5.0 out of 5 stars Eric Andersen - The Cologne Concert 21 May 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"The Cologne Concert" is an outstanding live album by an artist who remains one of the few great cult musicians still to achieve the full recognition he deserves. I came to fully appreciate Eric Andersen's work through two of his excellent later albums, "Memory of the Future" and "Blue Rain". However, this live concert from 2010 is perhaps my favourite of all. Although live,it has all the qualities of a well-recorded studio album. Potential purchasers should not be put-off by the fact that there are only seven songs, since it has a running time of over forty minutes.

On the album, Andersen plays piano, guitar and harmonica, his wife Inge sings harmonies, and Michele Gazich plays violin. Piano and violin are the main instruments here, and they create an exquisite musical landscape for Andersen's voice, which to my ears has never sounded better. The album opens with an evocative new song "The Dance of Love and Death", and Andersen's poetic lyrics are on finest form. This is followed by a lengthy and hauntingly beautiful version of one of his great songs "Time Run Like a Freight Train". However, the piece de resistance is the new track "Deeper Into You", which is one of the most deeply-moving songs I've heard in recent years.

"Woman She Was Gentle" is given a similar treatment to Leonard Cohen's "Gypsy Wife", while Andersen's phrasing on "Salt On Your Skin" is not unlike Bob Dylan's on "Isis" (the comparisons to Cohen and Dylan are fully justified, and perfectly complimented by Inge Andersen's harmonies). Next comes a reworking of Andersen's classic song "Blue River", which I personally prefer sung here with his mature voice. The album ends with an original and highly effective treatment of Tom Paxton's song "The Last Thing On My Mind".

5.0 out of 5 stars Live Eric Andersen 1 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been a fan since the last sixties, had all his albums on vinyl at one time, and am enjoying everything reissued on cd. This is a short but very sweet late period concert (only 7 songs), but there are Djank-Fjeld-Andersen live bootlegs out there that continue the story. Great work from a master craftsman, still going strong.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Man of Power 24 July 2011
By Lee Armstrong - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Eric Andersen is one of my favorite folk artists, always poetic. This live set was recorded in March 2010 and is well worth seeking out, even as an import. Although there are only seven tracks on the disc, the songs go from four to eight minutes, so there is not a feeling of brevity for me. A new song "Dance of Love & Death" is a classic Andersen track with his voice low like a moan and his guitar joyful, "Sometimes it feels so beautiful to have you out of my sight; I can't say if it's love or hate; I can't say that I'm bored; Whatever it is baby, I don't care, I don't want you anymore." At just under nine minutes, Eric's "Time Run Like a Freight Train" is a tender, restless embrace with Michele Gazich's violin speaking emotional volumes, "My pockets, they are empty; There's so much on my mind; tonight run like a freight train, take me down the line." The six-minute "Sinking Deeper Into You" is a new Andersen love song about emotional rescue with Eric's vocals expressive and vulnerable, "I am not a man of power, I am not a man of wealth; My life line was your wisdom, I was rescued from myself; My faith was something stolen, you turned it into something new, I was saved & I was sinking, Now I'm sinking deeper into you." It is an aching and gorgeous folk track, deep & lovely. "Woman She Was Gentle" and "Salt On Your Skin" are given first class treatments with Eric's wife Inge giving the right touch of vocal support. His classic "Blue River" sounds as vibrant as it did in the 1970s. He closes by putting his stamp on Tom Paxton's classic song "Last Thing On My Mind." "The Cologne Concert" is a powerful effort from this master musician. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant singer/songwriter Live 21 Mar 2013
By Craig Price - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been a fan for 30 years and this live CD is sublime.
2 new tracks are brilliant and his live versions of classic songs are brilliant. His meagre backing works and this is just a treat to listen to.

Nothing Eric Andersen does dissapoints me. Totally underrated but much appreciated.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great live CD 15 April 2012
By M. Tarr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I picked up this CD the other night @ his concert; it was playing as the audience members took their seats before the show. As it turns out, he 'did' most of this set in his live show that night, w/ his wife Inge on backing vocals & his cousin Joyce on violin. I'm happy to report he's still in excellent voice after all his years on the music scene.
