Amy looks the picture of happiness
AN EXHIBITION of Amy Winehouse photographs is now running at the CHQ Building in Dublin until May 31.
This series of photography by Charles Moriarty is timeless and captures a remarkable period for one of music’s most significant figures.
The photographs are charming, but also heart-breaking when you see a young woman full of joy and excitement about life and her future in music. Sadly, despite achieving her potential as one of the music world’s great artists, Winehouse ( left) tragically passed away from alcohol poisoning in 2011 aged 27 as her personal life spiralled out of control.
DAMIEN Rice’s classic album, will be released on vinyl for the first time on June 1. The extended 16-track edition includes four additional recordings, ‘The Professor & La Fille Danse’, ‘Moody Mooday’, ‘Lonelily’ and ‘Woman Like Man’.
‘Prague’ and ‘Silent Night’ (featuring Lisa Hannigan) are also included. They were hidden bonus tracks after the album’s closing song, ‘Eskimo’.
originally released in the summer of 2002, was one of the last albums to build a true word-of-mouth following before widespread streaming.
The album turned Celbridge man Rice into a superstar, featuring hits like ‘The Blower’s Daughter’ in 2001, followed in 2002 by ‘Cannonball’ and ‘Volcano’. It also included many audience favourites and mainstays of Rice’s live set, notably ‘Delicate’ and ‘I Remember’.
It was his cousin, David Arnold, who gave Rice the eighttrack cassette recorder on which he recorded the album. Arnold has scored the music for five Bond movies.
