I've just pre-ordered (yes even the players have to buy their own product these days!!!) and can I just say that Domino's web site doesn't work very well in Internet Explorer 11 or Chrome (version 34 !!!).
As Limmy would say 'shocking'.
If I get a complimentary copy now I'll get everyone on the album to sign the one I've bought and auction it off at the next Fence event :-)

Post by: Mothernature on Mon, Jun 23, 2014, 11:21 AM
This was SO lovely. I was captivated. I loved the bits of conversation in it as well. Really nice to hear voices and sounds, the birds, children, bits of accordion etc. The music just worked so well with the images. Didn't sound over-produced. Favourite girl gets me every blinking time  :'(

This more than makes up for my experience last weekend. I spent the weekend in Crail for the food festival and also lured by the prospect of 'local musicians' playing in the Marine Hotel on Saturday night. The pop-up bistro there was great, good red pepper terrine and lots of Edinburgh gin etc But first the raffle tickets. Quick glance around I noticed I may have been the only person not wearing a golf sweater. More gin. Finally the local musicians. The male version of Margarita Pracatan. Not quite what I had in mind but a good laugh anyway  :)

If you're talking about the vertically moving shot which just keeps going up forever till it's above the top deck, I think the cameraman must have been in a bucket being hauled up by the crane.  Great stuff.

The footage from the evacuation of St Kilda was particularly sad.  Something so precious was cast away there.  I was stormbound on the Irish equivalent of St Kilda one winter years ago for about 2 weeks - it was a magnificent and otherworldly experience.  They werent as remote as St Kilda and managed to tough it out till electicity came and saved them.  A diesel generator on St Kilda and they could still have been there.  Ach well.

I loved the shot of the man dancing with the child on the deck of a steamer.  Just beautiful.

So just remember to duck when they start throwing those accolades. Some of them can be heavy. Those wee bafta faces? Weigh a ton.

Anyway, the main point of that film was that you worked your balls off all week, for the men in mainly unpleasant heavy industrial jobs, and at the weekend you unwound with a few pints and a dance and maybe a kiss and a cuddle at the end of the night. Plus you had a week or two doon the watter. That was the reality for our parents or grandparents. It was a tough tough life but they took it on the chin and got on with it without bitterness . I think the woman at  the end looking at the sky with the trains passing below symbolises the hope for something better.
Just sayin.

Good stuff! Keith's mum loved it, too. We recommended it to my mum and stepdad, but they're too much of folk purists to have recorded it .... I watched it for the first time tonight after being pretty ill for a while. Oh my goodness. I'm not ashamed to say Keith and I were greeting like bairns at bits of it. See when the Doogie Paul song came on? WAHHH! Anyway, we've decided that we're going to take my mum hostage and make her watch it. I KNOW she'll love it. To be continued ...

I have both... and the DVD arrived today.. the hat-trick! Re the two tracks - Largs and Leaf Piece - they are shorter on vinyl. I think it's to make the CD buyers feel less bad given that the vinyl fans get extra tracks ;-)

According to the DVD box it's Sound: 5.1 - who knew?

Just started side 2.  I'm liking this.  It's a bit disappointing that Largs and Leaf Piece are shorter on the vinyl, as they could have fit reasonably well - maybe it was too detrimental to the sound to get around 22/23 mins on one side?  Presumably the download has the longer versions.

I'm looking forward to the new version of 6,7,8.

(Last time I read Domino's download terms and conditions they seemed to be written so poorly that they couldn't actually be binding, if tested, as they had no cancellation clauses, and tried to be frighteningly strict!)

Title: Re: From Scotland With Love
Post by: kwaing on Wed, Jul 23, 2014, 13:05 PM
To squeeze more than 18 or so minutes of music per side on 12" vinyl, the grooves become narrower and so the stereo depth has to be reduced. Also, the bass tends to make the needle jump grooves, and so a long record tends to be quieter and bass light. Since the longer versions of the tracks mentioned above have quiet intros and outros, there's always a concern that the music might get lost in the crackle.

We - okay, I - decided on having more, shorter tracks. The idea of the double LP came later, and the original CD album didn't have "a prairie tale". I personally hope the downloads contain some crazy new virus that destroys iPods, but that's just me being " militant"  ;)

We're all amazed and delighted at the response FSWL has had, so thanks one and all for your kind words!
Title: Re: From Scotland With Love

Just listened to it for about the 20th time so far, both download and vinyl. Easily my album of the year so far. Looking forward to 3 on this island at some point but I think I'll have to lower my expectations as can't see it being in the same league as FSWL.

Since the longer versions of the tracks mentioned above have quiet intros and outros, there's always a concern that the music might get lost in the crackle.

So if you get 18 minutes good quality from a 12" vinyl, that means you get 1.5 minutes per inch of vinyl.  So to get 22 minutes you would simply need your record to be 14.5 inches.  What's the problem?    Your associated company Domino Pizzas does it.  Think supersize.  How about 24"?

Just trying to help.

The album is stunning. The vinyl sounds superb. I watched the film agaian on Monday night and have listened several times on my Ipod (no nasty virus - sorry Kwaing). The album fully deserves all the accolades it is getting.

Just listened to it for about the 20th time so far, both download and vinyl. Easily my album of the year so far. Looking forward to 3 on this island at some point but I think I'll have to lower my expectations as can't see it being in the same league as FSWL.
You don't need to lower your expectations :)

Definitely looking forward to it then. Problem is I can't get it until it goes on-sale in Mull or hopefully the Bunfight.

ok so i cracked and watched the film. what a lovely surprise to hear extra songs in there (the original 678, My Favourite Girl and Carry on Dancing).  brilliant stuff.

i have a question though, Kenny - willl a double CD be released with ALL the music from the soundtrack at some point? Was going to buy the CD for my Mum but I know she will be disappointed that those 3 tracks arent on it... Its alright for me as I have them on other albums...

what album is the original prairie
tale on? i thought 'something to
believe in' used to be 'a feeling'?
maybe naws.

Track 11 on Stinks. Synth based, rather than accordian, and lots of reverb on the vocals. Wouldn't be out of place on the Local Hero Soundtrack - that's a compliment, not a criticism.

The double vinyl album has MP3 codes so she could listen to them that way?

Just saw the Opening Ceremony. Seeing as how you're a Commonwealth event next Thursday, do you have to wear that lovely tartan? (Fruit salad chews anyone?)

Oh, and I hope you get microphones that work unlike poor Gordon Matheson (eejit!)

Dear Kwaing

Since you recorded the album, and have bought the DVD, would you be able to tell me if the 5.1 is its own mix, or an upmix?

Many thanks

Mike

ps: I have not yet tried the cheese omlette and chips you heartily recommended on your trip down to Southampton.

she's 76 and can just about handle the CD player. i dont think she has a turntable anymore. Computers, MP3s etc are totally alien to her.   Looks like I'll buying the DVD....

Do you (or someone you know) have a turntable set up that will convert to digital to burn a CD of the vinyl?  (It's not that practical, and takes ages, but it's doable.)

Bloody hell. That was simply wonderful.

This should be part of the national curriculum.

Just watched an hour or so of fswl with the kids - they loved it.
I'd initially only put on the bluebell cockle shell bit to show life before nintendos and ipads but they insisted on watching more!
Bombarded with questions - it was great!
It really is an educational film from that point of view. they want to watch the rest tomorrow

Great stuff ;D

here's a tiny sample of what The Telegraph had to say...

...this is delicate acoustic music, gilded with lovely orchestrations. Singing in a sweet, lilting accent, Anderson has a gorgeous way with a mournful melody, and writes beautifully observed lyrics. And there isnít a bagpipe in earshot.

and The Guardian says this...

..the songs are an antidote to the "shortbread-tin ghastliness" of the Commonwealth opening ceremony

Some sales figures...


Quote
With nearly 50 albums to his credit since 1998 - a tally that includes self-released CDRs, live sets and studio albums - Fife singer/songwriter Kenny Anderson is one of the UK's most prolific recording artists under the less conventional name of King Creosote. Not one of his previous albums has made the Top 75 - three reached the Top 200, with 2011's Diamond Mines collaboration with Jon Hopkins securing his highest previous chart placing of number 82- but with Glasgow staging the Commonwealth games, he was commissioned to write and perform the soundtrack to BBC TV documentary From Scotland With Love. First shown in June, and repeated on BBC Four several times since, it helps to generate sales of 3,926 copies of the King Creosote album, which duly debuts at number 21. As might be expected, the album is an even bigger success north of the border, debuting at number three in the Scottish chart.

The Yes Campaigners should organise mass KC record burnings, like what the Bible Belters did with Beatles records after John Lennon's 'Bigger than Jesus' remark.  Someone needs to whip folk up into a frenzy, so they go out and buy more KC albums with the sole intention of burning them.  Everyone's a winner.  :D
