That's very interesting and reassuring in a way, because when I listened to his last two(three? four?) albums I kept but wondering "is he actually aware of what he's putting out there? overproduced jam tracks?"SoundCurrents32 wrote:I met Satch the other week, and he said that he "feels sorry" for all of his albums (semi-jokingly, of course). He said it was because as soon as he feels he's beginning to get somewhere with a song, it's instantly taken away from him, mixed, and sold. The only way he can continue to develop his songs is in live concerts, but this is obviously after the record has been released.27 wrote:Satch is not the main blame for this, however, for his producer has held back a few creative songs that went over his head. I thought the album was alright, a little bland, but I'm sure Satch is far from over as far as new material is concerned.
"My vision? These records aren't my vision at all!" he said. "They're the basis of something, but certainly not what I want them to ultimately be!" (or words to that effect; I can't remember exactly).
I guess this is a big problem of record companies demanding albums.
And although I doubt joe would (alas) even consider moving to favoured nations(pride...?) it could be an excellent solution.
And I have nothing to base my assumption on either, just a random feeling.
