SNOWY WHITE is something of an unknown known size. Since the beginning of the seventies he is a fond wanted and booked session musicians, but also with several solo albums at the start as a guitarist (and singer). WHITE played with PETER GREEN, played with THIN LIZZY, he accompanied PINK FLOYD and was traveling with ROGER WATERS. In the "the wall" Zarco 1990 in Berlin even partially in the foreground. But a superstar, a guitar hero never became of him, for he is far too modest, of which you can convince yourself in the 25-minute backstage documentation of this DVD. An esteemed musician who is never verscherzte it with his longtime companions, he always is. And his companions came to apparently happy and in spite of closely packed schedules - also to refer to the interview section, than to record a concert DVD SNOWY WHITE AND FRIENDS. No mega-event, whether outdoors or in a large hall, but rather a club session in the "MuziekCentrum de Bosuil" in the Dutch Weert…..
Neo-soulman Matthew E. White first played with neo-Laurel Canyon songstress Flo Morrissey at a Lee Hazlewood tribute concert, where they performed "Some Velvet Morning" together. Pleased with their chemistry, they embarked on recording a collection of covers, hunkering down with White's Spacebomb collective to cover ten songs from the past and present.
Propaganda vocalist and latter day solo artist Claudia Brücken (A Secret Wish, Love: and a million other things…) teamed up in 1987 with electronic pioneer Thomas Leer (The Bridge, The Scale of Ten) to create Act: a one-off pop cabaret par excellence. Music so cutting edge, the sessions were documented by Tomorrow's World. And songs that crossed the chasm from mid-Eighties acts of sophistication to late-Eighties acts of dancefloor hedonism. Artwork includes previously unseen photographs of the duo by Patrick Lichfield.
Unexpectedly, Texas became a popular sensation prior to the release of White on Blonde when Chris Evans made the soulful single "Say What You Want" the de facto theme song on his morning program on Radio 1. On the strength of his support, Texas was catapulted to previously unthinkable success, and the majority of the fans who thought the number one single was fine shouldn't have been disappointed with the full-length album. A combination of roots-rock and soul, White on Blonde occasionally has more style than substance, but Sharleen Spiteri's gorgeous vocals and the band's professionalism make the record a charming, ingratiating listen.
