The Sub channel version of this track has Mark Knopflers & Sting voices very loud, and drum part in low background. As always with this multichannels cds, strange version appears :-)

Nothing From the Vault
Sting.com has this decided to relase a new DVD to all the fans.
Now here was my plan, I was going to add a special page for this release but this didnt happend.
You may ask why, why no pictures fromt this dvd ? Well the answer is simple: This dvd is like all the othere sting.com releases: nothing new.
Perhaps you find some new small interviews but most part are old.
The Music:
All tracks on this dvd is only snippets running from 1-2 minuts. This is so sad. This must be due to copyrights.
The videos:
Several part has already been release via the sting.com page or on the police.com page.
The interwiev with sting and dominic sitting in stings boat house is a good example. The quality is so poor, I wonder, couldnt they find the original recording, and just use the low quality web release !! how long time was this since we saw that  !!
The "hidden" parts:
I only found The Police part, and again old stuff from the wiskey session was used. All tracks snippets, and cut up.
Bonus stuff:

It get worse, some bright cleark at the marketing deparment at universal filled this part of the dvd with several full length videos and tracks, with all kind of “artist” i newer heard of or would have no wish to hear or see. Perhaps stings tracks was cut becase of all the “nice” bonus artist. Yes and now we all will go the shops and buy lots new cds for x-mas because of the frendly people at universal. Thanks.

Like all the other sting.com dvd release this is indeed a sad release too.

New Album by The Police

“They said to Us that we did not do it. After so many years, people, after all, which come is to listen to Roxanne, no? ”, the guitarist reflects. Yes the improvisation and the new adjustments abound in old hits, a twenty that fit in a concert of near two hours of which fans black leg will throw in lack jewels such as Bring on the night.

But everything is not lost. The musicians have been working in new material. Will be new album, sixth? “Perhaps a little later, when we finish the tour. The door was closed. This tour has opened to the door a little”. Summers smiles.

Saturday Night Live - STING. Finally had some time to check this track.
The track was played the 17 october 1987 with audience. However the track is not live at all. Sting is doing lip synch, infact everything is playback. The track is: "We'll Be Together". Although it's not a proffisional studio production it's a sort of: "live studio recording"
The lyrics start almost half way inside theoriginal text and at the end Sting sings:"

If you need somebody - call my name
If you want someone - you can do you can do you can do the same
We are the one
We are the children
We are the one

Well be together tonight
Well be together tonight

This recording runs for 3:36

I just got a german promo with the following tracks:
1) Come Again - Remix, 2:58
2). Come Again - Album Version, 2:55
3). Fields of Gold, 3:32

Recently Itunes released: Come Again, Alternative Version, 2:51 and Fields Of Gold (New Version), 3:32
It shows that the versions on this cd is the same as the ones from Itunes.
But the format from itunes is compressed and when you burn it to cd format it ofcause goes to wav-format.
I used Cool Edit v2.0 and checked the Spectral view (the tracks range of Hz).

The Itunes has a range from, 0 to 16000 Hz.
The cd has a range from 0 to 21.000 Hz.

So it's possible to track converted mp3 files or Itunes as they lose Hz.
The cd is a cdr and could therefor be a fake cd, but as it has a higher quality than the Itunes it's not a fake.

Ps. the range in Hz for normal ears goes from 20 to 20.000 Hz.

31.10.2006 I received sad news today: Ken, sorry to bring you the awful news via e mail:

At 7:40 AM E.S.T., 12:40 PM London time, my friend Jo Jo Laine, passed away in the U.K. Her children Laine Hines, Heidi-Jo Hines and Boston O'Donohue were with her.

Jo Jo was staying at her old home, I believe it was called the Cotchford Farm, also Brian Jones' home near Hartfield in Sussex, 50 miles southeast of London.

Though Jo Jo lived in St. John's Wood in London, she knew the current owner of Cotchford Farm and would often stay there. On Tuesday or Wednesday she fell and hit her head at the house. She was rushed to the hospital. Jo Jo held on for about three days and passed away peacefully this morning e.s.t.(early afternoon, about 12:40 PM, in London).

Boston phoned me tonight to say that Jo Jo died very peacefully. Although I am personally devastated, as the kids (understandably) are, "Uncle" Ira Kaye told me today that Jo Jo only had a couple of months to live because of the cancer.

Here are the MySpace sites of her kids:

Boston O'Donohue

Laine Hines
http://www.myspace.com/lainehines

Jo Jo's sites
http://myspace.com/jojolaine
http://myspace.com/jojolaine13music

Sorry to bring the news via e mail. Needless to say I am devastated. We met in 1986 and had a deep friendship over the years, growing even closer the past couple of years with long transAtlantic phone calls.

When driving earlier today my roommate & I heard "Strange Brew" - Ginger Baker having written the finalpage in her book. At the Bagel shop the song "Penny Lane" was on when I walked in, followed a song or two later by Boz Scagg's "JoJo". My roommate called to say that a bus had two signs which said "Jo Jo Travels". She is sending messages to us.

Blue Nights

"A Piece of me
A Piece of you
A Piece of both of us is gone it's true
I try, deep in my heart, to try to forget you
all the nights, all the nights are Blue

We will never forget our Jo Jo. She is always in our hearts.

AbsoLUTE Sting - Songs from the labyrinth:

Let me say this, hearing this album reminds me of when I first heard the track: "Spread A Littel Happiness" At that time I was jumping around to Don´t Stand So Close To Me and Spirits In A Material World.
Very difficult to belive your ears - like your ears are trying to trick you. But its not a trick then or now. This is AbsoLUTE Sting playing and singing. Im not a classic type, so it perhaps not very fair for a one time listening:

1). Instrumental Lute, this is like a intro to track 2 which also starts right after.
2). Sting sings, tha track has also stings backing vocals added. About 1:30, 3-4 voices singig (very cool) beware the lute which sneaks in :-)
3). Sting reads a letter !
4). Sting sings very deep and very soooooooolw
5). Sting sings and lots of lute
6). Takes me back to Brimstone & Treacle, stings reads a letter
7). Very instrumental lute (slow and fast playing)
8). Sting vocals + lute
9). Sting reads another letter.
10). Fast singing lots of backing vocals (not sting)
11). Another letter reading, on a rainy day
12). Instrumental Lute
13). Sting sings very soooooooolw
14). Instrumental slow and fast lute
15). Another letter read for a blackbird.
16). Here is the HIT track with a littel delay for about 400 years :-)
17). Fast singing
18). More reading
19). My god this track is so dullll
20). Instrumental lute trip
21). Hmmmm no good
22). This is his last letter....
23). Aslo very dulll.

As a Police man / and admire of Sting for may years this cd wont be used much. Sorry but it ain't my cup of tea but perhaps I´ll get to like it in another 400 years. 2/6 thats all.

BONO, STING, LOU REED, BRYAN FERRY, JOHN C. REILLY, RICHARD THOMPSON, LOUDON WAINWRIGHT III, LUCINDA WILLIAMS ARE AMONG THE DIVERSE ARTISTS ON THIS TRULY EXTRAORDINARY COLLECTION

Asked about the Sting contribution “Blood Red Roses,” Willner says, “He was totally natural for this subject. He comes from Newcastle. He grew up hearing these things--it’s interesting how you hear a lot of little Beatles melodies in these songs. You know, Liverpool was a big port, and Australia and Maui and Cape Cod. Sting grew up with a lot of these songs, as did John C. Reilly. So he just came over to the studio, I gave him some songs and he just jumped into the process.”

The complete ROGUE’S GALLERY track listing is as follows:

CD 1

1. Cape Cod Girls - Baby Gramps
2. Mingulay Boat Song - Richard Thompson

20. Little Boy Billy - Ralph Steadman
 

60 songs were recorded for ROGUE’S GALLERY; 43 appear on the album. “Hopefully, there will be a volume two. I have half of it recorded already.” Willner says: “I came to age in the late sixties and early seventies of variety shows and concept records. I look at these records like you’re eating a full meal. There’s always your entrée, your vegetable that you don’t like but it’s good for you. And you want to cover it all. You need to establish the unknown, the famous, the obscure. Usually in the past I’ve always found that the secret weapons on these records are any new artists because you’re coming at it without expectations. And there’s other people that you’ve heard for years--but on that side it goes to another level.” Source: www.anti.com

27.03.2006 Eberhard Schoner and Friends - crossing times and continents

New dobbelt album, to be released: 21. April 2006.

Wenn Eberhard Schoener sich heute seinen alten Songs und Arien wieder zuwendet, geschieht das, um durch Verknüpfung eine Gleichzeitigkeit entstehen zu lassen. Er verbindet sie mit seinem heutigen Musikverständnis, indem er sie zwar grundsätzlich bestehen lässt, aber Neues hinzufügt. So geschehen bei seinem aktuellen Werk „Eberhard Schoener and Friends, crossing times and continents“, welches am 21.04.2006 veröffentlicht wird.

Auf dem breit gefächerten Doppelalbum geben sich namhafte Künstler wie Sting, Andrea Bocelli, Gianna Nannini, Kurt Moll, Willy de Ville, Helen Schneider die Klinke in die Hand.
So trommelt Wilson Cafe Sambarhythmen bei „Only the Wind“, dem Song, bei dem Stings Stimme so ungewöhnlich eingesetzt wurde.
Es wird der Gesang von Suman Chatterjee aus Indien und Nasser Kilada aus Ägypten verwoben mit den Stimmen der Mönche aus Nepal.

Es entsteht ein Terzett in „Blind windows in my eyes“ zwischen dem großen Bariton Kurt Moll, dem Countertenor Charles Maxwell und dem Rapper Bob Lakermann. ine Dreidimensionalität – das Ineinandergreifen von Zeit, Stimmen und musikalischen Strukturen – die nur Eberhard Schoener in einem solch beeindruckenden Zusammenspiel inszenieren kann.

I just got a cool mail from JO JO LAINE's manager:

Dear Kenneth & Stingme/Police webpage:

RE: The Jo Jo Laine 45 RPM "Hulk" b/w "Dancing Man" (see note from 28.11.2005).

From: Rock Journalist Joe Viglione, Manager of Jo Jo

JO JO LAINE & Sting
Jo Jo Laine is on the phone from the U.K. right now. 3:20 PM on Wednesday February 22nd, 2006 (She's in London, I'm in Boston as I write this) Sting is definitely on "Hulk", we're not sure about "Dancing Man" right now - but are looking into it.

Sting played Bass on the song. We have to find out about Andy Summers participation. Brian Adams (the former manager of Denny Laine, not the rock star) has the original tapes.

MAYBE Sting is on bass on "Dancing Man", we have to confirm it with Brian Adams. We also have to confirm if Andy Summers is on both tracks, one track or none.

It is 100% that Sting is playing bass on HULK - Jo Jo is telling me this on the phone right now. Sting &
Andy were not famous back then, they were hanging out at Shepperton Studios a.k.a. Rock City Studios.

David Knopfler of DIRE STRAITS was recording in the next studio. Jo Jo explains: "Everyone partied and
went to the pub. Rod Stewart used to rehearse there. There was many times when Rod was with The Small Faces and Denny (Laine, Jo Jo's ex husband) at the pub - it was like the greatest. Those days don't exist anymore."

Andy Summers used to come to Jo Jo & Denny's house. (when they lived on Yew Corner. A.A. Milne of Winnie The Pooh fame had rented the home before Denny & Jo Jo purchased it). Andy's girlfriend at the time was American. (I don't think the girlfriend was Andy's ex-wife Robin Lane.

http://www.nndb.com/people/738/000024666/

I introduced Robin Lane and Jo Jo Laine to each other at THE CHANNEL NIGHTCLUB back in the 1980s and was telling Robin about Jo Jo's records - that Jo Jo may have worked with Andy Summers. Robin replied "I was MARRIED to Andy Summers". Now that was funny and coincidental - I had no idea at the time.

But back to the Jo Jo Recordings: This was before the Police became famous. It was just at the brink of when they hit. At some point you can interview Jo Jo, but not right now as we are busy working on the release of her first full CD on the Washington D.C. label WAMPUS entitled THE BEST OF JO JO LAINE.

The rumor is that Brian Jones died in the swimming pool at that house, but that isn't true - Brian Jones
died in a house near the House on Yew Corner

I found a "new" recording with Sting. It's the Greek single cd release: Pyx Lax - I Muvrini featuring Sting.

It's a different version than the orginal version on the album by I Muvrini called: Leia.

This version has added greek vocals and extra instruments, but keept close to the original.

"New recording with Sting" well I can't confirm it for sure yet, but it seems to be true that both Sting and Andy Summers appeared on a 7" vinyl album by Jo Jo Laine, the record has 2 tracks. Sting and Andy only appears on the track Dancin' Man (Ken Pickett / Edwin Phillips). The record was released in 1980 on the label Poplar Records. Produced by Brian Adams.

There is another remix of The Hoxton Whores vs. Jimmy Cliff & Sting -People (Dub Mix) (9:34)

10.11.2005

A new unofficial remix has turned up, it's a nasty techno version of The Police - Message In A Bottle (SOS) (Sander van Doorn Remix) (7:11)

Its not very often something like this happens, but it has. If you haven't heard of this one in the recent months then get out from under that rock, get reading, then get listening...!

Sander van Doorn has come out of the blue and remixed The Police - S.O.S. into a tech-trance wonder! This production was debuted by Armin van Buuren at Sensation White back in July and since then its been working up a storm on dancefloors everywhere. ALL the big names have been thrashing this track out - Tiesto, Paul van Dyk, Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten, Paul Oakenfold, you name them, they've played it - and all the dancefloors have been lapping it up! Finally this is out on an extremely limited run on an as yet unknown label. So if you're lucky, you might be able to get hold of a copy. Anyway, a review beckons...

This track has three different introductory sections - each of which could be seen as the individual elements of the track once its in full swing. The first part is a light percussive section, the second is a short section with some massive, massive, beats and the third is a trancey interlude with a quiet bass and muted beats. This triplicate introduction kicks the track off into 'that SvD sound' - big, thick beats, a quality covering of percussion and smooth, deep, flowing basses. As you near the break, short reverbed vocal snippets from S.O.S. can be heard - taking those who haven't heard the track before by surprise and building the anticipation for those that have. The breakdown itself encapsulates more eerie vocals on top of filtered beats and percussion. There is a solo S.O.S. section for a moment where the "sending out an S.O.S." vocal is repeated along with its nice acoustic guitar backing. This builds the right amount of atmosphere for when the track is thrown into a set of huge beats before filtering itself up and back down, in true SvD style, back into the main techy flow. At this point, the track has immense power - the moments after the vocals in tracks are always strong and this one is reinforced by the superdeep bass and excellent techy sounds that Sander van Doorn is able to produce. This track is fantastic and unsurprisingly and rightly so it has been utterly rocking the dancefloors out there. If you get the opportunity, do not miss out on this.
Conclusion:
Allow me to re-iterate: This track is fantastic. You just cannot miss out on any opportunity to get this simply stunning vinyl. One of the best tunes this year. SOURCE: ivibes

SONY-BMG Sound Track
The unprecedented double CD of world famous artists, soundtrack arrangement with BMG Music, guarantees the film a significant elevation in exposure and marketing opportunities, thus, giving this first of its kind international film every opportunity to reach its true break out potential. The title itself, CAMINANDO, is a gypsy anthem recorded 20 yrs ago by the great Camarón and is currently proposed to be rerecorded by Cigala and Sting in Spanish/English for our title song.

FIRST from LAST EXIT. Impulse Studio tape.
The recording are all different then the Last Exit tracks dicovered 1/2 a year ago. Stings voice are not the main vocals, on some of the tracks the text is shared by two vocals. I assume that this tape are recorded from a earlyer period, at a time where Sting still had't found his skills !
Or perhaps this tape has a blend of tracks from different periods ?
Lyrics will be updated as soon as possible.

1). We Got Something, 4:05
2). Truth Kills, 4:41
3). Whispering Voices, 2:56

Last Exit: Updatede the lyrics to Don't You Look At Me, thanks to Dean Ward, he also tell me the following: "I played in a band on the cruise liner Canberra alongside Last Exit and remember playing the song Don't you look at me on deck with Sting in about 1975/6.I played on Canberra, oriana, Arcadia and Himalaya between 1972-1977-three months a year. Really good times. Most of the time the bands had to play strict tempo stuff (including last exit) but once a week on a Friday, a few of us would get together with Last Exit and do a rock night in the Alice Springs bar (that settles it..it was definitely the Canberra..maybe Stings age is catching up on his memory :) ). Some of the passengers would join in as well if they had guitars with them..Obviously this was before Sting became famous..but he was still a hit with the women even then! :) Cheers Dean
LAST EXIT and more Last Exit.

No problem - keep coming back and you'll soon be hooked to Sting ;-)

One TATU fan corrects me about the release date of Dangerous & Moving:

Interscope gave exact dates:
17.10.2005 - worldwide
18.10.2005 - USA & Canada

Thanks again! You got ahead of Tatu's office and they got stoned when they heard the dates. It was funny.

Kiss, kiss, Olga

The first song on the Miles Davis-album "You're Under Arrest" (1985) is called "One Phone Call/Street Scenes". It features Sting as a french policeman.

The 7'' version of "Message In A Bottle" is an edited one, which runs 3:50 min.

TATU with Sting - news from: TATU - Unofficial site of group TATU:

Sting took part in the recording of TATU new album Dangerous and Moving
Time of publication: 17.06.2005 (12:30)

International superstar and renown instrumentalist Sting played the bass-guitar part on the song "Friend or Foe" that will appear on the forthcoming TATU album "Dangerous and Moving."

Martin Kierszenbaum, TATU's A&R representative at Interscope and co-producer of the song with Robert Orton, shared details from the exclusive recording session. Martin and Sting are old friends. Martin called Sting from Los-Angeles several weeks ago. At that moment the musician was performing in Chicago as a part of his American tour. Martin asked if Sting would play bass on "Friend or Foe" a song Martin had written with Dave Stewart (from The Eurythmics) . Stings replied that he really enjoyed TATU's first album. He asked to hear the song and added that he would be happy to play.

The recording session took place in New York several days later when Sting was in town to perform a concert. He met Martin at the music studio. Sting made the atmosphere of the entire recording session fun and casual. He came to the studio only with the bass guitar hanging on his shoulder, listened to the "Friend or Foe" and played the bass-guitar part straight off.

Sting's part drove and enhanced the song as well as fitted perfectly with Julia's and Lena's exciting vocal performances on the track. For the track, Sting used his legendary Fender P-bass with which he's recorded since his days with The Police. After recording the part, Sting smiled and laughed "That was fun. Source: Official site

Sounds like a nightmarish idea, but official website of Russian duet Tatu informs that Sting has contributed with bass guitar on the track 'Friend Or Foe' from the upcoming Tatu's second album. The track was co-written by Dave Stewart. It's not known yet when the album is due to be completed and released.
