The 4 Phases of Graham Day

The 4 Phases of Graham Day

Playing tracks by

The Prisoners, Solarflares, Prime Movers, The Prisoners Mk2, Graham Day & The Gaolers_ and more.

The picture (giving the title to this cloudcast) is undoubtely Graham Day's rarest record in the world ever, with only 5 numbered CD copies released (Graham has the #1, of course) and is a personal anthology with tracklist selected by Graham for himself, in 2001, a time when, for various reasons, we've been more in touch. But this selection you are listening has very little to do with such rarity and its a quickly-made eclectic tribute to the 30 years career of one of my music heroes, previously a MRUK broadcast as Capt Stax Show n.62. To make the mix more fluid I havent included 4 final live oddities (cos the audio quality was poor). They were: Prisoners - Melanie French TV / Graham Day & The Gaolers - Be On Your Way Live 2010 / Solarflares - Valerie Live in Venice 2002 and Prisoners - Love Help Me Live in Milano 1986, the last 2 have a special meaning and value to me cos I was there at both concerts! Enjoy

There are already a couple of friends asking me abt the "4 Phases" original tracklist and story. Since its been on the (now gone) MilanoMods website as record of the month in 2003 here's a link for it, with a short review http://tinyurl.com/63ksp2d Beware, the page is passed thru the wayback machine, then thru google translator (cos in italian) so there are some errors
