about a possible Vol 2 of the Songbook. Here some classics I'd like to hear given the treatment:  
 
You are the music
King of lights
The rider to the world’s end
Sunrise
Sunlight gate
No dice
The pearl-driller
The double agent
Shadow and the widower
The road of silk
My egoist
The pressure boys
Canoe
 
Season's greetings to all the boys and girls, the array of passionate CJ/PA lovers. Do we have an Xmas anthem, by the way?

(You are the music) while the music lasts.
That's one I'd really love to hear. Has Pete ever sung it in front of an audience?

I'm going to be really predictable:
 
Carnations on the Roof
 
and also
 
The Last Hill
Uncle Seabird
Rider from the Worlds End
The Man who walked toward the music
Sunlight Gate
I have to learn (even if it is perfect as it is)
Girl  on a train
All the dead
 
... and I'll leave space for other suggestions  Smiley

I've always thought 'The Magic Wasn't There' - in all its recorded versions - was a bit too slow. I'd like to hear an up-tempo version. Call me crazy, but it feels to me like a song that was never meant to a ballad.
 
'Shadow of the Widower' is another one that I think could be dramatically re-interpreted, even though I really like it the way it is. This one, I think, could actually be slowed aallll the way down, becoming a double-bass-led smoky bar-room song.
 
But that's the only two that spring to mind.
 
I think v2, ideally, would be a great album on which to pack in some previously unrecorded material.

I like your idea for The Shadow & The Widower hannibal that would make for an awesome version

My list:
   
"The Rider to the World's End"
"Tonight Your Love is Over"      
"All the Dead Were Strangers"              
"A King At Nightfall"      
"The Hollow and the Fluted Night"        
"The Man Who Walked Toward the Music"  
"The Road of Silk"      
"Rain Wheels"    
"Tenderfoot"  
"Secret Drinker"        
"Time and Time Again"      
"If I Had My Time Again"
"Winter Kept Us Warm"    
"Friendly island Song"  
 
Pete mentioned the possibility of "an album of the most recent unrecorded stuff," which sounds wonderful. I'd like to bring up the notion of an album of the oldest unavailable stuff as well. I can't vouch for the quality of those songs, since I haven't heard most of them, but many of the titles on "While the Music Lasts" and "The Party's Moving On" sound promising, and if the original albums can't be released or made available, re-recordings would do nicely. (A lot of the songs on the discography's list of unreleased songs look tantalizing as well.)

Songbook V2 - yes please!  Can I suggest Nothing Left To Say - a song that resonates deeply with me as I get older (well to be honest it resonated deeply when I was younger - I can't tell if it's resonating deeper now or just continuing to resonate as strongly! In other words: I don't think it's to do weith me I just think it's a great song) - and my memory tells me I have heard Pete play a great live version of it (but where? Must go and check the website   Smiley
and yes I've got to second (or third) the call for Shadow and the W - that would be great!
Good - Looking forward to this - you've got to do it now Pete Smiley

Nothing Left To Say doesn't get nearly enough love.
 
It could probably benefit from a new arrangement.
