Topic: Remake of ANDY

Joe posted a shot of a couple of guitars in a studio on his instagram today.
20th anniversary remake in progress with Kev. Redoing vocals and “ill advised guitar riffs”.
Geeze! Has it been that long?!
Power trio time?

Re: Remake of ANDY

I just read this on Joe's Instagram as well. A remake of ANDY!?!! FIX ill advised guitar riffs? The studio version of ANDY is one of the most perfect, no... it IS the most perfect blues album I own. How can you change what is already perfect? I honestly do not believe it could be improved upon.

Re: Remake of ANDY

Today, it’s a wrap. Resung the entire album ‘cause his voice is better. Said he owed it to Tom.
No release date yet.

Re: Remake of ANDY

Would be interesting to hear Dowd's reaction to the remake!

Joe = Joy

Re: Remake of ANDY

Just wondering.Could he record it live and make a new ANDY Live album?
Nah probably overkill.But I would bet on a song or two in future sets.

He might not be doing ANDY live however I heard that he is making an exact remake of this famous music video:

I know a lot of you like Cradle Rock, me not so much

But I live the volume swells in Pain and Sorrow

Re: Remake of ANDY

Just really hope we don't hear horns and backup singers on these tracks.

  I don’t think you have to worry on that one !! Got the impression it was just Joe by himself the n the studio

I'll stop worrying when it's released.... They can always add them without JB being in studio

Re: Remake of ANDY

I really like whirlwind's avatar which looks like it's from the Borderline. This further concerns me with the remake of the album since I remember when I watched it Joe clearly had trouble playing some of those great songs from ANDY. Of course I'll buy the remake if I possible can in any event but still.. I'm a little nervous for this release.

Re: Remake of ANDY

yeah its going to be interesting...my first concern when Joe talked about it earlier this year was...how do you "honor" the original by re-doing it?????
No doubts it will be good but I can't get past the why????
but Joe has his reasons surely.....I get it about the singing although I loved his voice all along even though I recognize how he has gotten better....idk...
anyway from his instagram post it kind of seemed like other than his vocals it would be minor changes?
I mean surely they aren't going to take out the guest spots on the thing.....
i have my stuff scattered all over but it will end up making ANDY the one disc I have the most versions of I think? cause I have like at least 3 different ANDYs...not different music but insert or disc ink / record label differences

Re: Remake of ANDY

On the other hand....was thinking about it more
maybe this is a great way to get some of the more recent fans into Joe's back catalog..... big_smile !!!!
Bonamastermindful!!!!!

oh and also i never understood why Joe re-did  Around the Bend other than what i remember him saying...he never liked the HTCT version. I like it better for the most part except Joe didn't. Maybe if i hadn't known the first first it would be different idk.

but yeah hmmm I am liking the idea of fans getting intro'd to these works they may not know of....I know SILT could be louder but I am hoping the fact that Joe doesn't like the disc or whatnot means he won't take the time to %*(* with it big_smile

but my little corny theory that Joe's music will join us all together in realizing we can have so much better things - his music as an example - than what the world more easily dishes up and we can positively change the world with the new found power from joyful noise....and/or bring more demand for BCC big_smile one or the other ....keeping the faith big_smile wink

Re: Remake of ANDY

We have Andy and Andy Live.

Will this be Andy2018

Well it would be ANDY 2019 Or ANDY HORNS

I suppose he has something that makes him want to rework it.Perhaps holeshot is on to something.

Re: Remake of ANDY

Maybe they just re-did the vocals, and will use the original sound tracks.

His voice is very pushed in the first handful of albums,

Re: Remake of ANDY

This could be summer thing he always does? A re-release and small tour? I'm intrigued for sure, and I've said before I wish he would stay away from horns but I'll buy it nonetheless even if they are there. I mean if I don't like it, I love the original!
