o.k then i'll review it.

Strange that no one else has, though i see the price has gone a bit bonkers. The first half of thios cd is St Giles at Cripplegate, the old church turned recording studio giving its name to the l.p ,features numbered orchestral pieces of haunting beauty , they will be familiar to anyone who knows what Jack bought to Neil Young tracks such as Expecting to fly,and also to followers of his often stunning soundtracks, though ultimately the music has more in common with Charles Ives than anybody else i can think of. Lovely

The second half of the disc is a collection of songs from a (why oh why?) junked solo album from the early seventies and consists of the kind of stuff that continues to hold a powerful sway over the likes of Sparklehorse and Mercury Rev . Particular standouts are Lower California, Who say what to who/ loneliest fool and Marie. Some tracks sound like wasted Beach boys numbers others like Song Cycle cast offs, jacks voice is very nice to hear finally, too bad there isnt too much more of this kind of stuff in his cannon, still cant believe it was shelved.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rare Collection of Prime Jack Nitzsche! 5 Sept. 2007
By B. Parker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I can't stand something I own not having a review or info under it. For those looking, this CD is made up of three things - the complete "St. Giles Cripplegate" album, the assembled but unreleased album "Jack Nitzsche", and a few demos. This was printed by Rhino Handmade in a limited run of 3000 copies and is now out of print.
Now, if you're getting into Jack Nitzsche, you're either working from his 60's production stuff on forward, or you've heard what he's done with Neil Young and are working backward. If you're a Neil Young fan, this disc will be immediately accessible because the "St. Giles" material directly recalls the work Jack did on Neil's "Harvest" album.
Now, the "St. Giles Cripplegate" album is one thing everyone should own, whether on this disc, or on it's own release (which it does have now). An achingly beautiful album. It's no suprise Jack got into movie scoring. The creeping paranoia of "#6", the almost triumphant drumbeat emerging in the middle of "#2". This is orchestral music that doesn't quite fit in with any mold, but is all the more great to listen to for that. Jack really was a unique guy to be bouncing through the 60's and 70's.
I don't know why the "Jack Nitzsche" album was shelved at the time. It seems like something people would've bought in the mid-70s. Maybe the record company thought the mixture of rollicking piano blues with orchestral ballads was too much. I don't know. There are lovely songs here: "Sleeping Daughter" and "I'm the Loneliest Fool" in particular. Jack's vocal technique might not be stellar, but I think it suffices (c'mon, he wasn't the only deadpan singer in the 70's).
The last 4 demo songs sound great and fit in with the rest of the CD pretty well. Jack was really a visionary. He made a link in his music between the emotional ache of an orchestra with the pedal-steel-and-piano loneliness of rock and roll.

With this and his two other collections (The Jack Nitzsche Story - Hearing is Believing: 1962 - 1979 & Hard Workin' Man - The Jack Nitzsche Story Volume2) you have a marvelously complete best of.
