Norway's golden voice,
This review is from: Wait By the Fire (Audio CD)
The best singer ever to come out of Norway has been on the solo path ever since his equally golden band Midnight Choir split up back in 2004.
His latest project is a tribute cd full of Chip Taylor songs. Approved by the great man himself who wrote the afterword in the booklet and even contributed a new song "This Darkest Day".
Paal has delved deeply in Chip's back catalogue but also recorded a brilliant version of the best known "Angel of the Morning".
The music sounds a lot like Midnight Choir. Lots of space, minimal backing which brings out the best in Flaata's voice.
Wait by the fire
He sits at my table
Angel of the morning
I can make it with you
If I stop loving you
You didn't get here last night
This darkest day
Perfect music for spending those dark cold winter nights by an open fire.
