Haden, Petra

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Haden, Petra - Petra Goes To The Movies Petra Goes To The Movies
Pop New - LP 87219 Anti
Sealed 2013 Original. “Petra Haden's One-Person, All-Vocals Take On The Who's Album The Who Sell Out Was A Crazy Stunt She Completed On A Dare, But Also A Stunning Artistic Statement That Showed What Determination And Crazy Vocal Skill Could Do To A Classic Album. Turn It Inside Out And Make It Small Enough To Fit In Your Pocket, Basically. A Decade Later, Haden Decided To Do The Same Thing To A Collection Of Her Favorite Themes From The Silver Screen. She Applied Her Elastic Pipes To The Likes Of "God's Lonely Man" From Taxi Driver, "Superman Theme," And "Pascal's Waltz" From Big Night, Singing The Lead Melodies But Also All The Backing Parts As Well. It's Another Impressive Achievement That Sounds Better Than Sell Out From A Technical Aspect, Thanks To The Improved Recording Facilities And The Lack Of Any Of The Slight Wobbles Or Occasional Pitchy Moments. The Only Thing Missing Is The Sense Of Spontaneity And Slightly Wacky Joy That Was Transmitted Though Her Vocals On Sell Out. Here, She Is All Business And Very Precise, Playing Everything Straight Even When The Songs Are As Playful As "Carlotta's Galop" From 8½ Or As Breezy As "Cool Hand Luke Main Title." It Ends Up Sounding Majestic And Artistic, Where Sell Out Sounded Giddy And A Little Silly. The Other Difference Here Is That She Breaks The All-Vocals Approach A Few Times -- Singing With Backing From Pianist Brad Mehldau On A Yearning Version Of "Calling You" From Baghdad Café, With Guitarist Bill Frisell On A Tender "It Might Be You" From Tootsie, And With Frisell And Her Father Charlie On "This Is Not America" From The Falcon And The Snowman.” – Tim Sendra, AMG... more details
