"CRISIS" ISAAK - The best medication to face it !

Are we in Crisis? Yes, we are and there’s plenty of them!

Since it’s Easter time I, sinner, confess myself: I do appreciate this gentleman’s whom I’m speaking next. I’m sure, although some will deny (Oh Judas!!) that men, women, young, old, hetero, metro, by’s, gays, lesbians and so on melted tear or equivalent when listening to Chris Melodies. It’s part of our nature.

“Wicked Game” was edited 20 years from now. Everyone knows this tune from one at the time almost unknown musician to today’s also actor and host of his own tv-show, Chris Isaak.

I remember that I bought this vinyl called “Wicked Game” before being edited around here. It was a mix between one best-off and original tracks since it was Chris fourth studio album.  In the following year he became widely known after the soundtrack of David Lynch’s movie “Wild at heart”.

Chris doesn’t belong to the musical landscape that usually inhabits my  neurons but is in fact a unique performer.  Nearly 53 he still has the same vitality and singing capabilities that are his trade mark. He edited recently a new album called “Mr. Lucky” and, i believe the name fits well. I’ve always admired his personality and above all he is a man of principals and as he assure, he likes to take care of his own, a friend. His band, his mates are the same for almost 20 years.

I won’t take more of your time but wouldn’t want to skip this date…

I’ve chosen from his last record after the first listening, 3 tunes that although the message is almost the same, they capture all that I’ve told you until now. Pay attention to the third track on the player.

In the video bellow, a mini interview where you can watch some stories on Chris background and the delicious tale on how he and his brother “strike” their mother with ballads that from ballads they’d get only the name.

On the video player, opening, there’s the acoustic version from “Wicked Game”

To you all a nice Easter.

 What all schoolchildren learn,

 Those to whom evil is done,

 Do evil in return." 

 H.W. Auden, 1939
