Amy looks the pic­ture of hap­pi­ness

Irish Independent - Farming - - RURAL LIFE -

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.
